The Daring Way™
Show Up, Be Seen, Live Brave™
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena…. who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly…. – Theodore Roosevelt
How would you like to live your life and be all in?
You can capture the love, belonging, and joy that is your birthright. You can dare to live greatly, taking on challenges that run a mighty spectrum from launching a business or starting a family. You can dare to initiate a difficult conversation with a challenging family member or work colleague with an open mind and heart. You can live The Daring Way™.
It requires a willingness to live “in the arena” – to show up and be seen, with no guarantee of outcome. To be vulnerable.
“Vulnerability is not weakness,” writes Brené Brown, “and the uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure we face every day are not optional. Our only choice is a question of engagement. Our willingness to own and engage with our vulnerability determines the depth of our courage and the clarity of our purpose; the level to which we protect ourselves from being vulnerable is a measure of fear and disconnection.
“When we spend our lives waiting until we’re perfect or bulletproof before we walk into the arena,” she continues, “we ultimately sacrifice relationships and opportunities that may not be recoverable, we squander our precious time, and we turn our backs on our gifts, those unique contributions that only we can make.”
We must dare to show up and let ourselves be seen. This is a course about what gets in the way of doing just that.
Here are the discoveries that you can make in The Daring Way™ weekend:
- What drives your fear of being vulnerable
- The ways you protect yourself from being vulnerable
- How the “never enough” problem of scarcity influences your self-worth
- The attributes of empathy
- The importance of extending compassion to yourself and others
- What shame is and what it isn’t
- Ways to move away from shame, comparison, and disengagement and towards courage, compassion, and connection
- The one thing that distinguishes people who experience love and belonging from those who do not
- Ten Guideposts for Whole-Hearted Living
It’s not the critic who counts.
“Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough. It’s about going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid but that doesn’t change the fact that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging.” – Brené Brown
Join me along with others – like you – who are sick of feeling afraid. You are braver than you realize, and it’s possible to make the lasting changes necessary to show up in the arena of your life!
