THINK BIG, START SMALL, START NOW.

This is the phrase one of my biggest Kenyan financial advisers keeps singing to my head.

Indeed, having a look at it, Every big thing in our world simply started as an idea on someone's mind.
The impact realized once an idea is put down to action is enormous and even the original bearer of the idea can hardly comprehend.

I encourage us all to pick up the courage, kick off the fear and get our ideas down to action. Someone somewhere is not thinking about that thing...that you are thinking of..where as they need it so badly.


Are thinking?
Do you have a start yet?
OK, you've got to start NOW!!!

    I certainly agree with that. I am yet to see a big idea that didn't start small.

        This is certainly a great way to approach life. Too many people these days want things instantly and totally ignore the success principle of patience and persistance in achieving their goals.

        that is very correct Jann,our ideas often spring up like a mustard seed and when well nurtured it grow to become an empire of is own. it only takes a step at a time and a mind of a warrior.

    Simple advice. Effective, timeless, proven and cannot be argued. Too bad so few will recognize it's simplicity, let alone act on it.

    This might be the most concise but straight to the point phrase I've heard. It simply encompasses everything that you should do in starting an online business. Anything besides those three commands is just plain fluff.

    I dont believe in the whole start small idea and let me tell you why..

    Some one might think half an hour is good to start with, but you will soon realize it isnt enough to do well. In my opinion go all out, but have reasonable expectations. Star big as in always aim for perfection and dont be afraid of new challenges and dont back down from opportunities because they seem too complicated at the beginning.

    Go big or go home!

    That is an awesome idea. I would like to add that, whenever you want something badly the Universe helps you with that.

    I first come to the US 10 years ago as an exchange student. Since then I have always known that one day I will come and stay in the US. 10 years passed, I got married and finally my wife won a green card. Now I live in San Diego.

    I gave this example for everyone to see that everything is possible, it all just depends on you. You need to strive for something and you will get it. Now my goal is to earn $1 000 000 so I could help children in orphanages in Belarus and in Ghana. I have this big goal in my mind.

    when you have a big task before you it can seem like a jumbled mess in your head - the trick is to 'unjumble' everything into a list or ordered course of action, then just start working, gradually checking items off that list. worked for me at college, now works in my career.

    good sentences. Without a mission , vision, and risk taker , Success always will stay far from you if you avoid all this around you.
    That is why entrepreneur do have different personalities compare to others. Because what they think and what they do are different. They believe themselves what they think and what they did.

    It is a true fact that some people get caught up in "Analysis Paralysis" - that is when they are thinking too much and not doing enough. At some point, you've got to start doing.

    The challenge is this: How do I overcome this obstacle? The solution is not to "think then act" - rather it is to "think ahead while acting". This the most optimal way to progress and this is how humans are designed. We work our best when adapting to challenges. So go for what you know right now and learn from your mistakes. Keep the ball rolling!

      I know exactly what you mean, i get overwhelmed when i have to think about all that i have to do to get where i want to go. But once i get moving i just keep going. A body in motion tends to stay in motion. Thats a phase.

    My lecturer always told me about the power of a Dream. Martin Luther had a dream, a big dream at that. He said he might not even live to see it come to pass but one thing he was sure of was that it would come to pass. And it did! am sure he smiled in his grave at that moment when it did come true.
    A dream has to start somewhere, It has to be Big to inspire and challenging enough to motivate. But again one has to start executing otherwise it will end up in the graveyard. Start with what you have, most of the times what you have is limited that is why, you start small and work towards the big dream. Breaking long term goals into smaller manageable tasks that can be accomplished daily, weekly etc.
    The law of attraction comes in handy and you begin seeing things work out in ways you had not anticipated because the Universe supports good intentions, noble goals and honest motives.
    I agree with you completely, Dream Big, Start with what you have and Start Now.... why not today? Tomorrow never comes they say.

    That's a nice quote and a reminder for me to start small. I'm always trying to hit it big when I'm just starting out, that bites you back when it's not working the way you expected it to be and you'll stop and wonder what went wrong. One small step at a time, that's the key
