This is a shout out to all the Great Analysts of our time, the Critiques, the know it all’s, the always finding something wrongs, the you could have done it this way clan, the ones that can never be pleased.
This is to you. If you like, don’t find something and do with your life, just because you’re afraid of trying or you’ve failed too many times, doesn’t mean you must pull everyone down, sometimes try to encourage, sometimes see the improvement and not the fault, sometimes be the reason why someone will push on and not give up.
Now I’m not saying don’t point outmediocrity when you see it, I’m not saying don’t try to point out errors, but there are constructive ways of doing things, you don’t have to be destructive.
I’ve once heard it said that critics are people who were either too afraid to try or the ones who tried, failed and gave up. Now maybe not all of them, but a lot of times, critics are rarely ever doing anything I’m comparison to the people and things they choose to criticise.
So I’m not saying don’t listen to people’s opinions or advice, but I’m saying many times these people criticising you haven’t even really succeeded at anything. But you are doing something, so don’t let their words cripple you.
So dear critic, be true to yourself, appreciate excellence when you see it, talk about things that can be done better, be helpful, be creative, be constructive while trying to correct, let your words ALWAYS be aimed at building and not tearing down.
“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.” Frank A. Clark
