If you’re serious about building a phenomenal life, then it’s highly likely that you set your goals for 2014. Take a good look at those goals. Are they big, compelling and audacious? Or are they small, puny and unimpressive? It is important to set goals that stretch your imagination and that give you a chance of becoming a person of accomplishment. Otherwise you’ll just remain where you are, never moving beyond what you can see around you.
The problem with setting puny goals is that they don’t command your attention, they don’t motivate you enough and in the end you don’t accomplish much. You need to enlarge your territory. You must look beyond where you are right now.
You must maximise your life, it’s the only one you’ve got! Life is the biggest moment. If you don’t seize the moment to live and truly live meaningfully, powerfully and with unlimited possibilities, you miss the whole point.
Apart from broadening your vision, expansive thinking diminishes threats. In people with a purpose and a quest to achieve great goals, you find the inability to be small minded, petty or unnecessarily jealous. When you have something big that engages you, you are less likely to feel threatened by someone else’s vision and progress because you are also focused on creating the best you.
Decide today to enlarge your territory. Be a lifelong learner. Expand your horizons through learning opportunities. Read books. Attend seminars. Join networks and mastermind groups that stretch you. Expand your vision through participation in community activities and through travel. Observe life everywhere you go, and start thinking expansively in your options.
This February, and for the rest of the year, say “NO” to small, shallow thinking. Every day, go out determined to not merely stick your big toe into the shallow edge of the water, or just to walk on water, but to jump right in, wade indeed and swim with the big sharks!
