How to Think About Your Critics

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now It’s easier to be a critic than it is to be a creator. The critic has only to find fault. They believe that the value that they create is in tearing others down. In truth, the critic is so afraid of having their own work criticized that they can’t bring themselves to produce anything of their own. So instead, they criticize.The critic hates what he sees in you. He hates that you have the audacity, the courage, the bravery to put yourself out there, to create, to ship. Because he can’t bring himself to create, he hates you for being able to do what he himself cannot.But the critic still wants what you have. He wants to be thought of as a creator. He wants the audience. He wants the accolades. He wants the attention. And he will do or say anything to anything to get attention, mistakenly believing that all attention is good attention.You don’t owe the critic a response or reply. You don’t owe critic a defense of your creation. You don’t owe him your energy. His real struggle is not with you. His struggle is really with himself. There isn’t a single argument that you can make in defense of your work that will help the critic win the battle he is fighting with himself. Defending your work only feeds the critic, it doesn’t help him.Pity the TrollTrolls leave a trail of negativity, criticism, and vitriol behind (especially here in the social web). They don’t understand that in their desperate attempt to be noticed, they’re gaining attention for something so negative that only their brother and sister trolls pay them any heed. Instead of winning friends and influencing people, they alienate the very audience whose attention it is they seek.Trolls don’t know that their is no real audience for trolls. They don’t recognize how others perceive them.The only response to trolls is to ignore them. Feeding trolls only gives them the false impression that what they’re doing by criticizing you is actually creating, that it adds value. It doesn’t.You create because you are a creator. If you create because you want to win over the trolls, you’re creating for the wrong reasons. You create for the people that appreciate your creation. You create for the people that find value in what you do. And unless you are a troll, trolls are not your audience.Push the publish button.QuestionsHave you ever let your fear of the critic stop you from creating or publishing your work?Was your critic who you really had in mind at the birth of your creation?How should you feel about the fact that your work doesn’t resonate with people for whom it was never intended?The most important “block” button is not the one you can click on the web. It’s the one in your mind. Who do you have to be to press the real “block” button?last_img read more

‘Assam, Arunachal can resolve border dispute’

first_imgAssam Minister Ranjit Dutta, who was in Itanagar to attend a tribal festival, exuded confidence that the decades-old boundary dispute between the two States, both BJP-ruled, can be resolved through “meaningful” dialogue.Permanent solutionAssam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has been initiating measures with his Arunachal counterpart Pema Khandu to hammer out a permanent solution to the border issue, the Assam Irrigation Minister said on Monday in his address at the Nyokum Yullo festival.The festival is celebrated by the Nyishi community of Arunachal Pradesh every year to invoke God’s blessings for good harvest and communal harmony.Clad in Nyishi Bopia (headgear), Mr. Dutta, who attended the festival on behalf of Mr. Sonowal, said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is serious about the dispute between Northeast States, so is Sonowal. The Chief Minister has already initiated a similar dialogue with his Nagaland counterpart T.R. Zeliang.” Stating that “divisive forces” were trying to “destabilise peace” in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, Mr. Dutta called upon the people of both the States to thwart such attempts.‘Cordial relations’ “Till 1978 both the States (Assam and Arunachal Pradesh) were under one administrative unit of ‘bor Axom’ (Greater Assam). The people of both States since time immemorial have been maintaining cordial relations,” the Minister said.Mr. Dutta called upon the Assamese people staying in Arunachal Pradesh to uphold the age-old relations through cultural exchange programmes.Lauding the Nyishi community for preserving the age-old culture and traditions, Mr. Dutta exhorted the elderly people in the State to pass on the baton of tradition and culture to the younger generations. Nyokum Yullo Celebration Committee chairman Ha Tatu, on his part, said the presence of a Minister from neighbouring Assam will cement the ties between the people of the two States.last_img read more

