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.
