"A mind-blowing, life-changing read â ¦ gets to the heart of life"

Product Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

When we deny our stories, they define us.

When we own our stories, we get to write the ending.
 
Social scientist Brené Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability—the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome—is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall.
 
It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people—from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents—shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself, What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common? The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they’re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.
 
Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague. Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: We reckon with our emotions and get curious about what we’re feeling; we rumble with our stories until we get to a place of truth; and we live this process, every day, until it becomes a practice and creates nothing short of a revolution in our lives. Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness. It’s the process, Brown writes, that teaches us the most about who we are.

Amazing book - great compliment to the first two books. Indeed, if you have the courage to get into the arena, you will fall down. This is the guide to how to get up again. Bought a few copies for my friends. Am reading it again for the third time!

I normally never have the chance to pick up non-fiction books like this that focus on psychology or actual real concepts like bravery, but thanks to BookExpo America in 2015, I had the chance to read this highly anticipated read of mine. Ever since I entered high school, I have been really interested in psychology and the way that the human mind works and how we intake emotions and let them out. Brené Brown's new book was a real buzz book at BEA last year, with a huge media showcase where the stairs at the Javis Center were even covered with the cover of this book. The cover is pretty bland, a few colours in an ombré kind of showcase, but I didn't read this for some kind of signs of Young Adult fiction. This is a real book, the realest out of the real. This book is about leaping for chances, having courage, and showing that everyone undergoes anxiety from time to time, even adults who seem to show that they have succeeded in life, just like Brené has. She is such an intelligent writer and person, and seriously, Rising Strong was fabulous.

Each one of Brené's books, as she mentioned in this one, focuses on a different concept of the human mind. There is one about daring, one about imperfection (which I should take a look at, since I am a perfectionist) and this one rolls into strength, especially emotional and mental strength. Some authors prove their "points" or "theses" by simple research, which I adore, but sometimes it takes such a turn where it is strict info-dumping. Brené uses real-life situations that she or some people she knows have undergone. I love that. It proves that everyone has moments of rising strong and a fall.

"We've all fallen, and we have the skinned knees and bruised hearts to prove it.

Wonderful, yet difficult read. Dr. Brown really hits home with understanding why we feel the way we do, our emotional struggles and more importantly how to 'rumble' with them to 'rise strong'. Powerful stuff!

Great book - I am only on chapter 4 but this is not a repackaging of what Brene Brown has already given us, it is new material with new perspectives about living life wholeheartedly and recovering from the inevitable falls that come from being in the arena.
