Brene Brown on The Power of Being Vulnerable (Good Life Project TV)

I found this video over at the Good Life Project TV, a weekly web-show hosted by author, entrepreneur, and lifestyle-innovator, Jonathan Fields. His latest book is Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel For Brilliance. In this episode he spoke with Brene Brown about her new book, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead.

Brene Brown: Vulnerable Is Not Weak

What if the thing most people perceive as a source of weakness to be eliminated was actually the master key to a better life?

This very awakening shook my guest on this week’s show — professor, researcher, New York Times bestselling author and all-around super-cool human Brene Brown — to the very core.

It led to not only a series of extraordinary realizations in her research and professional life, but to changes in the way she looked at herself and the world that would leave her profoundly changed.

She writes about this process, and her discoveries around the V word – vulnerability – in her new book, Daring Greatly, which is already a huge New York Times bestseller. And for good reason.

Turns out…

Within vulnerability lie the seeds of greatness.

But, as always, the conversation doesn’t stop there. We wind through the personal experiences in her own live that have led to powerful changes in outlook and focus, to what happens when faith meets science, to the intersection between vulnerability, uncertainty, risk, shame and success in business and entrepreneurship and so much more.

And be sure to watch til the end, where Brene shares her answer to the question “what does it mean to live a good life?” Truly inspiring.
