Are You Playing Big?
After hearing a lot of people talk about “playing big,” I decided that this is just another – more conventional – term for manifesting. I recently learned about a speaker with six rules to Playing Big.
Rule #1: There is no secret to playing big.
I agree. There is no secret to manifesting, it is about doing.
Rule #2: Have an inspirational goal and stake your claim.
This is brilliant. Step 1 of manifesting is to know exactly what you want. Staking your claim in an inspirational goal is saying to the world, “this is what I want, and I’m going to get it.”
Rule #3: Have a big enough goal that it involves others.
I am not sure if I have thought about it in these terms before. But, what better way to get people on board with your plan than for it to be so big and beautiful that they are already included? And, for me, this goes hand in hand with Rule #4.
Rule #4: Share the goal for accountability.
Sharing is key to manifesting. If there is no one to ask you how it’s going, whom are you going to brag to when you get there?
Rule #5: Hire a coach.
Well, of course I like this one, I’m a coach!
Let’s look at the facts. Successful athletes have coaches. Successful business people have coaches. Even successful coaches have coaches. By hiring someone who has the knowledge and skills that you do not, you will reach your goal faster. Also, coaches keep you on track and accountable.
Rule #6: Do it all – with priority.
Translation: ACT AS IF you are already there. Make the reservations, live the reality, be the person you want to be.
So, no matter what you call it, playing big or manifesting, you can attain that “pie in the sky” dream. But first, you need to DEFINE THE DREAM, declare it as yours, and get those around you involved.
