Welcome the criticism

There is no law that says you have to be hurt by criticism. In fact, you can choose to thrive on it.

No, you don’t want to intentionally offend people or do truly foolish things. But there’s no reason why you ever have to let anyone else’s opinion of you get you down.

It’s nice to have positive feedback. Yet it can be far more useful and instructive to receive negative feedback.

It is good to know what you’re doing right. Yet the biggest potential for improvement comes when you understand what you’re doing wrong.

Instead of being defensive or resentful about the criticism you receive, be appreciative. If someone has a problem with you, let it be that person’s problem and let it be your gain.

You are absolutely worthy, apart from what anyone else may think, and fully capable of continual improvement. Welcome the criticism and the opportunities it brings, and use it to make each day, each effort, each experience even better than the one before.

— Ralph Marston
