So many millions of people in the world are playing small today. Denying their greatness. And no one is a worse offender than you. Unless it’s me.
This is my favorite week of the year, because I conduct my TRIBAL Event. It begins this morning, and it’s my own wake up call, that I can and must think even bigger.
I’ve done amazing things. Accomplished lots of stuff at very high levels. Am considered one of the most successful people in the world even, by a lot of standards. And I can tell you I’ve been thinking small. Holding myself back by denying the extraordinary greatness I can really do, have and become.
And I bet you could be thinking a lot bigger too...
The Miami Dolphins haven’t been able to find a franchise quarterback since Dan Marino retired almost 20 years ago. But there are 150 guys (and at least a few gals) walking around who could do the job magnificently. The problem is they’ve never picked up a football.
I would wager that there are at least 100 people alive today who could develop the cure for Leukemia. But they’re busy trying to take better pictures of food, or start the next social network. There are people taking community college courses who should be teaching Masters level ones. There are women serving as president’s assistants, who should really be the president themselves.
What is holding these people back is their self-doubt. Their denial they that are really capable of doing great things. They deny themselves the confidence they need. The confidence that could carry them to their greatness.
So what greatness you are denying yourself from achieving?
