Why You Should Watch Brené Brown: The Call to Courage Next on Netflix

with 2 Comments

The other day I stumbled upon the Netflix movie Brené Brown: The Call to Courage.  I vaguely remembered watching an inspiring Ted Talk by Brené Brown so I was intrigued and pressed play. Sooooo glad I did.

Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston who studies shame, vulnerability, courage and empathy.  Her Ted Talk, The Power of Vulnerability,  has been viewed by 40+ million people.  In her Netflix movie, Brené explains the importance of being vulnerable and disproves the myth that courage and vulnerability are mutually exclusive.  In fact, she reveals that there can be no courage without vulnerability….ever.

The Netflix movie, “The Call to Courage” is an inspiring discussion about the importance of putting yourself out there and daring greatly.  You will laugh, nod your head with her in agreement, and even tear up as you listen to Brené explain her research discoveries through heartfelt, intimate stories about her family and strangers she has met through the years. 

In this movie, you will understand why “Courage over comfort” has become her new motto.  Brené explains that without opening yourself up to vulnerability, that is being yourself even when it means not fitting in, we miss out on the truly great things of life;  love, gratitude, and joy.

Brené encourages us to “dare greatly”, so we don’t find ourselves at the end of this life wishing we hadn’t spent so much time on the sidelines.  “Dare greatly”, she tells us, because we deserve it. 

This is a must see and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!  

Spoiler alert: Bre Brown has a cameo in the new hilarious, Netflix movie, Wine Country starring Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.  Make sure you see Brené Brown’s Call to Courage before seeing it.

    Shout out to Nearly All Things on this great recommendation! I saw this and thought.. hmm…I never heard of her and I had some time to sit down and watch her video. It was so inspiring which I needed for the next day since I was going on a big job interview. In the middle of the interview , the CIO mentions Brene’ Brown and her books. It was such a great moment in the interview when I was able to connect with the interviewer over Brene’ Brown and talked about her Netflix special. What great timing !? P.S. I ordered her book Daring Greatly after watching the Netflix special and I have been reading it all weekend! I highly recommend it.
