If the critics in your life are bringing you down, this post will help you put those critics in their place, which is in your dust…
Your Critics are not the GooRoos they think they are
The world is filled with “arm-chair gooroos”, those experts who criticize everything you do. They even take it upon themselves to spread the gospel of how “You screwed up” to anyone who will listen to their negative rants and perilous predictions about your latest would be failure.
But if you take a step back, you will see that those critics are almost always criticizing those who are actually in the game and doing something.
Why Critics love to give you “Constructive Criticism”
Critics never move the conversation forward toward any positive possibility. Surely you have wondered why your attempt to make money online is met with such violent opposition! I mean really? The cause of those critics’ unrest lies squarely in their own lack of anything but mediocrity.
Critics rarely “walk their talk”
It is also true that those who do the most, in life and in business, are those who generally talk the least. They are so busy striving to make a difference or working to achieve their goal that they simply do not have time to criticize others or draw attention to themselves. Their actions, always create positive and successful reactions…
Be careful who you listen to! A good way to evaluate those you choose to listen to is to observe how they observe themselves. Are they like the teenager attempting to gain more control from their parents by declaring, “I am an adult!” Those who are always declaring who or what they are, usually are not! Likewise, anyone who has to declare their own greatness, usually by disparaging others, simply isn’t there yet.
Success and high achievement is not a pretty thing to watch happen. Because they embrace their own mediocrity, critics don’t understand that Success requires Lots of dirt, blood, sweat, and tears.
Failures must occur before any great victory begins to emerge. But it is far better to make the attempt, even if you fail in the end than to spend your life on the couch, as an ‘expert’ belittling the efforts of others; caught in that gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat.
I think this quote sums up critics nicely:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat…
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”
— Theodore Roosevelt
