“I have yet to find the man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism.” Charles Schwab
Criticism is necessary for success. You need feedback from others.
But all too often that feedback is mired in negative, destructive criticism that lacks any real specific advice or help.
Negative Feedback: “You need to do a better job selling.”
Missing Feedback: How? What am I doing wrong as a salesperson? Who should I be soliciting?
Negative Feedback: “Your personality turns people off.”
Missing Feedback: What part of my personality turns people off? How do I turn people off?
Negative Feedback: “You need to change what you’re doing.”
Missing Feedback: What do I need to change? What am I doing that is wrong?
While most of the negative criticism may be true, it lacks any constructive, specific feedback. You’re wasting your time listening to it.
Most criticism you will receive, is unfortunately going to be this negative, generalized destructive type of criticism and not the positive, specific, constructive type that helps you improve, grow and move forward with your dreams and goals.
And that’s the type of criticism provided by Booleaders.
Booleaders offer only general, negative criticism because they, themselves, have little to no idea how to help you. They’ve never succeeded in doing what you do, so their advice must be general and lack any specific, constructive feedback. This type of negative, destructive criticism only brings you down; it deflates you, slowing or stopping you on your path to success.
When you are pursuing a dream or goals, you absolutely must seek out only those who offer positive, specific, constructive criticism. You need to seek out Cheerleaders and avoid Booleaders.
Cheerleaders offer constructive, specific feedback that will help you improve and grow and, therefore succeed. Their criticism has tremendous value because they know what they are talking about. Their knowledge is valuable because they succeeded in doing what you are doing, or they have a track record of helping others like you succeed. They have gravitas by virtue of their previous success.
If you want to succeed in realizing your dream, find Cheerleaders and avoid Booleaders.
