Five years ago I first heard about Brene Brown, a research professor who studied shame, fear and vulnerability. I listened to her Ted Talks, read her books and went and heard her live when she was in Winnipeg. The minute I heard her speak I knew she could help me on my life journey and be my new best friend.
She was witty, humble and made me think. Our friendship may be a one way street, (until she gets to meet me!) but until then I will continue to learn, be inspired and laugh with Brene through her various ways of sharing her knowledge.
If you have not been introduced to Brene Brown, please let me have the honors. No matter where you are in your life journey, Brene’s message will empower you to be a better person and live the life you want.
There are two things I will share with you to begin your Brene Brown journey:
- Go watch her new Netflix special: The call to courage.
- Be inspired by the same quote that inspired Brene to be brave.
“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 at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. ” ~Theodore Roosevelt
