Playing Big by Tara Mohr kept popping up on my Facebook newsfeed from friends that were reading the book and really enjoying the book for a few months before I finally decided to pick up the book and read it for myself. And now I also agree with a lot of my friends who were posting about the book, this book is REQUIRED READING for anyone who really wants to succeed in owning their own business. There are only a handful of books that I’ve read that I actually consider required reading for people. So for a book to make that list, it has to be a pretty darn good book.
As women, we have a tendency to downplay a lot of the aspects in our lives, including how well we know something, how creative we are, or even how great we really are in a specific area of our lives. Men have no issues in these areas of life. This also plays into how much money we have in our lives. Women need to learn to step up and take control of the power that they really do have. And by reading Playing Big, you’ll be able to start to get into that control. Tara wrote this book as way of sharing her program that has changed so many people lives and helped even more to start Playing Big in their lives. This book also catapulted me to start building on some of the projects that I’ve been just holding off on and start playing big in my life in many more ways.
This book will change your life and give you the push that you need to take the leap of faith and really start playing big in your life once and for all.
My Biggest Takeaways from This Book
1. Every single woman on this Earth has this amazing power that she very rarely uses. This power can help catapult women forward in all areas of her life, but the majority of women try to be modest and downplay and give up their powers.
2. There are two main types of fear. This is something I had never really known before, but I love the way they are explained in this book. Everyone experiences both types, but we’ve never really thought about them this way. But fear is also something that we make up in our minds most of the time about something that usually doesn’t happen.
3. Our inner critic and inner mentor are our best assets. I knew about both of these before, but I never used these names. I used ego and heart/soul. But I really love the names of inner critic and inner mentor much better, so I immediately started using them when I read that part of this book. And my connection with both even grew. But not many people do have a connection with their inner mentor and inner critic, they just let their inner critic rule the roost and see that as normal. But just like we need to take control of our fears, we need to take control of and build our connection with our inner critic and inner mentor.
4. A leap of faith can be scary, but it’s a move that you really need to make. The only one holding you back is yourself, but by making a commitment to start playing big in your life, you are going to take that leap of faith, no matter how comfortable or uncomfortable you are. I know I sure did in several different areas of my life. There was nothing about this book that I didn’t like. And I actually added it to my list of books to revisit at least once a year.
Would I Recommend this Book?
Heck yes, I would recommend this book! I think it is required reading for all women, especially those who own their own businesses. So go ahead, pick up this book, you won’t regret it.
