3 Tips Why You Need Critics!

  • Number one, critics give you a different perspective. I said what a different perspective? Yes they see things in you or about you that you may not see yourself.

  • Point number two, he said critics help you grow. Look at what they are saying and ask yourself is there any truth because it allows small, it may be is there any truth to what they are saying. Maybe there is a thread a very small or thin thread of truth to what they're saying but pay attention to that.

  • The third thing is, critics sharpen us, they make us tough. You see in a speaking business, in a coaching business, in any type of endeavor you're getting whole lot of NOS. You see, when you understand that critics will help sharpen you you'll be able to identify if a critic is being critical or simply giving you a fresh perspective. We call it constructive criticism.
