Episode 93. How To Embrace Vulnerability As The Source Of Your Strength with Nadav Wilf
Vulnerability might not be something we immediately associate with leadership.
Many of us grew up with infallible superhuman action heroes, who never put a foot wrong or suffered a moment of doubt, but those days are over. People need leaders who they can relate to, who they can make a human connection with.
For those of us who dedicate ourselves to guiding others on their journey, the pressure to be perfect can sometimes be a massive hindrance to our own sense of wellbeing. Many of us find ourselves worrying that if we don’t have all the answers, are we really going to be able to inspire people, or even to help them?
It’s a question that Nadav Wilf has struggled with, and I know that I have too.
The truth is that lessons in life come from experience, from walking the path and getting your feet dirty along the way, stumbling now and then, but always keeping moving. Every wrong foot and every mistake we make are lessons which we can share with others.
Figuring out how life is supposed to work is something that we can only do together, and each of us are both student and teacher. Everyone who comes to you brings their own unique circumstances and perspective, and that’s what helps fill the gaps in your own knowledge.
None of us are perfect, no one has all the answers. Sometimes we get tired, we feel discouraged or we wonder if all this is really worth it. And that’s okay. It’s part of what makes us human. Living our challenges and overcoming them is exactly what makes a leader, a kindred spirit, a sincere and genuine example for others to follow.
So be sure of yourself. Not because you are always right, but because you will always learn.
These are some of the tips that Nadav Wilf leaves us in this episode of The Resilient Minds Podcast.
