Daring Greatly Brene Brown - A 30-Minute Summary: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
Daring Greatly Brene Brown - A 30-Minute Summary: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead | Instaread Summaries
PLEASE NOTE: This is a "summary" of the book and NOT the original book. Daring Greatly by Brene Brown - A 30-minute Summary & AnalysisInside this Instaread Summary: - Overview of the entire book- Introduction to the important people in the book- Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book- Key Takeaways of the book- A Reader's PerspectivePreview of this summary: What It Means to Dare GreatlyThe author has always been inspired by Theodore Roosevelt's speech, "Citizenship in a Republic." The speech spoke of vulnerability and of trying, even if success is not guaranteed. To the author, this speech is about the reward of trying, not about winning or losing. It is for this reason that the author chose the phrase "Daring Greatly" for the title of this book.Introduction: My Adventures in the ArenaThe author is a social worker who specializes in research. She has previously done extensive research and writing on the topics of shame and living a Wholehearted life, a life filled with courage, engagement, and purpose. In doing this research, the author recognized problems in her own life that prevented her from following her own advice. One of these problems was a fear of being vulnerable. It reached a critical point in 2010 when the author was asked to speak at TEDxHouston, an independently organized event modeled after TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design), a nonprofit organization devoted to "Ideas Worth Spreading." The author gave a speech in which she opened up about her personal life and allowed the audience to interact freely with her. She was surprised by the response she received at the event, and later when her speech was placed on the main TED website. This led to the author making many speeches about vulnerability, and those speeches became this book...

Listened to my first Brene Brown title. I did not expect to be so blown away. I highly encourage everyone to try this title. The biggest takeaway is that without vulnerability there is no growth.

annahenke She‘s so brilliant. It‘s like groundbreaking heart truths you‘ve always known, just spelled out in a way you never realized you understood. 2w

Look at me finishing a book only a few days into the new year. This book taught me a lot about how my perfectionist tendencies can be holding me back as a leader. I‘m not sure how to tackle it outside of being willing to admit mistakes and try to engage my teammates in the process more but I know I need to try.

Curiouser_and_curiouser I began reading this last year but I didn't get to finish it before I had to return it to the library. Thanks for your post, a reminder for me to revisit this book 🙂 2w

I have been an anxiety mess lately, so I decided to re-listen to a Brene Brown book. Her research makes so much sense, and listening to her narrating her own audiobooks is like listening to an old friend tell their stories. I got just as much out of it this time around as last time. Probably one of my favorite books of all time

Listened to this while clearing off and reorganizing my room. Especially like her parenting advice re being vulnerable with your kids;shame vs guilt; belonging vs fitting in. I also took to heart her advice via Toni Morrison to greet our kids with love on our faces when they come in a room and resist criticizing/nagging.

I loved this listen. Especially the chapters on parenting. I deeply felt the lessons in this one: steering away from scarcity and shame and focusing on self-compassion and worthiness. I needed a reminder that I should allow myself to be seen. She takes real experiences and her research and shows you why. Some wholehearted and funny moments are involved too.

Brene Brown is a gift to the world. Her insights born of research shed healing light on shame, its origins, and its effects. She reveals the power of vulnerability and outlines the mechanics of trust. All truth is God‘s truth. And truth really does set us free. Already I am changed. She‘s teaching me to to be courageously (not indiscriminately) vulnerable. This is a book so rich with healing truth, I‘ll listen again. Don‘t want to miss a word!

Listening to this audiobook. So far it's a gamechanger for me and I'm still early on in the book. Especially the parts on scarcity (I'm not enough, there's not enough time, etc.), and the differences between vulnerability with boundaries, attention seeking, and weakness...

I keep hearing about this book and how it‘s a must read. My awesome gym (owned by an amazing woman) started a little library and I was so excited for this to be my first read. Break out the highlighters, pens and journals because this book is filled with information on living a better and healthier life.

