Every 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. Brené Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.
In a world where “never enough” dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive, uncomfortable, even a little dangerous sometimes…. Brené Brown explains that when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives, and that nothing is as dangerous, uncomfortable, or hurtful as standing on the outside looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena. Daring Greatly is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.
