This month’s newsletter topic:

Five Reasons Why Playing Big is Better

Sometimes in life we decide to play it small. Maybe we don’t want to offend anyone, take a risk, fail, or god forbid, look dumb. So we decide to ignore the yearning in our heart that says, “Do It!”—and take the seemingly easier, softer way. Here’s five reasons why playing big is better.

1. Avoid Soul Sucking

Hear that sucking sound–kind of like a Slurpee going through a vacuum? That’s your soul being sucked away a little bit at a time. Your soul (aka your Essential Self) knows what you truly want and does not care what other people think about it. People play it small to avoid disappointment yet failure to honor those things you truly want results in far deeper disappointment.

2. Be Happier

Your Essential Self LOVES it when you go for it. Taking risks and putting yourself out there is the fast track to happiness. Things may not always work out the way you wanted (see #3) but much more possibility will be revealed along the way. And, it will be a hell of a fun journey. Like they say, “If you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always got.”

3. Fall on your face, it’s good for you

Ok, while figuratively falling on your face can be good, actually falling on your face, not-so-good. There are all kinds of trite expressions out there about failure, but think about it, the only sure way to fail is to not try. Guaranteed failure there. Trying something new and not having it work out as expected is far from failure—it is more information than you had before. It’s like the “warmer/colder” game you played as a kid, the worst thing you can do in that game is not move because then you get no information about whether you’re warmer or colder. When you move you create possibility, you create the opportunity for something really cool to happen.

4. Be More Interesting

People who are out there taking risks are vastly more interesting. Either because they say what they really think and are thus scintillating conversationalists, or because they have fabulous stories to tell about their adventures. Maybe if you ask nicely they’ll even tell you the hilarious story of the time they fell on their face.

5. Tell Your Truth

Step up and say your truth. Sometimes the truth is as simple as saying, “I really don’t care for garlic,” when a friend asks you to go to the garlic festival. Sometimes it’s a much bigger deal like, “I don’t want to be in this relationship anymore.” Either way, not saying your truth has consequences—for you. It could be as small as a case of indigestion or as big as spending years depressed in a relationship you no longer want. It’s bad for you and it’s bad for the other you supposedly don’t want to offend. Besides, it’s not your business how the other person reacts.

When faced with the dilemma of playing small or playing big—play big. You’ll be glad you did.
