Are You Running Out of Time?

Jan 04, 2023

By Adrienne MacIain, Ph.D.

"You don't know how the future will unfold, so it is your mission to live every single day of your life to the fullest and die with no regrets, that being tomorrow or at hundred years old".

François de Neuville, The Illusion of Time: 11 Lessons How to Not Suck at Life.

We all like to think we have plenty of time ahead of us. But the truth is, we really have no idea how the future will unfold or how much of our most precious resource, time, we have left.

That's why François de Neuville wrote The Illusion of Time: 11 Lessons How to Not Suck at Life: to inspire you to stop postponing your best life for later, and start living a life you love NOW.

That’s a lesson François learned the hard way. After narrowly surviving a tsunami, he was given not only a second chance in life, but a poignant awareness of how fleeting and precious life really is. Now he wants to pay that gift forward by supporting others to live fully, with intention.

"I believe in a world where people show up as their best selves and live a created life", says François. In other words, a life we deliberately create through our thoughts, feelings, and actions in each moment, rather than a life lived in reaction to the expectations of others.

"I am on a mission to transform the lives of 40,000 people through coaching, speaking, and writing", declares de Neuville. The Illusion of Time is just one step on that journey, one he hopes will inspire readers to take hold of the steering wheel of their lives and forge their own path.

"We are so quick to make excuses for everything were unhappy about in our lives, to blame everyone and everything outside of ourselves for our unhappiness", admits François. "it takes courage to accept full responsibility for our lives. But the more we do, the more we realize that life doesn't happen to us, it happens for us".

Again, François speaks from personal experience, not just philosophy.

"Every obstacle was a gift", he explains, "I challenged myself in the military, demonstrated courage to follow my dreams, went through PTSD after a near death experience, harnessed the burning desire to get better at life, and went deep into personal growth to be able to serve others". And it is this unique combination of military experiences, nomadic lifestyle, entrepreneurship, and professional coaching skills that de Neuville credits as being the perfect breeding ground for his superpower: helping clients break through limitations and become the high-performance leaders they were always meant to be.

"I aim to lead by example; I walk my talk", says François. "I live an extraordinary life, I am content, and not scared of death anymore because I live fully! And I want the same for everyone".

To that end, François offers one-on-one high-performance coaching, group adventure coaching experiences, public speaking workshops, leadership retreats, and more. He invites you to set up a free introductory call with him today.
