The Imperative of Thinking Big: Why Zooming Out is the Secret to Achieving More.

navigation america Oct 25, 2023

Hi, It's me again.

The term "thinking big" has been thrown around so often that it's easy to dismiss it as just another buzzword. But let me tell you—underestimating the power of thinking big is underestimating the power of your potential. As a performance coach who's navigated the intricacies of multiple industries, I've seen firsthand how transformative thinking big can be. Doing it big and doing it now is the first step into a thousand mile journey.

Let's dive into the why, the how, and the incredible benefits of seeing the bigger picture.

The Problem with Small Thinking

Small thinking is safe. It’s the equivalent of staying in the shallow end of the pool because the deep end intimidates you. But here's the thing: If you stay in the shallow end, you'll never experience the thrill of diving. You'll never know what it's like to push past the constraints of gravity and break through the surface tension of the water.

Small thinking limits your vision, and consequently, your achievements. It leads to incremental success, sure, but not disruptive, game-changing innovation. Small thinking doesn’t get you to the moon; it keeps you perpetually circling the Earth's atmosphere.


Why Thinking Big Matters?


1. Unlocks Creativity

Zooming out and dreaming big sets your creativity free. When you stop worrying about the immediate hurdles, you can mentally explore multiple scenarios without limiting yourself. When you're not worried about tomorrow and lift your limiting beliefs is when big Sh*t will happen in your life.

2. Fuels Motivation

Thinking big acts as a propellant that fires up your motivation. When you have a bigger purpose, minor setbacks become inconsequential. You're more resilient, more adaptable, and you can pivot with ease.

Quick point, A few thousand years back during the age of our ancestors, if they didn't pivot and adapt they were guaranteed to die. A thousand years sound like a lot to us but it's a drop in a bucket compared how old the human race is.

3. Aligns Your Actions

When you’re clear about your ultimate goal, you can reverse-engineer the path to get there. You no longer waste energy on endeavors that don’t serve your ultimate vision. Get clear on what you want, stop drifting and staying on the surface, go deep. Decide what it is you want in life.

The Psychology Behind Thinking Big

Dreaming big ties into several psychological principles:

  • Cognitive Dissonance: Once you commit to a big vision, your brain wants to resolve any conflict between your reality and your ambitions. Essentially, you’ll work harder to align your reality with your vision. And your intuition will guide you towards what's right because there is a discomfort between your current and your vision.

  • The Pygmalion Effect: This is the phenomenon where higher expectations lead to an increase in performance. Think big, expect more, and you automatically elevate your game.

    Expecting less out of ourselves is the #1 reason we don't achieve our goals cuz they don't challenge us enough.

How to Incorporate Big Thinking

Step 1: Remove Fear

Remember, your big vision serves as your North Star, not as an impending deadline. It's a guide, not a guarantee, so there's no reason to fear it. Be enthusiastic about reaching it and not all doomy gloomy

Step 2: Break it Down

Rome wasn't built in a day. Create a roadmap that aligns with your end goal and start with manageable tasks that inch you closer to it. Remember, it must be big enough to challenge you but not too big to demoralize you. Slowly but surely your "Challenge" capacity will be very high.

Step 3: Surround Yourself with Big Thinkers

Man I cannot emphasize on this more, stop hanging out with people who have a loser mindset, don't take action, keep you or bring you on to their level. They are not your friends, stop giving any fuc*ks about them. Doesn't matter how long you've know them. Stop using BS excuses like "They don't affect me anymore" or "I tune them out" or " I only see them once a quarter". Fuck your excuses to hang out with people you've outgrown. On your death bed, they're gonna be your top 3 regret in life. Be ruthless about cutting people OUT of your life.

Rant over.

And the old adage is true: You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Surround yourself with people who inspire you to dream and act big.


Conclusion: Ignite Your Potential

Zooming out and thinking big does not mean losing sight of the small details; it means not allowing those small details to constrict your potential. You were born into a universe of endless possibilities. The world needs you to embrace that potential, to dream big, and to act even bigger. There are miracles happening around you all day , there are miracles happening all around the world with peoples health, finances, relationships etc. Believe that Miracles can happen in your life too. 

So let me challenge you: What's the BIG vision you're too scared to share? Start there. Then, think bigger.
