Many people play small because they don’t believe they have the resources to play a bigger game.
The common thoughts that hold us back:
1) “I’m doing as much as I can. I can’t possibly do anymore than I am right now”,
2) “I don’t have the time”,
3) “I don’t have the money”
We think that playing a bigger game means life will become more stressful, busier, more difficult.
Here’s the paradox. It doesn’t.
The bigger your game, the easier life gets.
I just took an inventory of all the huge things happening simultaneously in my life right now and discovered that I have far more going on than I ever had in prior years and yet my life today is far less stressful and hectic.
What’s the difference?
All the things I’ve got going on right now are things I am doing because I LOVE to do them.
You see, playing a bigger game is not about making more money, though more money (more easily than ever) may be a natural result and every path , it’s about living from your purpose every day.
It’s not only possible, but when you allow yourself to dive into that every single day and examine every decision you make and every fork in your road from that perspective, you will be rewarded with everything you’ve ever wanted. All the peace, contentment, and joy you’ve longed for, but even better the absence of anxiety, worry, fear and doubt you’ve prayed about.
The truth is that playing a bigger game will make your life flow with ease and grace. And when it does, any question as to whether you are playing too small or the wrong way will disappear.
