Daring Greatly – Brené Brown

Posted by | · · · | Faith & Values | No Comments

Dr. Brené Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage. Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment and the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She explains that when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Without question, putting ourselves out there means there’s a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. Daring greatly is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

Watch Brené Brown talk about Daring Greatly below:

“Its not the critic who counts, not the main who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who’s actually in the arena, who’s face is marred by dust and blood and sweat, who strives valiantly, who errs, who comes up short again and again. Who, at best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement. Who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt
