Get a Critic!
by Randy Gage
You’ve probably met a lot of fear-based people. They’re everywhere. And you know what their biggest fear is?
Doing something that will piss someone off. Anyone. Anything. Their biggest fear is that someone will say they made a mistake, overstepped their authority, did something without permission, hurt someone’s feelings, or were politically incorrect.
If I have learned anything about success, it is this…
If you don’t have doubters, you’re not doing something epic. If you’re not misunderstood, you’re not doing something important. If you don’t have detractors, you’re not doing something worthwhile.
If you don’t have a critic right now – go out and do something today to get one!
Your are saying social conformity is bad? Or all conformity to any 'system' of thought is bad? Finding individuality!
@Hersh Bhardwaj No I am not talking about either here.
@Randy_Gage Same essence: Only those who live( be default or by choice) for social conformity/political correctness at the expense of individual thoughts/path do not have critics!
" Two roads diverged in the woods, I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference"
- by Robert Frost , for me one of the legends of all time.
Right now I am reading about six basic fears in the Napoleon Hill book
That fear stuff is exactly what holds me back.
I need to write a blog post that will piss some people off. Decisions, decisions about what to write.
@Justin Mazza then go ahead and DO IT! WRITE ´EM! the topic you chose will keep you busy and you´ll reach many readers ;))
I just cut off of someone of my past yesterday. I felt weird first but today I feel a lot better.
Result: one negative person less in my life, who troubled me. I really wrote the "last" at first and showed how pissed I am about ....what....I wanted to cut off from!
And I did.
Allright ! This makes me happy, because i have a lot of detractors :-) All the time i was not happy for this ...
gheese! I'm surrounded! hahaha lots of critics, I need an accountability partner to kick my butt! ;-)
It is evident that the fear of being judged belongs to the people around us. If I lived on a desert island I would not be afraid of people judging me.
@Rosa Muziotti IMHO some people need to be told what to do. If they appeared to be on a desert island, they would seek for someone to take the lead over them. It's hard to make decisions...
I have noticed an interesting thing about one of my critics. At first I could see misunderstanding / irony / irritation in her eyes. But now... I see a glimpse of envy... because she can't allow herseft be like me - a strange guy who wants to get out from the herd. Seems like somewhere deep inside she wants to find her own path too... not just follow someone's "advice"
