A set of twins grow up with an alcoholic father who barely scrapes through life.
One twin becomes extremely successful in life and is a teetotaller. The other ends up just like his father.
At the end of their lives when asked why they made their choices both replied, “Our father was an alcoholic.”
But what really makes one person take control of their lives while another crumbles? Why would one person create a successful business and succeed in spite of the odds?
Perhaps not surprisingly it comes down to your ability to connect and be vulnerable. Which ultimately depends on your self-worth.
This TED talk by Brené Brown on “The power of vulnerability” is enlightening. I trust you’ll enjoy it and find it useful.
