Daring to Lead

One thing you should know about me is that I love self help books. I have read every Iyanla Vanzant book determined to “Fix My Life”.

A little over a year ago I discovered Brene Brown and she completely knocked my socks off. Her background and expertise is in shame and vulnerablity. She has tailored her content for businesses and leadership development and I’m obsessed with her latest book “Daring to Lead”.

I highly recommend it. Among many other really amazing philosphers and thought leaders that influenced this book, the actual inspiration for the title comes from a quote from Theodore Roosevelt that I will share with you.


“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 errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; 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, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” - Theadore Roosevelt
