Little Things Make a Bigg Difference
Bigg Success is life on your own terms. Today we want to focus on growth, one of the five elements of bigg success.
Little things can make a bigg difference on our path to bigg success. Oftentimes, they’re mostly attitudinal adjustments. We’ll discus six of these little things today.

Instead of taking an extra fifteen minutes, give an extra fifteen minutes.
Over the course of a year, if you were to show up fifteen minutes earlier and stay fifteen minutes longer, you’d have 120 more hours of productive time. That even allows for four weeks of vacation!
This doesn’t have to be work. It really depends on your objectives. You may get home fifteen minutes earlier, put an extra fifteen minutes into studying for that certification you want, or work on building relationships for an extra fifteen minutes a day.
Instead of telling someone about you, ask about them.
Ask your spouse or significant other about their day. Ask that person you just met about the work they do.
This makes a bigg difference in so many ways. It’s amazing how much we can learn from others. By letting the other person tell you about themselves, you learn about yourself and your world.
I find this ironic. You seem more interesting when you let the other person talk about themselves. They find you more interesting because you’re letting them talk.
You always tell me, Mary-Lynn, that the less I talk, the more interesting I am!
Instead of sitting back, lean forward in your chair.
This is somewhat related to the last one. One benefit is that you’ll stay awake! But the other benefit is that you will be more engaged with the person with whom you’re talking. You appear more interested. So they feel better about themselves.
Instead of walking around with a frown, flash your bigg beautiful smile!
When you smile, it makes people wonder what you’re up to!
Tony Robbins says: “Motion creates emotion.” Even when you don’t feel like smiling, by telling yourself to smile you’ll soon see the world in a different way. Even in the worst of times, we can find something to smile about.
Instead of seeing the bad, see the good.
This applies in so many ways. We’ll just discuss a couple.
How about the people around you – like your co-workers? Look for their good traits. See what they do well. Compliment them on it.
How about your company? Don’t focus on all the things you don’t like about it. Focus on the things your company is doing well.
Along that line …
Instead of focusing on the problem, think about solutions.
There are a lot of problem-finders in the world; we don’t have enough problem-solvers.
It’s easy to find a problem; it’s a lot harder to SOLVE IT. But bigg goal-getters know that’s how you find bigg success!

Phil Gerbyshak called us with a comment on our Lone Wolf or Lead Wolf show. He said:
“For a long time, I lived as the lone wolf but, in the last few years, I’ve realized that being the lead wolf is a lot more fun, a lot more rewarding, and a way to get a whole lot more done and experience some bigg success. So thanks for inspiring me with this article and podcast and for all you do to help us be a bigg success. Make it a great day!”
