Everybody reads one book in their life that truly inspires them. The book "The Magic of Thinking Big" written by David Schwartz has achieved the same for me. This book inspired me to think big, be optimistic, and focus on the mindset to achieve any goal in life. It is filled with ideas and methods that can be applied at home or work for improving success, happiness, and satisfaction.

In this book, it is said that we are recognized as the product of thinking around us, and much of this thinking that shapes our lives is little, not big. How we think determines how we are going to act and how others are going to react to us. The thinking that guides us is much more important than how much intelligence or formal education we may have.  We always hear that thinking is power, but thinking is only potential power; it is powerful when it is used. But what describes power means a successful person. The test of a successful person is not when he eliminates all the problems before arising but when he meets and works out his difficulties when they arise. Also, the book says that the thinking of the most successful person and the person who talks more is rarely the same. The successful person practices generosity in his conversation and encourages the other person around them to talk about their ideas, views, and their problems more than the others.

Most conspicuously, it is easy to lose positive thinking when surrounded by all this negativity in the world, but viewing the situations of life optimistically can result in a change of perspective which is simple and straightforward. Dr. Schwartz says that success calls for those people who are ready to increase their life's efficiency, meaning, to get more output at a lower cost with less effort by thinking big. He believes the primary goal in our lives should be to enjoy it and to treat everyone with dignity. That is the ultimate form of thinking big.

In conclusion, I would say that Dr. Schwartz has presented a thoughtfully designed program for getting the most out of your life, job, marriage, and your community. He has proven that you do not need to be intellectual or talented to attain great success and satisfaction, but you do need to learn and understand the habit of thinking and believing in ways that will get you there.
