The Think Big Revolution

This Thinking Big Thing Could Be Scary…

Scary? Why? Because the small thinking powers-that-be do not want us to think big—and they definitely do not want us to act on our big thoughts. They want us to be tame and predictable, hooked up to the IV of television and shopping, living in our comfortable-life comas. Life is so much easier that way. The citizens (that means us) are tame. The corporations and politicians do what they want. The few can control the many. Is that what you want?

Of course not. Besides, if you’re here you are already awake to the contagious, catalytic power of big thinking. You are ready to look inward and outward, to think bigger about who you are and what you offer the world.

I, for one, have pledged to fight consciously every day against the small thoughts that threaten to derail my plans, my aspirations, and my dreams. Sure, I still have them. I’m just like you and you are like me. We are in this thinking big business as a team.

Will you pledge to fight consciously every day against the small thoughts that threaten to derail our plans, our aspirations, and our dreams? If so say so below.

Make your pledge...

I also pledge that nothing will stop me in thinking big because i am dangerously made.My designer is not human but divine.I cannot sit down and be satisfied with the small thinking. Nobody will think for me and i have a powerful brain like anybody else

With you...aside of you...and I'd like to 'stand for' a consciousness in forward progression of our plans, aspirations, and dreams. Your 'stand for' verbage blends better for me that 'fight'...collaboration vs. contention. Thank you Michael for your big thinking leadership~

Michael this is so timely - it feels like you wrote this to me and of course you did because, like you say: you are me and I am you. Thank you for reminding us that we are bigger and that we can win. Yes, I join you in your pledge. A ripple moves the water in a stream or in the ocean.

I, Pamela Slim, do solemnly swear that when my inner wimp pops up her head, I will look at her sideways, shake my finger and say "Oh NO you don't sister!" Then I will give her a hug, pat her on the back, and get busy biggifying my footprint in the world. :)
