I saw my friend Keith in the weight room at the gym. I’d recommended the book, “The One Minute Millionaire” to him and he was in the middle of reading it.
I asked him if it was helping him to think bigger.
His response was very short, but oh so profound. He said, “not bigger, but bolder.”
I spent days mulling on his comment.
The word “bold” has always held excitement for me. It seems daring, aggressive – something reserved for true power players.
It hints at mountain climbing, African safaris, and high-stakes stock trades. Bold people are larger than life.
“Bold” is defined in the dictionary as: “fearless and daring; courageous.”
When you think “bigger” you might see the same future, only more of it.
In other words, you could be lulled into just expanding the vision you currently have, limiting it to an already defined box.
But when you think “bolder” you are asking your mind to be more fearless, more daring in what you imagine for yourself.
Being bold means you have to release your right to be scared.
You’ll have to act in ways that shake up the comfort zone of other people in your life.
You’ll have to step out in faith (the epitome of fearless) knowing that you are not called to fail, only to succeed on a massive scale.
And that’s why so many people never live their passion.
Where are you being called to think not bigger, but bolder in your life and in your business today? What is the next, right step to take in answering that call?
Go do that. I believe in you.
