How to Unleash Your Money Superhero and Win the Inner Game of Rapid Revenue Acceleration

How to Unleash Your Money Superhero and Win the Inner Game of Rapid Revenue Acceleration

If you’re reading this you are probably one of those inspired individuals who know they have gifts and talents to share with the world. Maybe you get tinglings when you daydream about all the good you can do, and when you have insightful ideas that you just need to make a reality.

The problem for big-hearted, inspired individuals though is that often the money situation doesn’t support or recognise your big goals and dreams, nor that store of wisdom waiting within you to aid humanity.

If this is you, read on, because what you are going to discover is how to unleash your inner money superhero, so that you can do what you love to do, help a huge number of people, and be handsomely rewarded for the value bring.

How to Remove the “Mind Trash” That Takes Us Out of the Game

As you’ve probably already recognised, winning the money game starts and ends between the ears. No matter how many strategies you learn, or how intelligent and logical you are, it may seem that there are other things at play that you just haven’t figured out how to operate – until now.

Maybe you’ve been frustrated in the past by learning loads of things that should have given you that massive increase in your revenue. Maybe you’ve worked incredibly hard, nearly burning yourself out in the process. Maybe you end most weeks exhausted and stressed, but still with that same nagging feeling that you’ve got a mission here on this planet, and if you can just get off the treadmill, then maybe you stand a chance of fulfilling it.

Often I find people with lots of inner value have a huge number of ideas of things they could do to help the world, and to make some cash. Often it is their inner genius that keeps them afloat against the odds.

But in the face of constant frustration and effort, sometimes it feels like the only option is to give up. Sometimes this is what we do – at least temporarily.

Sometimes the thought of stepping out of this struggle, as alluring as it might be, is a little bit scary. The identity of the struggling entrepreneur, or stay at home mom, or starving artist or energy healer is a much more comfortable place to be. And sometimes there are other things that scare the what-not out of us so much, that all we want to do is step back into our comfort zone and sabotage anything potentially life-changing that may be going on.

And when we accept all this, sometimes there is an overwhelming sense that we’re not like everyone else. How come no one else has this inner struggle? Maybe there is something wrong with me? Maybe I’m just not wired to be wealthy and successful?

Sound familiar?

Well, I’m here to tell you everyone goes through some struggle or another… There’s nothing wrong with you. You are talented, and gifted and you have a job to do on this world. You have the innate ability to change your wiring from the inside out. You have the power to drop the emotional baggage and what I call mind cabbage to think and feel in the way you should as a confident, worthy entrepreneur. All you need is a bit of insight, a few techniques and a bit of focus on your inner world, rather than just the outer world strategies.

Discover the Five-Part Combination to Unlocking Your Own Inner Money Superhero


1. Do what you love
There is a study on university leavers which separated people into two groups. Group A said they were going to follow the money and later do what they loved, and Group B would follow their passion first. It turned out, those who followed their passion were 512% more likely to become a millionaire than those who followed the money. That’s five times more likely!

So the first key is to stack the odds in your favour, by doing what you love.

Doing what you love is absolutely paramount to being able to make large amounts of cash quickly, and for a number of reasons.

Firstly – you’ll work longer and harder at something you love.

Secondly – the universe just seems to get behind you when you’re in line with your calling, your purpose. Things get easier. Serendipitous and synchronicitous events occur to give you massive leaps in progress.

Thirdly – you become magnetic to other people. Other people are drawn to passion and certainty. And, you will need other peoples’ help to achieve what you want to do – no matter how smart or capable you are. It’s just one of those laws about being able to make money… Other people need to be involved for capacity and chemistry.

2. Do what is in alignment with your personal Money Genius type
Each of us has an inner money genius. You may already have an inkling of what this is. But you may not even believe me as I say this because you’ve never experienced any kind of inner genius being unleashed on your financial world. Either way, it’s ok.

There are eight different personality types… and eight different ways to make money (corresponding with each money genius personality). Every other strategy you can think of will fit into one or two of these basic eight. Now, depending on your money genius type, there will be things that you will excel at when it comes to converting your inner value into actual money in the bank. Knowing your money genius type will allow you do what you have the best chance of succeeding at: knowing your money genius type gives you your path of least resistance. More on this shortly.

