When I was in university, working on my first degree, my roommate was a sports fan who used to say go big or go home whenever we’d go out to play any kind of game. I’m not much of a sports fan myself, but I thought it was a good phrase and it’s stuck with me ever since. In today’s podcast episode I’m talking about this concept and what it really means to me. Because I firmly believe that each and every one of us has the power to change the world and make it better. But we can’t do that by playing small and dimming our light. If we want to make the world a better place, then we have to be the change that we want to see; we have to go big, or we really might as well go home.
I’ve said it many times on this site, but it bears repeating again: each one of us has a unique gift, a unique perspective, and a unique energy that we alone can bring forth into the world. It’s always there, but if we want to use that wonderful potential to its fullest, we have to let ourselves shine as brightly as we possibly can. We cannot keep shrinking back or hiding our light because we are afraid to use it, or because we are afraid of what other people might think, say or do. We cannot effect change unless we put ourselves and our dreams out there in front of the world, holding nothing back and giving everything we’ve got. We’ve got to go big or go home if we want to create the life and the world that we most want see.
There is no benefit to holding the best of you back, not for you and not for anyone else, either. The best thing you can do for the world and for the people you care most about is to let yourself shine, because in so doing, you will inspire everyone around you to do the same. Imagine the world we could create if everyone shone their light, followed their hearts and became the change.
