I know I often encourage my tribe to think big, but can thinking big actually hurt your chances for success?
A couple of weeks ago on the Fireside Chat Call I hosted to speak to potential applicants of the Big Shift Coaching program, I was once again encouraging the participants on the call to Think Big.
And then I spoke to someone who was unsure whether that was possible for her. I continued to encourage her that it was. And then she started talking about her business, her offering and her business direction.
And my heart sank…
Here I was encouraging her to Think Big and yet I know that unless she changed her whole approach to her business – unless she was ready to change her marketing message, her offerings, her marketing strategies and her entire business model, thinking big could actually hurt.
Here’s why – without the proper foundation, thinking and dreaming CAN actually be hurting your chances for success by creating unrealistic expectations and in some instances “delusions of grandeur.”
I have been creating my own universe, my own rules and my own community for years now. So I have forgotten that people outside of my world may not have the business structures in place and the know-how to reach their big dream, with a community to support them and a guide to lead the way when they are lost.
So when is thinking big a good thing?
Can you see how when you dream big, that knowing WHAT TO DO to create that dream and then getting into IMPERFECT ACTION to create that dream, and all the while working through YOUR OWN BLOCKS!
Can you see how when you do that you can achieve the impossible?
Thinking Big may not be what you think
For me, thinking big is a multi-million dollar business that impacts tens of thousands of business owners to create prosperity while doing what they love.
For one of my clients, it’s a great life-style business where she gets to impact deeply a small number of clients and be able to take off 3 months every year.
For you, it may be a small six-figure business where every minute of the day is spent doing what you love and you delegate EVERYTHING you don’t want to do.
So now that I am Thinking Big, what’s next?
All it takes is one step. All it takes is one step in THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
And often, it means a giant leap of faith! Because taking that one step is a big deal if you’re not sure if your dream is possible.
When you can dream big and create the vision of your ideal business and your ideal lifestyle, it still takes the know-how to determine which steps to take EACH day to move you in the direction of your dream.
Here’s what you can do:
- Determine what your vision of thinking big for your business looks like!
- What is my business strategy to get there? (Remember a step in the wrong direction will not get you to where you want to go unless you course correct)
- What action can I take TODAY that will move me towards my vision in the fastest and most effective possible way?
- Repeat daily!
I want to share my gratitude.
I am grateful that you are in my community. You’re here because you have a gift, a skill or some amazing knowledge and you want to be able to make a difference in people’s lives using those gifts. You are here because you know you’re destined for more and it is my mission to move you closer to your business destiny – your full potential. Thank you for allowing me to do what I love.
Here’s to thinking big on your own terms.
And I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic.