3. Create a ‘Because I’m Worth It’ Map
Central to being able to make, receive and hold onto money is feeling worthy. If you don’t feel like you deserve it you will do everything in your power to get rid of it and keep it at arm’s length. This includes manifesting parking tickets, being ripped off, and having accidents that cost you financially. This is simply rectified by reinforcing your sense of self-esteem at the very deep level.. You can find an exercise on that here.

4. Drop the Emotional Baggage
As we grow up we take on all kinds of attitudes and emotions around money, which for better or worse affect our relationship with it. There are only three ways to deal with these emotions. You are probably familiar with the first two: either suppressing or expressing them.

Suppressing an emotion means you do everything not to feel it. This leads to over spending, over eating, and an inability to focus on what you need to when it comes to your business.

Expressing is where you make sure everyone else knows how you are feeling. When you experience anger – you scream and take it out on others. You become irritable, and snappy. When you’re exciting, you expel huge amounts of energy in telling everyone how excited you are…

But releasing is the only productive way of wielding these emotions and sensations to greater success in every area of your life. Letting go of them and allowing them to become part of your wisdom not only makes you a more powerful person, but will energetically increase your frequency so you can manifest more of what you want. Think of a hot air balloon carrying sandbags. As you turf out the sandbags (emotional baggage) you allow the balloon to rise higher and higher. You feel lighter and lighter and more energetic, and things become so much easier than when you were expressing and suppressing.

The more you let go, the more you also experience greater clarity, foresight and understanding.

During the Inner Game of Rapid Revenue Acceleration teleclass, (a special session of the Rapid Revenue Acceleration Summit), we’ll cover precisely how to release your own emotional baggage.

5. Create Outcomes… Consciously

There are lots of different things to consider when creating outcomes: from crafting your outcome from a space different from the space in which the problem inhabits, to turbo charging your manifesting ability by putting your brain into alpha patterns, to making sure you’ve cleared out the emotional baggage around the desired outcome… to picking something aligned with what you love, and actually want to create.

The upshot is though, if you follow these five steps in sequence, you will already have most of it figured out. We’ll be talking about these methods at length on a special Inner Game teleclass as part of the Rapid Revenue Acceleration Summit. I know you’re going to be blown away by the methods and techniques we will be sharing with you.

Seven Fundamental Principles for Rapid Revenue Acceleration

Seven Fundamental Principles for Rapid Revenue Acceleration

During my process of creating a six-figure revenue stream in 73 days in early 2005, things were moving so fast that I didn’t have the time or self-awareness to understand why what I was doing was working.

It wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I realized a pattern to the general approach that I took: I focused exclusively on one critical element in each of the areas of:

  1. Client attraction
  2. Client conversion, and
  3. Client retention

When I looked more closely at my overall approach (and that of clients whom I’ve guided to rapidly accelerate their revenue, I identified seven key principles, which I’ve now dubbed “The 7-ONES Rule.” (Coincidentally, the very first client I guided to rapidly accelerate his revenue bested my record and created his annualized six-figure revenue stream in 71 days. But that’s not the only reason why I came up with the 7-ONES Rule; it’s mainly because there are seven principles, each of which involves focusing on ONE thing, as you’ll see below)

Here are the seven principles that make up “The 7-ONES Rule:”

  1. Focus on ONE audience. The more specific, the better. But don’t fall into the trap of getting paralyzed just because you don’t have your audience perfectly identified. At the least, just start with an audience that you naturally are drawn to. For me, that’s independent service professionals.
  2. Focus primarily on ONE lead-generation source. Whatever lead-generation source you choose, be sure it that the source naturally aligns with your values and business philosophy. In my case, when I was starting out, I didn’t have many good choices. So I simply found sources where my audience congregated. And that was through networking or leads groups. So I visited as many of those group breakfasts as I could.
  3. Focus on using ONE client conversion mechanism. Make sure your conversion mechanism of choice plays to your strengths and naturally showcases your expertise and the value you provide. I started out using free strategic session, but as I gained experience and insight, I ultimately began using paid strategic sessions exclusively.
  4. Focus on developing and offering only ONE high-end option for working with you. Optimally, this should a high-end service, program, or product with built-in continuity. Continuity means that once a client buys, they are committed to working with you for specified duration of time, rather than a one-time purchase. Originally, I offered monthly coaching services at $1500/month, with a 12-month long commitment.
  5. Focus on winning ONE new client at a time.I remember how excited I was after I signed up my very first client. Then my next immediate thought after that was: “Where’s the next one coming from?!?” It turns out that the meeting I had the very afternoon turned into another high-end client.The point is that it’s easy to get worried and lose confidence if you start thinking about how long a road you may have ahead of you.Although it initially seemed like it was going to take forever and a day, I had to repeat my “mantra” on a daily basis: “one client at a time.” Ultimately, within 73 days, I had 7 clients paying $1,500/month for my business coaching services.
  6. Focus on taking specific actions ONE day, ONE week, and ONE month at a time.It’s easy to get overwhelmed by attempt to tackle too much, all at once, by yesterday. Piling your plate high with activities doesn’t align with productivity, that is, producing results. Take action only on those items that are most likely to bring you immediate new business. Everything else goes on the “someday, but definitely not now” list.In my case, that meant there was no way I was going to invest any time or energy writing copy for a website. Or getting a logo designed for a business card. Or any of the other items that may seem like essentials for your business success. Instead, I put my energy into having conversations, either individually or in small groups, to invite people to attend my very first seminar.
  7. Focus your resources and efforts based on a ONE year timeline to implement your plan and refine your strategies and tactics based on results you produce.


