CRITICISM

Perhaps there should be a rule in our society: that if you criticise something you have to show how things could be better.

…………………

If everything that people criticised became resolved to their satisfaction, they would soon be dissatisfied because their whole purpose in life would be gone. “Everything is working alright??? Damn it! There must be something to complain about …”

…………………

Those people who actually get things done pay no heed to their critics. The trouble is that this particular list includes such luminaries as Hitler, Stalin, Saddam Hussein and Robert Mugabe. If you take nothing else from their examples, at least take note of how they accomplished what they accomplished.

…………………

If you see a world full of people attacking you, perhaps this has got something to do with you? And perhaps it is a reflection of how you feel inside?

The trouble is that instead of trying to deal with it on the inside, people tend to attack everything on the outside. Which just increases the negativity and criticism.

It doesn’t work. Stop it.
