Criticism is not something that you want to avoid; rather, it’s what you must expect to come your way once you start hitting it big.
Criticism is defined as the judgment of the merits and faults of the work or actions of one individual by another.
When you start taking the right amount of action and therefore creating success, criticism is often not far behind.
It may first show up as advice from others: “Why are you spending so much energy on that one client? He never buys anything” or “You should enjoy life more! It’s not all work, you know.”
If you’re generating substantial success, people will start to pay attention to you. Some will admire you, some will want to learn from you, but unfortunately, most will envy you. Remember: Success is not a popularity contest.
Keep pouring on the success, and sooner or later, the very same people who were putting you down will be admiring you for what you have done. Those who initially judged your actions will later be singing your praises—just as long as you take the criticism as a sign of your growing success and keep the accelerator on your actions at 10X. Keep motivated! See my 10X Financial Freedom Certification special offer HERE.
