I came across Michael Port’s book while I was on Amazon purchasing his previous boo, Book Yourself Solid: The Fastest, Easiest, and Most Reliable System for Getting More Clients Than You Can Handle Even if You Hate Marketing and Selling
, for a book club that I had joined on the bizchicksblogs.com When I was browsing the virtual shelf I saw the title: The Think Big Manifesto: Think You Can’t Change Your Life (and the World)? Think Again, and I thought it sounded intriguing so I grabbed that as well. Both titles are on my Kindle app on my iPhone, but I will say that I am giving this one my attention more so than, Book Yourself Solid, for the moment.

I am so inspired by this book. My blog readers know how much I love books, but I love this book because it is all about encouraging people to empower themselves to think bigger and change the world. Port is speaking to those who have been playing small in their lives and trying to just get through the day. He wants people to wake up to the possibilities and the potential that each of us holds to do big, amazing things.

Along with the book Port has started a social networking site, thinkbigrevolution.com, where other fans of the book can congregate and share energy, ideas, inspiration and encouragement.

We live in a world that is so full of disappointment, tragedy and pain, but each of us has the power that God gave us to rise above our present circumstances and aspire to something greater. One of my favorite quotes from the book is this one: “Inspiring others to think big is perhaps the single most important act of any one individual thinking big.” So, if you decide to think big, just by your actions you will influence and inspire those around you to think a little bigger themselves.

It’s like my favorite Margaret Mead quote: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever does”

So, if you’re someone with a vision to change the world and impact the lives of others in a positive way, I recommend that you pick up this book, read it, and start a revolution of your own.
