Passion – Life & Living

I often use the phrase life & living in my writing to leaders. In part I think this is so because I’ve come to see that life is an unconscious emptiness unless one is living consciously.

To live consciously—out loud—is to live with and for Impact.

“If we devote ourselves to the life at hand, the rest will follow. For life, it seems, reveals itself through those willing to live. Anything else, no matter how beautiful, is just advertising.” —Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening

While impact is technically an outcome—oftentimes expressed in virtuous terms—it is paradoxically also the beginning. And while I believe the flow is Passion to Purpose to Presence, the reality is, that once in rhythm, the flow becomes a stream where all of who you are is one.

This is Trueness moving in and for Impact.

The seed for any, and all, impact is passion. And passion, consciously freed, becomes the elemental braid holding together all you do.

In my own life & living, my passion developed my purpose. Living purposefully informed my presence. And now they are one in living consciously.

Passion allows me to have the vision.” —Ken, Coaching Client

Passion flows from the core of who you are, rhythmically engulfs you, and draws in life.

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. I love to see how we all define passion, purpose & presence. For me I use the word mindful frequently because I resonate on a level that helps me to focus with a deeper understanding with presence. It does not matter how we do it or define it, but I know it really shows up in my life & work when I slow down and practice more presence in the flow. There is always a flow of energy & I appreciate your encouragement to explore where I’m at in the stream. It does become more conscious living. And it can change everything we do and how we interact with others. Amazing words and life is an amazing journey when we pay attention.
