Description :  <b><b>The #1&#xa0;<i>New York Times</i>&#xa0;bestseller.&#xa0;</b>1 million copies sold!<br /><br />From thought leader Brené Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.</b><br />&#xa0;<br /> <i>“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 worst, if he fails, at least fails while <b>daring greatly.</b>”—</i>Theodore Roosevelt<br /><br />Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Brené Brown&#xa0;PhD, LMSW, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.<br /><br />Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, <i>and</i> the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: “When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.”<br /><br /> <i>Daring Greatly</i> is not about winning or losing. It’s about courage. In a world where “never enough” dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It’s even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there’s a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena—whether it’s a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. <i>Daring Greatly</i> is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

Description :  <b><b>#1&#xa0;<i>NEW YORK TIMES</i>&#xa0;BESTSELLER • When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write the ending.</b> <br /></b><br /> 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.<br /><br /> It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in <i>Rising Strong</i>. 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, <i>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?</i> The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they’re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.<br /><br /> 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 <i>reckon </i>with our emotions and get curious about what we’re feeling; we <i>rumble </i>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 <i>revolution</i> 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.<br /><br /><b>ONE OF <i>GREATER GOOD</i>’S FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR<br /><br />Praise for <i>Rising Strong</i></b><br /><br />“[Brené Brown’s] research and work have given us a new vocabulary, a way to talk with each other about the ideas and feelings and fears we’ve all had but haven’t quite known how to articulate. . . . Brené empowers us each to be a little more courageous.”<b><i>—The Huffington Post</i></b><br /><br /> “With a fresh perspective that marries research and humor, Brown offers compassion while delivering thought-provoking ideas about relationships—with others and with oneself.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i></b>

3 I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn't)

Author : Brené Brown
Genre :  Self-Improvement  Books  Health, Mind & Body  Psychology 
Price :  $13.99
Release Date :  2007-02-01
Description :  <b>Researcher, thought leader, and <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Brené Brown offers a liberating study on the importance of our imperfections—both to our relationships and to our own sense of self<br /><br /></b>The quest for perfection is exhausting and unrelenting. There is a constant barrage of social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. Everywhere we turn, there are messages that tell us who, what and how we’re supposed to be. So, we learn to hide our struggles and protect ourselves from shame, judgment, criticism and blame by seeking safety in pretending and perfection. <br /><br />Dr. Brené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, is the leading authority on the power of vulnerability, and has inspired thousands through her top-selling books <i>Daring Greatly</i>, <i>Rising Strong</i>, and&#xa0;<i>The Gifts of Imperfection</i>, her wildly popular TEDx talks, and a PBS special. Based on seven years of her ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, <i>I Thought It Was Just Me</i> shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we’re all in this together. <br /><br />Dr. Brown writes, “We need our lives back. It’s time to reclaim the gifts of imperfection—the courage to be real, the compassion we need to love ourselves and others, and the connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life. These are the gifts that bring love, laughter, gratitude, empathy and joy into our lives.”<br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

4 Braving the Wilderness

Release Date :  2017-09-12
Description :  <b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • A timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of&#xa0;<i>Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, </i>and <i>The Gifts of Imperfection</i></b><br /><b><br />HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK<br /></b>&#xa0;<br />“True belonging doesn’t require us to <i>change</i> who we are. It requires us to <i>be</i> who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In <i>Braving the Wilderness,</i> Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.<br /><br /> Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, “True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that’s rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it’s easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it’s a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It’s a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.” Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, “The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it’s the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.”

Description :  New York Times best-selling author and professor Brené Brown offers a powerful and inspiring book that explores how to cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to embrace your imperfections and to recognize that you are enough.<br /><br />Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself? In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brené Brown, PhD, a leading expert on shame, authenticity and belonging, shares what she's learned from a decade of research on the power of Wholehearted Living--a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness. In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough, and to go to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.

Release Date :  2014-11-11
Description :  <b>FOREWORD BY BRENE BROWN and POSTSCRIPT FROM BRAIN PICKINGS CREATOR MARIA POPOVA<br /><br /></b>Rock star, crowdfunding pioneer, and TED speaker Amanda Palmer knows all about asking. Performing as a living statue in a wedding dress, she wordlessly asked thousands of passersby for their dollars. When she became a singer, songwriter, and musician, she was not afraid to ask her audience to support her as she surfed the crowd (and slept on their couches while touring). And when she left her record label to strike out on her own, she asked her fans to support her in making an album, leading to the world's most successful music Kickstarter.<br /><br />Even while Amanda is both celebrated and attacked for her fearlessness in asking for help, she finds that there are important things she cannot ask for-as a musician, as a friend, and as a wife. She learns that she isn't alone in this, that so many people are afraid to ask for help, and it paralyzes their lives and relationships. In this groundbreaking book, she explores these barriers in her own life and in the lives of those around her, and discovers the emotional, philosophical, and practical aspects of THE ART OF ASKING.<br /><br />Part manifesto, part revelation, this is the story of an artist struggling with the new rules of exchange in the twenty-first century, both on and off the Internet. THE ART OF ASKING will inspire readers to rethink their own ideas about asking, giving, art, and love.

