Criticism

How we deal with criticism has a huge impact on our improvement.

Most of the time, you will see beginners not very receptive to it. You say one thing they can improve on, but they respond with everything that they claim they were doing "right".

When you look at the more advanced athletes, no matter how good they are, they simply acknowledge that there was something they could have done better and work on it.

So remember, nobody is perfect and the only way to avoid plateaus is to embrace criticism!

now a highlight of my coach that I just made

I'm not very good at taking criticism, I'll admit. I tend to just shut it out when I hear it, instead of listening to it and improving myself.

I believe your post on criticism relates to your post on ego. I admit I don't like criticism. And the reason: Ego! Like Lee sensei says: Leave your ego at the door. Also your shoes. And socks.
