Reflections for Your Awareness (Giving – Act to Art)

The real gift is not that which is given, though, as much as it is the fact that something was given.  The impact, then, becomes the goodwill and spiritual energy that passes between two individuals.  The flow of generosity from one to another strengthens the bond between them.  … Learning to give in this way elevates giving from an act to an art.

While he may not see himself as such, Ed is a giver. Like any giving leader, Ed’s power is in a selfless approach to do no harm. Don’t misunderstand, Ed takes care of himself in order to better care for those he leads, influences, and serves.

As leaders, our goodwill toward another flows through the energy of a developed, casual style of being with. And this style is a result of our continual commitment to learn, grow, and develop; making self better to better serve others.

Act to Art
The impact of such a customized integrity is born into conscious presence by the act of giving. To actually give of oneself is no small thing. It takes energy to act, which is why it is so important that your energy is consistently restored. This keeps generosity in flow and moves the act to art.

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. Beautifully said. I agree that the act, or shall I say, the art of giving goes so far beyond the thing that was given. Your post is also a great reminder to take time to renew yourself so that you continue giving to others.

  2. That flow of energy, that giving is what connection is all about. And that connection is what makes good leaders (and good friends). Thank YOU for sharing and continually giving of yourself, Jeff.
