We love this new video interpretation of Theodore Roosevelt’s Man in the Arena speech by Dr. Brené Brown. Enjoy.
Many of you know the quote from Theodore Roosevelt’s Man in the Arena speech. It came into my life when I was struggling and desperately needed a new frame to understand why courage matters more than criticism. It inspired me and the book title, “Daring Greatly.”
This video is just a few faces from our community. It’s my way of saying thank you.
When we choose contribution over criticism and courage over comfort, we can do anything!
Thank y’all for being brave.

Dr. Brené Brown (GLS 2013, 2015) has spent the past 13 years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness and shame. With more than 18 million views, her 2010 TEDx Houston talk, The Power of Vulnerability, is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world. She is the author of #1 New York Times bestsellers: Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection. Brown’s newest book, Rising Strong, examines how falling down can be our greatest call to courage and why owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending.
