The Creative Transition

For years I dreamed of writing a book. Two things came together to make that dream a reality: Focus and a driving metaphor. Focus was about what I do; my purpose. A driving metaphor was about finding inspiration to tell the story of that purpose.

When I held the published book in my hands, I was thoughtful of how I was ever able to be in that moment. The prospect of writing a book was overwhelming until I realized that 1) I was writing my book and 2) I would be consciously present with unfolding the story.

As I opened myself to the writing process, I became engulfed by the flow of the creative transition; the wonderful place of being that connected a dream to commitment and commitment to actuality. I discovered that it was only through this creative transition where I would continue my true story.

The creation of a 21st Century story of confidence and trust unfolds as we reveal the trust that is already present in each one of us. Events both good and bad, happy and sad, have brought us to the moment we now share. This is our story up to this point. The story we most desire to tell is waiting to be lived by us individually and collectively. The artful telling of this story is freed as we stand together in the creative transition; a place where we participate in a new conversation.

Only in transition do we learn to converse and connect in confidence and trust. Only through transition will we continue our true story.

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.

  1. Jeff, your last sentence in this blog post is so powerful. I have no doubt that all of the challenges we are facing on a global and personal level are there to usher us into a new age, a new way of being, and a new way or working, collaborating, creating together. Without challenge there would be no transition and, as you said, without transition there would be no change. Thank you. Whitney

  2. Jeff, the last line really drives the nail home, Transition……

    Its not what happens to us that defines us, rather its the way we react that defines us, withour events we would never respond to a pulse, and with repsonse we transition, and definitely move up…..

    Nice write up, you rock my senses…Welldone
