This episode is part of a monthly series that I have dubbed “Motivation Monday.”

(Yes, I know, very creative of me. What can I say, I’m a genius…)

Seriously though, the idea here is simple:

One Monday every month, I’m going to post a short and punchy episode that I hope gets you fired up to tackle the workouts, work, and everything else that you have planned for the week ahead.

As we all know, it’s one thing to know what you want to do, but it’s something else altogether to actually make yourself do it, and I hope that this series gives you a jolt of inspiration, energy, and encouragement to get at it.

So, if you like what you hear, then make sure to check back for the latest and greatest installment.

Lastly, if you want to support the show, please drop a quick review of it over on iTunes. It really helps!

If someone feels vulnerable and doesn’t post about it on, uh, delete your Instagram. Will the universe recognize their bravery and reward it with quantum abundance and gratitude? Um, I fear an answer to that one may require a blood sacrifice to the ancient writhing things and the gently humming stones.

But let’s chew a little bit on this glob of gristle anyway, and see where it takes us these days. It is trendy to muse about embracing vulnerability like it is a cosmic cheat code. Like it is one weird trick for awakening your essence and owning your superpower. Openly wallowing in anxieties, insecurities, and failures is the gateway to the good life.

Glory B, look, vulnerability is indeed vital to virtuous and productive living, but it doesn’t involve. Winging about weakness or making excuses for missteps. Announcing that we’re not perfect may feel uncomfortable, but so does exposing ourselves in front of JCPenney. Point being, while all growth involves some degree of discomfort, not all discomfort produces positive growth.

Those of us who aren’t monsters, We all have doubts. We have worries, and we all know that. We all have doubts and worries. So admitting as much isn’t inspiring. It isn’t noble. What is, is acting courageously. That is the crux of authentic. Vulnerability, which comes in many flavors, taking ownership of negative circumstances instead of blaming others, asking for advice instead of pretending like we have it all figured out and doing the right thing even when it costs us something bogus.

Vulnerability, on the other hand, seeks approval and sympathy. It elevates fragility and disability, overconfidence and excellence. It glorifies who we are. Over who he can be. These two types of vulnerability can appear similar in practice, but they’re actually as different as oxygen and a picture of it one sustains and the other suffocates.
