Respond to Fear with Love
April 12, 2019
We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.
-J.K. Rowling

Brené Brown, in her book, Dare to Lead, writes that “self-awareness and self-love matter. Who we are is how we lead. So often we think of courage as an inherent trait; however, it is less about who people are, and more about how they behave and show up in difficult situations. Fear is the emotion at the center of a list of problematic behaviors and culture issues…

“The true underlying obstacle to brave leadership is how we respond to fear. The real barrier to daring leadership is our armor – the thoughts, emotions and behaviors that we use to protect ourselves when we aren’t willing and able to rumble with vulnerability…Practicing self-compassion and having patience with ourselves is essential in this process…”