If we want to be able to move through the difficult disappointments, the hurt feelings, and the heartbreaks that are inevitable in a fully lived life, we can't equate defeat with being unworthy of love, belonging and joy. If we do, we'll never show up and try again.

quote
masyraaf

Until we can receive with an open heart, we are never really giving with an open heart. When we attach judgement to receiving help, we knowingly or unknowingly attach judgement to giving help.

quote
masyraaf

The willingness to show up changes us. It makes us a little braver each time.

quote
masyraaf

To foreclose on our emotional life out of a fear that the costs will be too high is to walk away from the very thing that gives purpose and meaning to living.

I recently watched Brown‘s Netflix special which inspired me to pick up Daring Greatly. I do believe in putting your creative self out there. I got in the arena and wrote a book and made a documentary film because I believed in telling the Chasing Portraits story. But reading Brown is helpful for seeing my shortcomings (I‘m super hard on myself and need to learn a better way around shame.).

“We live in a world where most people still subscribe to the belief that shame is a good tool for keeping people in line. Not only is this wrong, but it‘s dangerous. Shame is highly correlated with addiction, violence, aggression, depression, eating disorders, and bullying.”

I feel like this is a book I should read every year to keep it fresh in my mind. Her advice applies to so many pieces of life: marriage, parenting, work, friendship.. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So here are my very different picks for this go round. One is nonfiction and the other is poetry. Also interested in possible doing Aurora Rising if either of you like that choice. Also, the sequel to this round will be out by the time we are done with this on. If you guys are up for that, I will just purchase it. #lmpbc @Schlinkles @bookandcat

bookandcat I love Brene Brown! I do have the audio for daring greatly but I haven't read it yet. Aurora Rising sounds fun too. I also haven't heard of that poetry book before but it sounds interesting. So basically I'm fine with any! 8mo
Schlinkles I‘m good with any of these. I‘ll have some choices for you guys in the next week or so. I was out of town for BEA this past week so now I‘m playing catch up at work. 8mo

Ashley_Nicoletto @KatieB I‘ve read a few of them, but not all. I started by downloading The Power of Vulnerability on audiobook. It‘s based on her Ted talk and really gave me an idea of what she was all about. It was fantastic and she narrates it. I also really enjoyed Braving the Wilderness. 8mo

The discussion on the “culture of scarcity” in the book and the feeling of “never being ______ enough” (skinny, rich, smart, etc....) inspired me to stitch up this quick little piece and send it off to my daughter in college. It will be going in the mail today. I‘m thinking I should make one for my office as well.

When I saw this quote, it resonated with me. I have worn my fatigue as a badge of honor rather than recognize it as a call for self-care. I laughed when I told friends that tired was just my new normal. I think I‘ll work to redefine brave and strong to mean taking care of myself well & kindly. Today: yoga, tea with honey, and a book before bed.

Also I should probably bump Brene Brown up to the top of my tbr.

Nute This is so true. I‘m recalling a conversation with my mother where we were trying to out-talk each other about which one of us averaged the least amount of sleep per day while we have been caring for my father who has been ill. The less sleep the more you must be doing as a caregiver. Weird, right? 12mo
whatsthEStorey @Nute it is, but I‘ve done the exact same thing when caring for my mother in law, as though my exhaustion proved my love. And I hear similar conversations among my friends and coworkers. I have yet to hear men join in the discussion, though. It is definitely a societal thing! 12mo

I love Brene. I am getting my masters in social work, and she is a licensed clinical social worker, so we think kind of similarly about things. Brene is a researcher, and she researches things that maybe we don't think about as needing more research. This book is all about needing to be more vulnerable, and how important vulnerability is for our relationships and for our success. I listened to this on #audiobook via #scribd

keithmalek I haven't read the books or seen the films, and I don't want to. In fact, about a week ago, I posted some exerpts on here from an essay that Chuck Klosterman wrote in his book X, in which he writes about how he knows nothing about Harry Potter as well.
