Brené Brown has inspired millions with her books and talks, and her insights into courage and self-love are more vital than ever during these challenging times. So, we’re taking a look at some of the best Brené Brown quotes to give you a boost of confidence and hope.
Brown, a Texas-based social researcher and storyteller, has spent years studying courage, vulnerability, shame and empathy. She’s written five bestselling books, including The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly and Dare to Lead, and her first TED Talk, “The Power of Vulnerability,” has racked up more than 40 million views.
Through her research and talks, Brown explores a quality she calls ‘Wholeheartedness,’ which she defines as “engaging with our lives from a place of worthiness.”
“When you get to a place where you understand that love and belonging, your worthiness, is a birthright and not something you have to earn, anything is possible,” Brown said in a 2012 interview with the TEDBlog. “Keep worthiness off the table. Your raise can be on the table, your promotion can be on the table, your title can be on the table, your grades can be on the table. But keep your worthiness for love and belonging off the table. And then ironically everything else just takes care of itself.”
