Grow BIG by Thinking Big.

Remember, It pays in every way to think BIG.

Don’t sell yourself short. You’re better than you think you are.

Stretch your vision. See what can be, not just what is. Practice adding value to things, people and to yourself.

Use the big thinker’s vocabulary. Use big, bright, cheerful words that promise victory, hope, happiness, pleasure. Avoid words that creat unpleasant images.

Get the big view of your job.

Think above trivial things. Ask yourself, “Is it really important?” Focus your attention on big objectives.

Most of us make two basic errors:

1. We underestimate our own brain power.

2. We overestimate the other fellow’s brain power.

Because of these errors many people sell themselves short. But along comes the fellow who isn’t concerned about intelligence and bags the job.

What really matters is not how much intelligence you have but how you use what you have.

The thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you have.
