Playing Small

Playing small feels easy.

Playing small feels safe.

Playing small is comfortable and allows for tiny, comfortable risks.

I know that the terms “living big” or “playing big” have always been the ones that make me cringe a little. It feels like too much. Playing big makes me fearful. Am I brave enough to play bigger? Can I allow for the fear? Will I have the courage to keep stepping foward?

Or do I accept what I know about myself and play safer? Keep things smaller. More controlled. Easier.

I know what all of the self help and leadership books tell me to do. I know what the memes on social media would encourage.

But…

how will I let my life play out?
