Criticism and feedback in business is to be expected and welcomed, if we are to learn anything we need to step outside of ourselves and be willing to receive feedback.
Once in a while in business, however, you might receive criticism from parties that are more of a distraction than useful feedback. This often comes from individuals who don’t really care about your sector or even have any experience in what you are doing but are very quick to offer observations which can sometimes stifle your growth, confidence and progress. If you spend too much time dwelling on the feedback you become distracted, confused and demotivated. Try to filter out the useful and the constructive critique from those who are simply energy sappers.
