Artists lead with imagination translated into form. They place themselves in the seat of vulnerability and put their vision on display to be judged in order to express a belief, connect to an emotion or share a passionate story. Artists bring people closer together by creating an experience of a performance, event or exhibition. Artists challenge, excite, comfort, and motivate people through their own repeated practice and performance.
This passion to lead and to create come from the same birthplace – our heart. When we learn to see into this and make choices from it, our creations become the richness of self awareness, family, culture, society and the world.
Today let’s celebrate the artist and leader inside all of us. We each hold a mighty sword that can either wield a powerful strike or lead a meaningful, heartfelt cause. Our responsibility is in the choices we make for that brush in hand.
