I think big just like you do. But thinking big will only take you so far.

At some point, you’ve got to think small.

As I started getting into personal development. I started hearing all of the same stuff. Most of it was centered around two things.

  • Those that think big
  • Those that think small

Thinking big was what you ALWAYS wanted to do. Why? Well because that’s how Trump and every other successful person thinks.

As for those who think small

Thinking small was only for your loser friends, coworkers, and haters. They’re never going to achieve anything in life.

Because their mindset sucks. Oh and because they still watch TV.

But I realized I was only shown one side.

People like Napoleon Hill, Stephen Covey, and Jack Canfield don’t show you the other side. It’s the secret that we all try to find.

They teach you to follow another persons script. Be like Trump. Be like Bill Gates. But what about just being yourself?

To think big according to them will leave you lonely and frustrated. They brainwash you to be scared to think small.

As a matter of fact, everyone who’s on a different path becomes your enemy. The reason is that they think small.

Your longtime friend doesn’t think like you. Well, he’s a small thinker so you’re not gonna talk to him anymore.

But who are you to turn your back on someone for thinking differently? Sure, if they hate on you or downright go against you.

Turn your back on them and never see them again. However, if they are supportive of your mission be a friend to them.

What is the Secret they’re keeping from you?

I started studying personal development when I was 11 years old. I was the kid who felt that there was more to life than what I saw.

So I got to reading and studying the world around me. After many years of reading this and that. I finally started putting things together.

The only way I could compare it is….

Imagine your sunglasses fog over in the car. You remove them from your face and wipe them off with your shirt.

Putting them back on you can now see clearly.

That’s how figuring out the “Secret” was for me. I went to bed the night before not knowing. But by the next day, I completely changed forever.

The Secret is….

That Thinking Big and Thinking Small are required for success of any kind. But first, you have to learn their true meanings.

Definition of Thinking Big: Thinking Big is how you create your vision. You get to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Something greater.

Definition of Thinking Small: Thinking Small is how you bring that vision into reality. To think small means that you work your script.

Now that you understand the real definitions of thinking big and thinking small. We can move onto the “Secret”.

But first I want you to concentrate on each word. Because most people will miss what the Secret is.

Hell, it took me 9 years to see it.

And I want you to see it and then understand it. That way you can follow your own script while creating your own Heaven on earth.

The Secret to getting everything that you want.

All comes down to two ingredients. Those ingredients are as you know thinking big and thinking small.

Using their true definition you know that to think big means to create your vision. But thinking big without balancing it with thinking small gets you nowhere.

So here are the exact steps:

  1. Create your vision
  2. Turn that vision into a script
  3. Follow your script every single day (Think Small)

When I first figured out the Secret. I didn’t want to believe it. It was so simple.

I thought that the Secret was magical. That once I figured out what it was I’d become godlike or something.

But it was simple and common sense.

While I didn’t become fully godlike. I did, however, break achievement down to a step by step process.

Well as close to a step by step process as I could.

Because there are lots of unknowns in this game. Maybe it’s a breakup or maybe it’s a project not working out like you thought it would.

Regardless you’ve got 3 steps that WILL get you what you want. I’ll give you 3 examples of what I’ve achieved using this Secret.

While I’m always stepping up my game. You can use these same 3 steps for yourself as well. Not for anything writing related.

But to get whatever kind of life that you want.

Let’s run through a quick example

If you’re a skeptic like I was at one point, start with something small. Use these 3 steps for whatever you want to.

This is simply an example.

Create a Vision:

People complicate what a vision is. Vision boils down to one thing. What is it that you want? For this example let’s say it’s a pair of headphones.

That is your vision.

Turn that Vision into a script:

Now you create a script aka plan of action. This is what will guide you from day to day.

You can download my entire Script Creator here. It’s what I personally use and many other people use to live their own life.

Follow your script every single day (Think Small):

You’ve created your vision. Turned it into a script. And now it’s time to follow your script every day.

This is where thinking small comes into play.

You see most people would still be stuck in the thinking big phase. They will only last a few weeks at most. Then they’ll be back to the drawing board.

You, however, will be thinking small. Because you understand that thinking big is ONLY for creating your vision.

Everything else comes down to you following your script. That means that you stop THINKING BIG.

And instead, you start walking towards your vision.

Some days that just means hitting the gym and eating right. Other days that means pulling an allnighter.

Before you know it you’ve achieved your vision. Without waiting you create another vision and get back to playing the game.

But first Create YOUR Script

  1. You make a good point. Many people have the “big dream” but lose sight of the short term goals needed first before the big one can happen. You can think CEO CEO CEO all you want but until you lay the first brick your never gonna get there.

    It’s funny coz everybody wants to be the boss but they fail to realize that same guy at one point was bagging groceries or working a till, ie started from the bottom as well.

    With many of these colleges pumping out worthless degrees like it’s going out of style only makes things worse. Lol there’s not even jobs for half of these kids when they get out, it’s sad.

    I remember seeing this billboard off the highway that Illustrates this point perfectly; it was an advertisement for some bullshit devry style 4 year college that probably wasn’t even accredited, picturing a guy with a suit/ tie on that read in big bold letters: “MBA today, CEO tomorrow” lmao….? Lol how realistic is that?

    Lol what trash. An MBA is probably the #1 most over saturated useless degree there is right now excluding art majors. Unless it’s from a IV league school no one gives a shit. I can’t tell you how many guys I seen with MBA’s who are like managers at TJ maxx & shit lol…sad.

    These colleges know that yet they still push these worthless majors on unsuspecting youth for the money, they actually don’t care whether or not you’ll be able to actually benefit from the degree.

    College for the most part is a scam. It’s is all about the money, that’s why they make you take 6 years of material that could honestly be learned in half the time. Unless It’s in in demand trade or a STEM field it’s pretty much a waste. College doesn’t prepare you to be a CEO, it only prepares you to be another cog in the wheel. Most would be better off working a job(s)/ hustling on your own & saving money.

    Yea got off topic there on a rant about college, but I was reminded just now of those years of my life I wasted in school because I failed to follow my own script, and instead followed the script of others.

    “People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan” forget who said it, but’s it’s true.


    • Great comment as usual.

      College really is a total scam. I only went there for 1 year before realizing the truth. It took me about a year to accept the “real world”.

      I’ve met people in the entertainment biz. Rappers, wrestlers, and sports guys. It’s all just a business and act. Rappers put on a show at a club and then go home to their families.

      I haven’t read the whole book, but I recommend you buy Shadow Men. It is an eye-opening book. Of course, do your own research.

      That’s an awesome quote btw.
