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.

Dream. Believe. Achieve.

Ah yes, do your thing anyway. Yup, I agree.
Dreams are from the ether, so we need to respect them. They are divine. We cannot let them go. Abe hicks are right when they say thins.
Oh God, the “what if” question got me in depression and it took years to get out of it. I thought my life would be so much better had I followed one path and not the other, when the best memories of my life were from the very path taken. When my husband mentioned the other night that I may need to do a particular thing, that was an indicator to me that it is still not too late. My parents said once that it was, but you know, they are of a different era. This is the new generation.
It is so sickening when others judge and criticize you for what you are doing. I think it mostly shows their insecurities, bitterness and smallness rather than your own. That is why I steer clear of them. My vibe is not so high to hang with such people just yet, but I really do feel sorry for them. Feeling sorry is a bad feeling!
“Dreams are from the ether…” love it! 🙂
It’s hard to let go of what if. But what’s done is done, and the best thing to do know is decide what you’re going to do now, from where you are and with what you have. It’s never too late. Susan Boyle didn’t start her professional career until she was almost 50 years old… and she’s a multi-platinum selling recording artist now. No one could have guessed how all of that would unfold for her. If you haven’t read her auto-biography, I highly recommend checking it out.
One of my favourite quotes: “Never let someone who gave up on their dreams talk you out of going after yours.”
Another thing I remembered is that in the grand scheme of thing, sometimes it is good that something did or did not happen when it did, so we should not have any regrets about anything. I hear people being thankful that something did not happen, even if they do regret it, but later find out that things could have been worse, the lover would have been bad, the friendship would have severed, etc. So, we should always be thankful and know that the best is yet to come and stop looking back but forward and raise our vibration so that the memories we do not wish to dwell on do not come to mind.
Exactly. Stop obsessing about the path not taken — all it does is mess with your vibration. The best really is yet to come, so believe in the possibility of everything before you and let that be where your energy and thoughts are focused.
