How to Respond to Criticism

  • Bill Gates = most criticized man in business.
  • Tiger Woods = most criticized man in golf.
  • Kobe Bryant = most criticized man in basketball.
  • Your BIG Competitor = most criticized in your industry.

Why the hate?

Because humans crave status (i.e., Person X is happier being the top dog in a poor neighborhood than the small dog in a rich neighborhood), criticisms tell you Person X wants to take you down a notch to feel more content.

  • Like gossipy high school girls telling their friends that the hottest girl in their class is the biggest frickin %^@$, Bob going out of his way totell you how much you suck means Bob probably secretly envies you.

The hater-ader-ade tells you you're doing something well.

The astronomically successful will this:

  • 'The more successful I've/we've become, the more criticisms I've/we've gotten.'

Random criticisms = good.
