I just got brave and published my first two books. I got mainly great reviews on Amazon but I just got a horrendous, hateful, mean spirited review today. it was an anonymous review so I have no way to know who it was. I so appreciate this wisdom. Im getting back in "THE ARENA" writing my next book. NO time to waste.

Reply October 10, 2016 at 9:40 am that quote made me want to shed a tear 😭 Reply October 18, 2016 at 5:52 pm I just finished a new short film, a local news writer asked me for the story and criticized my whole career in filmmaking. Here is the article. http://www.greatfallstribune.com/story/news/local/2016/10/16/another-spooky-film-great-falls-gerald-bickel/91882852/ Reply October 23, 2016 at 12:48 am yeah!others think I am a bitch a druggie!!with all the tarts!!but I'm not !!also they assume I'm not intelligent!!it's hard,u know! Reply October 23, 2016 at 12:49 am tattoos is what I mean! Reply October 23, 2016 at 8:53 am you looks like "monica belluci" in this outfit and your suggestion is very well Reply November 8, 2016 at 5:13 am First time I'm on your channel Maria and I already love it. Me and my friends are artists, we face criticism almost on a monthly basis – mostly from people whose only seen our work for a couple minutes and points out what we did wrong and what we SHOULD do to make it look right. I am no fan of critics – I am very bitter if some stranger I've never met before starts talking negatively about my work – some are worth taking in, some we just think that they have an attitude or a problem with our work and how it looks. It breaks my self esteem as an artist, and I get extremely defensive like it's an animal instinct. Watching this video in particular is helping me a lot and I will gladly share this with my friends and through my social media sites. Thank you for this wonderful advice! 🙂 Reply November 11, 2016 at 10:44 am ok love Reply November 21, 2016 at 5:14 pm as batman says: It's not who I am underneath, but it's what I do that defines me. Reply November 29, 2016 at 1:39 am Excellent video, you are right about every thing your saying Marie. Great work 😀 I subscribed to you're channel and gave you a like. 🙂 Reply December 11, 2016 at 2:06 pm racist, it's never white chocolate. Jk nice video haha Reply December 23, 2016 at 11:37 pm How awesome Reply December 26, 2016 at 6:11 pm Thanks, I needed those words of encouragement today! Reply January 9, 2017 at 6:18 am This is just such a damn good video. I saw it a while back and it was definitely worth another view. Thanks Marie, you rock. Reply January 10, 2017 at 2:01 pm I was feeling a bit consumed by a bit a sharp comment I received this morning (I don't think it was really meant in a mean way I just took it to heart and started ruminating on it!). This video has stopped my overthinking in it's tracks! Reply January 13, 2017 at 9:37 pm I swear this Marie Forleo is the same one who is also a fitness instructor. I once got a fitness DVD with her in it, in a Women's Health magazine. I love you, Marie! Reply January 15, 2017 at 9:04 am thanks a lot ^_^ Reply January 27, 2017 at 5:49 am "judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are" knew it, love it, great reminder… Reply February 7, 2017 at 3:50 pm omg the dark chocolate crying!!! so hilarious marie lol Reply February 19, 2017 at 4:54 pm """The majority of the time people who are the harshest critics are creative cowards""" ENOUGH SAID!!👌👌👌 Reply February 23, 2017 at 2:55 am I love her posture and how lovely she is. I absolutely love the color of that dress as well. Reply February 24, 2017 at 1:43 am yes needed to hear this Reply March 7, 2017 at 4:24 am The worst thing about people who criticize you for being different is the fact that they'd ALWAYS expect you to believe everything they say and that everything is your fault, lest they confirm their negative opinions even more. Let's say you're in college but still watch Spongebob at your dorm. If someone criticizes you over that, it's obvious that the criticizer has problems with you due to a totally different opinion, but said criticizer expects you to believe and acknowledge otherwise; that the criticism is 100% justified and watching Spongebob at college is just as unacceptable as vandalizing public property or something (apologies if I potentially exaggerated). According to that logic, criticizing another solely because of a different opinion will magically make the criticizer's opinion a consensus. Of all my experiences being on the ugly receiving end of criticism to date, none of them ever came forth to me and admitted to being overly critical of