    idiom

    To see a larger promise (in case we do not follow the rules)


    What exactly does it mean?

    Thank you

    Do you have more context? It can mean more than one thing.

    Some kids, when playing, got too attached to the rules but one of them wasnn´t like that because she always saw a larger promise.


    Could it be, see 'further??

    She saw more opportunity/opportunities could be gained by not sticking to the rules.
