How to tackle negative criticism!

How to tackle negative criticism? What is creative thinking? And how can you use creative thinking to fight back negative criticism? Creative thinking is the ability to accept your strengths and weaknesses in order to flourish in a challenging environment. A person who has no idea of what he is capable of doing cannot do anything worthwhile in his or her life. On the other hand, a simpleton who has embraced his limited abilities but strives to improve every single day will ultimately achieve great success! Throughout your teenage years and adulthood, you will find people who will tell you how difficult life can become. They will tell you that things are not too easy. Some people may even thrash your lifestyle and claim that you will never be able to achieve great things in your life. In simple words, they will underestimate your very existence. (What could be worse? For them?) People do what they do best – they talk. You must do what you do best – your gut feeling is stronger than the people on the outside. If you want to change the course of your life and if you want to do something different, you do not have to think too much! What do successful people say? 

Varun Agarwal, filmmaker and founder of a million dollar company, says, “Don’t think too much. Just do!” Richard Feynman, notable physicist, says, “What do you care what other people think?” Steve Jobs, creative thinker, says, “All external expectations, shame, pride and fear of failure – these things just fall away in the face of death. There is no reason not to follow your heart!” You get angry. You get frustrated. You get depressed. You cannot handle pressure. But these are just human ‘things’ – it is absolutely fine to get angry sometimes, it is alright to get frustrated with your surroundings and it is okay if you are depressed and worried about your future (you are not god, you are a human being with a wide variety of emotions) You are living! Steve Jobs was fired from his ‘own’ company – he was angry, frustrated and depressed at the same time! But did he just give up like that? People and media were always ahead when it came to criticising Steve and his poor situation. He was shattered and lost. But the only thing that kept him going was pure creative thinking! He started to think again – he started new projects and he stopped listening to other people! He failed and failed and then finally, with a team of more creative people around him, he successfully created the world’s first 3-D animated film – Toy Story! Students who are in schools and colleges will surely get angry and frustrated with negative criticism and workload. Most people need chances to pass a nasty comment or taunt you in the face. And trust me, you will never be able to stop them from

And trust me, you will never be able to stop them from doing that. But one thing that you can do is to adapt a powerful attitude! You have to stop reacting. You have to stop thinking toooo much – you just have to keeeep doing! You don’t give a ****! (Don’t say it but make them feel that way that you simply do not care) You will try. You will fail. You will try. You will fail. And one day, you will win! But even if you do not, who cares!? Ultimately everyone is going to burn to a crisp when planet Earth gets bombarded by the asteroids! (Don’t believe me? Then, where are the dinosaurs?)
