Everyone knows the story of the 300 brave Spartans. There was even a movie by the same name with the lead protagonist King Leonidas. He was a visionary king, who went against an army of thousand Persians, which reminds us of the power to think BIG. For Leonidas, it was the BIG idea of uniting the whole of Greece and giving them a rallying cry to unite against the Persian invasion. To this day, the Battle of Thermopylae is considered as the biggest win for a small group of soldiers against thousands. All it took was a single thought. One single thought that hits the mind of very few fortunate. A thought that makes you stand out from the rest. If it continues to stay on your mind for a longer duration of time in the right proportion, it becomes an empowering habit of thinking big, making you big and propels you towards obtaining pinnacle of success.
Think little goals and expect little achievements.
Think big goals and win big success.

How to think Big?
Just thinking and waiting for things to change without any effort from your side won’t bring success any success. Rather it comes only if you back it with determination and action. But, how does one do this? Here are 5 easy tried wins, implementing which will make you start thinking big and achieve your goals.
- Get out of the well of being well
Thinking big means thinking in ways that are beyond what you normally do. You must come out of your comfort zone. Working on the tasks which are within the scope of your role is something which anyone can do, but to do something big, you must dig deep and reach beyond your capabilities.
- Explore and explode
The world is full of opportunities. Explore yourself, try new things, venture to new terrain by thinking differently. Every effort of yours will explode new ideas, bring various scopes. Your one step can open a new chapter in your life and project you towards success.
- Sense your Conscience
Whenever you perform any task, you need to work in such a way that it creates value to you and your organization. Ample factors affect your work, so before taking any decision you need to think wisely by applying your conscience. Learn to follow your conscience as it gives you the power to choose, to think, to change and to excel.
- Work on right things and make things right
Working on right things and making things right both are different but carry the same importance in the process of doing big. Simply thinking big is like dreaming things. It won’t let you become big. Rather, ‘thinking big’ in the right way will do the job. Select the right set of tools for yourself and work with a motive to make things right. This will make you productive, innovative and efficient.
- Put effort on the output than misleading expectations
You will never see all the steps that will take you to your destination and most of the people get derailed. The more you expect other than your work output, the more is the chance of misleading and not achieving the right output from your work. You should always do your part of work, striving towards the right output without keeping expectation.
