Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #046 – I love hate mail?

Finding the joy in receiving hate mail (or any criticism, for that matter) takes some serious reframing. At first, each and every criticism lands on my skin like a bloodied whip. I’m prone to take it personally. Or at least I was prone to take it personally.

Love him or hate him, Larry Winget is right … receiving hate mail is a mark of success. For every person “touched” enough to send you hate mail, to tell you you’re wrong, to tell you you’re an idiot, to curse you …. for every one of them, you’ve reached the hearts of 10 others. Raising one’s head high enough to stand above the crowd, to make a statement, to take a stand makes one susceptible to criticism. It’s inevitable.

Elbert Hubbard drove that message home ten decades ago: ​”To escape criticism: do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.”​

I’d rather take a stand for what I believe and risk the slings and arrows, than to, in an effort to avoid the lash, be nothing.

​What are you longing to be?
