Dreaming is risky. While only some dreams can put you at physical risk, all dreams require that you take an emotional risk. By their nature, dreams create a gap between your present reality and the reality you want to have, causing you to question whether you can bridge that gap. This risk alone can be so daunting for people that they prefer to leave their dreams in their childhood or buried away beneath layers of fear, doubt, and resignation. That's why dreaming bigger dreams takes courage; it means risking the possibility that your dreams will not come true.

Just remember: other people's opinions are simply that-other people's opinions. They are not fact, and they are certainly not 'the truth.' It is your responsibility to question the authority you give others, to question opinions they want you to adopt as your own, and to question how it is they are observing the world themselves that has them seeing things as they do. Sometimes you need to take back the authority you are giving to the opinions of others and place a bit more trust in yourself.

Earlier in this book I noted that one of my favorite sayings is 'You get what you tolerate.' This applies in spades to your relationships. Failing to speak up about something carries the implication that you are OK with it-that you are prepared to continue tolerating it. As a companion saying goes, 'Silence means consent.' If you tolerate snide or offensive remarks from your boss or colleague, the remarks will continue. If you tolerate your spouse's lack of consideration for your feelings, it will continue. If you tolerate the disregard of people who regularly turn up late for meetings or social engagements, they will continue to keep you cooling your heels. If you tolerate your child's lack of respect, you will continue to get no respect. Each time you tolerate a behavior, you are subtly teaching that person that it is OK to treat you that way.

People play small for lots of reasons, but at the core of them all is fear. Playing small means playing safe-avoiding risk, failure, criticism, and the list goes on. But just imagine how incredibly different the world would be if everyone committed to playing big-taking on audacious goals, trying to make a meaningful difference, being all they could possibly be.
