Know Thyself – Desire & Intent in the 21st Century

Your unique Desire & Intent for those you lead, influence, and serve is your Living Methodology as a human being.

This Desire & Intent is what makes you a leader in this 21st Century.

This swirling together of desire and intent forces your presence in the middle; a place of natural tension from which you lead in the balance of Trueness (who you really are).

My coach said something powerful after she pointed out, making me super-conscious of, how I had built my life around my natural strengths−a Living Methodology. She said, “There is no veil between this methodology for you and this methodology for your clients. My methodology of Gathering, Giving, Growing is my story: a living unfoldment.

My work and life are rich because of this.

I desire this for you.

The Living Methodology for you must become your guidance for executing on the most important issue for you, those you lead, and all that is collectively represented.

My studies over the past few years have pushed me into the ground of who I am−my own Trueness. I have become vividly aware of two facts concerning my own Desire & Intent. One is that once committed to it, as I am, there’s no getting out of it, only getting into it. Two is the realization that it is not about soaring or running in the power of Desire & Intent, it’s about becoming a grounded being−a steady walk in my Trueness.

Do not underestimate the importance of Knowing Thyself, and sharing accordingly.

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.

  2. …..once committed to it, as I am, there’s no getting out of it, only getting into it. …..

    And how often do we try to “get out of it”!!! Well said – and a good reminder for those of us who coach. Helping our clients understand that it is OK to get more into who they are and not try and get out of who they are.

    The challenge as I see it is helping them find really who they are and at the same time how they can express / behave in a way that is aligned to who they are while not tromping on others in the meantime. Especially if there are some really significant aspects of their behavior that are blocking their success. To say they cannot get out of those behaviors might lead them to believe they can say “Well, this is just who I am. Take it or leave it.” And for a leader that can be a real show stopper! So it is finding how their true selves can be translated into behavior that works to their success – rather than tripping them up.

    • Thanks Coach Judy! And … well said. I think part of the solution to prevent the ‘tripping’ is consciously grasping our limitations with our strengths. At least that is what I’ve been learning! Thanks for all you do!
