We simply must spend more time imagining Possibilities..."Think of things - not as they are but as they might be."

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Robert Collier wrote, "Think of things - not as they are but as they MIGHT be." ...'The SECRET Of The Ages', (1926)

If we follow Robert Collier's advice then we will get beyond our personal biases, especially our tendency to judge others harshly. And, we will create.

Robert Collier, 'The SECRET Of The Ages', (1926)

While leaders must set rules, they must also empower people to be innovative as they pursue goals.

Novelty in thinking and action have never been more essential.

Few companies have that sort of culture...so - most companies must adopt desire for change if they wish to survive and thrive.

Educate your brain: don't just stuff it full of facts and demand it work harder - mould it so it does a good job of thinking.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If you are thrilled with the way your mind and brain are serving you...terrific!

If you are not thrilled - take your mind to a better place...as one example, train your mind how to think more positively...another example, train your mind how to govern self-control.

If you think you are too busy then you are thinking wrong.

I favour abundance thinking over scarcity mindsets. 

If I decide I think "I'm too busy" then I have selected a scarcity mindset with respect to time, the most-precious commodity...or darned close to it.

So - I must not think "I'm too busy."

And - I must leave "I'm too busy" to the people who choose to embrace those scarcity mindsets. 

The optimist probably are just as wrong as the pessimists...but optimists have more fun.

Just don’t let optimism get outside the bounds of realism.

2 types of people succeed in business: (1) those who naturally 'get it' and (2) those who observe well & learn.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

There are only 2 types of people who experience meaningful success in business:

  1. Those few, the intuitive, who somehow naturally 'get it' and 'seek & solve' their way for as long as it takes to obtain success. 
  2. Those few who observe and attend to mentors [who are willing to help them], emulate heroes' best qualities and sooner or later, after much work, 'get it'. 

In business, no other types of people achieve meaningful success.
