Brené Brown: Why Your Critics Aren’t the Ones Who Count

Brené Brown: Why Your Critics Aren’t the Ones Who Count
How to deal with the critics and our own self-doubt.

There is nothing more frightening than the moment we expose our ideas to the world. Creatives experience this raw fear when acting on their inspiration or sharing their art. The fear of the critic can be so intense that we armour up and lose connection with others, and with our own inspiration.

“Not caring what people think,” says author and vulnerability researcher Brené Brown, “is its own kind of hustle.” Instead we must “reserve a seat” for the critics and our own self-doubt. “Tell them, I see you, I hear you, but I’m going to do this anyway.”

“Vulnerability is not about winning and losing, it’s about showing up and being seen.”

Here Brené Brown shows us how to deal with the critics and our own self-doubt by refusing to shut ourselves off.
