The things we think about are the things that we eventually become. They are the things that consume us. As long as we’re going to think we might as well think BIG instead of small.
Let your small-minded co-workers fret about the small things. You’re on a road to bigger and better things and you now have better things to do than to be drawn into some petty quarrel.
If you aren’t yet self-employed the only thing you should be thinking about right now is how to make that reality.
You need to visualize yourself as you want to be and you want to lock that image in your mind and think of it frequently. The things we think about the most more often that not end up true in the end.
If you are self-employed then you should think about the big picture and not the small little details that seem big, but really just sap your creative and physical energy.
If you’re out of shape and want to get in fantastic shape then you will need to imagine your body as you want it to be. Fix that image in your mind everyday and especially while you are at the gym. Know the outcome before you even get there.
If you’re bad with women, imagine yourself as the suave James Bond type you know you can be. Don’t fret about getting a girl’s phone number, think about getting a thousand girls’ phone numbers.
If you worry about getting one phone number and don’t get it you will be sad and frustrated. If you aim for a thousand numbers and only get a hundred, well that’s a pretty good deal in my book.
