The world is full of critics!
For every person out there doing something amazing there are dozens of people who feel it is their responsibility to make a comment about it.
From family members to the news we watch on TV, there are more people commenting on life than living it.
Even right now, I know there is someone reading this thinking, “man he should have said that this way…”
It has become a universal past time all around the world and every TV and hand held device is loaded with this kind of thinking. Sadly, criticism is bad — both bad for health and is the most heartless thing we can do.
Let’s face it, critics aren’t really people like you and me who have to wake up, every day, get clear on our purpose, call up the energy and courage and go forth and truly live that purpose in our careers, relationships and health choices. Critics are just commenters, not “livers.”
I know, you’re saying “but I give my children and friends constructive criticism, it’s all good!” and to that I say “Ya, right!” If they did not specifically ask you for your constructive opinion of their life, your foisting in on them is just heartless and cruel.
So who is your worst critic? Is it a family member? A boss? You?
If you could see what is happening energetically when you are critical of another or yourself, you would never do it again.
Energetically, criticism closes the heart and disconnects you in a violent way from whomever you are being critical of, including yourself. If your goal is the trifecta of you feeling like crap, making the other person feel like crap, and making an enemy in the process, stick with being critical of them.

Really living your purpose takes courage. Being critical of someone else only looks like courage, but it is the opposite. Courage “does”, fear comments from afar, and “does not.”
You want to help someone do something better? Have the courage not to criticize them when everyone else would, instead love them for who they are, not what they do. Then, if you really have a strong opinion of what should happen, and you have the ability to do it, be what you want to see in the world and you won’t have time to be a critic of anybody.
Your actions will speak much louder than your words. Let people choose to follow your example. If you are not a good example, don’t bother being critical of anyone else, they won’t listen.
Wayne Dyer said, “It is not your opinion that makes a difference in the world, it is your commitments and actions”
I love you all, just the way you are! I am proud of you and I am in awe of all you have accomplished. I am also amazed at how you have dealt with failure and disappointment in your lives as you make very difficult choices. If my life can stand as an inspiration for you, great, if not, I am happy just to be your friend.
