While it might be difficult to hear and take in, let the hurt feelings and manner of the message go, and ask yourself what you can learn from it, if you can, and how it might make you even better at what you do. This can be at work, in your relationships, or in anything that matters to you.
Take the message and not the messenger in many instances, and you will learn a great deal. None of us is without room for improvement, and if we choose not to be defensive, to take the meaningful messages out, and to let the negative and hurt feelings go, we can only move closer toward success.
A dose of humor is the perfect way to celebrate Turkey Day. Get a kick out of these funny Thanksgiving quotes from TV shows and movies.
