Ever noticed how we are quick to accept praise from others but equally as quick to take offence when they criticise us?

I came across the following quote from Nicky Gumbel about this:

When people praise you, don’t let it go to your head. When they criticize you, don’t let it get to your heart.

It’s true isn’t it, we need to keep our feet firmly on the ground when we receive praise and when we receive criticism. If we manage that, we can

So accept praise and criticism equally, and make sure we learn and grow from our experiences – that may even mean we have to change in order to improve ourselves.
