When you can watch something that makes you laugh, gets you thinking, helps you understand, and touches you, you know its a winner!
In todays Motivational Monday I stumbled upon a great video with a great message that did just that. It made me laugh, made me think, and made me understand some things and I knew I wanted to share it with you too.
What’s interesting about it is it’s pretty hard core academic style research that leads to a very nonacademic conclusion and sums up something so simple yet profound it can change your life today!
A great concept she talks about in the video is “People being willing to let go of who they think they should be in order to be who they are…”.
We hear it all the time, “an attitude of gratitude creates success”. “Doing something that brings joy to your life practically guarantees success”. “Do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life…”
But what’s not talked about much is the vulnerability it takes to live your life that way and how what makes you vulnerable makes you beautiful…
You have a major impact on other people through your actions and words and the success you experience in your life is in direct proportion to that impact.
These are very simple concepts yet also very misunderstood. Toward the end of this entertaining video Brene Brown explains this very eloquently through her years of research and experience and shines a bright light of truth on what might change the results you get from your efforts for 2012 and the rest of your life!
The core of the message is this:
Let yourself be seen
Love with your whole heart
Practice gratitude and joy
Believe that “You ARE Enough”
Enjoy and pass it along to someone you know who may need to hear this in their life right now.
