Magic of Thinking Big Summary Lesson 2: Cure yourself of excusitis, the failure disease
Here author says, you must have seen the more successful individual is, the less he makes excuses, But people who have no goals, no plans about their life and don’t know where he wants to go and haven’t achieved anything in his life, always have excuses about his life about not doing anything, they always have explanation why they haven’t able to achieve anything, why they don’t, why they can’t and why they aren’t etc.. and the list for excuses and explanations for not doing anything goes on.
There are kind of people who always crib. They never think and plan for themselves they just talk and crib and at last they give excuses of not doing their work such as,
Today I am tired, il do this work tomorrow
I am not doing this because I am too told, I can’t follow my passion because of my age
I am not smart, they able to do it because they are smart
Luck is with them
Those who have luck only they become successful
And blablablabla excuses explanations, negativity goes on.
The author says, successful people never give excuses, they know what they are doing why they are doing, it is mediocre people who always have excuses for doing nothing, they are not getting anywhere in life because of their excuses and lack of belief in themselves.
Successful people never waste their time on excuses, they know what they are doing is possible and they find out ways to achieve it.
People who believe that successful people become rich and successful just because of the luck factor, so that’s not a fact, luck has very little to do with whether will be successful or not, it’s all about the actions we take on a daily basis. It is we who decides our destiny If you want to become successful, you will follow people who are successful and learn from them, and if you always crib you will surround yourself with negative people who don’t have any plan or goals about their life.
Instead of always feeling negative or complaining start believing yourself, the moment you start believing yourself is the moment you see the difference in your life.
But believing yourself doesn’t mean, sitting at home, watching television and believing that everything will come to you because you believe yourself, no for achieving what you want, you need to get up and come out of your comfort zone.
Your belief your efforts your hard work smart work will take you to the position, what you always needed.
Magic of Thinking Big Summary Lesson 3: Don’t sell yourself short
Here author talks about low self-esteem, most people think too little of themselves, they feel they are not capable of something, or others are much more than them,
For example, when you see someone at high post, and feels that I will never able to get there because it requires so much of talent and intelligence and I am not capable enough, then this is nothing but your low self-esteem,
Here what you need to understand is, that yes even you can reach that position, even you are capable enough it just requires your hard work and efforts and you will for sure going to achieve that.
Instead of feeling low about anything, take that thing as a challenge and go for it. There is nothing you can’t do. It just requires your determination and hard work. Don’t think TOO LOW OF YOURSELF, you have the capability and you can do it. never underestimate yourself, always have confidence and understand your strength.
Magic of Thinking Big Summary: Lesson 4 Use Big, Bright, cheerful and positive words
Our mind doesn’t think in words. It thinks and imagines in pictures, images and in movie form. Hence when we say a particular word our brain imagine it in picture images form, and the pictures you create out of that word will determine how you and others react.
For example, if you say that I failed, your mind will imagine that thing as a failure. if you say that you are going through problems, your mind will take that word and imagine an unpleasant situation, situations which are really difficult and hard to solve.
If you use negative words, then your mind will imagine every negative thing. As you know what you think and say your brain imagine it in a picture images way, and this connection can ruin your entire day.
Hence try to use the affirmation, positive words, such as I am happy, feeling good, I can handle etc.
Don’t use negative words and always use positive words cheerful words to describe your mood feelings. Use positive and bright cheerful words while talking about yourself or about others.
