This past Sunday I wrapped up my Daring Way™ training with Brené Brown deep in the heart of Texas. During my week away I lit some fires, fanned some flames, entered arenas, laid down some heavy-ass armour, and dared to show up, be seen, and live brave.™
:: Oh, and I apparently ate some funky lemons that turned my insides upside down. So when life hands me lemons ….. I need to stay away. Far, far, away. ::
So what IS The Daring Way™ exactly? Good question. And here’s the answer directly from her website:
The Daring Way™ is a training and certification program for helping professionals who want to facilitate Brené Brown’s work on vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We are a community of wholehearted practitioners who believe in the power of owning our stories, and who recognize that vulnerability is our most accurate measure of courage.
BAM. That’s the kind of shit that gets me excited.
Again, good question.
Well, what if I told you that I knew there was ONE BIG THING keeping you from living your dream. One big, fat, hairy and scary thing that keeps you living small and likely more scared than you realize.
And no, it’s not the monster under your bed.
I mean, I don’t know that this is 100% true for you (because I’m not you), but odds are this sucker has got it’s claws in you.
What would you say it is?
Well, here’s a hint. This clip from Good Will Hunting best describes the journey that you go through when you dare to show up, be seen, and live brave.™
I love this scene because I think it exemplifies the constant, daily struggle we face between our hearts and our heads. And it’s precisely why I love The Daring Way™ curriculum. It teaches you how to live more like Robin Williams, less like Matt Damon. Don’t get me wrong, they’re both great guys, but if you’re ready to lay down your perfectionist armour and learn how to live more fully from your heart (and less from your head), then keep an eye on this website because I’ll be announcing some Daring Way workshops soon so you too can get in on the wholehearted action.
Oh, and in these workshops, you’ll get the answer to the BIG question above too. But if you remember this movie, you’ll remember what really kept Matt Damon from pursuing Skylar. And it’s not because she wasn’t that smart, or that she was boring, and definitely not because she was ‘perfect’. Any guesses?
