The lens through which you choose to see your life experiences determines the quality of life you live.
And every single time you experience something you get to choose anew your response to said experience.
But only every single time.
Feedback is a highly effective way to grow ourselves and to positively impact the lives of those around us, both professionally and personally.
Too often we receive and give feedback from a negative emotional space. When on the receiving end we don’t want to hear something we perceive to be a negative judgement against us. When giving we have often already passed judgement against the other person and our feedback is couched in negative energy.
Feedback, however, is nothing more than information that allows you to evaluate how you’re doing.
Instead of judging the information, receive and give feedback neutrally and with love.
If you’re receiving what you perceive to be negative energy, just ask yourself if it’s your issue or whether it belongs to the person delivering the information?
And once you’ve neutrally received the feedback, how you want to use it is entirely up to you! When we stay in neutrality around the exchange of information — leaving emotions out of it — we can more-readily see the possibilities of how that information might be of benefit.
Remember, it’s just information — how might that improve and/or shift your reception and delivery of feedback?
