Are you sure that you are taking criticism from the right people?

Remember that time when your friends grouped around you and started giving you relationship advice?

Yeah…completely filter it out of your system.

Now now its not as confusing as you think.

And I am pretty sure that your friends have your best interest at heart.

BUT …if there is one thing you should avoid then that’s “information overload”.

Think about this for a second…there is only so much information that your brain can process.

When it comes to taking advice you should think about quality not quanitity.

Let me give you an example.

Meet the English Football captain John Terry:

He is widely considered one of the best English footballers to have ever played…but lately he has been going through a rough patch.

He hasn’t been playing at the level that everyone is used to seeing him play which is why he has been facing tons of criticism.

One day after a match during a press conference he was asked about the amount of criticism that he has been facing and how he has been dealing with them.

What he said next is one of the most poignant things I have ever heard in my life and something that I want you to implement starting now.

He says that when he hears criticism from his peers or players that he has played alongside and respects, he would take them on his stride and implement as much as possible.

But he always ignores advice from players who have never played at a high level throughout their career.

“I’ve come under criticism, individually, from certain players and individuals, players I’ve looked up to and played alongside. I’ve taken that on the chin… When others speak, maybe I don’t take it on the chin.”

And that’s the very essence of a good advice taker.

You must KNOW who to take these lessons from.

Think about this….if you take relationship advice from someone who has never had a stable relationship do you think it will work?

If you take health advice from someone who is obese do you think its ever going to work?

How well do you think it will work for a basketball team if they hire a basketball coach who has never played the game in his life?

When I was first creating this program,…my friend asked me a question.

Marg…you have never been divorced so how can you create a program from divorcees…how can you give them relationship advice if you have never gone through that hell?

And I told her: “That is exactly why I can create the best program possible for them.”

Because I have been fortunate enough to be in a happy marriage…I know what works and what doesn’t work.

I know what work you need to put in to make sure that your marriage can withstand any sort of strain.

In my program I will show you why you can put your trust in me and get the best possible advice possible when it comes to looking and also maintaining a healthy and happy relationship.

In the next article I will give you a more in depth look into my program.

Until then…ciao!!
