If you’re ready to claim your greatness, you’ll need to make peace with criticism. Because it’s coming. It’s the price of admission for being bold and powerful.
Here’s my simple, surefire way of handling criticism that comes my way. It takes practice, but it works. Don’t over-think, overanalyze or over-complicate it.
Developing a thick skin takes time. In the beginning, criticism will hurt like hell. But if you always come back to what’s true, you can let the stuff that isn’t relevant or helpful go.
We are conditioned to please others from an early age. But doing so is a recipe for playing small and withholding our magnificence.
So, move on – and let yourself SHINE.
