Michelangelo once entered the studio of his contemporary Raphael.

He looked at Raphael’s work, picked up a piece of chalk and wrote the word “Amplius” across one of the drawings.

Amplius means greater or larger and is the source of the English word ample.

Michelangelo was imploring Raphael to be more ambitious with his work, to think bigger, to be more audacious.

What if the word amplius was written across your life?

What if you were capable of something greater?

What if your influence was larger?

What if your skills were world-class?

What if your vision for your life was grander?

Raphael took on Michelangelo’s challenge and became a truly great and influential artist in his own right.

Will you respond to the challenge and live an amplius life?
