What To Do About Criticism and Negative Feedback If You're An Artist?

If you're asking yourself this question, you're not alone! Just about every artist that I've ever met has to talked to me about this. What to do? Short answer NOTHING! Most artists; especially when we're starting out - we tend to look, want, and almost beg for feedback (positive feedback to make it more clear). 

We tend to hide under the umbrella of the 'I'm just looking for feedback to see if my work is any good' thing! Look, you're as good as you need to be right were you are!!! I give you my blessing and permission to suck and suck and then get better. 

Most of us are begging for positive feedback because we don't really believe in what we do. And the reason we don't believe in what we do is because we're not committed enough to it. Other people and artists feel the same way about themselves...and try to get rid of that feeling by handing it over to you. Don't take it...is a TRAP! 

Now you know, so that next time you hear something negative headed your way; just step aside, it's not for you. You don't have to take it.
