The secret of good human connections is the courage to be vulnerable
In recent years I've noticed that those who are willing to be vulnerable, reap great rewards both personally and professionally. They take risks and fully commit to whatever it is they want to do. They are also less afraid of failure, accepting it as just another step toward their goals.
Being someone who was effectively paralyzed by my fear of failure for much of my life, it's been a great lesson - one that improv played a great role in teaching me. And today, there is actual research that proves the power of vulnerability.
Check out this EXCELLENT Tedx Talk by Brene' Brown. I found it to be truly inspiring, and a great note to start the New Year on.
