“The essence of freedom is something that is able to overcome its own boundaries. The question is not only to be able to define things, but also to have the boundaries be felt in the proper way – they are defining but not limiting.”

Frank Stella


Coaching Point: As an artist Stella is speaking to the freedom to create art, but “…able to overcome its own boundaries” is a pretty delicious description of any kind of freedom.

Have your boundaries, limits, standards, and views. Honor them. Then be willing to feel beyond them to experience what else is possible, maybe even more desirable.

Is that how you experience freedom? Your boundaries are “defining but not limiting”?
