Do you want to live a life worth living or are you OK with keeping things the way they are?

The fact that you're even reading this and listening to the podcast means we already know your answer...you want an extraordinary life.

That decision alone puts you in the top 5% of people living on the planet, which is sad when you really think about it.

That sole fact that you want better your life, means that along the way you are going to pick up many nasty comments, deep exhales, raised eyebrows, pleas to stop and other, sometimes very hurtful and nasty, criticism.

The one unfortunate quality of social media is that it has opened you up to every 'keyboard cowboy' in the known universe. It's funny how they all want to tell you how ugly, stupid and ridiculous you are for even thinking that you can (or should) somehow expect better for yourself, while they type their insults behind the closed and safe doors of their room without attempting to better themselves.

The most challenging and sad part about facing criticism is not when it comes from partyman6969 on YouTube, it's when it comes from your mom or your sister who claim to have 'your best interest' at heart. It's important for you to understand that you will face criticism, that's a guarantee, it's how you overcome it, or not, that will propel you forward or keep you back.

The purpose of this podcast is to help you deal with and overcome criticism.

Here Is What We Covered

  • The most essential emotional state you need to access to diffuse the situation completely.
  • Why pretending like it 'doesn't matter is not a good strategy'.
  • Why and how taking the 3rd person role can help you gain some clarity on the situation.
