The Critic Matters Not to the Soul

Happy Day!Are you living the life you are supposed to live?  Are you being the person who is a joy to others by being a light unto yourself.

“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 blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”  Theodore Roosevelt

This quote hits into the heart of everything I know about vulnerability.  Brene Brown goes on to share why.

“It is about showing up and being seen.  If courage is a value you can not avoid the critic (inner or otherwise)”

“if you are not in the arena and also getting your ass kicked, I don’t need your feedback.”

Enjoy her talk on The Power of Vulnerability…
