    Daring Greatly is about some of the scariest human emotions. Among these emotions include vulnerability, guilt, shame, fear, isolation, and scarcity to name a few. It tells of how important it is for a person to be vulnerable in their life. The author tells us that our fear of being vulnerable is what puts us at risk of leading an unsatisfied, bruised, and potentially isolated life. If you have ever felt any of the above mentioned emotions, as I’m sure you have, then it’s essential that you take an hour or so of your time to sit down and read this important work of art. It will change the way you feel about yourself, as well as those close to you.

    Shame and vulnerability are something that all of us as human be

    Shame and vulnerability are something that all of us as human beings has experienced at least once in our lives. This Author gives you tips on how to turn those into positive experiences. I really liked the chapter on disengagement. People in power positions such as Priests and Politicians, are expected to behave a certain way and carry themselves a certain way. That is a lot of pressure to put on a person. We are all human and make mistakes. The Author gives plenty of examples of how people in power positions will act a certain way in public but can be totally different when they are out of the public eye. Everything this Author says makes perfect sense. Vulnerability and shame are usually looked at as bad things. This Author is amazing in her way of turning them into very positive experiences. I encourage everyone to pick up a copy of this book!

    I have followed Brene Brown's work since I saw the first of her

    I have followed Brene Brown's work since I saw the first of her amazing TED Talk videos a few years ago.  The title is "the Power of Vulnerability," and I watched it because I could not understand how anyone would ever think Vulnerability could make you powerful... what was TED thinking?  By the end of the video I was starting to think that maybe I had been wrong, she made a compelling argument that being vulnerable, being open to your own imperfection was a powerful way to achieve personal happiness, good health and positive relationships at home and in the office.  I watched her other free video, then I stumbled on this concise summery of her work "Daring Greatly... in 30 minutes," and I knew I had to buy it.  After reading the book I can confirm, I am hooked.  It contains explanations of a number of her key topics from her videos, goes deeper into how to cultivate WholeHeartedness in your daily life and gives a lot of info on how she devised her theories.  My favorite segments is where she talks about how men react to shame by withdrawing or being angry and women react to shame with criticism... just that small segment has deeply effected my ability to communicate openly with my loved ones and been of far more use than therapy, couples counseling or thousand page books on the subject.  Thank you Ms. Brown, I am starting to live a more balanced, appreciative, successful life.  I am starting to really understand the power of my own vulnerability.

    Daring Greatly¿in 30 minutes is a summary of the self-help book

    Daring Greatly…in 30 minutes is a summary of the self-help book written by Brené Brown, PhD., LMSW.   Brené recalls catastrophic events like 9/11, Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and natural disasters that have caused Americans to experience post-traumatic stress which is manifested by a sense of scarcity which is driven by shame and fear. Although living in a state of wholeheartedness makes us vulnerable it is this vulnerability that leads to having better relationships with family, friends and in business. The summary provides great insight on why people experience shame and techniques  for shame resilience. It also offers several helpful tips on living wholeheartedly such as nurturing, self-kindness and being mindful.

    Reach for it!
    After reading Daring Greatly…in 30 Minutes, I have realized how easily shame can prevent us from reaching our true potential. This summary book covers the work on Brene Brown, who informs us that shame is responsible for our inability to “dare greatly” as Theodore Roosevelt once said. To combat shame, we are encouraged to cultivate vulnerability. This summary gives the reader very specific steps to do so in a way that is easy for a reader. Sometimes book summaries can be so short that you feel that you are missing important concepts from the original, but in this case, I felt like I got just enough information to understand the Daring Greatly concept.
