Vulnerability Challenge

BODY & MIND™ VULNERABILITY CHALLENGE

VULNERABILITY CHALLENGE ACTIVITY

Being vulnerable is something we all struggle with. We all want to feel connection and love, but at the same time we have difficulties showing what we truly think and feel.

Vulnerability at the right time is a strength, not a weakness. Being genuine and caring for other people will result in a life that will be more satisfying than anything you’ve experienced before, which is why we created this challenge.

CHALLENGE

  • Contact 3 people and tell each of them how you feel about them in a genuine way.

ACTION!
Post a video and tell us about your experience in the comments below.

Hi everybody, struggling to embed videos but I’m not giving up! 3 vulnerability goals: 1) Discussing wiht my mum that I feel guilty to not be there at home to help her; 2) Saying properly goodbye to my old rollerderby team; 3) Speaking up in front of my housemates when they disregard animal cruelty.

https://youtu.be/MyE9CjPsyLg Hey [Name], I’ve been thinking about our conversation today and in remembering our past conversations, I’m seeing a pattern that has not ended. I feel like I’m doing you a disservice by keeping our connection because we are not a personality match, nor do we connect on any social vibe. When you invest in someone, you note and honor their boundaries. That doesn’t happen with our connection and I need to move on. There is not one relationship that I have where my name isn’t Lisa. Our connection is not a peer situation that serves me as you cannot… Read more »

I understand about listening to moaning. What I try to do is give advice. However as my wife reminds me. Often people just what some empathy as opposed to problem solving. It reminds me of Covey’s eye glasses prescription story.

A tough week you’ve had.
From an outside perspective it seems crazy to have a no contact rule in your Mentor program.

One way to contact your mum is to write a letter. That way she can take her time to understand where you are coming from without the stress of a life conversation.

Have a great work trip and hopefully come back refreshed.

Stage one looks to have been a success by your body language.
Good luck taking it to the next level.

Thank you everybody! Update: Told my housemate that it makes my day already in the morning to have breakfast together and talk about cool stuff (he is also into nutrition, startup culture, martial arts and stoic philosophy) and that it is a rare and valuable thing to meet great friends like him. Everybody should have housemates like that.
It didn`t cost anything but he looked at me like I had just given him a new car or something.

I am going to go the extra mile and thank four people for having a profound effect on my life. First, my wife Susan, who does the home accounting and manages the money in the household while I pursue my “lofty” ambitions. Secondly, my mother who taught me to be resourceful and adaptable to nearly any crisis situation. Third and Fourth, my friends Tym Moss and Arnold Rodriguez, who have helped and are helping shoot and edit the “Inanna” series – videos based on skits I have written originally for the entertainment of my wife and myself. Susan and I… Read more »

For the Vulnerability Challenge I will speak face to face to the following 3: – My Wife, she is so very supportive & honest with me. It will be great just to thank her. Her latest support is not giving me hassle that I am planning on flying out on our family holiday a few days after in-laws, my Wife & our kids. This is due to me needing to work on an event which flow into the next point. A guy I’m working with. We are together pulling an All American, Classic, Custom, Hot Rod and Bike Show together… Read more »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUpJXU94VE4 OK the 3 people I am contacting this week for my Vulnerability challenge are: My sister – to tell her how much I appreciate her in my life specifically as a recent mother in encouraging and inspiring us in the birth of my son Kaden! My daughter – I want to praise her for the many wonderful things she does in her life (as opposed to criticising her for NOT doing things! 🙂 ) My friend – I’m calling out a friend of mine and getting vulnerable by telling him that I don’t think makes the proper effort to… Read more »
