Living Brave: Brené Brown and Oprah

Brené Brown catches up with Oprah to discuss living life with bravery, courage, and truth in this episode of Living Brave. In this video, Oprah discusses the clarity of intention and how it helps us to live a more fearless life. She also makes time to discuss what it takes to lead a brave life while “disappointing” others and creating a kitchen cabinet of resourceful people who can serve as our truth-tellers.

In particular, Oprah mentions:

“We cannot live a brave life without disappointing some people. However, the people who are rooting for our rise will not be disappointed. The only people who are disappointed are the ones who have their own agenda.”

This very statement closely resonates with one of our posts from back in May of 2015 entitled, Trust Yourself…Do What Matters! Lastly, Brené Brown leaves us with a few wise words of her own, “If you’re brave enough often enough, you will fall.” Let’s learn to embrace our falls and move on with more courage, love, and mindfulness especially as we head into a new year. Happy 2016!!!

Zeitgeist Minds Presents: Bryan Stevenson

I initially came across this video not too long after it was posted on YouTube’s Zeitgeist Minds channel back in October of 2015. I’ve been meaning to post this video since then but I just couldn’t make the time to do so due to the intensity of my schedule. Thankfully, I was recently able to make some time to revisit this clip and extract all of the meaningful bits of insight and wisdom shared by the very inspiring, Bryan Stevenson.

In this video, Bryan discusses 4 things we can do to change the world and create better relationships, more justice, more compassion, and less poverty. Hope you enjoy!

1. Proximity (2:53)

We can’t be responsible influencers until we understand the importance of getting proximate to the problems in our world. Proximity teaches us things that we cannot learn from a distance. When we get proximate to problems we see things and hear nuances and details that we cannot see from a distance. In order to solve problems and create breakthroughs, we must get very close and inside of the problems that we intend to solve. Proximity is essential if we want to change the world.

2. Change The Narrative (10:05)

Anger and fear as a narrative is the cause of many human rights issues such as inequality, genocide, and oppression just to name a few. The narrative of anger and fear must change. We need truth and reconciliation. Changing the narrative is important if we want to change the world.

3. Protect Our Hopefulness (15:45)

Injustice prevails where hopelessness persists. Hopelessness is the enemy of justice. As long as we continue to think that we cannot do anything, we will not make any progress. It’s important that we protect our hopefulness. Increasing our hope is essential to changing our world.

4. Do Uncomfortable Things (22:09)

Justice cannot be created through only doing what is comfortable and convenient. We have to do uncomfortable things. We will not succeed until we do what’s uncomfortable. It is the uncomfortable things that we do in service of justice that ultimately honor us as a human race and community of people who are committed to changing the world.

Conversations on Leadership

Here’s an insightful conversation on leadership as Director General of the United States Foreign Service, Arnold Chacón talks with U.S. Ambassador, Kristie Kenney about leadership getting things done, learning how to make a difference, and creating a mindful balance when it comes to developing ourselves as leaders.

When asked what qualities Kristie looks for when building and developing her teams she replies:

“I look for a range of qualities. I look for people who are innovative. I look for people who are ready to step up and make a difference. I look for people who can work well with others and also possess good interpersonal skills. However, above all…the quality that I prize the most are people who are passionate about their work.”

This was definitely a great listen. We really enjoyed this one!
