The Magic of Thinking Big
||This profound book inspired many people to dream and think big. It contains practical actionable advice on how to become confident to achieve unbelievable goals

||The book provides a lot of great advice on how to deal with people and how to help them: treating them kindly, understanding, and respecting. The idea is that once you help other people you can get what you want as well.
- Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success.
- How we think shows through in how we act. Attitudes are mirrors of the mind. They reflect thinking.
- A person is a product of his own thoughts. Believe Big.
Adjust your thermostat forward. Launch your success offensive with honest, sincere belief that you can succeed.
Believe big and grow big.
- To fight fear, act.
To increase fear - wait, put off, postpone.
- Belief, strong belief, triggers the mind to figure ways and means and how-to.
- Those who believe they can move mountains, do. Those who believe they can't, can not. Belief triggers the power to do.
- Belief in success is the one basic, absolutely essential ingredient of successful people.
- The "Okay-I'll-give-it-a-try-but-I-don't-think-it-will-work" attitude produces failures.
- Do what you fear and fear disappears.
- Doubt, disbelief, the subconscious will to fail, the not really wanting to succeed, is responsible for most failures.
- Think doubt and fail.
Think victory and succeed.
- Those who harbor the second-best attitude are invariably second-best doers.
- Nothing - absolutely nothing in this life gives you more satisfaction than knowing you're on the road to success and achievement. And nothing stands as a bigger challenge than making the most of yourself.
- Cure yourself of excusitis, the failure disease
- Go deep into your study of people, and you'll discover unsuccessful people suffer a mind-deadening thought disease. We call this disease excusitis.
