The Power of Vulnerability – Brene Brown’s Ted Talk

Just recently listened to Brene Brown’s talk again after about a year.  Honestly it would probably be useful to listen to this everyday. No joke.

Vulnerability is not something I choose to participate in most of the time, however, when I do it’s really amazing what opens up for me and those I dare to be vulnerable with.  She reminds me that vulnerability is a willingness to do something where there are no guarantees. I think of the quote (adapted from Andre Gide)

“We cannot discover new lands until we first have the courage to lose sight of the shore”

Everyday as a coach and individual committed to growth and development I am offered opportunities to practice vulnerability.  Today I’m choosing to embrace Brene’s wisdom and practice gratitude and joy. Remind myself that I am already enough. Love with my whole heart and let all of me be seen.  What does vulnerability mean to you?