You may be used to seeing Vijay Amritraj wield his racket on court but in this avatar he is playing a role in the 1983 James Bond film Octopussy. This is just one,He is dressed in a double-breasted jacket, sand-coloured pants and a cravat, looking every inch a gentleman. You may be used to seeing Vijay Amritraj wield his racket on court but in this avatar he is playing a role in the 1983 James Bond film Octopussy. This is just one of the many hats Vijay Amritraj has donned. Think Indian tennis and 63-yearold Vijay Amritraj’s name comes to mind, by virtue of his being one of the finest tennis players the country has ever seen. He was the closest India had to a tennis super star; our chance at top prize on the finest courts in the world. In fact, in the 70s, when he was at the height of his career, Amritraj and his contemporaries, Bjorn Borg and Jimmy Connors, were referred to as the ABC of tennis. Born and brought up in Chennai, Amritraj started playing tennis to strengthen his lungs (he spent much of his childhood battling lung disease). Many wrote him off as a sportsman because of this but he was determined to play the best tennis India had ever seen. Today, 25 years after he bid his competitive racquet goodbye, Amritraj is still busy drawing people to Wimbledon through his insightful commentating. Over the years, he has shifted gears successfully, making a name for himself outside of the courts, as an actor, sports commentator, UN Ambassador and a successful entrepreneur as well (he even has a collection of wines names after him; the Grover Zampa Vineyards’ Vijay Amritraj Reserve Collection which was launched in 2014). As we meet him on a hot morning at the Delhi Gymkhana Club he looks relaxed. He is here in collaboration with watch brand Rolex to support the Road to Wimbledon initiative that will take India’s top tennis juniors after a stringent qualifier to the Road to Wimbledon Finals at the All England Club in August. Amritraj shares his 12 most memorable milestones, his association with and love for Rolex and other personal achievements that make him the man he is.advertisement1. First Major VictoryWhen I was in my final year at high school I won the collegiate tournament. I was just short of turning 14. It was the month of May, seasonably hot and I won in five sets. Everyone else was much older than me. This led me to thinking I could do it, that I must have belief in myself to become a tennis player.2. National Championships, 1972In 1972 I played the National Championships in Calcutta. I was just 18 and I ended up playing 19 sets over two days. This made me believe further that this was my calling and I needed to exploit my full potential for myself.3. Indian Open, Delhi Gymkhana, 1973My greatest memory of this place (Delhi Gymkhana Club) is of my first major victory in 1973, right here at the club. It was the first ever Indian Open which was the precursor to Chennai open. In both the semis and finals I was down badly in the fifth set but went on to win.4. Beating Rod LaverI reached the quarterfinal of the US Open in 1973 and 1974 and the quarterfinal of Wimbledon in 1973 and 1981. Along the way I defeated greats like Bjorn Borg, Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl and John McEnroe. In 1973 I went on to beat Rod Laver in the US Open and this put me on the world map. The rest as the say is history.5. The Days Of Davis CupLeading India into two Davis Cup finals in 1974 and again in 1987 was an incredible milestone for me and second to none. I was 20 when I first did it and 33 the second time. I don’t see it happening today and this remains one of my proudest achievements.Amritaj in the 1983 Bond film Octopussy with the late Roger Moore 6. Newport Hall Of Fame Tournament, 1976I won the Newport Hall of Fame Tournament in 1976 and as a prize, I was gifted my first ever Rolex which was a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date 36. It has been 40 years since but that watch has not left my wrist. It is very special to me and it was also the start of a wonderful relationship with a brand that I connect with and represent even today.7. Highest World RankingIn the summer of 1980, I reached my highest career singles ranking of World No. 16. This is one of those milestones that stays etched in my mind forever.8. Winning The Padma ShriIn 1983, I won the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award in the country. It was extra special because it was in recognition of my contribution to Indian sport and enhancing the country’s image overseas.advertisement9. Love For The ScreenIn 1983 I got an opportunity to achieve yet another personal goal and act in a film. I got a role in the James Bond film Octopussy and it was a fantastic experience. 10. Messenger Of PeaceI was appointed United Nations Messenger of Peace on February 9, 2001 by Secretary General Kofi Anan and as a UN ambassador my work took me around the world to create awareness about drug abuse and HIV. This was a special association and one I cherish even today.11. Giving Back To IndiaI set up my foundation in 2006 and this was very important to me as I wanted to help those children who were less fortunate. I grew up with bad health but my mother made me who I am so I decided that if I could help make a difference in the lives of other children in India I would. 12. Biggest Personal MilestoneMy family means the world to me. My greatest success is if my children Prakash, a former tennis player, and Vikram, a lawyer, call me every day.last_img read more

