Sometimes you just know you are playing too small.
You feel it inside and you know that more is possible for you.
You might not know how to do it, but at least you recognize you’re not playing as big as you want to, or are capable of.
But it’s also possible you’re playing too small and you just don’t know it.
No matter how successful you already are, how big your business or impact already is or what you are already doing and accomplishing: you might still be playing smaller than you are capable of.
If you recognize one of these symptoms this might just be true for you:
Symptom #1: You sometimes feel irritated or bored with your business or your clients.
The things you do don’t really feel like a challenge (anymore). You know what to do and how to do it, and you do it – but mostly it feels like you’re just going through the motions.
You don’t feel as alive and passionate about your business as you used to feel.
Symptom #2: You wonder if this is all there is…
This might of course be a sign that you are not on purpose. Do your work and business feel meaningful to you? Do you believe in what you do? Does it matter to you what you are doing?
If the answer is yes but you still wonder if this is all there is, it could mean that it’s time to step up and grow to your next level in business – whichever level that is for you.
Symptom #3: You feel restless and uneasy, but you can’t really pinpoint what’s causing this.
Often this feeling is combined with the feeling that something is about to change for you – but you’re not sure what that is or how it is changing.
As a result you keep having these feelings you don’t understand.
Where are they coming from? And what exactly are you feeling?
This uneasiness makes you feel tired and cranky and drains your energy.
If you recognize one or more of these symptoms, chances are it is time for you to step up – again.
Chances are you are playing too small and your purpose is calling you into the next phase….
If you resonate with any of these symptoms at all, please take a moment to explore what you’re feeling and what exactly this is telling you.
You’re not just feeling this for no reason.
This is a gift.
These feelings and emotions are an invitation to grow, learn and explore what your best next step can be.
They are here to invite you to you become all you can be, in your business and your life.
This week’s Transformational Action
Take some time to be alone. Make sure you will not be disturbed for at least half an hour.
Take a deep breath. Close your eyes. Get as comfortable as you can.
Focus on the feeling or symptom that resonated most with you.
Keep breathing. Keep your eyes closed.
Now ask yourself: what is this feeling telling me? What’s the message?
What is it inviting me to do or let go of?
Keep breathing and pay attention to what comes up. It might be a word. It might be a sentence.
The message might be crystal clear or might confuse you even more. Just stay with it.
When you feel you are done (no cheating! It’ll come back to bite you in the ass some other time if you don’t listen to it now 😉 you can open your eyes.
Write down whatever it was you noticed or realized when you were focusing on that feeling.
Now take a look at whatever it was you wrote down and ask yourself:
What is the best action I can take right now to act upon this information?
If this is not very clear to you, let it rest and repeat this exercise again in a couple of days.
The answer will come. Be open to receive it and to act upon it.
And if all of this really was an invitation to play bigger: go for it!
The bigger you play, the bigger the difference you can make.
Let me know what you think! You can post your comment below. Thanks!
