Shame, understood as the fear of disconnection, is
the real driver of us all, explains researcher & great storyteller
Brené Brown

The one difference between people whol feel loved and successful and those who don’t are that the former feel worthy of it.

How do they do that? They have:

  • a sense of courage (meaning telling their own stories with their own hearts)
  • the compassion to be kind to themselves and then others
  • the connection as a result of authenticity (letting go of who they should be to start being who they were)

They believed that what made them vulnerable made them beautiful.
