The Magic of Thinking Big

'The Magic of Thinking Big' is a title of a book that fmd dozens of hardheaded, practical ideas, techniques, and principles that will' enable you to harness the tremendous power of thinking big, so as yourself the success, happiness, and satisfaction you want so much.




Here are a few simple "do's" to help make your social environment first class:


1. Do circulate in new groups. Restricting your social environment

to the same small group produces boredom, dullness,

dissatisfaction; equally important, remember that your

success-building program requires that you become an

expert in understanding people. Trying to learn all there is

to know about people by studying one small group is like

trying to master mathematics by reading one short book.

Make new friends, join new organizations, enlarge your

social orbit. Then too, variety in people, like variety in anything

else, adds spice to life and gives it a broader dimension.

It's good mind food.


2. Do select friends who have views different from your own.

In this modern age, the narrow individual hasn't much

future. Responsibility and positions of importance gravitate

to the person who is able to see both sides. If you're

a Republican, make sure you have some friends who are

Democrats, and vice versa. Get to know people of different

religious faiths. Associate with opposites. But just be sure

they are persons with real potential.


3. Do select friends who stand above petty, unimportant

things. Folks who are more concerned with the square footage

of your home or the appliances you have or don't have

than with your ideas and your conversation are inclined

to be petty. Guard your psychological environment. Select

friends who are interested in positive things, friends who

really do want to see you succeed. Find friends who breathe

encouragement into your plans and ideals.




1. Be environment-conscious. Just as body diet ,makes the

body, mind diet makes the mind.


2. Make your environment work for you, not against you.

Don't let suppressive forces-the negative, you-can't-do-it

people-make you think defeat.


3. Don't let small-thinking people hold you back. Jealous

people want to see you stumble. Don't give them that satisfaction.


4. Get your advice from successful people. Your future is

important. Never risk it with freelance advisors who are

living failures.


5. Get plenty of psychological sunshine. Circulate in new

groups. Discover new and stimulating things to do.


6. Throw thought poison out of your environment. Avoid

gossip. Talk about people, but stay on the positive side.


7. Go fIrst class in everything you do. You can't afford to go

any other way.
