In this short video by New York Timesbestselling author and research professor Dr. Brene Brown brings our attention to how blame sabotages relationships—with others and ourselves. She goes on to share that blaming has an inverse relationship with accountability. Accountability requires vulnerability, whereas blaming is a way that we discharge anger, discomfort, and pain, and can gain a temporary false sense of control.
In blaming others, we are dis-empowering ourselves by choosing to be victims of a situation. This perception prevents us from making progress in our personal evolution. However, in the courageous act of accepting accountability, we invite growth through active participation and the willingness to be vulnerable. As Dr. Brown says, “I believe that vulnerability—the willingness to be ‘all in’ even when you know it can mean failing and hurting—is brave.”
When we choose to slow down and listen more deeply within, we are better able to respond more skillfully to impulses that get triggered within us.
With this in mind, we invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE, because they can help you slow down, go inward, increase your self-awareness, and become more comfortable with your vulnerability.
Also in a recent interview Dr. Bruce Lipton said, “…Freedom is the ability to create without the limitation of generational programming. The I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) Program is a gateway and a pathway into a new and better future because it allows children to fully express themselves and to not be limited by the beliefs that have been passed down from generation to generation. This program also frees up children’s minds and allows their creative nature to create a better world for all of us, which is what we need right now!…”
