The Truth About Vulnerability


I love you.

How does that make you feel? Happy? Curious? Weird?

Vulnerability is a taboo subject in modern culture. Most of us are nervous about revealing our feelings – and even worse – are nervous about having the conversation about being nervous! However, in order to grow and improve, Pete argues that this is something that we need to tackle head on – both individually and as a society.

Using some personal examples as evidence, Pete describes the impact that a lack of vulnerability can have, both on our relationships and ability to achieve our goals and ambitions. He argues that vulnerability has the power to be a great teacher and in fact, could be the secret to get where you want to go.

In this episode, you will learn:


  1. How society stops us from expressing vulnerability;
  2. Why cavemen are responsible for our fear of rejection;
  3. How to use vulnerability to see yourself in a different light;
  4. Why courage is the only antidote to move past rejection.
