Go on admit it you love receiving the odd compliment or three, but I bet you actually remember any criticisms you may have received much more easily.
Well, being aware of your challenges is important, however what it doesn’t do is help improve your performance. Instead criticism makes us retreat, put up defenses not to mention corrode our confidence.
So how do we deal with this? Make sure you always understand and capitalise on your strengths.
The result, by focusing on your strengths, you are likely to be far more engaged in your job and more likely to enjoy a better quality of life than those around you, who let those criticisms become stronger negatives, than the positives, which are so much more rewarding.
So never forget celebrating your strengths!
