Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
I know them. You know them. They are the people who always seem to know everything “better.” They want to put in their “two cents worth” into every discussion, every project and everything in between. These people especially love to criticize how others are doing things. It seems, there just may be an epidemic of “I can do it better.” My question to these people is, “If you can do it better than why aren’t you?”
Many people seem to be able to quickly criticize others, but that is where it stops. Very few take the chance and make the effort to try and improve what they dislike or criticize for fear of being criticized themselves. It is much easier to simply complain and point critical fingers at the work of others than to stand up, make changes and make good things happen!
If the possibility of criticism is what is holding you back, then I say, step forward and face that criticism; when others find fault in what you are doing it will be then that you will know you are on to something!
