Episode #090 - The Power of Worthiness & Vulnerability


“We’re not worthy! We’re not worthy!”

One of the most memorable comedy lines from Wayne’s World makes us laugh at the visual of Wayne and Garth bowing down to Alice Cooper.

But how many times do we quietly, to ourselves, declare that we’re not worthy of a person, job, opportunity or life path?

In prepping to watch Brene’ Brown’s new Netflix special, I went back and re-watched her TED Talk on vulnerability. In that talk, which you must go watch after this podcast located here, she talks about the concept of worthiness.

It’s as if my eyes saw a new color and I was reintroduced to the real me.

In this episode, I discuss the last 24 hours of my reawakening thanks to the amazing Brene’ Brown. Through the power of vulnerability and worthiness, I plan on leveraging this newfound energy and focus and I wanted to share it with you in hopes that you find the same power.
