Special relativity defines time as the interval between events.
A profound definition it is. But after days of seeking within myself and inspiration from a number of sources, I came up with the definition that time is the single encompassing constant of the universe which connects all that is, was and all that will ever be. For it is time alone that connects the various galaxies(for if you compress time, distance is nothing). It is time alone that connects nothingness to something. It alone CONNECTS OUR VERY CONCEPTION TO OUR DEATH. It is this same time that connects our goals/ideas to their successful realities.
I can barely scratch the surface of the concept of time even in deep meditation but the point of this post is to examine it as a catalyst to creating a priority list in our limited lifetime. The thought in itself that there is a point on this earth that we will no longer BE should suffice as enough motivation to do all that we TRULY want to do and BE all that we TRULY want to be.
Before writing this article I searched deep for something worthwhile. I had the topic for a long time and ruminated on it for a while. Then, I found ample inspiration from the book of Ecclesiastes written by King Solomon(a recommended read).
For the true reason for this post is for the establishment of the right mindset to propel us ever forward.
I wrote in the second paragraph that time connects our BIRTH TO OUR DEATH but what I want us to dwell on is the INTERVAL THEREIN and what we do with it.
The realization and constant state of mind that to all of life there is an end, indeed helps to KEEP FIRST THINGS FIRST. This reminder also ought to be the fuel required to propel you further towards that life dream you've always wanted to achieve.
An important realization is that time in itself CANNOT be controlled by man BUT WE HAVE ABSOLUTE CONTROL OVER WHAT WE DO WITH IT. We must dare to FastTrack our thoughts to when we are at death's door and ask ourselves the difficult question of whether or not we are fulfilled with our usage of time. A huge regret will be to look back from such a time and realize that you didn’t do the things you really wanted to or you didn’t believe enough in yourself to do them or worse still, you didn’t set aside time for them. This isn't solely about monetary achievements but of all round fulfilment- for instance, travelling the world, helping the poor, taking risks, loving truly, being adventurous or being the best you could truly be. In a book by Kenneth Copeland, laws of prosperity he defined prosperity as threefold; physical, spiritual and mental. This is what I mean by all round fulfilment.
It is time to look deep within yourself. Ask yourself the difficult question constantly- if my life were to end at the dusk of day will I be happy and satisfied with all I have done ?
The UNCERTAINTY OF TOMORROW, OF EVEN THE NEXT SECOND should be enough fuel to propel us daily to achieve our greatest life's desires.
We truly have only one life to live, live it to the fullest in the right sense of it.
Live. Love. Laugh. Achieve. Prosper.

Oscar Wilde once wrote and I quote “we are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars”. A strong statement letting us understand we have the capacity to imagine great feats of achievements. All that is left is making our imaginations a reality and making it as great as it can possibly be.
Thinking big is basically the act of planning, imagining, and thinking boundlessly and without limitations(a personal definition).
Before I delve right into the article, it is paramount that you set your mind loose and let it wander….let it wander to the magnificence of your very existence, to the inexplicability of how one plants an apple seed and it grows into an Apple tree which then brings forth fruits that bring forth even more seeds(and many more of nature’s mysteries). Take a minute off this post, close your eyes and let your great mind wander(and wonder too).
NOW that your mind has escaped into a higher realm I need not tell you to think outside the box because there really is NO BOX.
At this point you possess the right state of mind to scale your ideas and think bigger than you did yesterday…and even bigger as the days go by.
Here are 6 basic steps to thinking big.

1. Let the right thoughts fill your mind: similar to the exercise in the third paragraph above, fill your mind with positive stimulating thoughts that place your mind in an elevated state. Shut out all negative thoughts and emotions for they are indeed limiting. Truth is, we are somewhat imbibed into whatever we constantly think about. Napoleon Hill said, “The mind is a CREATURE OF HABIT, it thrives upon the dominating thoughts FED IT.” A profound statement I'm sure we can all relate to.

