Are You Playing To Win

This article by Desiree Stafford says it all. Either you are all in or you are not.
One of the biggest challenges that most entrepreneurs face is that they’re simply not playing big enough. Especially women, we have a tendency to play thegame not to lose when we really should be playing to win. In order to be successful you must be challenged and stretched to reach for where success lives, which is outside of your comfort zone.
Consider if what you’re doing today doesn’t scare you that it’s probably not a big enough goal for you. Your goals and your dreams should cause a little bit of fear. Whenever you experience a moment of pause it means that you are stretching outside of your comfort zone that’s where the magic happens. Once you start bumping up against your boundaries that’s when you know you have a choice to make. You can either stop and play it safe or push through to the other side which is where your success is waiting for you.
My request for you today is to check in with yourself about the choices that you’re making, and see if they are scaring you at least a tiny bit. When you get ready to make that phone call to pitch for a speaking opportunity, reach out to a potential joint venture partner, or enroll a perspective client into your services and you feel a little bit of fear or nervousness you will know that you’re moving in the right direction. If you feel no emotion it means that you’re probably not playing big enough, and my coaching request to you is the play full out. You need to challenge yourself and stretch beyond your comfort zone if you’re serious about living into the division that you have for your business.
