4 Steps That Show You How to Think Big When Starting Small

How small companies become big? 

Most people have ambitious hopes and dreams for the future.  But there’s a difference between those who succeed, and those who fail.  Thinking Big.  When people think big, a fundamental shift happens in the imagination.  It opens the mind to innovative ideas, energized motivations and limitless possibilities.  Thinking big introduces a mentality of industriousness which eliminates the psychological hurdles that interfere with progress.

You’ve Gotta Risk It to Get the Biscuit

Author Karina Fabian suggests that “As a small business owner, you may have dreams of your company becoming the next Amazon or Apple, or you might be content making a splash in your local community. Either way, just because your business is small, that doesn't mean you can't think big.”

Think Big Start Small

Here are a few tips on how to revolutionize your life by thinking big:

1) Get to Know the Cream of the Crop

If you want to know what it takes to think big, study as many success-stories as possible.  Learning from the best can help you compare notes, and come up with a compelling strategy to excel.

2) Brainstorm & Make a Game-Plan

Dreams can only exist as dreams until they’re put into action in a tangible way.  Once you have a vague idea of what you want to accomplish, start doing your homework. Figure out exactly how to get the ball rolling.

3) Commit to Flexibility

No matter how elaborate or structured your game-plan might be, never forget that life is versatile and unpredictable.  Adapting to change can actually help you discover efficient strategies.

4) Go for It

Once you’ve crystallized what your journey should look like, then it’s time to embark.  Be careful not to let second-guessing or anxiety trick you into bad habits like procrastination.


A lot of times, thinking big either feels intimidating, or unrealistic.  But the truth is that sometimes crazy idealism is exactly what it takes to make a difference in this world.  When the Wright Brothers invented the airplane, everyone around them thought they were lunatics.  But the simple fact that they dared to think big ended up changing human civilization forever.  If there’s one thing to learn from their example, it’s that thinking big is the only way to truly leave your mark.  If you like what you just read from our blog, you’ll love the various informative courses, workshops and events listed on our websites and social media.
