"Vulnerability is not knowing victory or defeat, it’s understanding the necessity of both; it’s engaging. It’s being all in".
How do we step towards vulnerability?
I think the first thing we have to do is figure out what’s keeping us out of the arena. What’s the fear?
Where and why do we want to be braver? Then we have to figure out how we’re currently protecting ourselves from vulnerability.
What is our armor? Perfectionism? Intellectualizing? Cynicism? Numbing? Control?
It’s not an easy walk into that arena, but it’s where we come alive.
