By now, you should know that I love blogging (and that’s why Ding-Neng.com is here), and that I also love to read popular blogs in my niche. And I had a very special encounter yesterday while i was reading my online friends’ blogs and I wanted to share it with you today.
Whenever I have time, I would go read other popular blogs online to gain more information and new tips to grow my own blog, and i would usually visit FindMyBlogWay.com and YoungPrePro.com for new blogging tips 🙂 If you want to know how to grow your blog faster, and be a pro-blogger, these are 2 blogs i highly recommend, by Lye (FindMyBlogWay) and Onibalusi (YoungPrePro).
And just yesterday, 2 of my favorite bloggers blog about a very similar, and yet insightful topic, which I feel that it is very important for anyone to know if they want to become successful. Very hardly i read 2 similar posts from 2 different blogs are about the same time, so i decide the feature these 2 blog posts here, so you can read them, and I think they deserved to be mentioned.
As you look at the title, “If You Can’t Handle This, You Can’t Be Successful.”
What is “This” am I talking about here?
I’m referring to ‘Criticisms‘.
Okay. Now, you may look at me and say… “Ah, I thought what. It’s just criticisms…zzz”
Yes. I’m like you too. I used to thought that Criticisms are nothing! but i can tell you that when criticisms come, you might not be able to take it. After all, who likes to be criticized? We all like to be praised, don’t we?
However, what I’m going to tell you, is that if you can’t handle criticisms, you can’t be successful. If you always want to be praised, you can’t be successful. In other words, if you want to be successful, you must learn how to handle criticisms, and understand that you won’t get praises all the time!
And that is what I’m going to share with you what my 2 favorite bloggers wrote about in their blog.
Lye talked about why being successful will lose you readers, and he also explains why it wouldn’t matter much to you too. If you’re going to be a A-list blogger, a Top-notch blogger in your niche, I’m sure you’re going to lose some of your readers, and maybe hated by them too. Now, if you don’t know why you will lose your readers if you’re successful, i would prefer you to read Lye’s blog post here to get a full understanding of it (read only if you want to be successful 🙂
Now that you understand that you will lose some of your readers if you are successful. But do you know you will be hated as well, and maybe even get hated mails from online peeps too? This is very crucial as many people fail because they can’t handle criticism, and their success are being impeded by the unsuccessful people who hate to see them succeed. Oni has written a very good blog post on “How to deal with criticisms as an Entrepreneur” and I would prefer you to read it (and read only if you want to be successful 🙂
These 2 blog posts strengthened me overnight and of course, even after reading it, it still depends on how I handle criticisms myself (or if they are worthy to be handled).
So go over and read it now, and I believe when you come back to this post again, you will be reading the title as “I Can Handle Criticisms, I Can Be Successful“
