Have a listen to this, Brene Brown is absolutely fantastic. Brene is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate college of Social work. She has spent more than a decade studying vulnerability, courage, authenticity and shame. Brene says that “vulnerability is the birthplace of love ,belonging , joy, courage, empathy and creativity. ” I picked her talk on shame however as I love her super quote by Ted Roosevelt..”It is not the critic who counts; not the man 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 is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly: who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end of the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” I dedicate this to everyone who is trying their best no matter what.
