Overview

More than just a book, Play Your Bigger Game is a concept that will take you only nine minutes to understand but a lifetime to play. It was designed from the premise that life itself is one big game. And, if it is, then why not play one that excites, fulfills, and challenges you to develop and express your talents completely? By the way, there’s nothing wrong with wanting that. It’s a natural expression of who we are, and since each of us is blessed with talents, we’re naturally hungry to develop and put them to use. Too often we suppress that desire for full engagement and self-expression because we think it’s the grown-up thing to do. We consciously turn down our hunger dials, because we’re afraid of expecting too much from life. We also think: If I settle for less, I won’t be disappointed. Play Your Bigger Game was created to counteract that self-limiting, fear-based approach to life. It’s also designed to keep you forever in play, meaning that you’ll never be stuck again, since you’ll always have the game board to guide your next move. Michelangelo said, “The great danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short but in setting our aim too low and hitting the mark.” This book is not just about making a living; it’s about making an impact. Curiously enough, I find that once players begin to make a positive impact, their incomes often rise, too. Still, if you’re interested in simply making a living and just surviving in life, I’m afraid that this book is not for you. If you want to make an impact in the world and thrive in your life while earning a very good living, please read on. The purpose of this book is to: Reveal the Bigger Game player you already are, help you find the Bigger Games that excite and challenge you to fully deploy all of your energy and gifts, teach you to consciously design the person you’re destined to become, allow you to feed the hunger in your soul, help you to make a major impact, and allow you to leave a lasting legacy.

    A friend of mine knows the author and recommended this book to me. I am so glad she did! Play Your Bigger Game is an inspirational and easy read. The author believes that life is all made up, and we get to make it up however we want. I love that! His Bigger Game methodology points us in that direction. It's a great concept - easy to understand and you immediately begin "playing the game" before you even realize what is happening to you (I love the 9 minutes to learn, a lifetime to live tagline).




    Life can at times be hard, scary and overwhelming. The bigger game board helps you stay on track with what you want to create – be it your own “bigger game” or your day-to-day life.



    The book does a great job of sharing stories from everyday people to business executives to celebrities – all people making a difference in their worlds. Pure inspiration – it’s all possible. It’s all made up! Today I now have the courage to take a BOLD ACTION on something that I’ve been putting off doing for a long time. You can too.
