The easiest thing to do is to sit on the sidelines and criticize the work of others.
It’s a million times more difficult to actually create something and put yourself out there.
That’s why 98% of people are so quick to criticize and yet they produce nothing themselves.
If you’re creating, it’s important to remember that you’re already more courageous than 98 out of 100 people who would never dare to create.
This isn’t about judging non-creators, it’s about adopting more a confident and courageous mindset knowing that you’re already far braver than those who don’t have the courage to create.
It’s also about diluting the power of destructive criticism when you put your work out there.
When hearing other’s criticism, don’t pay too much attention to a single opinion, instead, listen for patterns and recurring themes.
Those recurring themes could be the insight you need to improve.
100 out of 100 people have an opinion while only 2 out of 100 actually create something that others have an opinion about.
The world doesn’t belong to those who sit on the sidelines and criticize the work of others, the world belongs to those who have the courage to create and put their work out into the world.
