Making sense of LeSean McCoy signing; wondering how much Drew Brees is worth – Peter King – SI.com

Actually, it was. The problem with all of us sometimes is we convince ourselves of all the reasons we can’t do something before we even try. We think small, so that we might succeed at that small dream we set out for ourselves in order to avoid failure. Think of what you might accomplish if you directed all that compelling, forceful energy toward convincing yourself why you can do it. In a nutshell, thinking big means conjuring up a vision for yourself. It means taking time, being reflective, and daring to visualize what it would look like if you could wave a magic wand and be exactly where you wanted to be in five years, even if it seems a little unrealistic at the moment. Look, we live in the real world. I’m not suggesting you … dream big dreams and refuse any situation or opportunity in the meantime that doesn’t live up to that perfect ideal. What I am saying is: Think big for yourself. Dream big. But then, be ready to start small.

In fact, that is exactly how it works. You start small, and you work at the small thing like it is the big thing. That’s how you get the big thing.
