How Do You Deal With Criticism…

On November 23, 2013 by admin

I came across an interesting read from Dianne Lowther regarding her ‘Dealing With Criticism’ which I would like to share with you, feel free to share from the SHARE button too on the left hand side.

The one great aspect I took away from her read and that I feel others can use is the quote from Theodore Roosevelt that she used in her write up:

“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, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; 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 fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

So when next you’re criticized and you feel it’s not a reasonable criticism or if it makes you feel down, remember the above quote. BE BIG, BE BOLD, BE CONFIDENT!
