Building up from ground zero
If I operate my relationships from a posture of inauthenticity, it will affect the quality of collaboration. Let's get deeper. Vulnerability is the most valuable asset that any individual can possess. I think it's the most pivotal gesture when you're able to start every relationship and conversation from ground zero. What if we starting asking the raw questions: What is your story, and what has made you to be who you are today? How do you turn your weaknesses into progress for your work, faith, and relationships? I guarantee it will change the dynamic of all your relationships. Everyone has their own ground zero, but it's not until you find it are you truly able to build on it.
Lately, I’ve added journaling to my daily routine. By dumping whatever is on my mind I’ve seen so much personal development. Not only for myself but it has sparked deeper conversations with my closest friends, giving me alternative perspectives. This has opened up doors to conversation that I didn't even think existed. An incredible philosopher by the name Criss Jami breaks it down like this, "To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength."