2. Set out time (as often as needed) to let your mind SOAR THE CLOUDS OF INFINITE POSSIBILITIES. You will need a preferred time and place where you will be far from distractions or at least somewhere you can concentrate, a place where your heart, mind and total being is in constant harmony. I for instance, love the dark, quiet early mornings that make me feel I'm the only soul on earth.

3. Bring your self to a meditative state: once you've found harmony with your external environment it is time to do the same with your inner being. The more you meditate on something, the more you’re influenced by it; then your mind can connect the dots between possible and “seemingly impossible”.

4. Find motivation: This is extremely key. Motivation is the fuel of the mind. By all means seek yours and find it. Some may find it in achievements of top individuals trailblazing the field they seek to do exploits, in books, in movies, even in emotions (emotions both good and bad, when converted through the right means, are invaluable motivators). By all means find yours. You could also be motivated by multiple sources. Indeed, the more the merrier.

5. Run your ideas by a mentor you trust, one you believe in, one that will multiply them and not divide them, one that will add and not subtract from them. One that will help expand your mind and not shrink it’s capacity.

6. Strive for perfection/constantly break barriers. Constantly beat your own records. Be in competition with yourself to be better than you were yesterday.

It is not sufficient to think big. To complete the process, you must also think of the plans to achieve this feat WITHOUT SCALING BACK DOWN.
You must think enough about it till you see it in your dreams. At this point, the things you don't even know you see, your mind captures them and stores them in the IDEA ARCHIVE to be brought forth to your conscious mind on request when you meditate.
After successfully planning how to achieve your big thoughts, you may ask how to begin to execute them. I'd say, firstly: read my last post(with a grin). Secondly and more seriously: CHANCE FAVOURS THE PREPARED MIND. Once you're prepared and equipped with the accurate details required, when chance, opportunities arise, you can grasp them with wide open arms (smiles).

