Handling Criticism – “No matter what you say or do to me” – How to change your state of mind…
Handling criticism from others isn’t always easy for everyone but you can learn to deal with it in a resourceful way, that makes you feel good about yourself.
You don’t have to give other people the power over you to make you feel bad.
In fact that’s just a bad habit you picked up along the way.
A “criticism” of you or anything else is just an opinion someone has expressed about what they are experiencing.
It’s not really about you.
Henry David Thoreau once said:
“Your criticism of others reflect your weaknesses , not theirs”
This is because the only meaning anything ever has is the meaning you give it.
You don’t have to accept what other people make things mean for you.
You can even decide what things “mean” for yourself without requiring other people to agree with you.
This is is especially important when it comes to you thinking positively about yourself and building high self esteem.
You can do this by learning how to change your state of mind and handling criticism with something called “reframing”.
Reframing is an NLP technique that helps you change the meanings other people try to make about situations or about you personally.
This puts you in a position where you can change your state of mind, build your self esteem , and keep your personal power regardless of the external criticism.
Watch the video above as NLP master and licensed trainer Jackey Backman explains how YOU can change your state of mind and start handling criticism resourcefully.

Hey Jackey – another great video. Watching it gave me an idea for a possible future video. Perhaps you could share a technique that could be used when offering guidance or “criticism” to a highly educated individual who already recognizes they are worthwhile and, in fact, is not able to acknowledge any weakness they may have. So the opposite of what this video addresses really. Is there a way for highly confident people to keep their minds open and to be receptive to the fact that sometimes, they might learn something valuable through constructive criticism?
Thanks so much for these videos! Love them.
Hey Alyce! Great topic, a little tricky because we need to identify the motivators for this “closed” behaviour but I’m pretty certain I can nail it for you in a short video!! Keep your eyes open it’ll be out in the next couple of months!
