6. Don’t Ignore Criticism
This advice may seem to run counter to not letting others steal your fire, but there’s a big difference between people who want to bring you down and people who are trying to offer you a way to improve yourself.
Criticism can be hard to take, but try to get the educational lesson out of it and don’t take it personally.
If someone’s criticism makes no sense and doesn’t have a grain of improvement to it, then dismiss it and move on.
