That sense of connection to yourself and to others that’s authentic, vulnerable, and courageous. Helping us navigate our quests for true belonging is what the book is all about. First step: We need to know that requires a trip into the hero’s forest of the unknown. Which demands “braving the wilderness.”
Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston. She’s spent the last 15+ years studying courage, vulnerability, shame and empathy and is the author of three #1 NY Times bestsellers: , Rising Strong and . (We currently have Notes on two of those… Need to get to Rising Strong! :)
I think the reason why Brené is so popular and such a powerful teacher is that she’s such a powerful EXEMPLAR of the very things she studies and teaches: courageous, vulnerable, whole-hearted living.
And, she’s a great storyteller.
I loved this book as much as I did the others. It’s a quick-reading, inspiring look at the four practices for discovering and living from that deep sense of true belonging. If you enjoy Brené and her work, I think you’ll enjoy the book as much as I did. (Get a copy .)
I’m excited to take a quick look at some of my favorite Big Ideas so let’s jump straight in!
