Lessons From The Magic of Thinking Big.
by Rebecca Olakanmi
The Magic of Thinking Big talks about the need to think positively towards oneself to attain success because success is not acquired by intelligent people but by people who believe they can succeed. The thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you have. We should believe that we can succeed because the size of one’s success is determined by the size of one’s belief.
We should also cure ourselves of failure diseases which are called “Excusitis” Which includes complaining or thinking negatively towards ourselves about our health, intelligence, luck, and age as the hindrance to our success.
We should keep or interact with friends and people that will support us because success depends on the support of other people. We should get the action habit, ideas alone will not bring success except they are acted upon. We should think like a leader by putting people first in everything we do. That is, not doing things for our benefit alone but also for the benefit of others.
