I spent a VIP day with one of my clients today and instead of the usual meeting room we have (which is pretty roomy anyway), we instead had the beautiful hotel lounge all to ourselves. It's a REALLY big space for just 2 people but somehow we managed to fill it with our thoughts and our energy.
And it made me think. How much does the space around us (literal or metaphorical) restrict our thinking. And how big is your space?
I make a point of spending time with other people in rooms all over the world where we fill the space with our energy. That's why I attend events, masterminds, and conferences so I can share space that's filled with big energy as I feed off it, and I can see it working for other people too.
And I know for one that my environment makes a huge difference to my thinking. Anyone who has been to my office knows that while it's pretty spacious it's not the, er, how shall I put this... 'minimalist' of environments :) But I see I need to keep that in check as when I'm in a clear and big space I do think clearer. And when I'm in a plush environment (why I can't do VIP days at low star hotels!) I think plush.
It sounds simple and it is, but how often do you consciously change or upgrade your environment to match your plans? Do you work outside your usual space, do you go for a walk under a huge sky or by a vast ocean and think in a bigger way?
How big is your space?
Because you know that as big as you make it, you can always fill it so think big and act big. It will get you noticed!
