I read some interesting stuff, recently, about emotional intelligence. And one of the interesting points I saw was how resilient people “crave feedback and constructive criticism.” They know they don’t have all the answers. So, they look to people they trust to give them objective input.
One person wrote how resilient people practice what he called “Kaizen.” That’s a Japanese word for continuous improvement. So, they don’t just accept feedback. They actually crave it.
I know I don’t have all the answers either.
I’m not sure I’d go so far as to say I “crave feedback.” I do believe that constructive “criticism” from people you know you can trust can help you over a lot of obstacles. But it’s important to remember that even your most trusted family members, friends, and business associates don’t have all the answers either.
But the key thing is, they might have exactly the right answer to your problem. Because they might have already been through what you’re going through. So, they can help you avoid the worst pitfalls and save you lots of time.
I read an article about a former reality TV series called “Stars Earn Stripes.” It was written by a former military special operations professional who was paired withworld famous Olympic gold medal skier, Picabo Street, to compete in various mission scenarios. The military guy said he was “astonished at how intensely she desired constructive feedback, constantly pursuing perfection. I guess that’s how you win gold medals!”
Yes, I’d say that, AND a strong desire to follow through on your Vision and your dreams, is gold medal performance.
And that’s why the very first lessons in RondaReady YOUniversity are designed to help you discover your Vision. And they can help you focus your energy in the direction you’d actually like to go. Your Vision is probably the total opposite of a celebrity skier.
But you still need strategies to help you know how to get there.
YOUniversity could be just what you’re looking for. I don’t guarantee that because, as I said, I don’t have ALL the answers. But how about we talk about it some more? Book a free call with me, with that handy calendar below. And give me a chance to see where you wanna go in life. I’d love to help YOU if I can. Let’s talk soon.