Description :  Brené Brown, la investigadora que se ha convertido en todo un fenómeno cultural en EE.UU., reivindica la vulnerabilidad como elemento indispensable para conocer la felicidad, la creatividad y la conexión con los demás. Sin embargo, mostrarnos tal y como somos no siempre es fácil: requiere estar dispuesto a fracasar. ¿Cómo superar la desesperación y la vergüenza que a menudo conlleva el fracaso? ¿Cómo levantarse de una dura caída no solo entero sino más completo y feliz?<br /> En su nuevo trabajo, Brené Brown examina el complejo viaje que requiere trascender las catástrofes de la vida con valor y resiliencia, ya sea el final de una relación o un colapso profesional. Con un estilo vibrante y accesible que armoniza la ciencia con la narración, la autora examina las cualidades, patrones emocionales y hábitos mentales que permiten a las personas transformar el desastre en coraje, generosidad y sentido de la propia valía, un camino que pasa por conectar con el miedo y el dolor. Porque todo fracaso tiene consecuencias emocionales. Pero solo durante el proceso de volver a ponernos en pie descubrimos la verdad sobre nuestra creatividad, sensación de pertenencia y capacidad de ser amados.

Description :  Nuevas relaciones, entrevistas laborales, exámenes, procesos creativos, nuevos entornos profesionales...

Una forma más realista e infinitamente más eficaz de perseguir los objetivos vitales, que induce al lector a dejar atrás el "¿qué dirán?" para empezar a arriesgarse a lo grande.

12 A coragem de ser imperfeito

Author : Brené Brown
Genre :  Self-Improvement  Books  Health, Mind & Body 
Price :  $6.99
Release Date :  2013-09-09
Description :  Viver é experimentar incertezas, riscos e se expor emocionalmente. Mas isso não precisa ser ruim. Como mostra Brené Brown, a vulnerabilidade não é uma medida de fraqueza, mas a melhor definição de coragem.<br /><br />Quando fugimos de emoções como medo, mágoa e decepção, também nos fechamos para o amor, a aceitação e a criatividade. Por isso, as pessoas que se defendem a todo custo do erro e do fracasso acabam se frustrando e se distanciando das experiências marcantes que dão significado à vida.<br /><br />Por outro lado, as que se expõem e se abrem para coisas novas são mais autênticas e realizadas, ainda que se tornem alvo de críticas e de inveja. É preciso lidar com os dois lados da moeda para se ter uma vida plena.<br /><br />Em sua pesquisa pioneira sobre vulnerabilidade, Brené Brown concluiu que fazemos uso de um verdadeiro arsenal contra a vergonha de nos expor e a sensação de não sermos bons o bastante, e que existem estratégias eficazes para serem usadas nesse "desarmamento".<br /><br />Nesse livro, ela apresenta suas descobertas e estratégias bem-sucedidas, toca em feridas delicadas e provoca grandes insights, desafiando-nos a mudar a maneira como vivemos e nos relacionamos.

13 Dare to Lead

Author : Brené Brown
Genre :  Management & Leadership  Books  Business & Personal Finance  Health, Mind & Body  Psychology  Self-Improvement 
Release Date :  2018-10-16
Description :  <b>In her #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestsellers, Brené Brown has taught us what it means to dare greatly, rise strong, and brave the wilderness. Now, based on new research conducted with leaders, change makers, and culture shifters, she’s showing us how to put those ideas into practice so we can step up and lead.</b><br /><br /> Leadership is not about titles, status, and power over people. Leaders are those who hold themselves accountable for recognizing the potential in people and ideas and for developing that potential. This is a book for everyone who is ready to choose courage over comfort, make a difference, and lead.<br /><br /> When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it, and we work to align authority and accountability. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into the vulnerability that’s necessary to do good work.<br /><br />But daring leadership in a culture that’s defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires us to build courage skills that are uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders while at the same time scrambling to figure out what we offer that machines can’t do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.<br /><br />Brené Brown spent the past two decades researching the emotions that give meaning to our lives. Over the past seven years, she’s found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies are asking the same questions: How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders? And how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?<br /><br /><i>Dare to Lead </i>answers these questions and gives us actionable strategies and real examples from her new research-based courage-building program.&#xa0;<br /><br />Brown writes, “One of the most important findings of my career is that courage can be taught, developed, and measured. Courage is a collection of four skill sets supported by twenty-eight behaviors. All it requires is a commitment to doing bold work, having tough conversations, and showing up with our whole hearts. Easy? No. Choosing courage over comfort is <i>not</i> easy. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and work. It’s why we’re here.”

