Managing Expectations When Developing The Skill Of Receiving Criticism Well
Whenever we are learning a new skill it invariably takes consistent effort and time. When practicing receiving criticism well, be patient with both yourself and the process. Transformation may not come overnight but with consistent effort you’ll reach a stage where you don’t even have to think of it any more and it comes naturally.
Look back to last Friday’s post where you were asked to list how you would like to feel after receiving criticism and keep those notes somewhere where you will see them often to motivate you and inspire you to continue with the work.
Remember you are working towards an empowered, assertive you, whereby no one gets away with mistreating you and you are in control of the conversation. To me that is something worth working towards.
