Ep #77: Are You Playing Small?

playing small

I’m serving you some tough love on the podcast today, friends. This topic is a huge one in getting to your goals – if you have any – and if you don’t, that’s fine too. I’ll be addressing the difference between playing small and feeling content where you are right now.

All of us tend to want to play small or unconsciously hold ourselves back when we think about up-leveling any area of our life. Whether it’s a business goal or a personal goal, there are a multitude of stories we tell ourselves to feel secure and safe where we’re at. Today, I’m breaking down some of the most common stories I’ve seen in other people, as well as stories I’ve told myself, to help you question if you are truly happy where you are or whether you need to break out of your shell.

If you’re wishing for fame, fortune, recognition, or anything else for your life but you’re not willing to do what it takes to get there, that’s the worst place you could possibly be. I’m showing you today that you can be absolutely 100% happy where you are, or the alternative is to do something about it and it’s going to be so worth it in the long-run.
