THINK BIG: A FORMULA FOR SUCCESS
Think Big is more than a slogan. It’s a formula, which stands for Talent, Honesty, Insight, Nice, Knowledge, Books, In-depth Learning, and God.
My focus on these words helped me to overcome the challenges of my youth and achieve success – and they can help us build an America of unlimited potential for all our citizens.
WE MUST DEMAND MORE OF OUR LEADERS
To reach our potential, we need leaders in Washington, D.C. who understand which policies can truly help us, and which can set us back.
We need leaders who are willing to reach beyond soundbites, groupthink, and gridlock.
We need leaders who will stand for principle, but who can also listen, put aside their own ambition, and solve problems.
At Think Big America PAC, we plan to find these leaders, and help ensure they have the resources to win.
“Thinking Big means opening our horizons, reaching for new possibilities in our lives, being open to whatever God has in store for us on the road ahead. Thinking Big is another way of restating one of my mother’s favorite sayings: “You can do anything they can do — only you must try to do it better!” That’s Thinking Big.”
