do nothing, say nothing, be nothing to excape criticism

do nothing, say nothing, be nothing to escape criticism

Criticism is something that can be used in a helpful way or something used to put a person down. There are always people who will try to put you down to make themselves look or feel better. It is just one of those things that you have to learn to deal with when someone is trying to help or put you down. Going to a school with so many great athletes and coaches makes it a little hard to realize when they are trying to help. There are plenty of times when my coach has told me I am doing something totally wrong and that I need to work on it. Instead of getting mad and frustrated I noticed that he was only telling me this so that I can make my game just that much better. The hardest time to realize whether someone is there to help or to hurt you is when a kid say something bad to you. Sometimes your own teammates will try to help you but most likely, they are trying to act better than you. When it comes down to those moments you will just have to use your own best judgement, but you should not automatically assume they are trying to put you down. There are very few times that someone will be putting you down at IMG because they are all there to help you achieve your greatest potential.
