Yea I know, it’s my bad.
I actually haven’t read this David Schwartz’s classic book called <The Magic of Thinking Big> yet. Even though it’s been sold over 4 million copies worldwide since 1959, I have yet touched this already-purchased book on my bookshelf.
But one truth I have learnt the past few years is that the life of your life is determined by the size of the problem you solve.
You can either be an extraordinary car salesman for BMW, or you can be Henry Ford who found an international motor company that supplies cars.
You can either be an excellent pilot that saves hundreds of lives in each journey, or you can build the Virgin Airlines like Richard Branson to ensure safety of millions of lives on a daily basis.
You can either be the top-notched financial trader in Wall Street, or you can build another Berkshire Hathaway like Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger being the role model of billions of people on how to wisely and strategically invest in great opportunities.
I don’t mean to downplay a certain profession, a certain position, a certain industry, a certain hierarchy, a certain personal choice or whatsoever.
I respect ALL the players and contributors of the ecosystem. Without one or another, no one can succeed.
But if we are given a choice, if we are bestowed a talent/strength/gift that only YOU out of millions of people have…
I believe it’s our duty to MAXIMIZE our unique ability to make the world a better place.
That’s what the idea of thinking big means to me.
It’s because it aches me to see so much potential being wasted and underutilized in people I meet every day.
There are so much more they can do.
There are so many problems the world is experiencing that beg for solution.
There are so much abundance in the world that people are not tapping into to make their lives more extraordinary.
I don’t only see who you are, I see who you can be.
There’s a thousand times more on what things can become, not just what they are right now.
Whether you think you can or you cannot, you are right.
Give yourself the permission to go 10X bigger than you currently think you possibly can.
Give yourself the permission to pursue goals that you don’t even dare to dream of.
Give yourself the permission to be the PIONEER of a scary idea that can potentially change billions of lives worldwide.
As cliché as it sounds, you only live once.
Think big, act bold, and create an avalanche of endless success – for you and for others.

P.S. I nearly forgot…
If ideas were rainfalls in November, then they were tornadoes in December.
Once again, I’ve managed to tap into the magic of big ideas that’s catered for my country. It really can change millions of lives here where people can transform into the most badass version of themselves so they get what they want, when they want, with whom they want.
It’s like creating an army of Spartan 300, only to 1000X the size of that.
Anyway, it will be a HUGE project I am starting soon. Will be tapping into the power of social media, the power of transformative learning experience, and the power of deep emotional triggers that inspire people to get rid of all the bullshit excuses and go BIG for their own dreams.
Fvcking exciting and I can’t wait to let you know the progress along the way.
P.P.S. I am writing this post in a co-working space for entrepreneurs (the one I mentioned last week). Damn, I love this place because the environment is subconsciously boosting my own productivity. Really easy trick to get things done.
Okay. Seriously done now.
