Dear Entrepreneur,

You should know how to effectively deal with disapproval and criticism. As an entrepreneur, especially a successful one, you will meet a lot of disapproval and criticism along the way. You can never please everyone, and that’s the bitter truth.

So, don’t allow the approval or disapproval of others to unduly influence you.

When you meet people’s approval, let it encourage you, but don’t let it get into your head. Work harder. Same thing with disapproval. Don’t send it in a downward spiral. Instead, see rejection for what it truly is. It’s simply the opinion of someone else.

They may know what they are talking about, or they may not.

Wake up every day, and try as much as possible to be the best you can be that day, and grow as much as you possibly can. When rejection, criticism or disapproval come, greet it with a smile, and move on. You’ll be fine as long as you work with a kind heart.

With love,
