Three Inspiring Quotes About Thinking Big

“Greatness” – My wife hugs a very big tree

                                “Whatever Your Mind Can Conceive And Believe It Can Achieve” ~ Napoleon Hill

Chances are, you and I are kindred spirits in that we both have something great that we want to do with our lives. If so, we both understand what it is to dream big and we both know how quickly our confidence can be shaken. “What was I thinking?” are the words that the inner critic whispers in my head when fear and doubt sneak up on me. The words of Napoleon Hill have a way of echoing through space and time to reach me just when I need them the most. Three quotes that always inspire me to think BIG and Persevere are:

1. “Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.”

2. “The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm andhidden from the sun. It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for its existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.”

3. “If the winds of fortune are temporarily blowing against you, remember that you can harness them and make them carry you toward your definite purpose, through the use of your imagination.”

  1. that second quote strikes me the most. i’ve been thinking about struggle quite a lot. struggle can bring forward the greatest, richest growth. but it can also be the force to destroy u completely. the struggle requires courage, perseverance and an objective, a goal, if it is to be ultimately productive. perhaps, the best way is taking it one step at a time, one day at a time, or one hour or minute at a time, if the resistance is strong. thanks for the quoted reminder.
