When I was positing in the 10 things Thursday thread, I was reminded of The Book Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz. If you have not heard of it, I am not surprised. It was first published in 1959. However, it has had a quiet impact on some important people’s lives. In the book Wins, Losses, and Lessons, Lou Holtz talks about how when he was unemployed and unable to find a job, he picked up a book that encouraged him to make of list of 100 dreams. The Magic of Thinking Big is that book. He wrote the list out and after reading it, his wife suggested that he add 101… get a job.
But in the spirit of listing, do you think that you could list 100 things that you want? Would they all be little things or would some of them be massively big things. What are some of the more crazy things on your list? What is your number 1? If you completed it, (and it is not easy) what is your number 100?
I did this a few years back, but I think I am going to do this again. I challenge you to think big and write down a list of 100 things that you want. It can be tangible items like a deep fryer, or it can be general things like to be happy. But the only rule is that they need to be for you. World Peace does not count unless you expand it to say that it will bring home a loved one or the weapons dealer down the street will lower his prices.
