“How many of you are blamers? How many of you, when something goes wrong,
the first thing you want to know is who’s fault it is?” Dr. Brene Brown
In this short video, narrated by Dr. Brene Brown, New York Times bestselling author and research professor, we learn how blame sabotages relationships—both with others and ourselves. Dr. Brown mixes humor and honesty to share how blaming has an inverse relationship with accountability.
As Dr. Brown explains, accountability requires vulnerability, whereas blaming (self-victimizing) is a way that we discharge anger, discomfort, and pain, and can gain a temporary false sense of control. However, in the courageous act of accepting accountability, we invite growth (self-victory!) through active participation and the willingness to be vulnerable.
When we choose to slow down and listen deeply within, we’re 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! These exercises can help you, and the children in your life, become more comfortable with expressing vulnerability, learn how to self-regulate emotions, and restore balance when in a reactive mode.
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!…”
Final note: I would like you to know that I am currently in the process of putting the ICWIB training up online so that it is easy for anyone anywhere in the world to receive and benefit from the ICWIB Training. I will keep you posted on when it will be available.