Release Date :  2016-02-23
Description :  Brené Brown beschrijft in haar boek wat het betekent om je kwetsbaar op te stellen in een wereld die gericht is op perfectionisme en het nemen van risico’s zonder dat succes gegarandeerd is. Of het nu om werk, relaties of opvoeding gaat: het is eng en moeilijk om je kwetsbaar op te stellen, maar het is nog veel moeilijker om het niet te doen en jezelf af te blijven vragen: wat als ik het wel had geprobeerd? <br /><br /> We verwachten van onszelf en van anderen dat we elke dag de schijn ophouden om anderen te laten zien hoe goed we alles voor elkaar hebben. Kwetsbaarheid is een emotie waar bijna niemand zich prettig bij voelt. We associëren het met onzekerheid en risico’s. Toch zegt Brené Brown dat juist kwetsbaarheid de basis is van alle mooie dingen in het leven als liefde, vertrouwen en vreugde. <br /> Ze moedigt de lezer in De kracht van kwetsbaarheid aan om perfectionisme te laten varen, kwetsbaarheid en te omarmen en uitdagingen aan te gaan.

Aki tényleg megemészti azt, amit Brené Brown itt elmond, az meg fog változni, annak a kapcsolatai átalakulnak és másképpen fog részt venni a világban." - írja az előszóban Feldmár András.A világ egyik legsikeresebb életmód tanácsadójaként és szerzőjeként a szégyen és a sebezhetőség kultúráját évek óta kutató Brené Brown könyvében bárki találhat hasznos tanácsokat és meglepő következtetéseiből még azok is új dolgokat tanulhatnak, akik eddig azt hitték jól haladnak az önmegismerés rögös útján.

Description :  Brené Browns banebrytende bestselger handler om hvordan det å våge å være modig endrer livet vårt for alltid. Mot til å være oss selv, til å stå fram slik vi er, med sårbarhet og skavanker, til å tro på at vi er gode nok som vi er, til å tre inn i nye og usikre situasjoner. Når vi våger å leve helt og fullt, slippe kontrollen og strevet etter det perfekte, vil vi føle mer empati, tilhørighet og kjærlighet. Vi kommer vi til å endre oss når det gjelder måten vi lever, elsker og omgås familie, venner og kolleger på. Vi kommer til å være foreldre,&#xa0;kolleger og ledere&#xa0;på en annen måte.&#xa0;Vi befrir oss fra skam og blir gladere, helere og lykkeligere. Boka er basert på 12 års forskning på sårbarhet og et ønske om å se hva som gjør oss motstandsdyktige mot skam.&#xa0;<br /><br /> Forfatteren har et av de mest sette foredrag på TED.com med mer enn fem millioner klikk. Foredraget er oversatt til 38 språk, også norsk.&#xa0;Boka&#xa0;har hittil solgt 210 000 i USA.

Genre :  Self-Improvement  Books  Health, Mind & Body 
Price :  $7.99
Release Date :  2015-02-09
Description :  Το να είσαι ευάλωτος δεν είναι αδυναμία. Αντίθετα, στη ζωή μας βρισκόμαστε καθημερινά αντιμέτωποι με την αβεβαιότητα, το ρίσκο και τη συναισθηματική έκθεση, κάτι που βέβαια δεν το επιλέγουμε αλλά είναι αναπόφευκτο. Η μόνη μας επιλογή είναι να αποφασίσουμε πόσο θα ασχοληθούμε με αυτό. Όταν περνάμε τη ζωή μας περιμένοντας να γίνουμε τέλειοι ή αλεξίσφαιροι, τελικά καταλήγουμε να θυσιάζουμε σχέσεις και ευκαιρίες, συχνά ανεπανόρθωτα. Πρέπει να μπαίνουμε με θάρρος στην αρένα, όποια κι αν είναι αυτή (μια καινούργια σχέση, μια σημαντική συνάντηση, μια δημιουργική διαδικασία ή μια δύσκολη συζήτηση με την οικογένειά μας) και με προθυμία να ασχολούμαστε μ’ αυτή την καινούργια εμπειρία. Το να είσαι ευάλωτος σημαίνει να τολμάς.<br /><br /> Στο βιβλίο αυτό δίνονται απαντήσεις στα ακόλουθα ερωτήματα:<br /> • Τι είναι αυτό που μας κάνει να φοβόμαστε να αφήσουμε εκτεθειμένη την ευαίσθητη πλευρά μας;<br /> • Τι τίμημα πληρώνουμε, όταν κλεινόμαστε στον εαυτό μας και εγκαταλείπουμε τον αγώνα;<br /> • Πώς μπορούμε να αποδεχτούμε το γεγονός ότι είμαστε τρωτοί, ώστε να αλλάξουμε τον τρόπο με τον οποίο ζούμε, αγαπάμε, είμαστε γονείς;

