Magic of Thinking Big with 3 Simple Exercises

“Magic of Thinking Big with 3 Simple Exercises” written by Guest Contributor.

At the recent Empower Network event Tracy Walker spoke about belief in what is possible and used the metaphor of someone who is walking along and see’s a $1000 bill on the sidewalk. They don’t take the time to bend over and pick it up because they doubt that it’s real.

They might actually STEP OVER it to pick up a $1 bill without hesitating! They would leave that $1000 on the ground because they don’t think it’s possible!

Magic of Thinking Big with 3 Simple Exercises

It’s too far outside their belief system..

It’s like we don’t think the $1000 bill is as possible so we don’t give it any attention when it COULD be just as real. But our natural tendency would be to think it’s fake. We don’t feel like we could be that lucky. Opportunities can be right in front of us, but we don’t believe it’s possible we will ignore it and go for something less profitable.

Three Tips To Help With the Magic of Thinking Big

In our online business Mike and I, in the beginning, spent a few months not taking it as seriously as we could have. We were involved in our real estate business which is a good investment. But looking back, we might have been walking over $1000 bills to pick up $1.

We didn’t make phone calls to new sign-ups even though we knew we should from the training we received. We were focusing more on other things. It was literally like walking over $1000 bills.

I started wondering how skeptical I am and how much I believe it’s possible to have everything in life flow to me. Or do I take the safe known route in life and hinder my success by not seeing an opportunity right in front of me.

It’s About Not Thinking Big Enough

Our big vision for ourselves requires us to think beyond what we think is possible today. It takes believing in things you can’t yet see.

Try this little exercise and ask yourself these three questions out loud:

#1 Double your current monthly salary and say that number out loud and practice really feeling that it is possible. If you can’t see and feel yourself making the amount of money you want, you may find a way to keep it away from you. Get used to how it might feel by visualizing details of your life making double your salary. Do this for 3 minutes a day.

#2 Ask yourself “How does it get any better than this? When you go through struggles Instead of asking “Why is this happening?” take it to the next level by asking “How does it get any better than this?” It’s a form of gratitude and telling the universe you are ready to take it to the next level.

#3 Take your current comfort zone and consider how you can step out of it. Do some, “What if’”  statements out loud What if I’m asked to give a speech to an audience of 3000? What if I’m asked to be a guest on a hangout? What if I have an opportunity to speak to someone I admire?  Get comfortable with discomfort and taking risks.

Final Words About the Magic of Thinking Big

It’s important to test your own limits on your beliefs. We need to develop an attitude of constantly learning, stretching our comfort zone and trying new things. Doing something you’ve never done before can be scary because you are pushing yourself, beyond what you expect for yourself.

It’s important to test your own limits on your beliefs. Be an example to all the people that will be following you, “If in our business we’re asking people to take risks,” we’ve got to be an example and take the biggest risks of all.
