DARING GREATLY by Brene Brown
I am delighted to be able to recommend to you this month an inspiring and, in my world, much anticipated book by Brene Brown!
This book is filled with ‘aha’ moments of understanding, when everything just slots into place!
Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead was first released on July 4th 2013 so it really is a hot off the press book and in my humble opinion, very deserving of all the high praise, accolades and ‘bestselling sensation’ claims around.
If you have checked out my You Tube channel you will perhaps be familiar with Brene Brown from her TED Talks about shame, guilt and vulnerability. Brene Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston and so her books and talks are based on years of quantitative and qualitative studies with people – real people, like you and me.
In Daring Greatly, Brown explains what ‘Daring Greatly’ means in our everyday lives, the difference between shame and guilt, and how these negatives emotions are used by so many of us in how we feel about ourselves, manage our relationships in love, how we parents and how really, our ultimate goal is to live wholeheartedly…which is only possible if we dare greatly and allow ourselves to be vulnerable to love and life.
This is a truly inspiring book that will transform the way you think and feel about yourself and how you manage your vulnerability with the people in your life. Brene’s style is easy to read, gripping and yet leaves you feeling challenged.

Happy reading and daring!
Back of the Book Blurb:
“Every time we are introduced to someone new, try to be creative or start a difficult conversation, we take a risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable.
Most of us try to fight those feelings – we strive to appear perfect. But in a powerful new vision Dr Brene Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability, and dispels the widely accepted myth that it’s a weakness. She argues that vulnerability is in fact a strength, and when we shut ourselves off from revealing our true selves we grow distanced from the things that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.
Daring Greatly is the culmination of twelve years of ground breaking social research across the home, relationships, work and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous; to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees.
This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.”
