In my last article I discussed three millionaire mind secrets, critical for true prosperity. Today I want to share something which is as important, and relates to the issues I raised on beliefs and self esteem. Specifically, it is about developing a resilience to what we may interpret as judgement and criticism.
Why is that important? Because you can only become what you believe about yourself.
When our self image is not as strong as it could be, we often get crushed by the negative opinions of others. And when you are seeking to break through the mold, in any area of your life, it is natural for other people to get threatened and criticize you. In fact, the history of financial success is marked by people who overcame a chorus of critics on their way to creating massive wealth.
But what do you do if you aren’t so thick-skinned? What if it hurts when people say that you’re flat out wrong? Or that your idea is just dumb? Or that they would never invest or buy from you in a million years. We already know that it’s not the criticism that matters; it’s your reaction to it.
Having a healthy response to criticism is one more of the millionaire mind secrets you acquire with the use of self hypnosis and other mind power techniques.
What is a healthy response to criticism?
Is it possible to feel okay, even while you are being criticized?
What if you had the ability to use criticism simply as feedback? To evaluate and listen to what can help you and ignore what has no value.
Here is an exercise from the Wired for Wealth Program that you can use to acquire one of the most important millionaire mind secrets. With mental practice you can “train your brain” to become immune to the negative effects of criticism.
