Recent events in my life have me thinking about vulnerability. Back in school, one of my fellow students recommended this TED talk to the rest of us. To this day I repeat parts of this talk but had forgotten that those useful tidbits came from Brene Brown.
In this talk, Brene discusses how shame inhibits vulnerability. She shows how vulnerability is related to joy, happiness, fulfillment and creativity via connection.
It was a transformative talk for me. One that helped shape my personal and professional growth. The video is 20 minutes long. I promise it will be 20 minutes well spent. Give it a shot.
