There is really no such thing as negative feedback. Though we tend to get defensive about feedback, especially from those that love, it would be in our best interest to just listen. The very thing that we perceive as "negative" is likely the character flaw or point of weakness that will hurt us later on in life. Therefore, not listening can be costly.

As friends, we also have a responsibility to those we love to share how we perceive them and point out potential areas of growth. Your personal perceptions and feelings are valid; they are what you see and feel. The challenge for us is to communicate them in a way that is supportive instead of judgmental. One strategy for doing that is always addressing the behavior and not the individual.

Live purposefully!

Jullien's Purpose Statement

My purpose is to help as many people as possible reach their full potential by helping them making a living doing what they love and in the process of doing so achieve my own. I want to do this through writing, speaking, and creating offline and online spaces that facilitate conversations around purpose.
