"The Bigger Game is based on the belief that we all hunger for a fulfilling life - a life filled with meaning and purpose - for ourselves and for the people around us." (from The Bigger Game intro)

I came across The Bigger Game a few years ago when I had the good luck to meet one of its founders, Laura Whitworth. She was a woman on fire! She had a fierce determination to make the world a better place and to make a difference in each and every person that she encountered. You couldn't help but catch on fire when you were around her.

Catching on fire is what The Bigger Game is all about. It ignites an excitement for living and working in the world in a way that is daring, bold and DEEPLY SATISFYING!

And, this book doesn't just leave you standing at the precipice of being on fire and wondering what to do next. The Bigger Game book reads as if it were a mentor sitting next to you, going through all the ups and downs, fears and "what if's?" that come with taking the leap to live your life in a bigger way. I love that this model treats the successes and the pitfalls with equal measure and recognizes the gifts of both. The Bigger Game unmasks the words "problem" and "failure" so that they become part of the playing field.

Each easy-to-read chapter is a guidepost that reveals not only the steps to success but also exposes the pathway out of the pitfalls.

The Bigger Game is for everyone: the seasoned player or organization that wants to morph their game, to the one lone person seeking to make a difference. It offers a brilliant synergy of self inquiry, savvy business analysis, excitement, inspiration, and mentoring support all rolled up into an inspired guidebook for how to live your life's passion and make the world a better place - both at the same time!

Run, don't walk to get this book!

I've found so many self-help books rely merely on catch phrases and temporary fixes for life's more difficult times. They're trendy and they may make Monday or Tuesday a little easier to deal with -- but what about the rest of the week? What about your entire life? I was amazed to find THE BIGGER GAME deals not with those quick little band-aids for life's bruises, but with an entirely new way to look at things. It's transformative in the extreme. Reading this, applying the tools it offers, I'm inspired to look at *everything* in a new way. I've already seen dramatic changes in my work, my relationships...my life! Best purchase I've made in a long, long time.
