What does “playing big” actually mean?

Does it mean to get more social media followers? To play more extreme sports? To make more money?

“Play big” is a term I hear thrown around a lot in the entrepreneurial world but it’s important to know that it’s not exclusive to people building businesses. “Playing big” in life means to play big as a human being regardless of what your career pursuits are.

Playing big means to become the most authentic version of yourself, live life through the lense of joy and feel purpose-driven. If you’re doing those three things, you’re playing big.

Unfortunately, the fear of rejection and failure is often what keeps people from living a purpose-driven life because typically, pursuing purpose means pursuing the possibility of failure. And failure feels bad. Rejection is icky.

In this video, I’m going to give you 3 tips for playing bigger in life, and yes, they involve rejection and fear. (get used to it, toots!)

1. Choose your leap

Leaps are things in life that take you one step closer to the goal or dream you are pursuing.

Want to become an artist? Sign up for a painting class.

Want to leave your corporate job and create your own job? Get a business coach.

Want to sell jewelry? Create an Etsy account.

Want to speak at conferences? Create a website with your offerings.

Whatever you want to create more of in your life will need a leap or two. Think about a few things you can do now to get yourself started.

2. Become rejection proof

Whenever you care about something, you risk getting hurt. It’s just truth. But if you are so fearful of the “hurt” part that you never take the risk, you’ll never know what it feels like to have true, purpose-driven joy. Trust me, the trade off is worth it.

Rejection is God’s protection, anyways, so it always happens for a reason.

3. Tell people about it

The universe makes things happen in incredible ways but more times than not, it happens through another person.

Someone remembers that you’re working on this goal, and when they catch wind of a new program or scholarship for it, they let you know about it.

Somebody has a friend of a friend who can hook you up with an editor for your new book.

Someone knows of a job opening in the city you’re hoping to move to.

Even if it’s just a simple Facebook status, tweet or Instagram story, let people know about what you’re working towards. If you start getting freaked out by the prospect of telling people, ask yourself: What’s the best that could happen?