  1. For each of the “rules of ONE” above, write down your plan for adhering to each rule. Your plan doesn’t need to be overly complicated or lengthy. Brevity and simplicity are best in this situation!
  2. EXTRA CREDIT:If you’re serious about creating a 6-figure revenue stream the fastest way possible, I invite you to join my Accelerated 6-Figures Special Interest list. Why? Because I’m planning to create a free training program that lays out the principles, best practices, and key elements you need to reach six figures and beyond.
    But hurry and get on this list, because only the people on this list will get the training for free. And this list will be closing around mid-May 2012; after that, I can’t guarantee that the free training will still be available (but a paid version will be!)

Alan Got Ripped Off

Alan Got Ripped Off

Several days ago, I picked up a voice mail on my phone from a someone I hadn’t heard from in over 9 years. He said on his message that he just wanted to touch bases.

I called him back last night, expecting to start a game of “voicemail tag,” but was pleasantly surprised to get a live person on the line! I know Alan from a number of criss-crossing paths. We first met when we were both taking the same series of personal growth and business training programs. Like me, his background is in the health care field. And for years, I’ve be a subscriber to the newsletter that he writes on the topic of health and wellness.

While it was fun to catch up, one thing he mentioned along the way just stunned me…

I asked his about a wellness program that he developed several years ago and how that had panned out. While he had done well with the program, he told me that a couple of years ago, he sought to expand his product and program offerings. On the recommendation of another colleague, he hired a “marketing consultant” to help him with his website and online promotions.

While I don’t understand all the details, this particular marketing consultant didn’t produce the results he was expecting: An updated website, educational videos, active online promotions, and so forth.

When Alan took steps to terminate the working relationship, something went wrong. Somehow, the marketing consultant took the end of their collaboration as permission for him to take ownership of the content that he had taken years to create.

This marketing consultant created an independent web site, including videos that he had been asking for, branded the material with his name, and began marketing the content online. And since then, he’s kept all the revenue for himself.

This story pains me, because such a situation was entirely avoidable. Alan didn’t understand the fundamentals of collaboration. So he hired, and eventually, partnered with someone without asking the right questions and establishing a durable working relationship.
He didn’t address critical issues, right up front, such as:

  • Who controls the content and owns the copyrights from what gets co-created?
  • Who controls the strategy and management of the collaboration?
  • How will profits (and losses) be distributed? Equally? Unequally?
  • How will we resolve disagreements?
  • Under what circumstance and how will we dissolve the collaboration?

In fact, most people who associate in working relationships with others don’t think to ask such questions; they’re too excited to get on with the “fun stuff.”

It just so happens that tonight, January 17th at 5 pm Pacific, I’ll be co-leading a “Collaboration Catalyst” teleseminar with partnership and relationship expert, Dorene Lehavi, PhD.

During this complimentary 75-minute session, you’ll learn:

  • How to select and choose good collaborators.
  • What to make sure you include in your working agreements.
  • What to do when things aren’t going well with your business associates.
  • And much, much more.

As you might imagine, I basically begged Alan to join us, before he contemplates getting involved in another business partnership.

I hope you will, too, so I don’t end up writing about your business collaboration horror story.

Okay, I’ve said my piece and feel I’ve done everything I can to encourage you to become informed about the power and pitfalls of collaboration.

