Your definition of BIGG success

Our definition of BIGG success doesn’t make judgments.
It’s not up to us. It’s up to you.
It’s not up to others. It’s up to you.

However, it is BIGG success. And you’re a BIGG goal-getter. You won’t be content with ordinary success. You’re special. You’re a winner.

And you’re independent. You think for yourself. You don’t worry what others think or say. You’re going to do BIGG things.

You’ll show them. You will reach BIGG success. And when you do, you’ll be able to say that you’re a self-made man or woman.

It’s part of your definition of BIGG success. You have to make it on your own.

But you won’t. We know. You’re shocked to here us say that. But stick with us.

Losing advantage

Picture a person who is looking for a new job. The perfect opportunity presents itself. It’s the right job in the right career in the right company in the right industry. She knows an influential person at the company. But she doesn’t contact them. So she doesn’t get the job. She never even got an interview.

We’ve witnessed this type of situation a number of times. There are a variety of reasons why people lose advantage by a poor definition of BIGG success.

Today we’ll talk about three of them:

  • They lack assertiveness

    They don’t want to be a bother. They’re too shy. They worry too much about what other people think.

You have to get over it. People want to help you. It’s in our nature. But nobody can read your mind. So you have to let us know what’s on your mind so we can lend a hand.

  • They’re insecure

    They think asking for help will make them look weak. It doesn’t. When you ask for help, you show how strong you are. You’re confident enough to admit you need assistance from others.

  • They’re too proud

    We learn from the Bible that “pride comes before the fall.” We think it just applies to being too proud of your accomplishments and not showing the proper gratitude.

But sometimes the fall is imperceptible. You’ve fallen and you don’t even realize it. You fall short of reaching your full potential. Or you waste time and don’t reach it as fast as you could. So you don’t fully live up to your reason for being.

So don’t be afraid to reach out to others. Interdependence, not independence, leads to BIGG success!
