I've received some criticism in the past couple of weeks in a few different situations.  This has caused me to step back and reflect on how I handle criticism.  Although I tend to get quite defensive when people criticize me, I've actually been pleasantly surprised by how I've reacted.

In this video blog I talk about criticism and offer some thoughts, ideas, and tips for how we can handle it more effectively...as well as ways to not let the fear of being criticized stop us from putting ourselves out there, taking risks, and going for what we truly want.

Check out the video (http://mike-robbins.com/how-do-you-handle-criticism/) and feel free to leave a comment on my blog about it. And, if there are people in your life or your social networks whom you think would resonate with this message, you're welcome to share it with them.
