Humans crave validation.
When put effort into creating something, we want to be acknowledged for the hard work we have put in. So we rush out to share our work and thoughts to the world. These days – they are usually done as a social media post.
Then we wait for feedback, craving for that validation – that we nailed it.
“Love your content video.”
“Totally agree with what you said!”
“I disagree. I don’t think you’re accurate in your video…”
Oh oh, a negative feedback. You feel a little taken aback. The defensiveness builds up.
But here’s the kicker:
It’s easy to receive feedback. It takes guts to receive negative feedback.
Salute the people who can take negative feedback and move forward.
