During this time you may come across people who don’t quite understand what it is you’re going after. These are the people who find it easy to criticize you and be negative about what you’re trying to achieve.
You may be fed negative thoughts that you’re crazy, it’s a stupid idea, or who are you to be doing this. In reality, the people who are telling you these negative thoughts are simply voicing their own fears and beliefs about themselves.
When you dare to go after your dreams you may be surprised to find that the people you thought would support you actually say negative comments.

They would rather try and hold you back from going after your dreams with negative comments. But, you can’t let that stop you.
Here are six tips to help you overcome negative criticism so that you can go after your dreams.
These negative comments actually have nothing to do with you. Other people see you going after what you want in life and they get jealous. All because they are letting fear keep them from going after their own dreams. They just want to bring you down in hopes that it makes themselves feel better.

Some people may want to push their beliefs onto you. They may think something is dreadful when you think it’s absolutely beautiful. You do not have to take on their beliefs.

Most of all believe in yourself and the work you are doing.

While this can bring tons of raving fans it can also attract others who want to bring you down. Remember, negative criticism is proof that you’re on the right path.
When you stand up for something and show up in a way that makes others think this can cause other people to say that they don’t agree with you or what you’re doing.

Go after your dreams and what you believe in.
