Have you ever had the desire to achieve something remarkable ?
Would you like to be better or do something absolutely awesome ?
Have you ever thought about having much more than you have right now ?
If not, it’s time for you to play a bigger game. Whether you are an individual or part of a large organization, play a bigger game to smash all your goals.
Playing a bigger game is all about seizing the opportunity to achieve more, be more, do more and have more than you ever thought was possible. Lets do a quick exercise, it won’t take long and will increase your chances of success tenfold. So grab a pen and a pad and get set to make some quick notes. A few minutes of preparation will make a world of difference to your results, and results are what matters.
Achieving more is about success. It’s about what you would like to be a winner at. Success means different things to different people. You know what success means to you at this stage of your life. Take a minute to jot down some notes about what achieving more, or success, means to you.
Being more is about how we show up in these roles. Write down the roles that are important to you and why you would like to be more in that role. Perhaps you don’t spend as much time with your kids as you should or maybe you are disconnected from your friends. Describe what needs to change.
Doing more is about the experiences you want to have and the things you want to do. Make a list of the things you would really like to do in the next 12 months. It could be to go to Paris, learn Spanish, run the New York marathon or give up smoking. You get the idea. Quickly write down your bucket list for the next 12 months.
Having more is about ownership, or what belongs to us. What are the things you would like to have in your life in the next 12 months. Ownership is not just about material things, though. We also ‘own’ our reputation. What sort of reputation would you like to have ? What would you like to be remembered for?
So that’s it. If you have completed that quick exercise you are ready to play a bigger game and have massively increased your chances of success. In fact, if you really did complete the exercise give yourself a pat on the back, as you are already playing a bigger game, because I can assure you that most people didn’t do it. If you didn’t do , go back and do it now. It will be worth it.
