You don’t achieve much without criticism – and other people’s words will stop you, if you allow them to.
We should remember this before we criticize others, and when we think of criticizing someone it should always be done out of love. If you are going to make a comment, look for something positive to say as this is the way you change others – remember love changes everything, and if you have nothing good to say it is better not to say anything.
Dennis Wholey said the following “Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.”
But don’t avoid doing anything because you are afraid of criticism, or else you will die doing nothing. Criticism means you are doing something and others are noticing what you are doing.
Criticism will often cause you to grow faster than anything else. Remember the people who criticise you are jealous that they are not doing what you are doing, and in reality are criticizing themselves for not coming up with the idea first.
Be bold and enjoy life!
