STOP PLAYING SMALL!

May 18, 2017
Failure is the pits! It’s the absolute worst – to try and reach for something and fall short is really disappointing. We can feel taken from, lose our self belief and become disillusioned with ourselves and our journey. What often results from this is we shrink, we begin to go within and we start to play small.
When we experience loss and disappointment it’s very natural for us to go within and protect ourselves, it makes sense, we want to disconnect a little and reduce any further risk of being taken from. But what is the real cost of this. We often think of life in two ways, we either take risks or we experience regret…ask yourself which would you prefer and what would/do you find easier to live with?
We think that living with risk feels better than regret as regret often links us to the past where we no longer hold any capacity or control to make change. The truth is that the moment right now is the only moment you have control over and if you play small in this moment it has consequences. It becomes really important then to continue to reach for possibilities. Even in the face of loss, frustration and disappointments there are options and opportunities around us. However we miss them if we do not correctly align our mindsets to play big.
To play big is to see clearly, to look at life through a lens of hope and a willingness to take risks and try new things. We have a motto – go big or go home, this reminds us to play big, live big and love big!
In every area of your life – career, family, health, friendship and even with your money you can make the decision to play big big instead of shooting small. This doesn’t mean you become irresponsible with your decisions and start taking risks all over the place. What it does mean is that you keep your intentions in check to really step into every aspect of yourself and your life. This is about choosing to overcome any fear or limitations and really show up for yourself with confidence.
In every moment we get to CHOOSE how we feel and this determines how we play in the world. What positive and self affirming intentions can you hold for yourself that would change how you play in your life. Play big instead of small by knowing in every part of you that –
  • You are worthy of unconditional love and respect
  • You are safe, you are exactly where you are meant to be in every moment
  • You can choose in every moment to be hopeful and optimistic
  • You have loving relationships that you are worthy and that you nourish
  • You can balance giving and receiving so that every aspect of your life is flowing in a balanced way
  • Your happiness and health are the result of your choices – empower yourself to create wonderful choices for yourself
  • You are enough, you always have been and always will and now is the time to play big in your life
We all can create a better and bigger life for ourselves. This week we challenge you to repeat the 7 statements above every morning and every evening as the first step to living bigger in your life!