21 Le pouvoir de la vulnérabilité

Author : Brené Brown & Catherine Vaudrey
Genre :  Self-Improvement  Books  Health, Mind & Body 
Price :  $15.99
Release Date :  2015-07-01
Description :  Nous avons en horreur la vulnérabilité. Nous voulons être parfaits, puissants, sûrs de nous. Nous croyons que la distance, la froideur, l'inaccessibilité et la maîtrise contribuent à notre prestige. Que nous serions mésestimés si nous venions à être trop ouverts. Nous adoptons l'anxiété en tant que style de vie, la productivité en tant que valeur essentielle, et le perfectionnisme en tant qu'idéal. Et si la vulnérabilité n'était pas une faiblesse, mais au contraire signe de force et de courage ? Car à trop vouloir être parfaits, nous avons peur de l'échec et éprouvons un sentiment d'insuffisance. Nous endossons notre armure avant de pénétrer dans l'arène de la vie, en sacrifiant des relations et des opportunités qui ne reviendront pas. Nous gaspillons un temps précieux en tournant le temps à nos dons merveilleux. Alors plutôt que de rester assis sur le banc de touche, et d'émettre sans cesse des jugements et des conseils, mieux vaut oser se découvrir et accepter d'être vulnérable. Vivre de manière entière, en troquant le culte du contrôle contre le lâcher-prise et l'ouverture émotionnelle. Oser être vulnérable, c'est cela le courage.

22 Glem hvad andre tænker

Author : Brené Brown
Genre :  Health, Mind & Body  Books  Psychology 
Price :  $19.99
Release Date :  2016-02-10
Description :  Bogens tema beskrives i indledningen med dette Roosevelt citat: <br /><br />”Det er ikke kritikeren, der gør en forskel; ikke manden, der påpeger, hvor den stærke mand snubler, eller hvor den, der gør gode gerninger, kunne have gjort dem bedre. Anerkendelsen tilhører manden, som faktisk er i arenaen, hvis ansigt skæmmes af støv, sved og blod; han, som kæmper tappert, som fejler, som kommer til kort igen og igen, for der findes ikke bestræbelser uden fejl og mangler; men han er den, som faktisk kæmper for at udføre gerningen, den, der kender til stor entusiasme, stor hengivelse, som bruger sig selv på en værdig sag, som i bedste tilfælde oplever den store bedrifts triumf og som i værste tilfælde, hvis han fejler, i det mindste fejler, mens han vover meget. . . .”<br /><br />Alle mennesker har problemer med sårbarhed og det ligger i tiden, at det er noget, det er bedst at undgå, men, som det fremgår af citatet, så lever man ikke fuldt og helt, før man kaster sig ud i det.<br /><br />Brown opstiller10 retningslinjer for et autentisk liv. F.eks.:<br />At give slip på, hvad andre tænker.<br />Opdyrke taknemmelighed <br />At give slip på knaphed/mangel, <br /><br />Hun gennemgår og afliver forskellige myter om sårbarhed: <br />”Sårbarhed er svaghed”. <br />”Vi kan klare os alene.” <br />”Tillid kommer før sårbarhed”<br /><br />Hun beskriver sammenhængen med skam og anviser metoder til at begrænse dens indflydelse. Angsten for latterliggørelse er den mest udbredte bremse på kreativitet. Skam stortrives gennem hemmeligholdelse og modvirkes af empati. Skam er forskelligt for mænd og kvinder og forstærkes af stereotype kønsrollemønstre. <br /><br />Hun gennemgår derudover de mange måder, hvorpå vi forsøger at værne os mod sårbarhed. Hun anviser nye veje til at rehumanisere uddannelse og arbejdesliv. Og vier et afsnit til forældrerollen.<br /><br />Bogen blev en bestseller i USA og er siden udgivelsen i september 2012 forblevet blandt de bedst sælgende bøger på Amazon.

