In today’s episode of The Daily Sweat Podcast I’m chatting with Jordan Thomson, fellow coach, writer, and host of the Journal Theory podcast.

We talk allllll about vulnerability – a hot topic these days, and for good reason!

Key Points of Discussion

  • Understanding what vulnerability really is
  • Feeling lonely and disconnected even during a time when social media has allowed us to “stay connected”
  • Tips and tools for those struggling with vulnerability in a world of highlight reels
  • The power of journaling and how to get into the flow of it
  • The importance of trusting your intuition
  • Understanding the benefits of Slow-Motion High-Intensity Strength Training

Notable Quotables

  • “…there is so much power in getting control of your mindset and realizing we have complete creative control of our lives.”
  • “We are tribal-we are meant for a sense of community.”
  • “When we allow ourselves to be vulnerable and lead with those actions…it’s saying – my goals, my dreams, my voice- is so important to me that I’m willing to leave myself open, possibly to wound, for that real connection with others.”
  • “Be transparent, be open, and be honest, despite what will come of it and how it will be perceived by other people.”
  • “There is some sort of magic that happens when you put pen to paper and these ideas just flow through you.”
  • “If you can’t be honest with yourself, you can’t be honest with anyone else.”
  • “At the end of the day, if you can get your mind right, you can do anything.”
