I take one subject and run though a brief overview of it, then ask some very direct questions. The intention of these ‘sessions’ is for you to write the questions in a success journal reflect on them and answer them.

This series of posts is for YOU! If I’m not able to coach you personally one-on-one, I want you to at least get the benefit of “virtual” coaching.

Objective of this Mental Strength Tip:

To help you make the distinction between mental strength advice and the average’s person criticism. You will need to develop the mental strength to ignore the averages person “constructive criticism” and stay focused on your personal goal for success

Let’s Get Started:

There is a difference between solid advice and constructive criticism. Solid advice appears in the form of assistance in helping you achieve your personal goal from people who already have what you want. Criticism comes from the mentally weak that have tried to get success and have failed. They will tell all the reason YOU can make it based only on their failure.

You’ll need to comfortable with the idea that the more you do and succeed, the bigger the target you become. Mentally prepare yourself to expect ongoing criticism will increase as your continue on your journey of success.

Mental Strength Coaching:

My job here as your virtual coach is to raise you level of awareness and mental strength when it comes to being criticized by helping you build the belief that criticism is one the most valuable tools for creating optimum human performance and reaching your personal goal and success.

Both constructive and unsupportive criticism should be considered as stepping stones on your path to success. You need to evaluate the criticism from a logic perspective without emotion by asking, does this person have what I want?

Final Thought

Learning to use criticism as a personal growth acceleration tools is one of the most important roles of coaching. It’s critical for you to keep your ultimate vision in view when you consider the validity of any criticism.

If you can see the criticism as a way to manifest your vision more rapidly, you’ll be processing the criticism with your logical side of your brain. If you become emotion and sensitive to any advice or criticism you’re evaluating the information with your emotional side of you brain.

By keeping your vision in front of you will insulate yourself from any “pain” and keep mentally strong and focused where it can serve you most effectively.
