You must learn to accept and even embrace constructive feedback. Criticism is a way for you to explore and develop your weaknesses into strengths. Turn criticisms into opportunities for growth. Whether that critique is about your work, your writing, your public speaking, your networking, your image, etc., look for ways to improve your message, your product, your project and yourself.
Most feedback is truly constructive and meant to propel you forward. Be open to realizing you don’t know it all, you don’t have all the answers, you’re not perfect and there’s always room for improvement, in all areas of your life.
Without improving ourselves we’d be stagnate. So, go out and ask people for feedback.
If you’re in school speak to your professors about your critical thinking/writing skills. Visit a writing lab and ask for help.
Video tape yourself giving a 5 minute talk and then critique yourself and ask others how you can improve.
Those that seek out feedback are the unafraid. They are the ones that know the true value of change.
Take responsibility for your weaknesses, accept your strengths, and work on both.
How can you improve upon your speaking skills, your writing abilities or your presentation skills? All 3 of these are invaluable in any career or business you venture into.
There is always something you can improve upon.
