Motivational Power Quote

Never React Emotionally to Criticism 

"Never react emotionally to criticism.

analyze yourself to determine

whether it is justified.

If it is, correct yourself, other wise,

go on about your business."

Norman Vincent Peale, author  

  

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Never react emotionally to criticism  

If you are on the receiving end of criticism don't over react.  

Look at the source of the criticism and determine if the criticism has merit. If the criticism is negative but valid, thank the person for sharing the information with you and make ever effort to correct the situation.   

If you are at fault stay in control of the situation by admitting that you where at fault and take responsible for your actions. By admitting your responsible you will defuse the other person and the situation will not be accelerated.    

If in analyze of the criticism you find that it's not valid we have several choices.  

Once you determine that the criticism is not valid, dismiss it and move forward.  

If the criticism is coming from a person that has continued to criticism you without merit or being truthful you may want to professionally approach that person have ask them for their help. Ask them to share with you for the source of their criticism and clear up any areas of misunderstanding.   

Thank the person for their input and ask them to speak to you personally in the future before they share information (criticism) with other people to ensure that they have their facts right.  

Remain calm and in control to find the best way to resolve the situation but never react emotionally to criticism because in many cases the exactly what they are looking for.   

Never react emotionally to criticism and you will remind in control of your emotions and as a result you will make far better decisions.

Criticism is a difficult thing for most of us all to handle. We see ourselves as pretty much above the rest. Sometimes we need to clean the fog off our mirrors!
