Everybody reads one book in their lives that truly inspires them. The book named "The magic of thinking big", written by David Schwartz has achieved the same. This book has inspired me to think big and be optimistic and focused on my mindset to achieve any goal in my life. It is filled with ideas and methods that can be applied at home or work giving real-life examples of improving success, happiness, and satisfaction to those who implemented this.

This book says that we are recognized as the products of thinking around us and much of this thinking is little, not big. The environment around us is trying to pull us down. The thinking that guides us that our intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence one may have. How we think determines how we are going to act and how others are going to react to us? We always hear that knowledge is power, but knowledge is only potential power, it is powerful when it is only used. The test of a successful person is not when he eliminates all the problems before arising, but when he meets and works out his difficulties when they arise. Also, the most successful person and the person who talks more are rarely the same. The successful person practices generosity in his conversation and encourages the other person to talk about their ideas, views, and their problems more. This is a truth that yet currently, common sense is not so common anymore and it is easy to lose positive thinking when surrounded by all this negativity in the world but viewing the situations of life optimistically can result in a change of perspective which is simple and straightforward. Success calls for those people who are ready to increase their efficiency meaning to get more output at a lower cost with less effort. Only the persisting nature mixing with experimentation guarantees success but still the primary goal to remind ourselves in this life is to enjoy it and to treat everyone with dignity which is an ultimate success.

In conclusion, thinking “Big” means that we should be creative, progressive, experimental, and receptive to new ideas which combined is a success.
