Title: The Magic of Thinking Big
Author: David Schwartz
Mediocrity in you will find its way out of your system and you’ll be thinking differently after reading this book.
You will embrace that greatness that lies at the bottom of your heart. The greatness, that will try to escape from where it’s hiding and try to manifest in everything that you do.
I realized that sometimes, we sabotage ourselves because we thought we aren’t enough. We formulate ENDLESS excuses not to push through with our plans and ideas because we are scared. FEAR cripples us and thus hinders us to think more of ourselves and our capabilities.
But this book will show you the magnificent result of a positive and creative thinking mind.
And so as the drastic result of faith and a person who dreams big.
The best takeaway I got from this book is about excuses. The real reason behind it and how it feeds a “reality” in your mind that you will eventually believe for the longest time. Excuses are our self limiting roadblock to success. These excuses protect us from hurt and disappointments, yet will also hinders you to move forward and become a better person.
We have to keep in mind that success is never a success without any failure along the way.
Be prepared to turn your mindset upside down. Something that will challenge you, to think outside the box and be bigger, bolder and brighter that you were.
Legendary football coach Lou Holtz once said, ‘After the 1967 season, our entire staff was fired at South Carolina where I was an assistant. My wife bought me a book entitled The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz. So I sat down and made a list of all the things I still wanted to accomplish in life, and there were 107 of them…my life changed after I made that list. I think I’ve accomplished 95 of them.’ After his stint at South Carolina, Holtz would assume the head coaching position at Notre Dame and win the national championship in 1988.
