We are the creature of emotions so we feel bad being criticized. Today I'm going to share some proven ways to deal with criticism, it requires patience and practice to master. I'll be picking some of the famous quotes from the Evergreen book of Dale Carnegie "How to stop worrying and start living". So let's start our today's article journey of "How to deal with criticism"
1. Take it as a disguised compliment
There is a very famous saying that nobody kicks a dead dog which means if you're being criticized by someone if means that you're doing something different. You just have to change your perspective towards the opinions of your enemies. Don't feel bad just remember one thing when you get criticized

You may have understood what I'm going to say. Criticism revels the character of the person, what he thinks about you. It reassures you that you're on a right path. But not always the person is jealous of you. Sometimes S/he might be doing it to fuel motivation in you or for your good. Choose your friends wisely it plays an important role in one's life.
