I met Brene’ four years ago through a mutual friend in Houston. We went to lunch. I asked her about what she was daring to dream…what she really wanted to do. Without skipping a beat, she said, “Speak at TED,” as nonchalantly as I’d say, “Bush my teeth.” Just like that. She put it out there. Boldly. Bravely. Ballsy. I thought, “Awesome, good luck with that. I want to be an astronaut ballerina.” But then, a couple of years later she did this (and 6 million people watched), and then this year, she closed TED to a standing ovation.
Oh yes she did.
She dared greatly.
So I’m open to what she has to say about all the daring, greatly. Because she hates it, and she does it, and I respect that.
I wrote a lot more about Daring Greatly, the book and Brene, today on Hitting Refresh. So go there. Also, you can win a signed copy of her book there.
Just leave a comment ON HITTING REFRESH (not here on Blog con Queso) stating what you’d like to do to dare greatly (or what daring greatly means to you) or anything really between now and Friday, Sept 28 at midnight. (Again, the contest closes next Friday night (9/28) at midnight EST).
Good luck. Dare greatly. You can do it.
Now for the fine print: Please only leave one comment there (Not here. there. Comments on the Queso are not counted.), because it’s the nice thing to do, and also because multiple entries will be disqualified. I’ll use random.org to select the winner, and I’ll announce who won at the top of this post and in a separate post next Monday (Oct. 1). Offer eligible only to U.S. and Canada.
