To succeed in life, you need to learn to overcome the many efforts of others to pull you down. Critics are everywhere, often the most significant people yet very controversial; don’t let them scare you. No one can make you feel average without your permission.
Your actions should not be limited to the words of critics or things that have no-fault; if you rely more on what other people say about you, chances are you will have more confidence in their opinion than in yourself. Seek counsel from great and productive minds.
Do you have any great ideas?
Bring it on. Make it happen. Nothing significant can be or has ever been accomplished without controversy or criticism. Many great ideas have been lost because the ones with the concept couldn’t stand the complaint and gave up. Criticism ends up as a compliment if you know what you’re doing.
Are you in the habit of criticizing the efforts of others? Do you find pleasure in erasing the marks of other people?
Here’s Japanese wisdom for you:
. If it’s not yours, don’t take it.
. If it’s not right, don’t do it.
. If it’s not true, don’t say it.
. If you don’t know, shut up.
Blessings and Love ❤️
