Daring Greatly to Unlock Your Creativity
Vulnerability is never easy and it feels terrible, but there’s no evidence that it’s anything but courage.
~ Brené Brown
In this episode, Brené talks about how as a culture we’re raised to believe that vulnerability is weakness and so acting brave is being strong. As a society, this attitude creates a bravado – a sort of “postering, fake bravery”. She shares something that, for me, has stuck with me all these years and that’s, as creatives, we need to and get to decide whose opinions matter and whose don’t. She pulls out a short list of the people whose opinions matter to her, literally from her wallet.
Chris and Brené then talk about how you heal when someone kicks you while you’re down. Brené dives deep in conversation about building a support structure, whether that’s a therapist, coach or your community. Your support team is a huge resource, even your greatest heroes relied on their communities to find and maintain success.Brené Brown is one of my hugest inspirations. I hope you all enjoy this episode as much as I did!
