Lots of examples on how to overcome criticism as an artist and writer. But even then, the book was quite repetitive, asking the reader to continuously follow 6 steps. Think about if you were actually being criticised "the other painting you did was better" and if you took the harsh criticism (like from a boss) to write a letter where you let it all out.

In other words, brush of the critics.

Don't analyse their comments unless you see some truth in them (you are always late to work).
