Did you see Brené Brown’s interview on CBS 60 Minutes a few weeks ago where she sang the praises of vulnerability? It spoke to me. In fact, it moved me so much, I watched it again online because I didn’t want to miss a single piece of her wisdom. And it wasn’t just wisdom she doled out, it was confirmation of something I’ve always known: Being vulnerable is actually a strong move.
It Takes Courage
If you don’t know Brenè Brown, she’s a qualitative researcher, lecturer, TEDTalker, best-selling author, and badass when it comes to vulnerability.
I thought I was alone in my fear of vulnerability–even admitting it made me feel weak, but here comes Brenè Brown with twenty years of research and over 400,000 pieces of data to prove that vulnerability isn’t weakness, it’s the path to courage. There is no courage without vulnerability.
