Brene Brown’s book, Daring Greatly, How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way we Live, Love, Parent and Lead discusses the ways in which shy people and those who tend to be more quiet throughout life are able to achieve the things that they want most in life simply by following those same traits that they have always followed. For those who have never been willing to stand up in front of a crowd and voice your opinion this is a book that will explain exactly how those feelings actually help you.
Vulnerability as Courage
For most people the idea of vulnerability being courageous seems like an oxymoron but it’s actually not. This book talks about the different traits of people who are vulnerable and who know what it means to be vulnerable. It then talks about how that simply trait all by itself is able to make those vulnerable and quiet people stronger and better equipped for life than some of the most outgoing people around the world. There are many reasons that being vulnerable can help someone who wants to be a good parent or lead a group of people and they are discussed throughout Daring Greatly.
It took over twelve years for Brene to create this book but it is great for those who are ready to make changes in their life. For those who have never been able to overcome their fears of being the center of attention this book explains reasons to feel better about yourself instead of feeling bad for the way that you have always lived your life. Being vulnerable opens you up to many new opportunities and many new experiences with love as well as leadership and even raising children of your own.
In all different areas of life there are benefits to being willing to be vulnerable. Someone who is courageous at all times and is not able to experience vulnerability is not able to achieve as much throughout life because they have less ability to do things that are different for them. Being vulnerable is a scary experience and that’s why it can be difficult for some to follow along with this type of lifestyle. Brene Brown will teach readers about the best way they can find the courage to be vulnerable in their life so that they achieve all the things they are hoping to achieve in their everyday life.
