It amounts to opening up one's mind. Limit yourself and see a smaller potential, don't have boundaries and see a bigger potential.

I've often heard from weight lifters that pushing past plateaus is mostly mental. The same applies in business. The odds are that you won't achieve phenomenal success unless you think big. You may still be successful, but never maximize your potential.

Your post reminded me of the phrase "think outside of the box" for some reason. This is priceless when it comes to running any type of business.

In business, you have to think core focus. I've seen many businesses go under because they took on too much debt load trying to expand or be everything to everybody. Thinking out of the box is important, measured against the framework of your abilities. I read recently that using the term, "thinking outside of the box" was very bad to put on your resumes - because it's so commonly misused. What works very well for us are networking alliances - trading services and leads.

Interesting how something so simple, can be taken out of the box. With the economy how it is, many businesses have reeled in their outside the box thinkers. In sales it makes it difficult because at one time when you could throw a little bit of spice in it, your now stuck playing the game within the company policies.

That's exactly why I work for myself. I want to spice up life a bit here and there. Therefore, my thinking could be too extreme for a big corp.

Reminds me of a networking firm I worked for years ago where the owner posted company policy for EVERYTHING - plastered them on every wall in the building. There were so many, everyone just generally ignored them. It was ridiculous. An example - a tech left his jacket at a client's site. The client mailed it back to our office. We had a company policy that we had to create a work order to receive it into Shipping & Receiving. No room to think out of the box there!!

Some large corporations are successful though because they have personnel on staff that they encourage to think out of the box.
