Before you start telling yourself, “I’m really just an ordinary person with ordinary ideas,” there are some simple ways to THINK BIG.
A great start in learning how to do anything is GOOGLE IT. Just type in ‘how to post to my business Facebook page’. A whole page of ‘HOW TO’s’ will pop up. You will even find many video tutorials. But this is the very first step in thinking big. Once you get your head wrapped around the idea that you CAN DO ANYTHING… you will. Your thinking will only get bigger and better. YOU CAN BE A BIG THINKER!
MAKE TIME So now you’ve convinced yourself that you CAN, you now need to find the time. BIG thinkers plan! They figure out HOW it will fit into their plans. The more organized you can be with your ideas, the more productive you’ll be at implementing these new BIG ideas.
