Have You Discovered "The Magic of Thinking Big?"

Last Update: July 08, 2020

Hi WArriors! (I like that one!)

I am currently reading “The Magic of Thinking Big” by David J Schwartz and it has really shifted my perspective lately.

I am realizing more and more the great power of the mind!

A few quotes that stood out from the book:

“Action cures fear”
How many times do we do nothing because we are paralyzed by fear?

Fear of the unknown, fear of lacking ability, fear of __________ we each can fill in the blank.

But rather than stopping in our tracks, we can push forward- taking action, however big or small that action is it will propel us forward.

“To think confidently, act confidently. Act the way you want to feel”

You know the age-old saying ‘fake it till you make it’, I think it holds some truth!

We may not always feel equal to the tasks before us, so sometimes we just need to go through the actions of how we want to be until it becomes our reality.

I am currently working on building my own online business, as many of you are, which has already caused me to stretch and grow a ton.

There are definitely days I am acting the way I want to feel, even though I don’t always feel that way in the moment. But I push forward.

There comes a time when we have to say “goodbye” to our fears and take the plunge. (Hence the picture of my daughter waving as she heads down the slide into the pool 😜)

What action will you take to cure your fears and act confidently?

I'd love to hear about the fears you are overcoming and the action you are taking to get there!

Thanks for sharing your progress and journey with me!

Excellent advice Heidi. We all need to step outside our comfort zone and face the fears that hold us back.

Thanks Dave! Sharing it with others also helps push me into action, it gives me an extra sort of accountability to take those steps and just do it.

Hi Heidi,

I have that book in my Audible Book collection and it's very inspiring and talks a lot about fear.

For me, it's been about blogging and building my online business, putting myself out there - making myself vulnerable on the internet. But the more I write, the more confidence that I start to gain every time I click that 'publish' button on a new post.

Isaiah 😊

Hi Isaiah!

That is awesome you have it on Audible! I am almost halfway through it and I have found it very inspiring as well.

I am right there with you on having fear about my business and feeling confident as I publish new posts, but that is great you are feeling your confidence grow as you keep pushing forward.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