something that isn't that socially unacceptable to begin with. Unless watching Spongebob at college can get you expelled, no one has the right to criticize over a little thing like that. Reply March 7, 2017 at 4:33 am It seems nowadays we're more criticized for being different than being obvious jerks. Any form of discomfort from someone having a different opinion than yours is beyond your control, but criticizing the other person over it isn't. Reply March 8, 2017 at 6:24 pm getting used to it now Reply March 10, 2017 at 7:34 pm so true. I just posted a video on youtube and someone I know well says its kindergarden types and very bad and it affected me. Your video really helped me. Thanks 🙂 Reply March 16, 2017 at 2:04 pm Hey Marie, I absotely love your channel and it inspires me with ever video, thank you! 🙂 I have also shared my thoghts on this topic in my channel "how to deal with negative people and or criticism". I feel it is something we can all learn from . Love and light Reply March 20, 2017 at 9:09 pm THank you Reply March 22, 2017 at 6:29 am Yes my neighbor In my apt. he tried too over come me by yelling and cussing at me for some dumb reason, told him too leave, so he hit me. I can`t win for losing!!! Reply March 22, 2017 at 6:37 am And I love your sense of humour you see REAL humour anymore. thnx, just watching your videos putz me n a good place, we r good gifted people, I`m going to start being myself again like good people advize me too do, instead of keeping my head n the sand. I`m so streessed Reply March 25, 2017 at 7:31 pm awesome Reply March 28, 2017 at 4:31 am I realize when someone criticises me and I thought he/she is a critical person, I am criticising him/her too. It's like a circle that is never ended. Reply April 25, 2017 at 10:21 pm RULE # 1 : Never listen to criticism, because it might teach you something about yourself.RULE # 2 : Ignore all criticism, because it might empower you with self-knowledge, and if there is anything you don't want to learn anything about, it is your self.RULE # 3: When someone criticizes you, never think about how it might apply to you, never question whether there's any truth to it, because that might lead to an increased awareness of your flaws and weaknesses, and that awareness might lead to growth and self-improvement. SO in summary: Never actually listen to criticism, and you will never learn, and you will never grow. This video is the perfect advice for everyone who just wants to remain in a state of ignorance, and keep repeating the same mistakes over and over and over and over again.

I'm a writer, and there's pretty much nothing more painful than eliciting little response or critical response from a reader of your fiction or poetry. One wishes to be great at one's art, wishes to touch others, and it's very hard to know sometimes what to do upon receiving mere lack of enthusiasm for something you sweated over. Just saying. Reply July 17, 2017 at 7:36 pm what I usually do is try to fix that which is being criticized…but there's always something new …so I have to be always working and working to better my self …feels like a slow process …but I know someday I will see the result Reply July 24, 2017 at 1:52 am What if a woman reacted to a comment by acting like a total psychopathic narcissist? by gaining as much people (her flying monkeys) on her side to completely destroy and take down the commenter? professionally, financially, emotionally, their character, and reputation? this lasted for 4 years! what does that say about this woman? Reply July 25, 2017 at 11:25 am Marie, you are the best! I love your videos and all the knowledge that we learn from you! Keep doing an amazing job and inspiring people! Reply August 14, 2017 at 6:22 pm So glad to hear your not a huge fan of chocolate. People look at me like I am a three headed monster when I tell them I do not like chocolate. Know I know I am in excellent company!!! Reply August 29, 2017 at 10:42 pm Thank you very much for this encouragement. For me, I found hearing criticism from family members has been the worst wounds to heal. But now for several years, the way I learn to move past the judgment is by talking to King Jesus, my God about this and expressing the pain as I face it. Then, I listen for the perspective of what God thinks and read scripture and it always frees me from the oppression spirit or what I heard. So, my faith and hearing the voice of God heals me and renews me. People will always have opinions because they cannot see what God sees who knows everything about me and what my life is like and why I go left instead of right for instance.

