usually have tons of ideas floating around inside their heads. Some big
thinkers donít produce anything with their ideas, while others go for
it with gusto. Is there really magic involved in thinking big or can
anyone do it? People donít possess magic, they posses character and
determination. There is no magic involved in succeeding in life or
having a great marriage. Anyone can do it if they put their heart and
soul into it.
The magic David
Schwartz refers to in his book, The Magic of Thinking Big is the magic
of realizing the power of God within you and applying that power into
your life. Anyone can have determination, commitment, and ambition, but
a lot of people donít set their minds on those things and so never
reach their aspirations.
Have you ever
wondered why most corporate millionaires canít seem to stay married
for long? Does it mean they do not have character? It may be in their
heart to have determination and commitment to making lots of money but
they have no dedication for marriage.
It is the same way with celebrities. They think big only to the
extent of what they actually want out of life. Most celebrities have
this strong need to be in the limelight and that is why they are in show
business. Their focus is greatly limited to themselves. Loving and
caring for another is a difficult thing for them.
wheels arenít focused on the logistics of keeping a relationship
together; it is the furthest thing from their mind. Their number one
priority is making more money, even though they donít need it. It is
an addiction of desire to want more than you would ever need or spend in
a lifetime. Seventy five million dollars is not enough for these kind of
big thinkers. Maybe ten billion will do the trick. They strive to make
more and more money, while their other half is resentful, lonely and
unloved. They will never have the satisfaction of knowing what real
abundance in life really is, or to feel the satisfaction of contentment
in their soul.
If you want a
great marriage, you have to think big for it too! But marriage needs
more than just being a big thinker. Marriage needs two big thinkers who
are willing to sacrifice for each other. Only those who apply the power
of God into their life can do that.
We all have the
power to accept Godís truth for our marriage and yet, most people
never realize the spiritual potential within them. We become big
thinkers and we become the very best we can be when we have accepted the
fruit of the Spirit into our life. It is really that simple. There is no
magic involved.The fruits of the spirit are the abundance of life.
But the fruit
of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
