It takes extra energy to be anything but myself. I can better use that extra energy to Be BIG. I am willing to step out of my comfort zones Comfort can be a sign that I am not reaching high enough. If I am on comfortable ground, I am not actively engaged in learning and growing. I am willing to take some risks I won’t take crazy risks or unwarranted risks. I will take the risks that come with speaking up and being BIG. I am willing to risk acting awkwardly, being less than perfect, and looking foolish.
Everything seems harder when I am around you. I don’t understand you I don’t understand your ideas and ways of seeing the world. I don’t see the value in your way of thinking. You have a completely different approach than I do. Since I know my approach works, yours must be wrong. 38 BE BIG: YOU I don’t trust you People like you make me nervous. I don’t trust your abilities or your motivations. We hardly ever agree on the best way to do anything. I once had a bad experience with someone like you.
I don’t think you have anything to add Your contribution doesn’t seem very signiﬁcant to me. A lot of people could do it just as well. I probably can do it better. I don’t see how what you have done adds to what we have already created. I don’t learn from what you have done before I don’t know anything about your previous experiences, and anyway, they seem to be irrelevant. I don’t care about your past. What really matters is how you are making a contribution now! 36 BE BIG: YOU I don’t see your potential I know you keep telling me you can do more, but I just don’t see it.
