Did you know that the concept of, “Playing it small, is for losers?”
Why, because playing it small, is really code for “I’m afraid of success!”
Stop shaking your head and saying, “No, it isn’t.”
Yes, it is!
Consider this…you don’t see athletes training for the Olympics, saying, “Participating is enough for me. I don’t want to win the Gold Medal.” In fact it’s quite the opposite. They train for years to get there, to accomplish one thing…Win and Win Big. Why, because they aren’t waking up in the morning playing it small. They’re thinking and playing BIG every day, all day long.
So what’s my point?
The reason why you set low standards and play it small is so that you don’t have to be disappointed, “if things don’t work out.” Unfortunately, when YOU play it small YOU end up with teeny-weeny results.
I say: “If you aim at the curb you’re gonna land in the gutter.”
And if we’re honest, no one ever makes it to the top playing it small. Small thoughts are for small minds. Big thoughts are for hunormic minds!
So, START right now:
Here are 3-tips to go from small to BIG!
Quadruple your goals. (Yes, all of them).
Take 3 BIG Risks everyday (Weekends included).
Get out of the box, then CRUSH IT! (You know the one you have been building since grade school).
Bonus, throw away/donate anything that reminds you of playing it small. (A fresh start is your best start!)
My Final Thoughts
By now you may need a defibrillator to get back up and finish reading this blog. I get it. Just the thought of doing one let alone all of the things I’ve suggested makes you want to go somewhere and hide.
But, if you take a moment and really accept what I am suggesting you’ll find that it’s exciting! Think about how interesting each day will be for you now. You’re opening up a brand new world and “playing it small,” will soon become a distant memory.
