What Vulnerability Really Is

Vulnerability is consciously choosing to freely express your thoughts, feelings, desires, and opinions regardless of what others might think of you.

Accept who you are

When someone admits they are bad at something, they will probably be more respected.

Accept who you are, faults and all.

Taking responsibility

When you take responsibility for your problems, you're in control of the solution. When you blame others, you’re handing over control to someone else. And you cannot control them.

Taking up responsibility shows that you accept reality for what it is and set out to work with what you have.

Mindsets in the workplace

We spend half of our day at work (and even more) and both our mindset and the mindset of those around us will have a significant impact on our life, especially the mindset of our leaders.

The fixed mindset in the workplace

  • It doesn’t easily allow you to change course.
  • It doesn't  believe in growth,  but in right and wrong and any suggestion of change or adaptation is considered a criticism.
  • Challenges or obstacles tend activate defensive mechanisms.
  • When something goes wrong, it doesn't take responsibility- it blame others because that would be akin to accepting inferiority.
  • Believes in a world of hierarchy: where some people are superior and some are inferior. 

Creating a growth-mindset environment

  • Presenting skills as learnable
  • Conveying that the environment values learning and perseverance, not just ready-made genius or talent
  • Giving feedback in a way that promotes learning and future success.

The victim mindset

It happens when we focus on how you believe other people are doing you wrong or what you think they are doing to cause you pain. It means focusing on other people's flaws and how you feel mistreated.
This fuels feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and despair.

Looking in the right direction

How someone else treats you is outside your control.
But noticing who or what you are exposing yourself to is within your control. And so you should focus on that.
