Event Recap — ‘Practicing for Life’ Event #3 on Being ‘Enough’

Hi all!

 

Just wanted to post a recap for any of y’all who weren’t able to attend the event on Friday.

We started out with a check-in about in what areas of our life we felt we were ‘not enough’. We followed that up with a reading from Brene Brown’s book Daring Greatly on scarcity mentality and feeling like we will never be enough. After the reading, here are some questions we discussed:
What makes us feel like we are not enough?
 
Can feeling ‘not enough’ ever be motivating, or is it only damaging?
 
How does the act of deciding which activities to engage in set us up for feeling like certain activities will leave us feeling like we are enough?
 
What are some practical ways to begin from a place of feeling like we are enough?
 
Some important takeaways included that we can use healthy competition, not scarcity mentality, to improve ourselves while still feeling like we are enough. If you would like a PDF of the reading, please reach out to Lucas at blawrenc@stanford.edu for a scanned copy.
Please come through for our last event next Friday, 3.10 at 4 PM to talk about Brene Brown’s book Rising Strong.
 
If you have any questions, concerns or feedback, please email Lucas at blawrenc@stanford.edu.
