Please watch this video! This is Brene Brown’s presentation at the Houston TED Conference on “The Power of Vulnerability”. This twenty minute video is life-changing. At least, it was for me. We all struggle with vulnerability. No one is completely comfortable when they feel vulnerable, but Brene shares with us that being vulnerable is THE only way to truly connect with others. She stresses the importance of connection to give us meaning and purpose to our lives.

Brene believes that vulnerability is “the birthplace of joy, creativity, love and belonging”.

Her recommendations for achieving connection with others:

  • Let yourself be seen; really seen
  • Love with your whole heart
  • Practice gratitude and joy
  • Believe that YOU ARE ENOUGH.

I would love to hear your thoughts and comments about this video.
