Wauw, I just watched Brené Brown Netflix special and what a powerful and beautiful woman is Brené. Here message is so strong, it resonates through my whole body.
Nowadays, more and more people are holding up a mask. Don’t really show who they are, because of the online criticism and the easy ways to fast success and money (which is a fable, it always requires years of hard work). We hide behind our mask playing safe instead of create and innovate. We need to actively change our culture. We need more trust, safe environments to play, allow failure to happen, keep each other responsible and focus on growth. We need to be vulnerable.
This is what I loved about being a manager. I was on a mission to create the culture where people can innovate and be creative. Where teamwork stands before sole success. Where people are kept responsible for their mistakes, but are tackled as a team. One your own you’re a fast sprinter, but with a team you can finish a marathon.
Here are some awesome quotes from Brené’s Netflix special. Let them resonate, read them every time you need it. Live by vulnerability and have a great awesome life. Be yourself, be connected, be epic!
Today I will choose courage over comfort. I can’t make any promises for tomorrow, but today I will choose to be brave.
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 errs, who comes short again and again…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.
Vulnerability is not about losing, it is about showing up when you can’t control the outcome.
If you are not in the arena, getting your a** kicked and rejected, I am not interested in your feedback about my work.
When you are grateful for what you have, I understand that you understand the magnitude of what I’ve lost.
I don’t know that I’m gonna nail this, but I’m gonna try ‘cause what I’m sure as hell not gonna do is stay quiet.
