An okay job is not going to get you the new The Longevity Blueprint Review position or promotion you want. It is not going to help you improve your important relationships or contacts with people. It is not going to help you be a better student or supervisor or leader. It is important to develop a mindset that is open to feedback. Stop and think for a minute how you feel and what you do when you get negative feedback.
Of course your reaction might depend on who gave you the feedback. Some negative comments are easier to shrug off because you do not value the person's opinion. Think about how you give feedback to your children or someone at work. Is it honest feedback given in a positive way. As much as you do not want to get negative feedback about something you have said or done.
