Chapter 18: Criticism Is a Sign of Success

Although being criticized is not a pleasant experience, criticism doesn’t imply failure. It often means that people are jealous of one’s achievements. When someone gets attention due to their actions, it can be expressed in different ways: admiration, a desire to learn, or criticism. Criticism can come in different forms such as giving advice. This can sound like, “You should enjoy life more! It's not all work,” or, “Why are you spending so much energy on this?” If we know that we are on a good path, we should treat criticism as an indicator of our success.
