Top Tips

Be open to criticism

Taking in criticism positively and being able to filter it is an important life skill.

You will be criticised, at some point in your life. These criticism can be difficult to accept – but that all depends on your reaction. Either you use criticism in a positive way to improve, or in a negative way that can lower your self-esteem and cause stress, anger or even aggression.

The key thing to remember is that whatever the circumstance is, don't respond in anger. Try to remain calm and use criticism to fuel your growth. We all learn by making mistakes, and refusing to admit to your mistakes can hinder your progress on being successful.

Bet on yourself

If you're not betting on yourself to win, no one else will

Don’t give up just yet. Bet on yourself because who else do you trust more than yourself? Nobody else can do it for you. You will even surprise yourself along the journey once you let go and just go all in.

Just like how you would cheer for your favorite sports team, you also need to be your biggest cheerleader. Put in the work and the practice and the long hours required, so that when it’s game time you score the winning shot!

Bet on yourself. You are the best investment there is.
