Mound Visits, 6/3/21
As a coach I heard my fair share of criticism. To be honest, there were times that it occupied way too much space in my mind and heart. It was painful. It was also distracting. Harboring negative thoughts did not help my pursuit of positive goals. I had to shake them off as a dog shakes fleas from from his fur.
“Don’t be distracted by criticism. Remember-the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you.” – Zig Ziglar
“If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.”
Responding to every criticism is non-productive and gives bitter people an opportunity to compete in their favorite sport, devouring us.
