We take on the common misconception that people who dream and succeed BIGG aren’t constrained by the same forces that the rest of us are.
Click the player to listen to this episode of The BIGG Success Show Podcast. Below is a summary of our discussion.
It’s not that people who succeed BIGG don’t face the same constraints that we all face, it’s that they don’t see themselves as being constrained.
What does that mean, how do they do it, and how can you do the same thing?
Let’s pull out the whiteboard for The Professor’s BIGG idea…
“Don’t focus on why you can’t. Focus on why you can and how you will.”
Let’s take a look at this concept and how to apply it.
1) Change your focus from can’t to can
Those who succeed BIGG spend a lot of time telling themselves all the reasons why they can’t do something. They focus on why they can and how they will.
By changing the focus from “can’t” to “can”, they open their minds to all sorts of possibilities. Because your mind will go where you lead it. Get it thinking about why something can’t be done, it will come up with all kinds of reasons to justify your opinion.
To succeed BIGG, you have to get your mind to think of how it can be done. In like form, it will start producing a number of ways to overcome all the obstacles that hold others back.
Sure, some of their ideas may not work. It doesn’t matter. What does matter – they are paths to the possibility of achieving the impossible. One of them will work.
2) Focus on how you will
If you never get out of the gate … if you just assume you can’t win the race … you won’t. And there are three factors to help you do this:
A) Dream BIGG dreams
B) Tap into your experiential wisdom
How to dream BIGG
You must dream again – dream the kind of dreams you dreamed when you were young.
Maybe not the exact same dreams, but dreams that are as BIGG as those conceived when you were young…
- When the world was your oyster.
- When there was nothing you couldn’t do.
- When you could imagine all of the things that you would accomplish.
- When you couldn’t wait to grow up so you could get to all these wonderful ideas.
Tap into your experiential wisdom
The good news is…
You’re better equipped to achieve your BIGG dreams now
Because if you combine the dreams of your youth with the wisdom gained from your experience, you can achieve things that other people only fantasize about – if they allow themselves to think about them at all.
The difference now is that you have an asset you didn’t have when you were young.
You have experiential wisdom – Your experiences and all that you’ve learned from them. So the possibility of achieving the impossible is more probable! It’s a killer combination for achieving BIGG success!
But many people don’t think about that. They just stopped dreaming BIGG dreams. They accept being average and ordinary, when they could be excellent and extraordinary.
You have to believe again! Then find a way to do it. It only takes one person discovering one way to do anything that’s never been done before. Then the world marvels at the accomplishment.
You are that one person!
You were born to dream BIGG dreams. You know it because you’ve done it. You were born to be excellent and extraordinary. But first you must remove the limits that keep you from dreaming BIGG.
Tap into your imagination. Dream about what can be. Then start thinking of ways to do it. Believe – really believe, deep down … to your inner soul – that you will win. You can achieve this one thing. You will achieve this one thing. Now, take action and achieve BIGG success!
