“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
– Émile Zola, French naturalist writer
Consider for a moment that the journey of life is actually a form of art. Our lives contain many components, including work, family, community, and so on. Ask yourself, “How expressed and fulfilled do I feel in these (and other) domains?”
Many of us, including myself from time to time, live quiet, reserved lives which seem to provide some degree of protection, security, and safety. These perceived benefits have a considerable cost, in that they limit the upsides of life, including joy, love, excitement, adventure, and much more.
As a coach, husband, father, son and community leader, I have decided to dare a bit more greatly and live a louder life.
Please let me know if you too will take on the challenge to pursue your own form of art and crank up the speakers to your life.
