When Little People Try to Drive You Down, Think Big

People Try to Drive

To be sure, there are some people who want you to lose, to experience misfortune, to be reprimanded. But these people can’t hurt you if you’ll remember four things:

  1. You win when you refuse to fight petty people. Fighting little people reduces you to their size. Stay big.
  2. Expect to be sniped at. It’s proof you’re growing.
  3. Remind yourself that snipers are psychologically sick. Be Big. Feel sorry for them.
  4. Think Big Enough to be immune to the attacks of petty people.

When You Feel Your Progress On The Job Is Slowing Down, Think Big

No matter what you do and regardless of your occupation, higher status, higher pay come from one thing:increasing the quality and quantity of your output. Do this:

Think, “I can do better.” The best is not unattainable. There is room for doing everything better. Nothing in this world is being done as well as it could be. And when you think, “I can do better.” ways to do better will appear. Thinking “I can do better” switches on your creative power.

Think Big Enough to see that if you put service first, money takes care of itself. In the words of Publish shore: A wise man will be master of his mind, A fool will be its slave.

Because of these errors many people sell themselves short. They fail to tackle challenging situations because it “takes a brain.” But along comes the fellow who isn’t concerned about intelligence, and gets the job.

Remember, It Pays In Every Way To Think Big!

Think Big

  2. Use the big thinker’s vocabulary. Use big, bright, cheerful words. Use words that promise victory, hope, happiness, pleasure; avoid words that create unpleasant images of failure, defeat, grief.
  3. Stretch your vision. See what can be, not just what is. Practice adding value to things, to people, and to yourself.
  4. Get the big view of your job. Think, really think your present job is important. That next promotion depends mostly on how you think toward your present job.
  5. Think above trivial things. Focus your attention on big objectives. Before getting involved in a petty matter, ask yourself, “Is it really important?”Grow big by thinking big!

Three Ways To Cure Intelligence Excusitis

  1. Never underestimate your own intelligence, and never overestimate the intelligence of others. Don’t sell yourself short. Concentrate on your assets. Discover your superior talents. Remember, it’s not how many brains you’ve got that matters. Rather, it’s how you use your brains that counts. Manage your brains instead of worrying about how much IQ you’ve got.
  2. Remind yourself several times daily, ”My attitudes are more important than my intelligence.” At work and at home practice positive attitude. See the reasons why you can do it, not the reasons why you can’t. Develop an “I’m winning” attitude. put your intelligence to creative positive use. Use it to find ways to win, not to prove you will lose.
Intelligence

3. Remember that the ability to think is of much greater value than the ability to memorize facts. Use your mind to create and develop ideas, to find new and better ways to do things. Ask yourself, “Am I using my mental ability to make history, or am I using it merely to record history made by others?”

How To Develop The Power of Belief

Here are the three guides to acquiring and strengthening the power of belief:

  1. Think success, don’t think failure. At work, in your home, substitute success thinking for failure thinking. When you face a difficult situation, think, ”I’ll probably lose.” When you compete with someone else, think, ”I’m equal to the best, ” not ”I’m outclassed. ” When opportunity appears, think ”I can do it , ” never ”I can’t.” Let the master thought ”I will succeed” dominate your thinking process. Thinking success conditions tour mind to create plans tat produce success. Thinking failure does the exact opposite. Failure thinking conditions the mind to think other thoughts that produce failure.
  2. Remind yourself regularly that you are better than you think are. Successful people are not supermen. Success does not require a supermen. Nor is there anything mystical about success. And success isn’t based on luck. Successful people are just ordinary folks who have developed belief in themselves and what they do. Never-yes, never-sell yourself short.
  3. Believe Big. The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief. Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success. Remember this, too! Big ideas and big plans are often easier-certainly no more difficult-than small ideas and small plans.