The Wrong Way to Start a Business

The Wrong Way to Start a Business

Based on true stories (names changed to protect the guilty)…

Helen: James, great to see you again!

James: Helen, it’s been a long time! What have you been up to?

Helen: Oh, lots of things! But the biggest news is that I’m working on a potential large-scale project with a software development company. They’re having trouble with employee morale.

James: Wow, that’s interesting because I’ve recently worked out a powerful method of selecting the right people for selecting team members and leaders. And then getting team members to work well together. It’s called the “I-Factor Method.”

Helen: “Really? That sounds great!

James: Yes, it really works well and I have stats, testimonials, and case studies to back it up. My only problem is there’s just one of me and I don’t have the time or energy to handle all the work.

Helen: Well consider your problem solved. I’ve been using an approach that I call the “Fruit Fly Factor.” This approach is revolutionary; it allows the users to essentially clone themselves and leverage their time and energy.

James: No kidding. Well if we could put the “I-Factor Method” together with the “Fruit Fly Factor,” we’d be sitting on a gold mine!

Helen: Yeah, that’s a great idea!

James: Let’s start a business together!

Helen: Yeah, lets!

James: Let’s shake on it!

Helen: Deal!

Helen and James both burned a lot of midnight oil, trying to get their business model off the ground.

They were so excited about this new business idea, that both of them took their attention away from their existing businesses. So now cash flow was a big problem.

But after a year of struggling to agree on marketing plans, their marketing message, and compensation formulas, Helen and James were barely on speaking terms.

Yeah, I know. This scenario sounds overly simplistic, doesn’t it? But the sad reality is this type of scenario plays itself out, in various shapes and forms, on a daily basis.

Last year, I wrote an article about the power of collaboration, through the experiences of young children working on a project together: Is the “Competitive Advantage” Really An Advantage? The Case for “Collaborative Advantage”. It turns out that that younger children were more effective in working together than the older ones. As adults in business, the problem is that most of us don’t understand where to start, what to consider, what to ask, or how to proceed, when it comes to working with others, either formally or informally.

So whether working together in a formal partnership, a joint venture, a consortium of businesses, or some other form of collaboration, most of these undertakings are doomed from the start.

Most people get so excited about their ideas and about working together, that they missed key steps of laying a solid foundation for their collaborative efforts.

And one of those key steps is writing out your agreements. Agreements are simply statements of what you are committed to achieving, how you will work together, who is responsible for what, and so forth.

Not exactly the first place you’d think to start. It’s just not as exciting as working on your product development, or going out to market your services. But in the absence of agreements, chaos reigns.

In my own business experience, I’ve been burned more than once through lack of agreements. And so have some of my clients (before they started working with me).

These experiences fueled my quest to figure out how to successfully collaborate with others, formally and informally. Fortunately, I came across the work of Dorene Lehavi, Ph.D.

As a specialist in supporting healthy, happy relationships, Dorene has used her background as a social worker, therapist, and coach to help countless entrepreneurs and business leaders achieve success—in spite of seemingly insurmountable differences with their business partners, colleagues, and collaborators.

Based on our shared commitment to ushering in a new economic era based on connection, collaboration, and communication, Dorene and I are both on a mission to support entrepreneurs in learning how to work with others, synergistically and in ways that ripple benefits far beyond the business itself.

If you are considering or currently are working on a joint effort with one or more other people, we would like to share our combined experience, ideas, and insights for how to get started on a solid foundation.

Join us on Tuesday, January 17th at 5pm Pacific Time for the “Collaboration Catalyst” teleseminar.


During this 75-minute session, you’ll learn:

  • Why working with others is the business model of the future.
  • The single most important place to start when considering working with one or more individuals or businesses.
  • How to select and choose good collaborators.
  • The three essential elements you need in your agreements, the absence of which will guarantee failure.
  • And much, much more.

Who can benefit?

If you are currently involved in one or more of the following (or planning to be), there’s a good chance you’ll learn things that could mean the difference between outrageous success and costly failure:

  • Partnership
  • Joint venture
  • Strategic alliance
  • Consortium
  • Working on a team

P.S. If you’re sick and tired of working as a “Lone Ranger,” with or without a “Tonto,” be sure to join us. What we have to share will open your mind to another world of practical options!

