We know our worthiness is not dependent on our circumstances.
Yet still we struggle to believe we’re worthy, regardless of the circumstances.
Do you struggle with believing you’re worthy?
If so, please consider…
The Daring Way™
Professional Certified Coach and Certified Daring Way Facilitator, Laura Biering of True Voices, presents the rich and empowering process, The Daring Way™, based on the work of Brené Brown, LMSW, Ph.D. Dr. Brown is a research professor and the author of the New York Times best-sellers, The Gifts of Imperfection and Daring Greatly.
This is an opportunity and an invitation for you (1) to open your heart, let yourself out, and let life in, (2) to cultivate a practice of authenticity, more fully embracing who you really are, and (3) to make the contribution to our world that only you can make.
Join Laura and fellow travelers on The Daring Way™ and forever change the way you live, love, parent, and lead.
Take a risk – own your story. Sure, it’s scary, but once you accept and integrate all of who you are, those parts you’ve previously hidden away are no longer points of contention and self-judgment. Embrace your story and leave behind the fear of being “found out.” Step into the joy of being truly seen, fully loved, and totally engaged in the process of creating the life you really want.
Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, ‘No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough.’ It’s going to bed at night thinking, ‘Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging.’ ~ Dr. Brené Brown
This process has been designed to help you develop new levels of awareness, new skills, and a newfound comfort with having the permission and courage to show up and let yourself be seen. Yes, this requires vulnerability, but vulnerability is “the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love.”
What we know matters, but who we are matters more. Being, rather than knowing, requires showing up and letting ourselves be seen. It requires us to dare greatly, to be vulnerable. ~ Dr. Brené Brown

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable and dare greatly. Daring greatly means making the courageous choice to be “all in” when it comes to our lives. It’s about choosing vulnerability and authenticity over pretending, perfecting, and pleasing. It means embracing our worthiness, thus experiencing love, belonging, joy, and meaning in every arena of our lives. Whether we wish to step into the arena of a new relationship, an important meeting, a career change, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation, if we want to create and live the lives we desire and deserve, we must find the courage to engage with our whole hearts,
