Non Constructive Criticism

non constructive criticism negative comment

I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and I learned good stuff.

These are comments that published regularly on social media. What is the difference between non-constructive criticism and constructive criticism ? Ask yourself this question : « Does this criticism have the will to help me ? ». If you don’t feel the will to help you, it’s like 95% of critics, it’s someone who criticizes just to criticize. These non-constructive criticisms based on an extremely superficial analysis of your content.

These people read the first 5 lines of an article, listen to the first 2 minutes of a podcast, watch the 2 first minutes of a video or read only the title.

When you publish content on internet, you’ll have people who will afford advice on what you do when they haven’t taken time to really understand, to analyze what you mean. It’s known that in communication there is an huge loss of the message’s meaning between what you mean, what you say, what people hear, what people understand and what people remember.

There is also an important factor is that in all areas, beginners have an opinion on everything and they say it. Does this give them a false sense of competence on topics they don’t master ? Yes, it’s ego on my opinion.

To be honest, it has happend to me to comment on something that I didn’t take time to analyze deeply. I gave my opinion based on an extremely superficial analysis and we all have already do it. Just understand that this is a normal human behavior and that it’s not a problem.

Attention, it’s not necesssary to remove these comments because they will never disappear. The goal is to reach enough people who understand your message and practice your advice.

1000 real fans

1000 fans

To succeed on internet, you only need to have 1000 real fans. It means people who understand what you say, who agree with what you say, who like your content, who share and who buy your products. You can have 1 million people who hate you, if you have 1000 real fans, that’s enough.

Many people are afraid of negative comments and that’s a shame. Imagine yourself in 10 years. You talk to a person and you explain to him/her that 10 years ago, you had a blog, a podcast or a Youtube channel and that you stopped it because of a negative comment that touched you. Think about that, do you realize how ridiculous it is ? So continue to create content on internet.

The Trick To Have A Prodigious Result

results

I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and I learned good stuff.

This trick is one of the fundamental principles for success. If you want an exceptional result, you need to have an exceptional behavior.

Having an exceptional behavior means have a different behavior from the majority of people. Think about it, if you do the same thing as the others, you will have the same results as the others, it’s simple and logical.

Look at this example. Imagine that you’re doing karate and you want to become world champion :

Here are 2 choices :

  1. You’re looking for a teacher who has already been world champion and you use a technique that is different from others.

  2. You learn karate with people doing karate for fun. These people don’t have the ambition to become world champion.

Another example. Imagine that you want to have financial independence and that in your environment, there is no one who has financial independence.

Here are 2 choices :

  1. You’re looking for a person (on internet) who is financially independent and you use a technique different from the others.

  2. You listen to advice of people around you who don’t have financial independence.

We agree. In both cases, you’re more likely to succeed by looking for people who have already accomplished your goal. It’s interesting to see that the majority of people (my parents, for example) criticize people who are successful, but that shouldn’t stop you from listening to and using the techniques of people who are successful.

My opinion on

opinion

I think you noticed but everyone has an opinion on everything. Even a person who doesn’t know anything about a subject, likes to give his/her opinion. Is it in human nature ? I don’t know but to be successful, you need to learn how to sort out the good advice that will help you to reach your goal and the bad advice that will slow you down or block you.

I’m not going to lie to you, when you start, it’s really hard to sort out the good and bad advice. To get the best of luck from the start, I advise you to listen to people who have already accomplished your goal and not others.

Skepticism

skepticism

There is a method that is cool, it’s good skepticism. You’ll see, it’s easier to understand the difference between good and bad skepticism than a good and bad hunter.

Bad skepticism

Bad skepticism is when you see something that is too good to be true and you say : «  Pfff, it’ a scam » or « No, it’s not for me » and you’re not going to do anything.

Good skepticism

Good skepticism is as astonished as the bad skeptic, but he/she wonders : « Is it going to work with me ? ». Good skeptic thinks like that because he/she knows that the only way to know if it’s true is to test it yourself. He/She tests it by doing a simple experiment to see if it’s true or if it’s a scam.

I know we can’t absolutely test everything because sometimes we don’t have the time or the material but, it’s this concept that I share with you. When you have a project that you like, see if you can test different techniques or methods. Test different techniques or methods that have the potential to give you a lot of result with simple experiences.

With this article I want to motivate you to connect with people who already accomplished your goal. With theses people, you can advance your project faster by avoiding making fatal mistakes. It’s true that it’s easier to connect with people around you but you may stagnate. Be persistent and patient to connect with people who have already reached your goal and who are still progressing.

It’s extremely motivating to be surrounded by people who are always progressing.

Manage Repetition When There Is A Lot Of Content

repetition

I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and I learned good stuff.

There is a secret to manage repetitions when there is a lot of content. The secret is that you don’t need to manage your repetitions when you have a mission to learn something from your audience. To make a transfer of knowledge to your audience.

Attention, if every day you repeat the same thing, you will make your audience run away. I think you know the limit yourself.

Here are 2 benefits of repeating your content, education and editorial. 

Education

education

One the great keys to education is repetition. Being regularly confronted with knowledge make it possible to memorize and use this knowledge in everyday life.

Editorial

text audio video image format

  1. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel all the time. You can recycle content that you published 6 months, 1 year, 2 years ago, etc.

    If you look at a magazine and compare that the magazine has published in previous years, you will see that there is a lot of content that repeats itself.

  2. You can recycle this content in a different way. You can talk about this content with a different angle because your opinion has evolved (you have improved your knowledge on this subject).

  3. You can recycle this content in a different format. There are 3 type of formats : text, audio and video.

You can be the best in your country, there will always be people who have never read the article you published 2 years ago.

Transfer of knowledge

pass knowledge

It’s necessary to repeat your content for people who discover what you’re doing and haven’t yet consumed your content. If you write your articles thinking that your audience is taking the time to read all of your previous articles, you’re making a mistake and you could lose a part of your audience.

Repetition is necessary in education because human beings forget things easily.

People in your audience who read one of your article a year ago, will forget 3/4 of the content. And it’s the same thing for you when you read someone else’s content. That’s why recycling this content with a different angle or format allows your audience to learn better and memorize better.

If your mission is to make a transfer of knowledge, repetition is a great way to motivate people to take action. It forces people in your audience to ask : « Did I use that knowledge ? Did I act ? ». I didn’t create my blog to do intellectual masturbation. I create and recycle my content to motivate people to take action.

It’s possible that I wrote an article and that a part of my audience didn’t understand it. Recycling this article with a different angle or format may allow this part of my audience to better understand this article. The more I write and the better I can explain, it’s cool.
