Thought for the day 3rd of May 2011
“Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures” by H. Jackson Brown Jr.
I am convinced that we should learn how to think big. Thinking big makes you a rich personality with a big vision. It enables you to think more than just about your daily routine. It inspires you for greater achievements in life. Think big and you will create great things. Think small and you will achieve nothing beyond average. You have to dare to do it. Spend some time each day allowing your mind to dwell on those great things you want to accomplish in your life. This will start attracting them into your life and give you ideas how to achieve them.
On the other had thinking big does not mean relishing big pleasures. Big thoughts and big pleasures should not go hand in hand. They can, but they usually are enemies rather than friends. Big pleasures take away a lot of time from you and devour your creative energy that should be used for doing something that would take you to your dreams. Pleasures also result in laziness and absence of concentration. You should have in mind that by saying pleasure I mean sensual pleasures that can easily get you addicted. Well, anything can get you addicted and small pleasures (those that do not consume a lot of your time) are ok, but don’t let any pleasure to become an idol that you worship. So, think big thoughts, but relish small pleasures.
