Are you aware of the TED conference, or the smaller regional TEDx conferences? This video is by a women, Brene Brown, who in particular, is an expert and a researcher on shame, vulnerability, and empathy. Vulnerability is our culture is seen majorly as a weakness, something to avoid. But in the context of CrossFit, and the rest of our lives, is it possible to improve and/or grow without allowing yourself to become vulnerable. Lack of vulnerability leads to a feeling of perfectionism. What would there be to train for if we were all perfect. No one is, and I think most of us know this, but what else could come from our training if were a little more vulnerable. This video is kind of long but can put things in perspective.
