A year ago I was profoundly influenced by Brene Brown’s TED talk on vulnerability so I was really excited when I saw that she was at TED this month talking about the community’s response to her talk but also her response to having made herself vulnerable to, not only the 500 strong TED audience, but also 4m people when her talk went viral!
Her research and her eloquent delivery her message, “that being vulnerable is absolutely essential to wholehearted living”, gave me new insights into my own vulnerability and also a better understanding in my work with my clients and my ‘Forever’ team facing their challenges to go out into the world and do what they needed to do to be emotionally, physically and financially healthy.
This latest work and talk from Brene Brown has given me a new way of thinking about my own ‘failing’ – particularly by her telling of the ‘Man in the Arena’. I certainly know my own critic very well. I’ve been standing outside the Arena too, also thinking I’m going to go in there when I’m bullet proof and I’m perfect. How about you?
Come with me and we will dare greatly!
