How does it feel to be criticized? Even when you invite it, it’s still sometimes hard to take. You say, “I welcome your comments,” and when someone does…it still stings a bit.
I recently heard a speaker, with a quote he attributed to Aristotle, lay out the three things you need to do to never feel the pain of a critical comment.
Here they are in a nutshell. Oh, and here’s who actually said it.
PS: To celebrate 100 episodes, I’m going to hold a virtual AMA – an “Ask Me Anything” session – for that particular video. I’ll be looking through all the comments you’ve left for the first 99 videos, and grabbing any really good questions you might have and answering them. You can also “ask me anything” via email: just send your question to me, at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the letters AMA in the subject line. I’ll try to answer all the questions I get – and it can be about anything you want to know about: VO, acting, on-camera presence, internet marketing, productivity, radio, TV, film, even the process and products I use to put out these videos.

Hope this helps!
