#2 The fear of Criticism
summarized from Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
“Most people are at least very uncomfortable when criticized.”
“This fear robs people of their:
- destroys their power of imagination;
- limits their individuality;
- takes away their self-reliance
and does them damage in hundred other ways.”
“One’s nearest relatives are often the worst offenders.“
“It should be recognized as a crime…for any parent to build inferiority complexes in the mind of a child through unnecessary criticism.”
“Employers who understand human nature get the best there is out of people not by criticism but by constructive suggestion.”
“Parents may accomplish the same results with their children.”
“Criticism will plant fear or resentment in the human heart but it will not build love or affection.”
…the fear of ill health should be covered next if my maths serves me right.
