How To Handle Criticism & Dream Crushers

With Lydia Lee

Definition of a Dream-Crusher:  A person who attempts to discourage or stands in the way of someone else pursuing their dream.

Are you dealing with naysayers and negative people in your life that ‘poo-poo’ on your dreams?
If you are making a positive change in your life, career or business you will face pushback from people close to you.

Criticism can be demotivating and demoralizing. Your confidence can be affected by these naysaying doubters, and you may find your energy being consumed by it which causes you to be distracted from achieving your dreams and goals.

Your ability to be able to discern the right advice vs. the noise is vital to your success.  And learning how to deal with critics who voice their opinions, worries, and concerns, will help you to interact with them healthily.Get the 30 Day Roadmap To Quit Your Job & Prepare For Your New Life
