Nelson Mandela had passion. He led a passionate life. His passion cost him years in prison. He believed as he states in this quote that there is no passion in playing small. If you are settling for a life below your possibilities, below your potential, you are playing too small.

We all have the potential to live bigger than we think we can. It’s our own minds that keeps us from thinking big.

I remember reading the book, The Magic of Thinking Big, by Dr. David Schwartz when I was younger. This one book gave me the initial thoughts that I could be whatever I wanted to be. That I could be bigger than I had ever believed.

Don’t settle for less than you can be. There’s no passion in that. Be passionate about life. Live a big passionate life like Nelson Mandela.