P.P.S. Even if you’re not interested in learning about working more effectively with others, I invite you to read the article I mentioned above what young children can teach us about the power of collaboration. Here’s the link again:  Is the “Competitive Advantage” Really An Advantage? The Case for “Collaborative Advantage” 

The Exponential Bottom Line: Is It Time to Upgrade Your Business Measures of Success?

The Exponential Bottom Line: Is It Time to Upgrade Your Business Measures of Success?

When I operated on a patient as a surgeon, I couldn’t just deal with the various anatomical and physiologic systems as if they were magically isolated. Indeed, the health of the underlying vascular system dictated where I could make surgical incisions in the skin and where and how far I could rotate skin, fat, and muscle to reconstruct a body part or close a complex open wound. I had to consider multiple factors, including the limitations and consequences of the factors individually and collectively. Clearly, integrating and adhering to fundamental surgical principles and “best practices” increased the odds of the surgery being a success – a life is saved, a limb is salvaged, a face rejuvenated.

In the business world, we deal with multiple, complex, and changing variables as well. But traditionally, instead of saving lives and limbs, the ultimate measure of success in business has been to ever increase the single bottom line of profit. To our great detriment, this goal has frequently been undertaken with an attitude of “success at any and all cost.” In large part, this mindset has contributed to the global economic turmoil and ecological endangerment that we find ourselves grappling with today.

As various parts of the world have dominoed into economic and social turmoil, I’ve felt an inner calling to contribute ideas and energy to lead and encourage fellow entrepreneurs to be part of the solution. A couple of years ago, I started hosting an interactive conference call series entitled, “Conscious Leaderpreneurship Conversations.” These calls were inspired by my desire to experiment and expand the blending and showcasing of spiritual awareness as the cornerstone of success and fulfillment in the entrepreneurial world and expanding the depth and breadth of how we, as entrepreneurs, can blaze trails into a new era of prosperity.

Inspired by these conversations, I’ve outlined five fundamental business principles and practices that I collectively termed the “Exponential Bottom Line.” In contrast to the single bottom line of profit, this term refers to five business practices that reflect how a business:

  • Enhances the quality and duration of the lives of People today as well as future generations to come.
  • Restores and renews the resources and ecosystems of our Planet.
  • Generates Profit sustainably, fairly, and responsibly.
  • Promotes Prosperity locally and globally.
  • Models and perpetuates Peace through its values, mission, vision, business practices, and ultimate impact on society.

While the specific practices and principles that I outline are nothing new, the context is. In fact, the “Triple Bottom Line” of “people, planet, and profit” has been championed for years. But to me, those three elements alone are still too “stingy.” It felt as though something was missing. So I added the elements of “prosperity” and “peace.” I assert that these five elements constitute a fresh, holographic, and integrated approach to how a “prosperity era” business makes its mark on the world.

Here’s my challenge to you
Embracing the mindset of the “Exponential Bottom Line” is one thing. Applying it in the real world is another. Under economic and a myriad of other pressures, existing mindsets, practices, and habits tend to persist and “die hard”.

Yet, consider what might be possible if we adopted the notion that rather than the singular focus of profit at any and all cost, we focused our entrepreneurial endeavors on playing a bigger game – one of challenging ourselves to define what each of the parameters of the “exponential bottom line” means to us and our particular businesses. The next step would be to apply and fold these ideals into our daily business activities in creative and innovative ways.

To play this game, it would take a commitment to reinventing our business models and practices. It would take a willingness to tell a different and bigger story about ourselves, what we stand for, what we’re willing to fight for.

If adopted by even a fraction of businesses and consumers worldwide, the practice of the exponential bottom line” ideals could synergistically shift the dynamics of commerce to effect lasting change and transformation in our global economy, ecology, and sociology.

Now, isn’t that a game worth playing? In what ways will you take this on challenge?

Playing a Bigger Game: What Does It Mean to You?

Playing a Bigger Game: What Does It Mean to You?

A lot of people talk about playing a bigger game. Few understand what it takes to play. Even fewer actually take on playing the bigger game.

What does it mean to you to play a bigger game in your life? There’s no right or wrong answer here, because everyone is going to have a different definition of what playing a bigger game means to them.

