Great presentation! Bravo Brené!! I love this:
“If you are not in the arena getting your ass kicked on occasion because you were being brave, I am not interested in or open to your opinion about my work.”
“There are millions of cheap seats in the arena. . . don’t pull that stuff from the cheap seats close to your heart. . . you gotta step over it and keep going.”
“You can’t take criticism and feedback from people who aren’t being brave with their lives. It will crush you. . . You have to be really specific about people whose opinions of you matter. It’s not that you don’t give a shit what anyone thinks. Just don’t give a shit what some people think. And then really solicit feedback from the people who do give you good feedback. . . I’ll tell you who should make the list: people who love you not DESPITE your imperfection and vulnerability but BECAUSE of your imperfection and vulnerability.”
Stay strong, joy-based friends! The world needs your light! You got this!
