In this podcast Episode, David & Caron Loveless discuss 6 ways you benefit from accepting feedback.

Here is a brief summary of today’s episode of “The Live True Podcast.” You can use this as a reference or reminder of key things you feel like you need to pay attention to or pass on to others, in the next 7 days of your life.
Even as sharp and “self-aware” as we think we are, (and let’s face it, most of us feel this way about ourselves) other people aren’t as invested in us as we are so they can be more objective about how we’re coming across.
We always want to see ourselves in the best light so we internally block ourselves from believing negative feedback.

But, often, it takes a showdown or crisis to pry us open to hearing how we actually come across. It’s after we’ve been let go from our job or lost a friend or exited a marriage that the slap stings enough to wake us up to important issues we refused to see.
