Vulnerability and Courage Interview

Interview between Oprah and Brené Brown …

Oprah: What does it mean to dare greatly?
Brené: To me, it means the courage to be vulnerable. It means to show up and be seen. To ask for what you need. To talk about how you’re feeling. To have the hard conversations…
Oprah: and I think that vulnerability is the cornerstone of confidence. Because you have to allow yourself to take the risk to be open, to live as a wholehearted person. When you can do that, you recognize that you’re really just like everybody else, and that gives you the confidence to be yourself, which is all you really need in life, to be more of yourself.
Brené: That’s it. And you can’t get to courage without walking through vulnerability, period.