I imagine they will continue on that path,” he stated. last_img read more

Jake Gyllenhaal To Read Poetry For Veterans

first_imgThe Headstrong Project is proud to be hosting the first ever “Words of War” event on May 8th at IAC HQ in New York City.This cocktail fundraiser is designed to further support the mission of the Headstrong Project, to help veterans recover from the hidden wounds of war in order to lead full and meaningful lives. Specifically, “Words of War” will support comprehensive mental healthcare for military veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan.The evening will include a war poetry reading by Jake Gyllenhaal. Additionally, Adam Driver (from HBO’s Girls and major motion picture Lincoln) and Joanne Tucker of “Theater of War” will perform a scene from Sophocles’ Ajax. This short presentation of wartime poetry, literature, theater and letters articulate the exuberance and ideals that drive men and women to war, the thrill and horror of combat, the difficulties of returning home, and the experience of family members worried about their loved one at war. Iconic wartime images, by photographers Ashley Gilbertson, Lucian Read and Jonathan Alpeyrie will be projected during the presentation.“Even for those who have fought and served in combat, PTSD can be a tough term to understand,” said Zach Iscol, Executive Director, Chairman of Headstrong Project. “It isn’t accessible and there is a stigma attached to it. This event will speak to how normal and timeless the reactions and emotions felt in and returning home from war can be. Of course you’re going to feel grief over losing a close friend. Of course you’re going to feel shame and guilt about life and death decisions made in the fog of war…any good person would.”The Headstrong Project began treating military veterans in August 2012, and will be using funds raised from this event to expand care to veterans and their families. In partnership with their media partners Google, Newsweek/Daily Beast, and Pixel Corps, Words of War will also benefit Team Rubicon, Team RWB, and Student Veterans of America. These organizations have been incredibly effective at building communities of veterans- a strong antidote to the effects of PTSD and moral injuries.Over 300,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans report symptoms of PTSD. The VA estimates we lose 22 veterans a day to suicide and the Department of Defense reports 30-50 active duty troops take their lives every month. Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are at particular risk. It has been estimated that for every troop we have lost in combat this year, 25-30 take their own lives. These numbers also do not reflect increases in dangerous and destructive behavior – such as astonishing increases in domestic abuse, substance abuse, and even motorcycle accidents.The evening will benefit the Headstrong Project, Team RWB, Team Rubicon and Student Veterans of America.

He is raising his awareness of others, observing the world around him and looking for people in need as he goes about his daily life.He has called his challenge “The Robin Hood Project”, and created an Instagram account where fans can follow it’s development.He explains why he has chosen to undertake such an ambitious project there:“The other day I posted this pic of an African child I met in Australia playing outside the grocery store. His story of his families hardships & struggles to get away from the terror they left behind touched me so I gave him what I had on me… Which was an Australian $20 bill. As the days passed, I thought about him over & over & over & the only thing that bothered me about that night was that I didn’t have more on me to give him at that time. For some reason I just didn’t bring more money from the hotel.”The Game is finding people in need.Credit/Copyright: Instagram“Since I can’t shake that feeling… I have decided to give $1,000,000 (1 million dollars) to people I come in contact with around the world everyday until Christmas.

Womens volleyball Two top25 teams await No 14 Buckeyes in Michigan

Senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe (left) embraces senior middle blocker Kylie Randall after OSU’s 3-0 win over Northwestern at St. John Arena on Sept. 28, 2016. Credit: Jenna Leinasars | Assistant News DirectorThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team took down the No. 1 team in the country last weekend — but that doesn’t mean its conference schedule will be getting any easier.The No. 14 Buckeyes will play two more teams ranked in the Top 25 this weekend – No. 21 Michigan State on Friday and OSU rival No. 23 Michigan, on Sunday.On Saturday, OSU stunned fans as it took down undefeated, No. 1 Nebraska in four sets. This was the first time that OSU has won against a top-ranked team on the road and the third consecutive time the Buckeyes have been victorious on the Husker home court. Junior outside hitter Ashley Wenz said the team’s performance in Lincoln, Nebraska, was a great opportunity for people to see what Buckeye volleyball is all about.“The Nebraska match really gave us a chance to prove ourselves, and really bring us together as a team and show what we’re capable of,” she said. Wenz feels that if the team can channel its energy from the match against the Huskers into the rest of its play, the team will be able to have repeated success. “I think that bottling up the feeling and the unity we had during that match, (we’re) trying to replicate it against every opponent,” she said.First, the Buckeyes will have to battle the Spartans on Friday. Over the past two seasons, the series is split between the two teams. Currently, Michigan State holds a 13-3 record. OSU coach Geoff Carlston gave credit to the Spartans for being what he considers one of the most physically dominant teams in the nation.He added that his team’s ability to slow down Michigan State hitters will be key to OSU’s success.“They just hit the ball hard,” he said. “So our ability to slow them down with our block is going to be important.”Currently, both Michigan State and Michigan are ranked above the Buckeyes in blocks for the Big Ten conference.A player that will be imperative to the Buckeyes’ blocking game is senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe. She is averaging 1.05 blocks per set, and has combined for 61 total blocks this season. Sandbothe ranks second in most career blocks in OSU history with 481. Sandbothe received both conference and national recognition this week: Big Ten Player of the Week and the American Volleyball Coaches’ Association’s National Player of the Week. She was joined by fellow senior, libero Valeria León, who won the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week and sophomore setter Taylor Hughes, who clinched the espnW National Player of the Week. After their bout with the Spartans, the Buckeyes will have a day off before visiting the Michigan Wolverines. Members of OSU’s team noted that this match always comes with a little extra motivation behind it.“The seniors always talk about it. You can feel it. There’s always a little edge to the match, a little more so than all of the other ones,” Carlston said.One of the members of Carlston’s senior leadership, León, added that she loves the environment of playing at Michigan. “We go out there — you have so many fans against you — and it’s all blue and yellow,” she said.The Wolverines are also carrying a 13-3 record this season. In 2015, OSU was able to pull off a 3-1 win while in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but the Scarlet and Gray were swept by the Wolverines at St. John Arena in the next matchup. Wenz, who hails from Springboro, Ohio, is hopeful that her team can keep their victory train rolling with a win over “That Team Up North.”“Being from Ohio, it’s always great to beat them,” she said. “So hopefully we can continue that streak.”The Buckeyes will first play Michigan State at 7 p.m. on Friday in East Lansing, Michigan, followed by the match against Michigan at 1 p.m. on Sunday in Ann Arbor. read more

