The Art of Expansive Thinking— The Key to Being a Badass in the 3-D Material World

Expansive thoughts are the root of a materially expansive life. 💭

Expansive thinking is the ability to imagine beyond the limits of what you currently know or believe to be possible. It is the practice of opening your mind to new ideas, perspectives, and possibilities. When you engage in expansive thinking, you tap into your creative energy and give yourself permission to dream big, even if those dreams seem impossible at first. 🤔💡

As children, we could imagine, literally, anything. Over time, authority figures, society, our knowledge of “scientific facts,” and more clouded our imagination the way grime builds up on a windshield. Logical thinking is a useful skill, but generating Badass goals requires expansive, LIMITLESS thinking. 🧒💭


The hardest part of thinking BIG is getting out of your own way. Daily meditation practice trains the mind to observe thoughts without judging them, including judgmental thoughts! Hehehe!

Your job as you start thinking BIG and expanding your thoughts is to heal any resistance that you encounter when brainstorming about the life you want for yourself. Here are some practical tips to practice thinking BIG about your goals:


  • Create and consume visual art. 🎨🖼️
  • Go for a walk, run, or bike-ride in nature. (Leave the headphones at home!) 🌳🏃‍♂️🚴‍♂️
  • Listen to instrumental music and see where your mind takes you. 🎶
  • Visit a place you’ve never been, even if it’s just around the corner. 🗺️🧭🌎
  • Try anything new that’s outside of your comfort zone. ⛺⚠️

Honor your ideas by showing up BIG for your goals, meaning, you take practical, rational actions to make them real. This might mean breaking your goals down into smaller, achievable steps, seeking out support and resources, or simply committing to showing up consistently for yourself and your dreams. 👣🛣️

Remember, thinking BIG isn’t just about dreaming up impossible scenarios – it’s about recognizing your own potential and giving yourself permission to pursue the life you truly desire. With practice and intentionality, you can cultivate the skill of expansive thinking and transform your life in ways you never thought possible. ✨
