You can’t criticize someone if you are not practicing it yourself. No one will take your criticism seriously if you cannot follow through with what you preach.
Remember, your foundation is what you stand on, so keep it intact. When your vision is blurry, any negative external judgments can really shake up everything. On the other hand, when your objectives are clear, nothing external can negatively influence your vision and goals.
Embrace the honest feedback, but do not let yourself fall victim to negativity or arrogance. Understand the difference between arrogance and feedback.
There is one great quote by Lysa TerKeurst: “Don’t let compliments get to your head and don’t let criticism get to your heart.“
A person’s honest opinions are valuable and matter the most. However, opinions that are constructive in nature do the exact opposite, so keeping distance from them is the way to go.
Pretty words are not always true, and true words are not always pretty.
