Criticism is like a sound which wakes you up from your pleasant dreamsSometimes we get very pleasant dreams while sleeping and we do not wish to wake up so that we can keep on enjoying the dream but then suddenly some disturbance or noise wakes us up and we come back to the reality which is not as pleasant as our dream.
Similarly sometimes when we feel that we are doing good work and it is being liked and appreciated by others we tend to get into pleasant dream frame of mind and start believing that everything is going fine and nothing can go wrong. But then sometimes suddenly we get some criticism and our pleasure ride gets obstructed. We get down to the ground and start thinking about what went wrong and what needs to be done to improve it. So here criticism breaks our dream journey of success and brings us back to the ground and makes us rethink as to how can things be done in a better way. In a way, it helps us to take our tasks even more seriously and realize our mistakes.
So criticism is like a sound or disturbance which wakes us from our pleasant dreams and brings us to reality. It also makes us realize that however well we do the things it may still go wrong and there is always a scope of improvement.
So criticism is necessary to keep us tied to the ground.
