The Think Big Revolution

Instead of "when I start doing" think "I am doing"

Instead of thinking "when I start doing" think "I am doing" -- then big things will really start to happen for you and the others around you.

So often we think of ourselves as planning to develop rather than thinking of ourselves as developing... we don't feel we are worthy of the "I am doing" moment. Rather we explain ourselves away by staying in the "when I start doing" moments. It's safer. It's also self-sabotage.

To live without integrity is to purposely diminish your own chances of success, your chance of contributing in the biggest way you can to the world.

In the end your integrity is all you got. It is your worth.

George Orwell once said, "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." Thinking "when I start doing" rather than "I am doing" is a lie... a lie to yourself.

What truths will you tell? How will your integrity be made manifest?

It is simply true that some people will not become millionaires, even though most of us could if we wanted to. For some their mission and their passion will not lead them on path that includes large sums of money. True prosperity is health, wealth, love and creative self-expression in balance. When are lives are out of balance (which is a flow, not a static state), we may appear to have quantity in one area of life, however the quality of the other area suffers. In the long run of life, there is SO MUCH MORE THAN DOLLAR$

Great things are accomplished on small scales and with small amounts of dollars. I have run a Center for 25 years that has changed the lives of thousands. I have done so with little capital and lots of love. It was and is Thinking Big about touching hearts that has kept me going. And it doesn't matter if it becomes a million dollar business - it is making a difference.

I aspire to abundance of quality, which may or may not include a large quantity.

Remember the stories you are hearing in the news these days, of people who put money over all else, and the thousands/millions of lives they have negatively affected by their greed.

Think Big, Think Abundant, Think Quality and Balance and do all things with peaceful intent (no harm to anyone or anything).

How safe it seems to be 'protected' around the idea of planning, rather than the action of doing. I can make it all seem as if I will arrive soon, as long as I continue to plan. Planning is sitting in idle. First to fourth gear will come at these moments that I believe that I am doing, developing, harnessing the integrity that is so meaningful to success. Success falls short 'when I'...your call to THINK BIG bleeds into the power of stepping up to the plate- it's a full count...what's your call? Where are you aiming?!

I could not agree more. I tis also about having the capacity to stop the "negative gremlin" from creating into the mind. It is about CANCEL CANCEL I AM.............

How often I forget that when I'm thinking about and planning my BIG dreams, projects and actions, I'm doing!!! I'm visioning, I'm mentally rehearsing and prepaving! Everything that's ever been manifest starts on an even subtler level than thoughts, then we think, yes, then feel, then do. A huge key to our success is to be sure we're thinking, feeling and doing what's aligned with our happy, healthy visions instead of the horror stories I know I can get sucked into. My big doing and most important doing is interrupting the horror stories that overwhelm and scare me and retell the stories that uplift, that turn me around so I'm facing the in the direction of the life I want to live. And then I step into an attitude of gratitude in advance of seeing manifest that which I truly want. Happy, healthy stories ~> happy healthy lives. Enjoy your journey!

Michael,

I always promote the true. The true will always makes us free! I admire big achievers that earn their positions base in loyalty, trust, justice, ethics, and honesty. They are the ones that I really respect. The ones that always look the benefits of others as well.

I am proud of your way of thinking.

Karla

Good call Michael - and I am guilty of the "when I" statements. You are right - it is self-sabatoge because it is safer! I am THINKING BIGGER today thanks to your insight.

I am in total alignment with Patricia's comment. Most peope have the Be, Do Have turned around. Their belief is that when they Have the money, title, mate, perfect body, etc... they wil then Do what they say they 'want' to do and thus BEcome who they want to Be. When we begin with 'who we really are', then we are always Being authentic and thinking in the 'I am' tense instead of 'I will'. Then our doing automatically comes from that authentic place of 'who you really are', which then of course puts you in perfect alignment with Having the future of The Next Highest Version of You.(tm)

This is a topic in the book that I am writing (partial title above). The one important factor we have left out of the equation is that in addition to 'think' we must also become aware of how we 'feel'. Simply thinking 'I am...' will do little in the way of acheiving results until we begin to actually feel 'I am...' doing.

And like Patricia said, "Start with gratitude..." certainly one of the most powerful feelings available to us, then think, "I am..."

Sometimes, when people start "thinking big," they forget to acknowledge or they discount the actions and steps along way, focusing only on the BIG result and then getting quickly frustrated when it doesn't manifest.
"I am" are the two most powerful words in existence. "When I.." negates the importance of the present and the being, doing and having that build the life we desire. Start with gratitude for what is, take action and acknowledge the action with gratitude for the vision you are building, and then enjoy the journey of building the BIG life. Release the past, Envision the future, Be and Act in the Now!

The truth is that I am always doing! I always have too many things on my list, so it doesn't appear that I am doing some of them. Actually, I'm doing the prerequisites required before I can do the task itself. That is still part of doing that task! Thanks, Michael!
