    How Should We Give and Receive Constructive Criticism?

    in Romance

    All people benefit from an awareness of flaws, willingness to change, and growth in positive directions. It's important to be able to hear the positive advice within constructive criticism to find this awareness and power to change. There are many approaches to giving constructive criticism, such as tough love, positive reinforcement, shock statements, and motivational talk.

    What approaches are the most beneficial? Does it vary based on the person or situation? Some people may need to be slapped in the face information-wise while others may need a softer touch. A possible downside of a harsher approach may be that people can't hear the positive side because they get offended. Thus, once they hear something critical, they may stop listening! And the very thing that could help them is what they detest and reject defensively.

    Regardless of the approach, how can people better receive constructive criticism? What can you do to listen for the deeper meaning and identify the positive advice that you can apply to your own life? How can we be more open to having our flaws exposed by others without getting defensive? And do we need both approaches?

    Facing Criticism in the Oil Industry

    in Lifestyle

    All of us who have spent any time in the oilfield have endured criticism of some sort.  Usually it stems from environmental purposes, and from lack of education.  As a family, we have moved more times then we should following the industry, and have endured an awful lot of rejection and negative behavior, just simply because of our career choice.  For example, when we first moved into the boom town that we currently reside in, cost of living was a direct reflection of oilfield judgment.  Rent is outrageous, and the first question they ask before you are even allowed to look at a home, is if you are oilfield.  If you reply yes, rent seems to go up, or the deposite is higher.  If you want to take your camper to the local campground for a vacation, they assume you are oilfield looking for living accommodations in their facility and the price goes up.  I may be just an average person, but I cant help but wonder, why on earth, any of that should matter... as if oilfield money is dirty or something... money is money, it spends the same no matter where it comes from.  This episode is going to focus on how we handle these uncomfortable situations.  Take the time to listen, add to the conversation by joining our live chat, or email at gypsylyn@hotmail.com , tell me your story or input on the subject and I will do my best to incorporate it into our program. Also, feel free to send a shout out to anyone who may be listening!!

    Self-deprecation: Hiding Your Light

    in Spirituality

    Back by popular demand, tonight's show is a re-broadcast about self-hatred or self-loathing. If we can limit people’s capacity to see us, we can hide the beacon we truly are. For many of us, this tendency stems from a shy or wounded inner child. Tune in this week as Nancy Herold and I discuss suppressed sensitivities because of our personal life experiences. Self-criticism is supported by internal self-talk, which brings to awareness our negative self-judgments. Many of us have honed his internal critic because of the judgment we received from others. Tonight’s show is about healing our inner critic. During this show we’re taking the blinders off and making a conscious effort to reframe our self-talk. The Soul’s Intent is for us to stand in our own light so we can naturally fulfill that which we came here to do.
