Drown Out Critical Voices

This is an important skill: the ability to ignore critical voices when they’re destructive.

One of my greatest pet peeves is negative critical people. Whenever you set out to do something great in life, there will be negative destructive critics. If you’re going to be a great business person, coach, student, leader or employee, there will be opposition. The more success you have, the more opportunities there will be for distractions. The higher you go, the more haters will come out. 

When you start stretching to a new level and pursuing what has placed in your heart, the jealous people, the critical people, and the small-minded people come out of the woodwork and start making negative comments, but you don’t have to let that distract you. If you feel under pressure, if the critical voices are coming against you, know that it’s because you are making a difference. Don’t let them throw you off course. 

Today, instead off letting negative critical voices pull you down, dig your heels in, set your face like a flint, and say, “I will not get distracted. I will not get drawn into battles that don’t matter. It doesn’t matter what others think; it matters what thinks!” Today, look beyond the critics. Stand strong in adversity. Press forward to what lies ahead and win the prize of life that He has prepared for you!

“Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise”¦”

(Micah 7:8, NIV)?

Pray With Me
Yahweh, today I choose to let go of the negative voices, offenses and hurts from critical voices. Father, I choose to focus on You and the good plan You have for me. God, please give me Your peace and joy, as I move forward in the victory You have prepared for me, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
