Artistsareyouaudaciousbravecreative

When you look back at the end of your life some day, will you be able to say that you were an audacious, brave and creative artist? If you want to cultivate a beautiful life, don’t be lulled by the anti-artistic Siren songs of safety and a risk-free life. When I look back at the end of my life, I want to see audacious, brave and creative risks taken so when I breath my last breath, I know I’ll be waking up in beautiful kingdom knowing I lived well in this one. Throw in courage, kindness, loving, humble and generous… those are a few more adjectives I want to describe my life.

My family and I recently went to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Not only did we laugh and love the movie, I was inspired by Ben Stiller’s character breaking out of safety, security, and mediocrity by becoming the man he dreamed of being: Audacious, Brave and Creative!

Have you ever destroyed a dream because of the things you tell yourself? I’ve done all three of these things and more, which is why I love my friend’s new book, ShiftPoints: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life. I think you’ll enjoy this interview with Dean Del Sesto and why a shift in your thinking can change your life. You also have a chance to win a free copy…
