The Power of Vulnerability - Brené Brown | Personal Growth

The Power of Vulnerability - Brené Brown | Personal Growth | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

"Too often we lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love.”


Dr. Brené Brown has interviewed hundreds of people as part of an ongoing study of vulnerability.

“The research shows that we try to ward disappointment with a shield of cynicism, disarm shame by numbing ourselves against joy, and circumvent grief by shutting off our willingness to love,” explains Dr. Brown.

“When we become aware of these patterns, she teaches, we begin to become conscious of how much we sacrifice in the name of self-defense—and how much richer our lives become when we open ourselves to vulnerability."

How much of our lives are impacted by our beliefs? "All beliefs are limiting...You are what you believe you are (for you) and anything else is absolutely not true (not possible). Your beliefs about people and life also create boxes; what’s outside the boxes literally does not exist for you...It is more important to live as the creator of your life (as the sculptor) rather than as any specific creation." - Morty Lefkoe

The Tapping Solution for Health | Personal Growth

The Tapping Solution for Health | Personal Growth | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or Tapping is "a healing modality that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology."


Cheryl Richardson on the free Tapping World Summit that begins on Monday, February 24, 2014. "While flying with my husband, Michael, we hit rough weather and I began to panic. Because he was trained in the tapping technique early on, Michael knew how to quickly turn my panic into peace. Within fifteen minutes I was riding the rough air without fear.  None. And I've continued to fly with ease ever since. That's when I decided to learn tapping myself. I've used it with family, friends, and workshop participants and it's the easiest, quickest method I've seen for dealing with all kinds of issues...like physical pain, weight loss, anxiety, healing your body, overcoming emotional obstacles, and much more."

"My childhood was very difficult. My dad died in my arms when I was 14 and my mother was physically and emotionally abusive. We were poor, dysfunctional and quite unhappy. Maybe it was my own struggles that led me to know when I was 12 that what I wanted to do in life was to help other people suffer less and laugh more.” Lindsay Kenny
