On this podcast episode we're diving into Brené Brown's new special on NETFLIX
Her special is a follow up to her highly viewed and powerfully inspirational TEDx talk on The Power of Vulnerability.
To kick off this episode we're leading off with the Teddy Roosevelt quote that sets the foundation for her talk.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
It is powerful stuff. Whether you're a long time listener of the podcast or new, you've heard us speak about the importance of striving in the world. It is the act of getting into the arena that counts. Not the impression of those on the sidelines.
This is something we could all use a good refresher on from time to time.
Come along with us for this ride into the world of courageous choices and emotional vulnerability. We're glad to have you here and just want to keep encouraging you to confidently dive into your own personal area. Wether you come out victorious or not does not matter in this land. We're just glad you're here.
