If you are feeling stuck, today’s message could be very important.
I recently got challenged on something I think I am pretty good at.
My initial reaction was to be offended, and think “that person doesn’t know what he is talking about! Who does he think he is?!?”
Being too proud to accept constructive criticism, however, is not something I want to be.
I realized that this person had good points, and what they were saying was valid. I am going to work on improving in this area.
The experience got me to thinking about the fact that others challenging us can be uncomfortable. But a lot of the time, it’s exactly what we need to grow.
