Daring Greatly 

Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. I love all Brenes books, so let me just say that upfront. But this one is my favorite. In a world where strength and bravery are extolled, it is quite an awakening to see that it is actually when we are vulnerable and express our fears our weakness, failures that we forge stronger bonds.

Brene is encouraging us to dare, to be open up, to be seen to be vulnerable, to put ourselves out there,  going after what we need, but are afraid to pursue, letting others see us for who we really are.

Are you afraid the world will really see you, so you hide behind a veneer of a job, relationships, not speaking up? What one thing you would pursue if you were not afraid of judgment.

books to read for a better life

Brene shares this definition of courage, which is to “share all of yourself with your whole heart.”

Daringly Greatly is about encouraging us to get off the sidelines and jump into the fray of real living, even exposure, and pursuing what is important to us even when you are afraid others will judge you.

“There is no innovation and creativity without failure,” Brene states. So we must take risks to fail. Everything Brene says resonates.

Brene is not just a thought leader, she embodies a movement. It is when people show who they are; their fears, hopes, and failures -when they dare, regardless, that is when they truly live.

Get Daring Greatly here to start overcoming the fear of judgment and learn why vulnerability is so important to live a happy life away from fear.

Here is Brene talking about vulnerability. It is so powerful! It is mind shift after mind shift. Love it.

It is like being in the presence of a wise philosopher sage.
