Hey guys so the new year is so close and i had the idea of talking about thinking bigger than what you set your mind to.Most people limit themselves to a particular area they set for themselves in life and because of that they keep revolving round the limit they set for themselves.
How can we break through the limitations we’ve set for ourselves?
Sometimes we assign the role of the ‘Big Thinker’ to some people, but we don’t necessarily see ourselves in that role and that is because negative peers and colleagues tell you why something will never work, or your own internalized voice, telling you the same thing. But if you want to overcome this habit you have to let go of your self-limitations and give new things a try. Here are four steps you can use to expand your horizon:
Get Comfortable with Discomfort: this is all about taking risks, you don’t like something but you know that one way or another it can help improve your goals, the only way to know for sure is by taking the risk.
Set the Right Kind of Goals: Some believe that “thinking big” means you should set wildly ambitious stretch goals to inspire yourself to greater heights but i believe that we sometimes set unrealistic goals for ourselves, and as a result, we’re miserable. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment by setting ambiguously huge goals, set a goal that is attainable.
Find supportive friends: Having a strong, positive network is crucial, having people around you that inspire you, support you and are ready to help you, not friends that say yes to every idea you bring to the table.Often, when we’re asking people to support us, we’re just asking for approval. But if we’re looking for results, we have to be comfortable with the feedback of people asking us to think bigger and try harder. If you’re really looking for people to push you, you want them to say, ‘That’s great and I think you could improve this’.
Become the Person Others Want to Help: Other people determine whether or not we’re successful. Thinking big requires understanding that the biggest and most meaningful projects simply can’t be accomplished on your own. Other people are going to open the doors and spread your messages. So how can you get others involved and inspired to help? You make commitments and fulfill them, you learn in action, and you deal with your voice of judgment without being critical of others.
