Why Vulnerability Is A Strength And Not A Weakness

So why is vulnerability a strength?  Well, in today’s world it seems like people are tired of others being guarded, and acting like everything is perfect.

No one is perfect, but we all try to pretend like we are. 

And we all know deep down inside that we’re trying our best to put on a show like we’re perfect.

In the business world, this type of “persona” is expected.

The whole show no-weakness, show no faults, admit to nothing type of game, is the way business has been run since the beginning.

But times are changing.  The more connected we are virtually, the less connected we are personally, emotionally, and spiritually.

And we’re craving things and people that are real.  

And being real means being vulnerable.

So then, why is vulnerability a strength? Because it shows that we’re human and not robots.

And in this episode, all of this is broken down with examples of where vulnerability can be used, what happens when you’re vulnerable, and why vulnerability is a true strength today.

The truth is…

We can let go of it being viewed as a weakness.

And you’ll learn why in this episode.

You’ll also see how some people know it’s power and use it to create and craft stories that aren’t true as well.

Those are the true douche canoes and master manipulators.

What’s funny about those people is that they’re generally the most guarded people, but they take one vulnerable piece of their lives and mold it into a story to connect with people and to manipulate them.

So if you truly want to understand why vulnerability is a strength and how to use it correctly, then listen to this episode.
