A Sure Sign You're Not Living 'Big' Enough

If this doesn't happen, your dreams are too small, says Iyanla Vanzant.

Are you truly living life to the fullest? Well, here's one way to know.

"If there's not something in your life that pushes you to the point where the pee is running down your leg, then you ain't living big enough," spiritual author and life coach Iyanla Vanzant says.

That's right – Iyanla is talking about wetting your pants. But in all seriousness, it's that kind of uncontrollable excitement and fear that makes life worth living, she explains.

"There's got to be something that you hold with that just much regard, that you want it, and just to think about it makes you want to pee," she says. "Go for that. And the way you're going to go for that is to trust your source, your maker, your God, whatever you want to call it – trust that power within you that makes your thoughts and your words powerful."

Iyanla believes that putting trust in a higher power will help propel your dreams forward. "So that when you start peeing you won't stop moving," she explains. "It's alright to pee, but you got to keep on moving."

Just make sure to "wear dark colored clothing," she says with a laugh.

The important thing is that you're pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone and into the unknown. "Because if you can control everything, and you know everything and if you're in charge of everything, you ain't living big enough," Iyanla says.
