Have you seen Brené Brown’s TedTalk on the power of vulnerability?
It is a must.
Her message is powerful: if you want to have real relationships with others, you must agree to be “seen”, i.e. you must show your vulnerability.
Our interviews are based on this idea. Our Braves not only have a brave journey; they open up to others, show themselves as they are, and thus succeed in touching the hearts of those who listen to them.
Here’s an excerpt from her TedTalk:
“And so here’s what I found. What they had in common was a sense of courage. And I want to separate courage and bravery for you for a minute. Courage, the original definition of courage, when it first came into the English language — it’s from the Latin word « cor, » meaning « heart » — and the original definition was to tell the story of who you are with your whole heart. And so these folks had, very simply, the courage to be imperfect. They had the compassion to be kind to themselves first and then to others, because, as it turns out, we can’t practice compassion with other people if we can’t treat ourselves kindly. And the last was they had connection, and — this was the hard part — as a result of authenticity, they were willing to let go of who they thought they should be in order to be who they were, which you have to absolutely do that for connection. » – Brené Brown
