This means that we need to learn from criticisms and correct our mistakes, making us better people
You know, sometimes I want to throw those bricks right back! I think we all do. Criticism I can take, to me it is a sign of trust. If a person cares enough about our interactions (no matter how minor or inconsequential they may be) to correct and redirect me, then I want to work on it to make it better. Even if they delivered the information in a confrontational or aggressive way, at least it is a sign we are communicating and yes; you can use it to build a firm foundation.Now, some folks are just being nasty. To that I say, bless and release. Some people you just can't help, they are too damaged and angry to accept it right now. It's okay. There have been times when I was damaged an angry, and have acted poorly. We all need to give each other a free pass once in a while.Blessings to you Jane, thanks for taking the time to make me think a little bit today.
Penny, I am like that sometimes. I tend to be defensive at first, but honestly, i always think about that comment when the person is not there. The truth is that some criticisms do not hold water, that means, that there is nothing to think about it, but many are bricks that one could use to build a firm foundation.
Exactly!!! I love how you think Jane. That kind of mindset are meant for leaders who always ends up reaching their goal.
Great quote! i agree... this also means you will embrace failure, learn from it and keep going until your dream is realized.
You are very correct, Eugenia! i did not see it from that perspective.
I know... we are raised from fear of failure. so we tend to try our best not to fail because somehow failure is thought to be a bad thing. I choose to take failure as a lesson and a progress to my success.
That would give many of us the necessary bricks to build a very strong foundation, one that couldn't be torn down with a lifetime of thrown bricks! Learning from our own failures is something that should be done by all of us every single day of our lives.
I am sure that there are many successful people who think the same way! You are a true inspiration and I am sure your posts help a lot of people build up their own foundations.
The bricks are like our own personal failures and shortcomings that others feel the need to point out every day and although that lets us know who we are, I think it lets us become whoever we want to be and the brick throwers will be left with their own miseries.
I love it! Can I share this? People who can withstand the trials always end up reaching their goals in life.
