Daring Greatly How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live Love Parent and Lead eBook é Hardcover Ê johnscyclingdiary ✓ ❰Reading❯ ➸ Daring Greatly How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the WayResearcher and thought leader Dr Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly to embrace vulnerability and imperfection to live wholeheartedly and to courageously engage in our lives “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 For me and for many of us our first waking thought of the day is I didn't get enough sleep The next one is I don't have enough time Whether true or not that thought of not enough occurs to us automatically before we even think to uestion or examine it We spend most of the hours and the days of our lives hearing explaining complaining or worrying about what we don't have enough of Before we even sit up in bed before our feet touch the floor we're already inadeuate already behind already losing already lacking something And by the time we go to bed at night our minds are racing with a litany of what we didn't get or didn't get done that day We go to sleep burdened by those thoughts and wake up to that reverie of lack This internal condition of scarcity this mind set of scarcity lives at the very heart of our jealousies our greed our prejudice and our arguments with life

Drug overdoses In fact people die from prescription drug overdoses than from heroin cocaine and methamphetamine drug use combined Even alarming is the estimate that less than 5 percent of those who died from prescription drug overdoses obtained their drugs from the folks we normally think of as street corner drug dealers The dealers today are likely to be parents relatives friends and physicians Clearly there’s a problem cGroup A “I make a pot of coffee after I tuck in my kids so I can take care of all the e mails between ten PM and midnight If there are too many I wake up at four AM and start over again I don’t like getting to work with any unanswered e mail in my in box I’m exhausted but they’re answered”Group B “I’ve simply stopped sending unnecessary e mails and asked my friends and colleagues to do the same I’ve also started setting the expectation that it might take me a few days to respond If it’s important call me Don’t text or e mail Call Better yet stop by my office”Group A “I use red lights grocery lines and elevator rides to stay on top of my calls I even sleep with my phone in case someone calls or I remember something in the middle of the night One time I called my assistant at four AM because I remembered that we needed to add something to a motion that we were preparing I was surprised that she answered but then she reminded me that I had told her to keep her phone on her nightstand I’ll rest and let off steam when we’re done Work hard Play hard That’s my motto And it doesn’t take much to play hard when you haven’t slept in a while”Group B “My boss my friends and my family know that I don’t take calls before nine AM or after nine PM If the phone rings after or before those times it’s either a wrong number or an emergency—a real emergency not a work issue” с“Yes I know vulnerability I know it well It’s an exuisite emotion” cLike many of the folks drawn to social work I liked the idea of fixing people and systems cI had realized that social work wasn’t about fixing It was and is all about contextualizing and“leaning in” Social work is all about leaning into the discomfort of ambiguity and uncertainty andholding open an empathic space so people can find their own way In a word—messyAs I struggled to figure out how I could ever make a career in social work actually work I was riveted by a statement from one of my research professors “If you can’t measure it it doesn’t exist”He explained that unlike our other classes in the program research was all about prediction andcontrol I was smitten You mean that rather than leaning and holding I could spend my career predicting and controlling?
