When we deny our stories, they define us.
When we own our stories, we get to write the ending.
Social scientist Brene Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall.
It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in "Rising Strong." As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself, "What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common?" The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.
Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague. Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: We "reckon "with our emotions and get curious about what we re feeling; we "rumble "with our stories until we get to a place of truth; and we live this process, every day, until it becomes a practice and creates nothing short of a "revolution" in our lives. Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness. It s the process, Brown writes, that teaches us the most about who we are.

Fantastic. Listening to Brené read her work is the only way to take it in. She is hilarious and hearing her speak her experiences and wisdom is a lot of fun and very educational.

Brene as always does a great job at telling stories. Very relevant topics for people who want a more out of life.

Not bad. Funny in parts. Useful here and there. I found it ultimately enough for me about half-way through. I can see that some would *really* like it.
