Think Big

Mentors - Dr. Ernest Holmes

“We must become the thing we want. We must see it, think it, realize it, before the creative power of Mind can work it out for us.”

Few people in limited situations have a mental likeness of plenty. This likeness must be provided. The thought must be large enough to cover the whole of the thing desired; a small thought will produce only a small thing. The very fact that all is Mind proves this to be true. All is Mind and, because it is, we can draw from that Mind only that which we first think into It as a reality.

   We must become the thing we want. We must see it, think it, realize it, before the creative power of Mind can work it out for us. This is an inner process of the expansion of consciousness. It is a thought, growing and realizing within. All can do this who wish and who will take the time and trouble, but it will mean work. The majority of people are too lazy to make the effort.

   Daily we must train our thought to see only that which we wish to experience; and since we are growing into what we are mentally dwelling upon, we should put all small and insignificant thoughts and ideals out of our thinking and see things in a larger way. We must cultivate the habit of an enlarged mental horizon, daily seeing farther and farther ahead, and so experiencing larger and greater things in our daily life.

   A good practice for the enlargement of thought is daily to see ourselves in a little larger place, filled with more activity; feel more and more that things are coming to us; see that much more is just ahead, and so far as possible, know that we now have all that we see and all that we feel. We should affirm that we are that larger thing; that we are now entered into the larger life; feel that something within is drawing more to us; live with the idea and let the concept grow, expecting only the biggest and the best to happen.

   If we never let small thoughts come into our mind, we will soon find that a larger and greater experience has come into our life.
