Have you ever come across people who always criticize and never complement? These are the kind of people who will always find something wrong in everything they see. To them the tea is never sweet enough, the job is not the best, my business is always recording low returns and the most beautiful girl is not yet born.
Such people always stand in the way of progress. Do not listen to them or believe in what they say if you want to development in your career, business, or in life. Critics are never problem solvers.
There is Yiddish proverb that says, "A critic is like a girl who can't dance and so she says, the band can't play" Critics do not believe anything from anybody, but they want everybody to believe everything they do and say. They tend to know the price of everything yet they value nothing. Do you have a business idea? Go ahead and start it now!
All great business men were criticized at one time but they held on to their ideas. My advice is; expect the most unjust criticism from foes and friends and develop shock absorbers for them. When you are kicked from behind, it can only mean that you are in front.
Have you just started a small business? Are there people saying your style is too aggressive or you are risking too much? Or that you are too ambitious, or you are too young? Don't listen to them, people with great momentum all share one trait; they attract criticism. How you respond to criticism will determine the rate of your business momentum. Criticism should build us not destroy. Do not lose your ambition just because someone criticized you.
Finally, learn to work with constructive people, not the wrecking crew of criticizers.
