Anyone doing a great work will be faced with a major roadblock. That roadblock known by many different names could be summed up in one word – Criticism.
Criticism, it’s the killer of mighty men. Criticism, it’s what will keep you from doing your greatest work.
We often think that fear is the greatest enemy of progress.
We’re fearful we’ll fail. We’re fearful we won’t be fast enough to market. We’re fearful we’ll look like fools.
Fear is a great killer of progress, yet it’s not the greatest enemy. There’s something far more sinister.
That something is our ability to take criticism.
Why Criticism Is Worse Than Fear
Fear holds us back. Fear tells us we can’t do something. Fear is scary.
But it’s not as bad as we think.
