The power of thinking BIG

cassie

 

WOW, I would like to earn $100 grand this year!

 

Why not $200 grand?

 

If I could have any car I would have that brand new (Car name) worth $25 grand!

 

Why not a Ferrari? Worth $250 grand?

 

My main goal is to do 25 push ups in a row then I will be happy!

 

Why not 50?

 

All I want in life is to live modestly! That will do me!

 

Why not live like a fucking King? Completely financially free?

 

Leave mediocrity to the peasants. This website is all about living large. If you don’t like living large please hit the little X button in your top right hand corner as this website is not for you.

 

In life we must set the bar high in order to achieve high standards. We must be our own biggest critics. Do not listen to others, listen to yourself for you are the only one that can set your own accurate goals and standards.

 

Today’s article is all about changing your mentality. Changing it from small to BIG. To me small is not okay, being average is not okay. Small and average to me is BORING. I want to make big cash and invite Mr Big Happiness into my life and you should want to do the same.

 

Never settle for the average.

 

Here are the 4 steps for changing your mindset from small to BIG…..

 

1. Breaking Repetitive Thought Patterns (RPT’s):

Any time you think you cannot do something, any time you think a self defeating thought or any time you think to your self this will be hard you must stop, rewind and reverse what you have just said. So if you think “Man, I would like to start up my own business this year and hopefully break even because it usually takes a new business a few years before they start turning over a nice profit”, why not think “Man, I am going to start up my own business this year and make a humongous profit because I don’t even have seconds in my life to break even or make measly returns”. At first this will feel quite strange because your mind may not be used to thinking this way. But after a while it will set in like cement and you will honestly believe in what you are saying and once you believe then you will DO.

2. Learn from the best, ditch the rest:

Do you have any idols that have done what you seek to achieve? If you do learn from them. Study them. Watch what they say. Learn how they think. I bet they don’t ever talk themselves down. I bet they have true belief in themselves. Use their actions as inspiration for how you must act. Do what they do.

3. Imagery/visualisation:

This is possibly the easiest and most fun tool to use. You see a hot car you like drive past you on the road, picture yourself owning and driving that car. You enter/see a beautiful nice house, imagine you own it. Look at your wallet, imagine it ripping at the seams because you have so much cash. You see a beautiful girl, pretend she is your woman. This is so easy to do and it also keeps you motivated to wanting change and new results.

4. Do not be afraid:

This is probably one of the most repeated poems. I never truly understood it until today. But now that I understand it. I can see why it is so repeated.

 

“Our Greatest Fear”

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate,
but that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

– Marianne Williamson

So do not be afraid to be great. Liberate others. Show them the light. Be the inspiration other seek to find.

 

So to end I leave you with this.

Why think little…

When you can think BIG

The Power of Power Naps

The power of power naps

sleep-mask_main

Okay let me set the scene. You are reading something. You know that what you are reading is important and necessary.  Your eyes feel dry, tired and warm and they long for you to close the blinds on your world. You shut your eyes for a few seconds. You could almost fall asleep while sitting at your desk. Your subconscious takes over and you submerge into a world of random thoughts and pictures. BAM! You force yourself to wake up and reopen your eyes to the bright world around you. Now you have had enough. You leave to go lie down and watch T.V. or scroll through Facebook, leaving your work unfinished and yourself disappointed for the rest of your day/night.

We have all felt this before. I have even done this before! But today I am going to share with you a trick I use to beat these unimpressive results time and time again.

I present to you the…

The Power Nap.

The power nap is simple, effective and it works.

How the power nap works:

1. Find a quiet room and keep the lights dim. (Never sleep in a room with total darkness as you may find it harder to wake back up).

2. Lie down. Somewhere soft is good. A bed or couch will do nicely.

3. Set your alarm clock for 25-30 minutes. This allows for 5-10 minutes to fall asleep and the remaining 20 minutes for the refreshing sleep time. Warning! NEVER GO LONGER THAN 20 MINUTES OF SLEEP or you will delve into a deeper level of sleep which is demotivating to wake up from and it will also leave you feeling groggy.

4. Close your eyes relax. Let your mind understand that “I have done all I can do for now. Now it is time for me to let my mind and body rest so that I can continue working later”.

5. BRRRIINNG! As soon as your alarm goes off jump straight out of your downed position and immediately begin moving around to allow the mind time to reconnect and fire up.

6. Continue with your work.

7. Send me a nice comment saying thank-you and how happy you are you read this post ;)

Now for anyone out there doubting the power nap, I’m not hating. Some people just don’t like them. Some people say it leaves them feeling groggy. However I find that 20 minutes of sleep prevents an individual from entering deep sleep which is what will make you feel groggy upon awakening.

Winston Churchill swore by power naps. He used to work 16 hours a day (a tremendous effort, as an average western work day is  8-9 hours). During World War II Winston would nap for an hour after lunch (I don’t advise this long, however it seems to have worked for Winston) then he would continue working up until the evening were he would nap for 2 hours. Then he would again reawaken and continue his work long past midnight.

John D. Rockefeller one of the world’s former great accumulators of wealth also swore by power naps. He would lie down on the couch in his office and take a half an hour nap in his office every noon.

So why not give it a try next time your gas tank is feeling empty and you’re just about ready to give up?
