So, what is necessary in life?
Criticism! Yes folks, it is the most necessary thing to improve yourself.
If you take it positively and constructively.
Trust me! If you honestly want to improve your life, or a part of your life then say “Yes” to criticism.
Whenever people criticize you, instead of getting defensive or angry at them, say “Thank you”, because they are genuine people who exist, who genuinely want you to improve. Convert every destructive criticism into constructive criticism and feel the magic!
Criticism = Pushes you to fight more; it will definitely help you become your best version, or may be even more than what you might have imagined!
