Social Lab Work: "Vulnerability and Daring Greatly"
Use these questions to help you work through questions about the power of vulnerability from this Oprah's Lifeclass with Dr. Brene Brown.
Vulnerability isn't about winning or losing; it's having the courage to show up and be seen. When have you been vulnerable in the last month? How about the last week?
What scares you the most about being vulnerable? Are there tapes/messages that keep you from showing up in your life so you can avoid hearing people say/think those things?
We judge others in areas where we are the least secure and the most susceptible to shame. Do you find yourself judging others? How would you describe yourself in that same area?
Vulnerability is not full disclosure. It's revealing parts of yourself to those who've earned the right to hear your story. Who are those people in your life?
Is there someone in your life who will dust you off and embrace you for being brave when things go bad in the arena? Have you told that person how much that means to you?
Can you remember an instance where you felt courageous and afraid at the same time? Can you describe that moment? What happened afterward?
What do you wish you could say or do that you haven't been able to say or do before?
