Criticisms are blessing in disguise

“The nearer you go towards the light, bigger the shadow becomes.”

Same goes with the word Criticism. If you are planning to do something great and incredible, which can drop an impact on the world then you have to cross a lot of barriers and obstacles and these barriers are living bodies, called Critics and obstacles which they throw on you are coined as Criticisms.

criticizingSomeone told me, “The day you start receiving criticisms, feel that you are going in the right direction.”

“The greatest threat to freedom is the absence of criticism.”

– Wole Soyinka

We must never take these sharp criticisms so seriously. They are temporary and can be easily overcome if taken them smartly and carefully. I have seen many people in my professional as well as personal life who get carried away by these irrelevant criticisms.

Here are the simple yet very powerful tips to avoid CRITICISMS:

  1. Filter out negative and absorb the positive words
  2. Don’t concentrate on the harsh parts of critics
  3. Keep your mind calm and don’t get excited
  4. Smile when people bombard on you
  5. Stop thinking when critics leave your place or you leave theirs
  6. Change your mood and fresh up your mind
  7. Forget and forgive

Isn’t that simple?

Believe me, I always follow these points and no one can destroy my confidence. I simply love facing critics and as I said earlier, if taken smartly we can learn a lot from them and their harsh speeches. It builds our strength and makes us strong.

“I like criticism. It makes you strong.”

– LeBron James

Receivers are always been beneficiary than givers. Be a strong receiver and learn as much as from these negative givers and turn your life into positive.

“Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving.”

– Dale Carnegie

Don’t trap yourself inside the room. Open the windows of your heart and keep your mind broad and deal smartly.

Criticisms if taken wisely become blessings in disguise.

Filter out pessimists and be an optimist

One fine evening, you are feeling a bit low and have fallen into deep thought. The door bell rings and as soon as you open the door, you find yourself surrounded by your happy and energetic friends. Suddenly, you have drastically changed from a leafless plant into a fruitful one. You feel a surge of energy!

People are Optimistic, Pessimistic, Positive, Negative and the list goes on. These people make our society and we are a part of it.

Daily we are surrounded by many people across our periphery. It could be our friends, loved ones, colleagues and acquaintances. They all have different attitudes, nature, and behaviour. Some like us and some dislike us. Some are jealous of us while others feel energetic with our presence. Few in the society motivate us, few of them demoralize us and obviously some remain neutral.

Whoever the people are and whatever their likes and dislikes are it is us that will decide who we surround ourselves with.  Who makes us happy?  Whose company makes our day brilliant or gives us positive vibrations? Such people create ripples in our life and make our environment pacifying and tranquilizing.

We must always associate with people who make our day brilliant and should filter those people out who drain our energy and bring feelings of unhappiness. If we keep hanging onto these anti-social elements, it not only drains our confidence but also injects negative pulses inside our sole and makes us pessimists.

Have you ever seen a big tree laden with beautiful flowers? Have you ever observed a lake overwhelmed with lotuses? These germinate when given optimal conditions and proper care in a suitable environment. Similarly, we grow smarter, better and ingenious in our optimal conditions. We become superlative and positive when we spend our precious time with energized people.

Surround with Positive People

A team does better and gives their best performances when all team members are enthusiastic and support each other. Praise each other’s work and respect it. Even one member in a team can spoil the team’s spirit and that will reflect in individual performances.

“A bad fish can spoil the whole lake.”

Filter out such pessimists, negative sources and uproot them from your life. Soothe your heart with the ecstatic, energetic and positive people and mix their energy with your soul and heart and make yourself a powerful and influential personality, full of energy like a bulldozer.

Keep Smiling.. 🙂
