You wouldn't think learning to be vulnerable and authentic would be so difficult, but it is. It's also necessary to experience love and feel worthy. This is a great Ted talk. Speaking STRONG is about standing up for your whole and true self - in a way that gains your respect and recognition.
Enjoy this powerful - and authentic - talk by Brene Brown on Ted. As a child of academia, I like the idea that so many researchers are considering personal experience as a legitimate and important area to pursue. I love the people who take the time to seriously study these things and to quantify them. I also know that often research spends a lot of money to prove things we can figure out with a little observation.
Brown advocates letting yourself be really seen. Confident people, she says, are whole-hearted and vulnerable. I knew that! I'm glad she took the time to prove it!
