This a very introspective time right now thanks to Mercury Retrograde. Sudden things may come up that you need to deal with.
And the problem is, you don’t want to get thrown off course when you were making progress towards your goals.
For me, it hit me last night.
I mean – really hit me!
While I was working on an awesome new offering and feeling really good while sitting at my desk in my office, all of a sudden 2 of the bookshelves on my wall came crashing down on me – literally on top of my head.
It was so surreal. I’m still not sure what to make of it. All this after I had just spent the day happily clearing my office and shredding old papers with my daughter.
I’ve been majorly upgrading my life over here: new programs, a new couch, trips booked, a new coach.. and then boom, hit on the head!
It was a huge mess…
Broken things. Ice packs. But I’m SO grateful I wasn’t really hurt. And everything for the most part is replaceable.
And we have insurance. 🙂 Hooray!
Okay – but let’s talk about those other things, the ones that aren’t so easy to replace or overcome – like when you get a blow to your ego.
Or when someone attacks or criticizes your work.
How do you replace the thoughts that come into your head when that critic comes out to play?
It doesn’t feel good.
Let’s face it, inner pain can often feel much worse than the physical pain I felt last night.
We all have haters. And we all have heard that expression, “Haters gonna hate.”
So don’t let it ruin your day, or your big dream.
That’s nice in theory. But how do you put it into practice?
And hey, not all criticism is bad.
You actually can use it to your advantage!
So I created a video about how you can transform criticism into a good resource for manifesting.
Watch this week’s Manifest Monday’s video to discover the 5 Easy Steps to Overcome Criticism:
As I shared in the video, there may be things that you can improve upon.
Now you can be grateful that you received the criticism in the first place – Because without it, you wouldn’t have had the opportunity to grow!
Do you have friends or loved ones who could use this message right now?
If so, share it with them!

HI Jen thank you for this video: I really want to answer to this because it is so appropriate now for me. I just come out of a very serious fight with a colleague where she actually fought a lot… alone.
I have accepted a role as substitute teahcer in a high school: sometimes I do, I love teens. After helping in every possible way both to keep the teacher’s line and to prepare the students against traps of their final diploma exam (next week) the teacher came and insulted me shouting literally at me in a place where possibly the whole world could listen and accused me of everything (had she had more time she would have probably found connections between me and some of the wars currently fought in the world). But this is not the point: she might even be right (I say might). The worst part of this is that she used the students as a shield. “They said you said….” (thing I didn’t say or were reported out of context). And for the first time in my life I…. didn’t get it personally deep inside. I understood immediately this was only deconstructive and no question I was asking would get a decent answer. I stayed calm (most of the time), explained my points and when I had confirmation this was all coming from a place of crazy jealousy (jealousy of what?) I simply decided to ignore her offering my best smile every time I meet her. This happened on Friday and I didn’t tell a-ny-bo-dy. And you know why? I’ve learned from past experiences that the more you talk about it the bigger it grows and I REFUSED to have her even for a second in my mind in my family weekend.
So this is something I can share. Do not tell it again again as it happens or it continues to happen and spoil your day. Some people are not worth your time and effort.
There’s something more I can share that is often helpful: I did something else, just yesterday last day of my substitution: I proposed that we met BOTH and TOGETHER in front of the (she said) accusing students to solve the problem civilly altogether. So I invited her to enter the classroom (I was very careful to invite her in front of the students ) and she refused strongly. Then I laughed and continued talking to my students of other lovely questions and when I said goodbye they were so cute to give me a warm applause (if they are really so angry with me, they all have a bright future in Holliwood!!). I think that she qualified herself without me intervening at all.
So now she has accused me I am arrogant because I have an Oxford accent (do I Jen? That’s cool! And I’ve never been to Oxford I think), can I be arrogant with all of you? I am PROUD OF MYSELF and how I faced it all without losing my temper. Just one year ago this would never have happened.
Love to all.
