How do you respond to criticism?
- Do you take criticism personally? Does it feel like an attack on your identity?
- Do you ignore anything negative that anyone has to say?
- Do you mine criticism for the value or truth or how it may serve your life?
Identity, Actions and Outcomes are seperate things:
- Do you recognise that your identity (your human value and respect) is independent of your worthiness?
- Are you taking any criticism as an attack on your identity?
Who is speaking into your life?
- What is their relationship to you?
- What are their motives and intentions?
- Do they have your best interests at heart?
- How might your life change or add value if you integrated their feedback?
- Can you get feedback from those in your circle of trust if what is shared is in any way true?
Do you have a growth mindset?
- Do you believe that change and grow are possible?
- Are you able to live to learn, grow and experience and not just be successful?
- What more could you learn about yourself if you look honestly at the feedback without taking it personally?
Your reaction can be a doorway?
- Are you triggered by a certain comment?
- Is there something there?
- Are you reacting from the present or the past?
- What value might you find if you were able to open up or be curious about the criticism?
Criticism Summary Questions:
- Who is the criticism coming from?
- Do I think it’s valid? If it’s hard to engage with? Why?
- What might the outcome be if I could learn from this or take it on board? Is it worthy of consideration?
