  1. Make the reality you want be blessed by you instead of you being blessed by it. In other words how can you become the person that enriches the reality you want, so it needs you rather than you needing it.

    Love from a self-development Youtuber 💝….

  3. Thank you for this video! I absolutely agree. Criticism is a necessary component to growing and overcoming any obstacles you face. I’m a professor so this is something I have to deal with all the time and it can be a challenge taking feedback for what it is when you receive a healthy dose of constructive and destructive feedback.
    I’m also glad that your first tip was about controlling your emotions, as emotional intelligence is a huge determining factor in how people receive feedback. People with high emotional intelligence are better able to keep their emotions in check and see feedback for what it is.

  4. Thankfully this time around I was Not animated while I had faced criticism
    I had dealing that with
    1. Keep a humour side of you.( it acts as a spare tire you keep for your SUV).
    2. During heated moment keep mum and pretend to listen coz you will know when its right to speak use simple few words only.
    3. Then most important comeback with your work within a week max and you will be satisfied.

    I after watching this video leant new ways of dealing and the template is great !
    Thank you 🙂

  5. Here are my 10 extra tips to INCREASE your daily manifestations that I’ve learned over the years..👇🏾

    1. Practice gratitude every morning. When you wake up, list everything that you are grateful for and feel that gratitude in your core. Feel free to write things down in a journal so it is easy for you to remember.
    2. Replace your negative thoughts with positive ones. Every time you feel a negative thought coming on, make a positive spin on it right away.
    3. Take ownership for things that happen in your life. It's easy to blame others however you will feel much better when you realize that most issues stem from us.
    4. ALWAYS believe that good things are about to happen. By being open to new possibilities you are inviting abundance into your life.
    5. Remember that like attracts like so you get back whatever you put out, whether it is good or bad. So do good AND received good.
    6. Meditate for five minutes a day. During this time focus on how you want your life to be; but place your focus on how you feel AND feel that feeling as if you have already accomplished those goals.
    7. Step outside of your comfort zone. Stop playing it safe and make that decision to finally go for your dreams.
    8. Focus on activities that make you feel truly happy. When you are truly happy you have the best vibrational frequency to manifest your desires.
    9. Avoid the naysayers and surround yourself with people who only lift you higher. Downers will be downers, don't let them drag you into their misery.
    10. Don't be afraid to dream and know that you are always supported by the universe.

    Hope this helps!

  6. The more experiences and advanced you get, the better criticism gets! It is pretty valuable for improvement except as a very beginner – in that case it only causes harm for most poeple

  7. I wish I had heard and learned this when I was much younger. I'm going to do my best to follow this advice going forward. Thank you for these helpful tips Mr. Tracy. Best regards to you.

  8. Tracking the facts in criticism and work on it like how to grow by avoid defensive and taking ownership of your part of problem and solve the problem. Thank you for your valuable words.

  9. It's not pleasant to recieve criticism but after your this video i will not consider it attack and when i get a criticism i will take the time to breath in and breath out for calm. Then i look at into a part of good in it for my personal development . Thank you so much Brian for a lot of things of useful .

  10. Is it Information or Criticism? You allways choose yourself. Is it a behavior or your personality? Make a big difference also, because each and everyone have a personality, that contains behaviors. So I try to think to myself that is a behavior, that someone don't like. And I have a opportunity to correct that behavior, to become a better person for myself and others. So for me it's information.

  11. “We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes – understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.” – Arianna Huffington

  12. Writing things down in a fortnightly document to utilise with my Line Manager in our one-to-one sessions. Helps tick things off and keeps track of performance

  13. I had been criticized by my fellow investors for not being a profit making trader for a while, I accept my failures, kept my concentration on my work, waited patiently and now things are getting better, all are appreciating me for my results and they forget about my failures. Brian you said the exact words which is really worth for a common man's present situation. Keep posting videos like this and I'm praying for your health and long life.

  14. Looking and sounding great Mr Tracy. I can’t fault this video. It’s full of wonderful advice on how to deal with what I like to call constructive feedback

  15. Indepence isn't when you stay alone but have enough to sustain you. Portfolio income is a great way of achieving financial indepence. I got to understand financial indepence when , I started earning $12k every month from my long term investment package which was opearated and managed by a licensed investment Adviser John Augustus Godfrey Jr
