Thought-full Thursday: Vulnerability

 

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ~Brene Brown

 

How often do we consciously or unconsciously hide those flaws that draw us closer to others? I can assure you that as a leader, your followers want to connect with you through your shared humanity, including the light and the dark. When you embrace both and can show others that you are willing and able to work on the less-than-admirable side of you, they will be inspired to begin their own journey of self-discover and self-development.

  • What story are you running from?
  • What vulnerabilities do you hide that you need to embrace? What would it mean to you to be honest about your vulnerabilities?
  • How will you gain the courage to admit to the dark to begin to realize the power of your light?

“That which you or I think is most unique about ourselves we hide. In ordinary discourse, in the normal state, we share our common self, our superficial self. Yet what is most unique about us is what has the greatest potential for bonding us. When we share our uniqueness, we discover the commonality in greatness that defines everyone on the planet.” ~Robert E. Quinn

 

  • What are you hiding about yourself that could be a gift to others?
  • When you’ve shared your uniqueness with others, what have you noticed?
  • What might be the advantage of revealing more of your uniqueness for your leadership?
