Criticism and negativity from other people are like a wall. If you focus on them, you will run right into them. You’ll get blocked by negative emotions, anger, and self-doubt. Your mind will go where your attention is focused.
Criticism and negativity don’t prevent you from reaching the finish line, but they can certainly distract you from it.
However, if you focus on the road in front of you and on moving forward, then you can safely speed past the walls and barriers that are nearby.
