So I’m inviting you to get one, and post a pic of yourself wearing
it on the blog

(P.S. it’s not a money maker for me – i think they pay a whole $2 per
shirt. Just wanted to share this shirt with you)

Guest Article by Beth Dargis, www.MySimplerLife.com and my right hand person.
I learned much at the Spiritual Marketing Telesummit, hosted by Suzanne Falter-Barns NY Times Best Selling Author of the book “How Much Joy Can You Stand.” In one of her calls she helped us think bigger.
Finding ‘Your People’ to serve
Suzanne says that the most important idea in thinking bigger is to find the right people for the gift you are giving to others. Your People will move you to a higher level in your work, by participating in your work.
You want to find people that are an appropriate group for your work. You don’t want to be serving people so far behind you in growth that you get stunted. And you don’t want to try to serve people who are already far ahead of you or you will feel inauthentic.
Finding the people that help you grow
Suzanne says it’s not just finding your people to serve, it’s finding the support people that will help you think bigger. I know David has enlarged his vision since hanging around people like Jack Canfield and others on the Transformational Leadership Council.
How big do you want to play?
Thinking bigger can be scary. You may be scared to speak to others. Or maybe thinking bigger to you means looking for a local TV spot which makes you nervous. Or connecting with people who you think are better than you – how would you even start?
But if you phrase it, “How big of an impact do I want to have?” that takes the focus off how you feel and onto how you can make others feel.
Don’t worry about failing
If you have been playing small, Suzanne says that’s fine. Failure is, “a lack of action at a particular time where growth is shown” or it could be, “a choice that leads to another course of action.” Successful people take more actions and have more failures than people that play it safe and feel less successful.
You may have stayed small in your past, but you can make a different choice next time.
This becoming bigger is hard work. Support is vital. Think about what you need to become bigger.
Gather a community around you that can support you, give you information, help you meet people and you can do the same for them. It’s harder to back out of a phone call with a potential agent if you have a group expecting you to tell them the results of the call.
And give yourself support. Ask someone to watch the kids or go for a walk or have a daily, centering time.
Remember your motivation
And a final point Suzanne had was that becoming bigger is not about looking better – having a bigger house, a better car, or knowing cool people. It’s going deeper into the natural flow of the universe. Growing as you naturally are growing and taking your business with you.
Focus on “love, understanding and growth – not fear.”
1) List ways you have stayed small at the blog.
2) Think about the impact you want to have.
3) What support do you need to become bigger? You can ask for it at the blog and maybe you can connect with someone who can help.
You can still get the recordings from the Spritual Marketing Telesummit here.
