of the secrets to wealth is to THINK BIG! The fact is that very
few people “think” big
and even fewer “play” big. So, why don’t people want
to “play big”? Usually, it’s because they believe
they can’t handle “big” or they don’t want to handle

One of the biggest differences between rich people and poor people
is that highly successful people are bigger than their problems

breathing, you will always have situations that aren’t perfect.
Therefore, the size of the problem is never the
always the size of you!
The secret then is to grow yourself as a person, to be bigger
than your problems so that they become insignificant and appear
to disappear. Not because the problems are not there, but because
you handle them so easily.
