We all have those friends, acquaintances, and social media followers that give you what they either call feedback or criticism. No matter what you do, they criticize you for something they usually don’t like.
Sometimes it could be valuable. For example, when your senior criticize you for being too nice when accepting new tasks. They probably have experienced it before and thus want to avoid that their reports falling into the same trap. Which is a good thing.
The problem is most of them don’t have experienced anything when it comes to the content of criticism. They disguise it in a very elegant manner and call it ‘constructive criticism’, while they haven’t constructed anything in that field.
Like people that criticize your deadlift form while they never deadlifted before. They then say things that deadlifts are bad or criticize others for doing it.
Or people that criticize a relationship while never even had a relationship at all. They talk about how you should treat your partner, what they would do, and more bullshit in their fantasy world.
Why would I accept their ‘criticism’ when they have no experience with it in the first place?
They have no skin in the game.
Always listen to the people that have skin in the game. The ones that truly live the way they say and have experience with it. The world is built on action and not fantasy land in somebody’s mind.
If you talk big, put in the action to prove it.
Everybody can talk big, but only a few can fight like a warrior.
Never listen or take advice from nobodies, they have never constructed anything in their lives.