This is my first blog post and I want to start by welcoming you to this page. You are probably here because you seek something, you seek the drive to make sure you forge ahead and succeed; you seek the drive that’ll take you to the next level. I want to let you know that if you truly seek, here, between these words you shall find that push you need to start that journey. The time has finally come for you to TAKE ACTION to SUCCEED.
To keep it simple I want to let you know that every enterprise, endeavor, conglomerate or individual that succeeds started its/his/her journey as a mere idea. To be honest having the idea is the easy part…everyone has ideas. But the transmutation of these ideas into reality is the beginning of the struggle. Between the transmutations of ideas to successful realities, there are many attributes involved and I tell you, ALL who have succeeded have used ALL of these attributes or rules if you may. These rules are indeed the most rudimentary tools that are ever effective when turning ideas into something of a reality. Now, the truth is usually hiding in plain sight but the reality is that IT IS NOT WHAT WE LOOK AT THAT MATTERS, IT IS WHAT WE SEE. People may look at an artwork and have different interpretations of what the artist has in mind or when people look at you they may see just you but when YOU look in the mirror, you must see a STAR. So also when normal unambitious people see these rules which are in this article, they may see it as the usual rant but when a true seeker of success see these, they must see the GOLDEN PATHWAY to success. So keep your eyes sharp and your mind tuned as to see how you can input these rules in order to transmute that great idea in your mind to a worthwhile reality.
1. FEED THAT IDEA DAILY – Now, when I say feed, I mean feed it. Feed it every single second you can daily. Feed it with CONSTANT RUMINATION and CONSTANT MEDITATION and feed it by STRATEGIC PLANNING. And please by all means during this period avoid all things and people that will discourage you and your idea or goal otherwise such an idea is literally aborted for it will die before being born. It is paramount that you believe in your idea and have absolute faith in it otherwise you will be blown in any direction the wind does and so will the goal or idea till it is lost. Make sure your idea gets better and bigger by the day. Another major part of feeding your idea, which is the most important, is that YOU MUST PUT PEN TO PAPER. I cannot overemphasize this. Create a file, or a book dedicated solely to that idea [name the file or book thusly], always keep it close to you at all times, by your bed, even in the toilet [trust me inspiration is no respecter of location] and write down the results of your constant rumination and meditation.
2. ACTION! After a good deal of grooming your idea [please do this diligently but smartly without using a lifetime to plan] it is time to take action! Personally, I believe this is the major reason why certain people that have had great ideas for years are still mediocre today. There is a saying which goes thus; tell the world what you intend to do, but first SHOW THEM! Never, ever, ever……ever wait for the time to be right or for situations to be most favorable, never! Trust me the best time is now! Situations may never be more favorable as far as life is concerned for we know not the future. Not to undermine planning at all by all means plan WELL but do take action earnestly, especially when you have the fresh zeal and inspiration, pulsing in your veins, that’s the time you have the most fuel to act. They say entrepreneurs are those that jump off a cliff and create a parachute while they fall. This is because they are calculated risk and action takers. You must get off those two butt cheeks of yours and move! Taking action commits you powerfully to your goal. Take that first step and the other steps will indefinitely follow. This is not limited to business people or entrepreneurs at all. Students that seek the top spot in class MUST PLAN AND TAKE ACTION, career men and woman that seek promotions must PLAN AND ACT, the list goes on. In all spheres of life this is vital and applicable.
3. DON’T STOP! PERSEVERE, PERSIST; Now that you have started, keep going no matter the odds. This is probably the hardest part-staying true to the cause. Now, Paul in his first epistle to the Corinthians said “know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run that ye may obtain”. In the general sense, a lot of people are running but only those that persist and persevere can receive the prize of success. We start a lot of things but do we finish them? This is one thing that distinguishes successful people from others. Do you roll over on your back, show your belly and give up every time tribulations arise? To succeed one must persevere. We have heard a thousand times how Thomas Edison [who had only about three months of formal schooling] failed 10,000 times before he was able to create the light bulb that we all celebrate till date but what do we take out of it? His success only happened because of his FAITH IN HIS GOAL and his DOGGED PERSEVERANCE AND PERSISTENCE. You must stay true to your goal/idea! QUITTERS NEVER WIN AND WINNERS NEVER QUIT!
4. DILIGENCE; THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO TRUE SUCCESS WITHOUT HARD WORK(Please, work hard but also work smart). For every endeavor/person to be OUTstanding you must be willing to OUTwork the regular workers in the same field. To be EXTRAordinary, you must work EXTRA than the ordinary. When you hear big achievers like Albert Einstein, Nichola Tesla, Leonardo Davinci say they only slept say three or four hours a day it becomes evident that they were work hungry and were absolutely willing to put in the EXTRA HARD WORK required attaining the incredible fits of achievements they did. They were not only willing; they actually DID put in the extra work! They had diligence and discipline as part of their DNA; they had hard work flowing in their veins. Till date all great achievers are DILIGENT WORK MONGERS. Michael Phelps for instance, the greatest Olympic swimmer to date swims approximately 80 kilometers daily! It is not farfetched that he is the most decorated Olympian of all time with 28 medals and also holds the all-time record for most Olympic gold medals with a whopping 23 gold medals and he is only 32 years old as at the date of this post. He is also worth $55 million [#22 billion NGN]. Such can only be achieved by true diligence. Another great example is the richest man in Africa doubling as the richest black man in the world- Aliko Dangote. He works and average 18 hours a day and sleeps only about 3 or 4 hours daily and hasn’t taken a vacation in 14 years. This is a man worth $12.2billion and can take a vacation to anywhere in the galaxy literally but diligence keeps him working daily. I need not say more as to how invaluable diligence and hard work is to success. To conclude, I must say that it is certain that if you follow these rules, success is imminent. As is commonly said, WISDOM IS NOT IN WHAT YOU KNOW, ITS IN WHAT YOU DO WITH WHAT YOU KNOW. At this point the world is yours to conquer. Good luck. Do share comments below.