Release Date :  2016-07-25
Description :  Wahre innere Stärke erwächst nicht aus Siegen, sondern aus Niederlagen: Gerade zu straucheln und hinzufallen, birgt die Chance für inneres Wachstum und weist uns den Weg zu Weisheit, Hoffnung und einem tieferen Lebenssinn.<br /><br />Die US-amerikanische Starpsychologin Brené Brown erforscht seit vielen Jahren die Gesetzmäßigkeiten innerer Stärke. Anschaulich und anhand vieler Beispiele beschreibt sie den Entwicklungsprozess, der uns in Krisenzeiten positiv formt: Wir lernen, mit Scham umzugehen. Uns trotz widriger Umstände als wertvoll zu empfinden. Gehen das Wagnis ein, uns in unserer Verletzlichkeit zu zeigen. Entwickeln den Mut, uns über die eigenen Grenzen hinauszuwagen und unser Leben aktiv zu gestalten – und sind schließlich stärker als je zuvor.

24 Dary niedoskonałości

Author : Brené Brown
Genre :  Health, Mind & Body  Books  Psychology 
Price :  $5.99
Release Date :  2016-08-10
Description :  „Dary niedoskonałości” Brené Brown to poradnik psychologiczny dla wszystkich tych, którzy mają problemy z perfekcjonizmem, a wskutek tego z zaniżoną samooceną. Aby wyzwolić się z kręgu fałszywych przekonań, że zawsze musimy być idealni i nie możemy popełniać błędów, autorka proponuje, by zaakceptować swoje braki i przywary jako część ludzkiej natury. Wtedy to przekonamy się, jakimi darami obdarzy nas niedoskonałość - odwagą, by pewniej i bez lęku podejmować ważne decyzje, współczuciem, by traktować lepiej siebie i innych, a także silniejszymi więzami z bliskimi, dzięki zrozumieniu, że każdy może się mylić. Niedoskonałość sprawi jednak przede wszystkim, że zaczniemy żyć Autentycznie - pełni radości i satysfakcji z tego, kim jesteśmy, i z tego, co nam się przytrafia.<br /><br /> Doktor Brené Brown jest badaczką, nauczycielem akademickim i autorką wielu książek. Pracuje na wydziale społecznym Uniwersytetu w Houston, gdzie przez ostatnich dziesięć lat badała zagadnienia związane z życiem Autentycznym, stawiając pytania typu: Jak autentycznie, całym sercem zaangażować się w nasze życie? Jak dbać o odwagę, współczucie, więzi z innymi, których potrzebujemy, a także pogodzić się z naszymi niedoskonałościami i uznać, że jesteśmy wystarczająco dobrzy i warci miłości, przynależności i radości.

Author : Brené Brown
Genre :  Self-Improvement  Books  Health, Mind & Body 
Price :  $12.99
Release Date :  2017-02-10
Description :  Le changement signifiant, porteur de sens, c'est un processus. Il peut être inconfortable et souvent risqué, en particulier quand il s'agit d'accepter nos imperfections, de cultiver l'authenticité et de regarder l'univers dans les yeux en disant : «Je suis à la hauteur.» Vivre sans réserve, c'est s'engager dans sa propre existence avec dignité. C'est cultiver le courage, la compassion, la connexion et pouvoir se lever l matin en pensant : «Peu importe ce qui sera fait aujourd'hui et ce qui ne le sera pas encore, je suis à la hauteur.» C'est aller au lit le soir en se disant : «Oui, je suis imparfait et vulnérable, et même parfois effrayé, mais cela ne change rien au fait que je suis également courageux, digne d'amour et d'appartenance.»

Description :  Qu'ont donc en commun... ces couples qui entretiennent une relation solide, ces parents qui tissent des liens profonds avec leurs enfants, ou encore, ces dirigeants qui inspirent la confiance ? La réponse est claire : ils reconnaissent le pouvoir des émotions et n'ont pas peur d'affronter l'adversité. Et comme vous et moi, ces personnes aussi peuvent connaître une période de chômage, perdre un être cher, faire face à un divorce... Mais elles se relèvent. Comment reprendre pied et surmonter les épreuves ? La démarche est toujours la même : prenez en compte vos émotions et intéressez-vous à vos sentiments ; remettez en question votre subjectivité pour parvenir à la vérité ; et pratiquez cette démarche au quotidien, jusqu'à ce qu'elle se transforme en habitude et aboutisse à une révolution personnelle. Grâce à des exercices mais aussi à de nombreux témoignages d'hommes et de femmes épanouis et qui parviennent à rebondir après la chute, vous apprendrez vous aussi à affronter l'adversité et à vous relever, encore et encore.
