In all my research’s two-hundred-thousand-plus pieces of data, I can’t find a single example of courage that didn’t require vulnerability. Can you, in your life? Can you think of one moment of courage that didn’t require risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure? I know the answer is no; I’ve asked too many people who say this—including special operations soldiers. No vulnerability, no courage. We have to show up and put ourselves out there.
