The 1 New York Times bestseller now in paperback From thought leader Dr Bren Brown a transformative new vision for the way we lead love work parent and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability 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 worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly Theodore RooseveltEvery day we experience the uncertainty risks and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly Based on twelve years of pioneering research Dr Bren Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is in truth our most accurate measure of courage Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear grief and disappointment and the birthplace of love belonging joy empathy innovation and creativity She writes When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and... meaning to our lives Daring Greatly is not about winning or losing It s about courage In a world where never enough dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature vulnerability is subversive Uncomfortable It s even a little dangerous at times And without question putting ourselves out there means there s a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt But when we step back and examine our lives we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable dangerous and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena whether it s a new relationship an important meeting the creative process or a difficult family conversation Daring Greatly is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen more
