The definitive aim of Big Thinkers in this economy that sets them apart from others is their continuous development of character and leadership. One of the most significant goals you could hope to accomplish in the course of your business and life is to become an exceptional Big Thinker in every sense of the word. Your purpose should be to develop the kind of big thinking personality and character that earns you the respect, esteem, and affection of the important people in your inner circle and in the world.

It simply comes down to a matter of practice. If you wish to learn the virtue of bigger thinking, simply practice the virtue of bigger thinking in every situation in your business where that virtue of big thinking is required. In other words, if you wish to develop the quality of bigger thinking, act like, and make decisions like a bigger thinker even when you feel afraid.
For instance, there was a time in my business several years ago where I had to redefine myself and rediscover what success meant to me. And when I did discover what success meant to me on my terms, I have never looked back.

Today it is challenging for some entrepreneurs to rise to a position of leadership in any company. The competition for bigger thinking and leadership is more intense than ever before. Due to things like social media, with Facebook and Twitter for instance, it has become much more of an equalizer in that it give more entrepreneurs opportunities that are unimaginable. Only the entrepreneurs who are capable to acquire bigger thinking and leadership positions and then to hang on to those positions rise to the top in their profession.

In a way, bigger thinking and leadership is “situational.” What is essential for success in bigger thinking and leadership positions is determined by several things; including the people to be led, the objectives to be accomplished, the competition for resources, the social, cultural, political, and economic situation just to name a few. Shifting any of these will change the qualities of bigger thinking and leadership essential for bigger success.

So as a bigger thinker are you ready for the “unthinkable or the unexpected?” Is it only when you come across a stumbling block, obstacle, a difficulty, or the unthinkable, that you demonstrate the kind of entrepreneur you really are in your business? It is not what you say, wish, hope, or intend that reveals your bigger thinking. It is only your actions, and especially your actions in the face of tough times and with possible stumbling blocks.

Once you have developed a clear vision for your ideal future bigger and better thinking and make up your mind to develop unshakable bigger and better thinking by doing the things you fear, you must develop the habit of accepting full responsibility for yourself and for every aspect of your business.

Possibly the most important quality of bigger thinking as well leadership in this economy is the habit of integrity! You develop integrity and become a completely trustworthy entrepreneur by practicing telling the truth to yourself and others in every situation. When you are coming from this kind of intention, and truly believe it, it will massively improve your thinking, connection, leadership and bottom line. You must repeatedly make clear what you stand for and what you will not stand for whether it is in your blogging, ezine, interviews, programs or products. Once you have decided that you are going to build your business around your top values, you 100% refuse to settle for anything less.

Where do you need to step it up in your bigger thinking and leadership in your business? Do you need to come out of hiding and step into all of your gifts and talents? Take a look around you. Those that do shine in any economy! If you are unsure of doing this on your own get an accountability partner, or mentor so that you can speed up the process.
