Daring Greatly

I had the pleasure of meeting Brene Brown at the Texas Conference for Women, where she promoted her newest book, Daring Greatly.  This title was inspired by a wonderful quote from Theodore Roosevelt:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”

Yes…busting through the fear of failure is true vulnerability…and is worth doing, no matter what the outcome.
