Dear Member, April 1, 2019 - The Power of Vulnerability

  • Share:
Last week, while on vacation, I listened to a TED Talk, "The Power of Vulnerability," featuring Dr. Brene Brown. Until then I had never realized just how powerful "vulnerability" is in our lives. More importantly how we deal with it can be the difference between an individual's/ business' success or failure. Our vulnerabilities, when harnessed and understood, allow us to fail but also allow us to continue. Admitting one's shortcomings and insecurities can be painful but it's a necessity to success.
 
Learning to be OK with oneself is the key because no matter what happens it allows us to move on and makes it OK to fail. Some of the worlds greatest superstars had to face failures before they succeeded. Bill Gates, Walt Disney, and Oprah Winfrey, just to name a few. The same applies to business. Really understanding what works for your business and what doesn't can allow you to succeed.
 
Work hard, be productive, and above all else stay positive.
