Ok, let's not beat around the bush. Nobody likes being vulnerable.
But, vulnerability is the gatekeeper of your true essence, and the extent to which you allow it more fully into your life is the extent to which you will reach your potential. Period. There is no shortcut around this. Embracing your vulnerability is the most surefire way to take the fast track to unleashing your potential, and it does not have to be a nail-biting, emotionally exhausting experience when you do it either.
