A strong person takes both compliments and criticism graciously. For they know that it takes both sunshine and rain for a flower to grow.
“Learners need endless feedback more than they need endless teaching.” – Grant Wiggins
“We all need people who give us feedback. That’s how we improve.” – Bill Gates
“Be open to growth. When people stop giving you feedback, start to worry.” – Amanda Pouchot
“Feedback is the breakfast of champions.” – Ken Blanchard
“If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?” – Rumi
On the other side, I try to remember to make sure my feedback is helpful, specific, and said in a kind way. A goal of mine is to work on being better at accepting my spouse’s feedback – or better yet, asking for it on a regular basis! People who give you feedback are people who love you.