It's sort of fringe so they are discussing me and that's why I am watching this video. I was trying to hide my bangs but now I will not. Because they are not actually bad but people are just resistant to it. Reply November 24, 2017 at 8:27 pm Great video, by far one of my favorites even though all of them are good. Reply December 13, 2017 at 10:09 pm good stufff Reply December 18, 2017 at 10:02 pm this lady is so beautiful Reply January 9, 2018 at 1:51 pm Great Effort !!! Its REally Admirable !!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!!!!!!! Reply January 9, 2018 at 4:41 pm I don't think Pink's song was about romantic relationships. I love that song and it's on my "power morning" list. It's an awesome anthem for kicking ass at pretty much anything. Reply January 10, 2018 at 10:49 pm You know what I did to get back on the horse, watched your video! Thank you so so much for this video! After being harshly accused of doing more than I should have regarding something today, and after busting my butt doing the work, with the intention of just doing a good job, I was feeling pretty low. Truth be told, I'm still feeling a little upset but your video provided some tools to help me come out of this funk. Reply January 20, 2018 at 9:46 pm I always face harsh criticism from my family in my home every day Reply January 23, 2018 at 7:33 pm This is great and fantastic and wonderful and I need to see more of this. Thank you! Reply January 25, 2018 at 4:05 am Take the dislikes on the video as a perfect example. Shaking my head after this video is made for haters they agree Reply February 11, 2018 at 4:12 pm Marie you rock 🙈 Reply February 26, 2018 at 3:14 am I hate chocolate!! Reply March 5, 2018 at 5:03 am It is difficult to deal with ppl who constantly criticize you, especially in a project. You need this bitch to provide you information, but no matter what you do she can always always criticize you, even she is not sure if I am doing anything wrong, but she always assume I am wrong, and criticize me… Reply March 10, 2018 at 4:29 pm That Roosevelt quote is one of my favorites, along with, "You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there's still going to be someone who hates peaches." Reply April 7, 2018 at 7:54 pm I’ve got so many criticism from people where I’d get labels because I’ve had some difficulties in education and now a mainstream. They still say stuff that I don’t have like or you are autistic, disabled, you couldn’t speak when you’re so young, you stutter, you can’t make friends etc. People believe I still have communication difficulties because of my history with my parents. This offends me. Reply April 26, 2018 at 9:46 pm The universe must have been knocking on my brain because right before I had coffee with a friend who told me I was “out of my mind” and “too old” (I’m 46 🙄) I had watched your video on learning from your haters with Gary V. I came back home and watched some great inspirational success stories that motivated me 1000x more than the hurtful critique did. You’re a wonderful addition to my entrepreneurial journey Marie. Thank you. You’ll see me next year at B School.

Reply July 26, 2018 at 3:59 am I just turn a deaf ear to critics. There is usually some jealousy or insecurity going on. Love the Roosevelt quote. Next time somebody is dogging on you, consider the source. Reply August 10, 2018 at 3:19 pm wow i love how that song sounds! and this tips are really mature, most people don't want to be criticized and act like childs when it happens Reply August 11, 2018 at 6:10 pm you could just take criticism, and use it to learn. Reply September 5, 2018 at 5:49 am your video is so motivating Reply November 6, 2018 at 9:33 pm Wow very beautiful woman Reply November 26, 2018 at 1:26 am This amazing video really did help me feel better Thanks a lot❤️🌹 Reply February 2, 2019 at 6:33 pm Thank you for this! Reply February 12, 2019 at 5:51 pm I get back on the horse but it triggers an immediate sadness that I may not be good enough for the role. Reply February 17, 2019 at 7:09 am When i got criticism on my guitar cover of a song, i just searched on YouTube"how to take criticism positively " and jumped to your video. Now, i overcame it and think I'm gonna be more stronger the next time… So thank u Reply April 3, 2019 at 8:04 pm Thank you. Reply April 5, 2019 at 3:40 pm I know this video is literally six years old which is why probably no one's going to read this, but thank you. I really, really needed to hear this, so I guess I just wanted to leave a tiny comment that I'm grateful for this video. It really helped and people clearly don't support others enough. Reply April 27, 2019 at 3:44 am Thank you…It helped a lot ❤ Reply May 2, 2019 at 4:30 pm You win the award for woman who wears turquoise best in the universe too Reply July 4, 2019 at 7:13 am Thanks i needed this. I got constructive criticism turned angy hurtful all incompecing opinions that were just so off the mark. At least I'm trying. Reply August 18, 2019 at 4:03 pm great go on Reply August 19, 2019 at 9:19 pm I get criticism all the time it's hard because I know that my sister looks down on me and she doesn't hide it, however i love her very much, so I just try to act like I didn't hear it, most of the time it works. I just hope she knows her brother still loves her.and would never say or do any thing to intentionally hurt her. Reply August 23, 2019 at 1:37 pm Criticism is the necessary feedback you need to grow as a person. To refuse or ignore criticism, is to stop your personal development and make sure you will never learn, grow, or improve.
