Think BIG!

There is a story about this fisherman. The fisherman spends his whole day looking for fish. On the side of the boat the fisherman keeps an old broken piece of ruler to measure his fish. When the fishermen brings in a catch he takes the fish and measures it alongside the ruler to see if it’s a keeper. Every time the fisherman finds a fish that is longer that the ruler he throws it back. Every time the fisherman finds a fish smaller than the ruler he puts the fish aside for cleaning.

The owner of the marina notices this and goes up to the fisherman to see why he does this. As the owner of the marina approaches the fisherman he says, “Why do you keep throwing back the big fish and keeping the small fish?” Well the fisherman looks up at the marina owner with a confused look on his face and says, “Well because the bigger fish won’t fit in my frying pan, silly.”

The Lesson: Think small and you’ll always get small.  Think big and you’ll receive big :-)

In this weeks’ video I’ll give you a suggestion for setting a financial goal for the upcoming year.  If you place your attention on this one goal, you’ll be off to a great start for 2009. Enjoy!

    Ahh man, I love your blog and I’m definitely feeling this post. The problem that many people have is that they think too small. Thoughts are things. If you think small, you will have small goals, and you will reach them, and that just sucks.

    If people just realized how powerful thoughts are, that could change their world. As for me, I’ve decided to live according to exactly what you mention in this article. The world is there for the taking. That doesn’t only have to do with money, but life in general.

    Thanks for this post Stephen. I’ve subscribed to your newsletter and RSS feed and will be a frequent reader of our stuff. Keep up the great work!

    That is so awesome! And you make a good point. Thinking big can apply to any part of life.

    Thanks for sharing yourself on FE. I saw your recent video post on making more cash with Freebie and you’re doing a great job. You’re so authentic and down to earth. You’ve inspired me :)

    As my good friend Ronny says, keep being YOU!