Tunisia coach calls for changes following poor World Cup campaign

Immigration round ups in Bahamas condemned by activist group calls for desist

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, November 24, 2017 – Nassau – Immigration Department officials continue to deny that they know anything about a report where a Haitian mother and child fell off the back of a truck in Andros during an immigration raid.    Rights Bahamas claims the incident is real and is calling on The Bahamas Government to cease the crackdown citing that it has migrants running scared, even to the point of hurting themselves.The woman was said to have been trying to evade arrest when she fell off the back of the truck, a photo of a bruised child had been circulated on social media but no one is authenticating the image as true – at least no one other than the activist group.In a media release, Rights Bahamas said:   “This behaviour on the part of the immigration officers was totally illegal.   Frightened by the aggressive and illegal action of the officers, the driver sought to escape, resulting in a mother and her young child falling from the truck and sustaining injuries, the severity of which remain unknown. They were taken to a local clinic where, according to witnesses, they were detained by the Immigration officers.”Reaction to the call for a cease and desist by Rights Bahamas is outright rejected as Bahamians reacting to the report say it is the mother who put the child at risk and that anyone helping people to break the law should also be prosecuted.#MagneticMediaNews#activistcondemnimmigrationraidsphoto credit: Save the Bays Related Items:#activistcondemnimmigrationraids, #magneticmedianewslast_img read more

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Anonymous Internet Troll Is Misusing My Familys Name

first_imgDear Editor,As an Everett, I was irate to learn that my family’s name was used in an attempt to smear a political candidate.  The Everetts were long time residents of Wilmington.  My mother ran a successful dancing school and donated proceeds to help build the Health Center.  My father volunteered for years in Little League, Pony League and Pop Warner.  He helped to build the Little League field by the Police Station and a skating rink behind the South School.  I grew up in Wilmington and taught for 30+ years as Miss Everett, Mrs. Mosca, or Mrs. Farrar.The name Jack Everett comes from the Urban Dictionary. As copied from the Urban Dictionary:“Jack Everett – a strong leader that sticks up for other people and he will always put others first. lovely eyes and hair. good at sports, he isn’t arrogant, girls drop even when he is standing. he will fight to protect his friends and family”Perhaps, the person who hid behind a cartoon character and our name sees this as themselves.  However, I question their integrity.  Our family will fight to protect our friends and family, which is why I am writing this.   We do not want to be attached to negative campaigns.For 63 of my years, I have lived and/or worked in Wilmington.  I am invested in Wilmington.  I am angry that our family name has been used in this way and to have been called on this by another hurts all the more.I hope that the people of Wilmington will vote on Election Day and will vote wisely.Sincerely,Sheryl Everett FarrarLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Forget joining The Kapil Sharma Show Sunil Grover says he doesnt even

first_imgSunil Grover and Kapil SharmaTwitterIt was reported that Salman Khan had been trying to mend a broken friendship between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover and suggested his Bharat co-star to join The Kapil Sharma Show. Even Kapil had said in his earlier interviews that the show’s doors are always open for Sunil whenever he wishes to come back but it looks like Sunil is still holding a grudge against Kapil.During his recent interaction with the media, Sunil said that he doesn’t even watch The Kapil Sharma Show adding that he does not watch shows which he does not feature in. He also said that Salman had indeed spoke to him about joining the show but stressed that it was just a suggestion and the Dabangg star never forced him to take a step towards it.The ugly war between friends-turned-foes – Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover – is no secret to anyone. The two comedians fell apart after their infamous mid-air brawl in 2017 and they decided to go separate ways.However, reports have been doing the rounds that Salman is likely to bring Sunil along with him on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote their upcoming film Bharat in June.Earlier, Kapil had spoken about Sunil’s return to The Kapil Sharma Show and said that he had met him and had discussed the concept of the show with him. He also said that as soon as Sunil gets away with his commitments, he will join the show.It now remains to be seen how Kapil and Sunil will react when they will be brought face-to-face with one another on the show.last_img read more
