In Rising Strong, you’ll learn about developing resilience by facing your fears, getting curious about your emotions, and embracing vulnerability.
Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness in our lives; it’s the process that teaches us the most about who we are.
Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome.
When we own our stories, we avoid being trapped as characters in stories someone else is telling.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; … who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.
Falling down is part of rising strong. Resilience is developed by learning from failure, embracing your emotions, and letting yourself be vulnerable until you succeed.
