Have you had a rough week from your critics? Don’t let the naysayers get you down. Take some time this weekend to evaluate the substance of the criticisms that have been lobbed your way.
Consider if there is any validity to what’s been said about you. Be humble and willing to admit your faults and mistakes, but don’t grovel in self-pity. Pick yourself up, apologize if necessary, then attack next week with a renewed vigor to overcome your failures.
Anything else that’s left over, dispose of it like yesterday’s trash and move on. Ignore future repetitions of criticisms you know aren’t true and do your best to remove those negative voices from your life.
Going forward, consider criticism a blessing. It means you’re making an impact on the world around you, and that someone’s taken notice.
If you’re experiencing zero criticism, it means you’re either having no impact or accomplishing nothing. #critic
