Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered what separates people who think bigger from people who set their bars low? What makes one person accept low standards and another person constantly raise them?

Why does one person strive to build an international organization affecting the lives of millions of people while another person is content working her entire life as a clerk? (Not that there's anything wrong with being a clerk!)

Why is one person challenging herself to run marathons, train her body, and get fitter while another is happy living a sedentary, unhealthy lifestyle?

What drives a person who's optimizing every single aspect of her life, and what causes another person to maintain the status quo?

You can say, "Well, the answer is simple enough - one person is ambitious while the other one is not." But what exactly causes it? How do you become more ambitious and think bigger? Is it something you're born with and can't change, or is it something over which you have control?

I found this topic so fascinating, I decided to find out the answer for myself and write a book about it. This book is the result of my research about people who think big and the science of being more ambitious.

Dreaming Bigger? How?

This book helps readers who have had problems in dreaming big. It helps the reader understand how people dream big and how to help people awaken their imagination in dreaming more than the small things in life.

Great doable strategies to implement a better way of living.

Short, sharp and shiny

One of the best single hours I've spent listening to a book. So many small nuggets to take away. Will have to listen to it again. And can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series.

refreshing ideas

It tells basics of motivation in a simple way. story is enjoying to listen. you may not hear the ideas for the first time but it is good to hear from a different mouth. In addition to these, it is a great way to spend time in traffic jam.

Life Changing

I am a member of Toastmasters International. I read books that habe have a purpose and,add value to my personal and professional growth. It had a profound impact on my view of several things, one being playing to win rather than playing to lose. Thank you for this extraordinary insight to thinking bigger.

Short but good book

The book is easy to digest and has lots of great info in it. It will either be a refresher book on the subject matter or it will wet your appetite for more. Still a good book. I'm interested in other books by Mr. Meadows.
