You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It is a weakness to get caught up in either one.The above quotation is by John Wooden. I was much impressed with it when I read it for the first time. The world is like that, it will either praise you or criticize you but a prudent and wise person should not be affected by that and should not take it on its face value. If others praise you or criticize you then it is their assessment and their outlook. Their comments are based on their knowledge and prudence. It is not conclusive of what you have done. You know what you did and how effective was it. Keep yourself detached with their reactions and remarks and be on your own.
