Legend has it that Gene Simmons was being criticised for the latest KISS album and he responded by saying,

“Guess whose album we’re not talking about?  Yours!”

Here’s the deal.

If you’re out there doing something meaningful with your life, you will attract criticism.

If you’re leading, creating or innovating, there will be people who will have a negative opinion about your work.

So as I see it, we have a handful of choices.

We can aspire to greatness, give us something to talk about and ignore the critics.

We can be afraid of the potential for comment and do nothing.

We can do nothing, but still support those who are taking action.

We can do nothing and yell from the cheap seats.

Your choice.