For me playing a “bigger game” means challenging my beliefs, my ways of thinking, how I feel about myself, others, and the world at-large. It means challenging my decision-making criteria and processes, challenging the actions that I take. Challenging my ego and who I think I am, my sense of self and self-worth. Growing myself to be grounded emotionally and spiritually. Maintaining my physical senses and capacities (last time my personal trainer checked, I could leap onto a platform 48″ off the ground, from a standing start. Oh yeah, I’m 66″ tall). And taking on stimulating intellectual challenges. It means actively seeking opportunities to connect to and collaborate with other like-minded, like-hearted, and like-spirited individuals and groups. It means asking questions about where I choose to focus and invest my time and energy.

Playing a bigger game means crafting a bigger story about who I say I am, what I’m out to accomplish, and raising my energy and enthusiasm to meet life’s challenges that invariably come with playing a bigger game. It means being willing to continually reinvent myself and my approach to life.

When it comes to others, the people I resonate the most with are those who have big dreams for themselves and an even bigger vision for the world. For the entrepreneurs I work with, their dreams aren’t just about themselves at all; they are about making a meaningful, lasting difference for others, for organizations, and the planet, fueled by the success of their business. And of course, they want to produce more profit, with less stress and effort, and have more time and energy to contribute in ways above and beyond their business. Ultimate freedom!

In the spirit of playing a bigger game, I’ve written out top priorities for what I intend to contribute to the world. Some of these things are big deals, at least for me. I mean, they are really, really important to me and it’s become more clear to me how important they are. Important not as a “someday, one day” dream, but important in that I can feel more energy focused in these areas and they are coming closer into view.

The closest thing I can relate this to is when I was playing tennis tournaments. I remember being behind in certain matches and then having an inner knowing that I was coming back to win. I didn’t know how I was going to do it. But most times I did. I feel that now.

  • Overall, the biggest thing I want to influence, beyond raising our sons to be blended people, is to alter the prevailing approach to education. I think I went through 27 years of formal education and training so I could gain a perspective on how poorly we teach, educate, and train young people and adults.These days, too many parents are preparing their children for a “race to nowhere.” (Yes, I’d like to see that movie). Do you really need to be concerned about your kid getting into an Ivy League school when they’re only 4 years-old? I mean, there’s a woman in Manhattan who is suing the day-care she has her 4-year-old in because they aren’t teaching her things that will prep her for an Ivy League university. No kidding! (I graduated from an Ivy League school, Brown University, and I promise you, my parents did NOT put me in an “Ivy-League prep preschool.”)
  • I’d write books that blend business with personal growth, transformation, and spirituality.
  • I’d provide more financial support for my wife’s parents, above what we’re doing now.
  • I’d make sure that the “Narada Fund” for scholarships to Living Wisdom School-Seattle is well-endowed (Narada was our close friend who passed away a earlier this year).
  • I’d set up a building fund to support Living Wisdom School-Seattle to purchase its own land with buildings and/or construct its own facilities.
  • I’d figure out how to support the growth of the Education for Life philosophy throughout the world. I’d also investigate how I could support other existing Living Wisdom Schools in Portland, Palo Alto and Nevada City. And maybe help to start one in Italy, just outside of Rome.
  • I’d investigate funding movies that have a spiritual message. There are people who already do that, funding Hollywood-caliber productions. I once took a class from Stephen Simon, the producer of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Somewhere In Time; he went on to create the Spiritual Cinema Circle.
  • For my brother and sisters, they are well-off, so money isn’t an issue for them, but I’d still take them on a cruise or something like that. The challenging part is that my “family of origin” dynamics are such that “little brother” doesn’t usually take care of the protective, older siblings.
  • I might consider participating in medical missions, but I’m not sure.
  • For myself, I think I’d play more tennis. I don’t need more “things”, but the only “gadget or gizmo” I’d really want to get for myself is a super high-end Bose sound system for my computer. (Sure I could buy one now, but in light of all the other things I’m going for, it’s just not a burning, top-of-mind priority; the others above it are more meaningful to me). Other than that, I don’t personally need much more. I’m more interested in simplicity.
  • There are plenty of things I’d do with and for my wife and kids, but they don’t really need a whole lot more of “things” either. I’m sure there are more things I could add to this list, but that works for me, for starters.

How about you?

  • What does it mean to you to play a bigger game?
  • What’s your practical approach to playing a bigger game?
  • What stops you from playing a bigger game?

I invite you to share your thoughts and comments below, so we can learn from each other as we expand our concepts about what it means and how to play a bigger game than we’ve ever played before. The future of our world is counting on us to play at that level.
