Big Fish – Small Bowl

Are you a big fish in a small bowl?

  • If the only people who ever communicate to you that you are good at what you do are your parents or close friends…you’re a big fish in a small bowl.
  • If you never prepare for what you do and “winging it” is the acceptable modus operandi…you’re a big fish in a small bowl.
  • If in your leadership, you rule your team with an iron fist and it’s “your way or the highway”…you’re a big fish in a small bowl.
  • If you never take time to learn from others that are farther along in your endeavors than you are…you’re a big fish in a small bowl.
  • If you’re content with “going with the flow” and “never swimming against the current”…you’re a big fish in a small bowl.
  • If all you do is complain about the culture around you and do nothing to create culture…you’re a big fish in a small bowl.
  • If you can’t take honest criticism of your work without getting your feelings hurt…you’re a big fish in a small bowl.
  • If you’re afraid to chase your dreams because you only focus on how you will fail…you’re a big fish in a small bowl.
  • If your faith is only strong enough to get you through things that you can most likely do without God’s help…you’re a big fish in a small bowl.

Fish will only grow as big as their surrounding environment allows.  Once they reach their environment’s limit, they stop growing.  They end up the big fish in a small bowl.

You basically have two choices for big fish/small bowl syndrome.  Stay where you’re at and stop growing, or make a quality decision to constantly expand your environment.  Bigger bowls produce bigger fish.

Be blessed!
