Authors Can Think and Act Big!

Image result for thinking image

Authors, like most others, need to think big and more importantly, act big.  But we know that something always stops them from executing a big idea.  

Often, the big idea is too overwhelming for them to act on.  Plus there will be time constraints, fears, and other factors that limit them.  Suddenly, the big idea has dwindled down to a trivial afterthought.

Well that shit has to stop now!

I was skimming through Bud Carter’s book, Thinking Big: Quotes, Notes and Inspiration to Spark Business Success.  Here are some thoughts from other influential voices.  Perhaps they will motivate you to think and act big.
