I’ve been following Brene a little more lately as she now has a feature on Netflix.

I actually just started following her on Instagram. I’ll be honest, I knew who Brené Brown was, came across a few of her inspirational quotes before but never really listened to her until Instagram stories and Facebook videos. She’s the bomb. For real!

Brené Brown quotes on vulnerability

Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
In Brené’s bestselling book Daring Greatly, she talks about how important it is to be vulnerable in every aspect of our life. Too often, we protect our hearts and self confidence from others in fear of them being hurt and squashed by others but that won’t serve you well at all.
Vulnerability is a scary thing for many of us to show. We feel weak and overexposed but the fact of the matter is, you’re not. It’s all about stepping into your greatness with bravery and courage and showing people who you really are, not who you think they want to see.
What does Brené Brown say about vulnerability?
Pretending to be someone else or trying to be someone else to fit into a situation is just bad business. You are trying to fit into a place where you don’t belong. Fitting in doesn’t serve us at all.
Brené Brown reminds us of the power of vulnerability and to learn to just open up to be ourselves.
Sometimes reading inspirational quotes remind us of some things we already know: be yourself, be true to you, don’t pretend to be someone you’re not and all those other good quotes.
In my opinion Brené Brown quotes are truly profound and totally make you stop and think about life and the way you are showing up in your life. Jen Sincero quotes are also really in your face and empowering!
