Start by acknowledging that you are not perfect now nor may ever be. Perfection is a false destination. Let growth and development be your daily destination, rather than maintaining a defense of the status quo. We are neither perfect nor heading towards perfection. We are merely developing and growing. Your impressions on others will create learning opportunities if you are open and receptive to receiving feedback. Accept criticism and critique of your actions and move on. Learn from feedback and improve yourself rather than stagnating in self satisfaction.Steve Morris
Accept criticism and critique of your actions and move on.
Always remember, what others said are opinions of you. Ask yourself this question, what are the things that can be learned from their opinions? Feedback receive can be an invaluable lesson learned and helps you improve on your work/action.
Reserve the seats for real critics
Learn how to identify those who has been in the arena, verses those who never been brave and step inside the same arena with you. Your choice matters because not everyone’s opinion of you is useful. Some even like to see.
Lastly, Brene Brown famously quote this
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”Theodore Roosevelt
