Go big or go home.
Isn't this the message we're bombarded with?
That the only way to make an impact is to have a big list? To have a program that fills out? To write a bestseller?
Going big your thing? You're awesome. Go for it. You've got this! Namaste :)
Having a little trouble with the whole 'big' thing? You know...you're pretty awesome, too.
Allow me to share this little Rumi nugget with you.
"My heart is so small, it's almost invisible. How can You place such big sorrows in it? "Look," He answered, "your eyes are even smaller, yet they behold the world.""
One thing I've learned over and over during the time I've run this business is that the world doesn't reveal itself to me in the big things - it unfolds itself in the small, and seemingly insignificant, things.
Every time I've focused my energy in the pursuit of 'big', I've only ever ended up feeling small.
Every time I've focused my energy in making the most out of the smaller things, I've only ever ended up feeling useful, and fulfilled.
What are the 'smaller things'?
Sharing reflections spontaneously.
Opening up a conversation.
Sending an unexpected email.
Creating something - not part of a big master plan, but just because you're being called to create it, right at that moment.
Don't let the size of things determine what success means to you.
Bigness is awesome, but it comes with a cost. (Both emotionally, and literally).
Appreciate all of the smallness.
It's the smallest of things that lead to the greatest impact.
Ps. Let's celebrate small together. What small things can you be grateful for? Come and tell me here - I've created a special post on Facebook to connect with you :)
