If you want to achieve something original and meaningful with your life, you MUST learn to deal with rejection and criticism.

If you're an artist of any kind your work will be rejected by editors, curators and other gatekeepers. And each time you put it in front of the public, you expose yourself to criticism.

If you're an entrepreneur you face rejection by (potential) customers, partners and investors. Those same people won't hesitate to criticise you if they are unhappy (justified or not).

If you're chasing your dream job you'll receive your share of rejection letters. And once you land the job, taking flak when things go wrong is part of the deal.

If you're an athlete or sports player it's a battle to get on the team. And you'll hear about it from all sides - your coach, your team-mates and (so-called) supporters - if they think your performance isn't up to scratch.

If you're a campaigner for change you face inertia, resistance and hostility from everyone with an investment in the status quo. No wonder most people choose not to rock the boat.

Between them, rejection and criticism can rob you of your dream.

Many people set out on their chosen path full of hope and inspiration, only to turn back because they couldn't deal with the emotional impact of crushing rejections and vicious criticism.

If you want to avoid joining the legions of also-rans, you'll need to find practical, effective ways to deal with rejection and criticism.

Anyone who says 'don't take it so personally' doesn't understand what it's like when you are hit by a major rejection or biting criticism.

At least to begin with, it's almost impossible NOT to take it personally (for very good psychological reasons). To deal with rejection and criticism, you need to acknowledge the pain - and find ways of building motivation and creative confidence.

In short, you need to develop resilience.

In Resilience, Mark McGuinness explains why your reactions to rejection and criticism are completely understandable - and shows you that overcoming adversity is a learnable skill.

Through stories from his own experience, as well as those of famous people who faced rejection and criticism on the road to their success, he will show you that you are far from alone in suffering from rejection and criticism.

And he draws on years of experience as a coach to give you practical advice that has been road-tested with hundreds of people facing similar challenges to you.

You will learn:

* Why rejection and criticism hurt so much
* Several ways you may be making rejection worse (without realising it)
* How to keep going in spite of multiple rejections
* What to do with your fear of criticism
* Why your inner critic is (potentially) your best friend
* When to ignore the critics - and when to listen
* Whether (and how) to respond to insults and abuse
* Why success is harder than it looks - and how to deal with it

This is not a theoretical book - it's packed with practical tips and techniques you can apply to your own challenges right away.

Whether you're just setting out, in the middle of your journey, or dealing with the unexpected challenges of success, Resilience will show you how to keep moving forward.

Since the mid-nineties, Mark McGuinness has coached clients engaged in creative careers, helping them overcome rejection, criticism and other obstacles to success.

He has also dealt with his own share of rejection and criticism, as a self-employed coach, psychotherapist, public speaker and writer. His blogs and ebooks are read by thousands of people every week, and he coaches clients all over the world.

Resilience distills over 16 years' experience of helping clients facing real-life challenges.

Resilience will take you a few hours to read; its lessons will help you for the rest of your life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Creative Endurance Required Resilience 25. Oktober 2012
Von Jarie Bolander - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have been following Mark's blog, Lateral Action, for some time and I'm thrilled that he finally put together a book that deals with the most important aspect of creative endurance -- resilience.

You simply cannot create any type of art without having resilience to criticism or rejection. It's an essential skill that will allow any artist to endure the struggles, hardships and setbacks that will occur during the creative process.

I'm particularly found of the books style which is a more refined and polished version of his witty, charming and sometimes scolding blog.

The one aspect of Resilience that resonates with me is the discussion of the inner critic. That is, by and far, the biggest challenge all creative people face. Our inner critic is how we internalize those rejections and criticisms. If our inner critic is stronger than our resilience then we will stall on our path to success. If we can manage our inner critic, then we build our resilience and creative endurance.

Luckily, Mark distills his vast knowledge of the creative mind into easy to read and even easier next steps to take. It's this learning then doing model that makes applying Mark's wisdom simple to do.

If you find yourself struggling to meet your creative goals, always pondering whether or not you will make it or just want to live a more rewarding creative life, then pick up resilience. It's the missing piece to building up your creative endurance.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing resource for all creatives! 28. November 2012
Von Kerri Ho - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Mark McGuiness' new book is a must-have for all creatives.

Creative people all face the inevitable reality that there work may be rejected or criticized. The nature of working as a creative is that you put yourself out there, so therefore make yourself vulnerable for attack. This often makes a lot of creatives quit on pursuing their creative dreams. This is where Mark's book will come in to not only help, but inspire, empower and equip all creatives.

Instead of quitting or feeling discouraged, Mark teaches very effective strategies of how to handle rejection and criticism and continue to flourish in our creative work. His book is easy to read and extremely practical.
If you are an artist or professional in a creative field, this book will help you flourish to your full potential, giving you the strength, inspiration and practical actions to take to never give up! I'm a singer/performer/vocal coach/business entrepreneur and I am now armed with practical tips on how to keep going in my creative pursuits and dreams.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Practical Guide for Creative People on Building Resilience 2. November 2012
Von Ms D. Henry-Pollard - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Anyone who has every produced a piece of creative work, embarked on a venture very personal to them or reached for a meaningful vision needs to read this book.

That is quite a big statement, but people who are creative in any field will at some point be faced with rejection and criticism. In fact, one of the very first things to take away from this book is, "thank goodness, it's not just me". However, at the moment of the criticism, knowing that you are not alone in having your great idea thrown back in your face is not always a comfort. This is when `Resilience` will be the perfect tool to get you back on track.

Mark McGuinness has worked for 16 years as a coach helping creative people to overcome the obstacles they face in their work. In addition to working with his clients, he is a writer and public speaker. He is also a poet, so understands exactly how devastating it can be to have a piece of work created from the soul crushed by one critical comment.

Mark brings his considerable professional and personal experience together in this book, creating a rich resource of insights, advice and very practical tips. He suggests that the best way to work with the book is to read it all the way through and then go back to the chapters which feel most relevant to you and work through the questions and exercises at the end of each. I would agree with this as your first read through gives a great overview of issues such as The Inner Voice, your harshest critic, different types of criticism and how to deal with them, and how to get the odds on your side. As you read, you will know instinctively which areas you want to work on straightaway and you can go back and work on them in more depth. Because Mark covers so much ground, I can also see how you could go back to the book time after time. (I certainly will be!)

The book is both an easy and challenging read. The easy bit is that it is written in a very straightforward, approachable and often humorous style. (My favourite quote from the whole book, because I can identify with it, is about how we often exaggerate the negative things which happen and how we can flip that thinking around with humour: "The end of the world eh? Who'd have guessed it would be a Tuesday?".) There are great stories to illustrate key points and heartening examples of people who were rejected only to bounce back. (We all know about J K Rowling's struggle to get into print and how her persistence eventually paid off big time, but it is delightful to read the list of other authors who are now millionaires and/or regarded as high priests of English literature who were persistently kicked into the long grass by publishers.) The challenging part is that it makes you question just how committed you are to your idea/vision/craft, which is always a powerful exercise at any point in one's career.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mark's got a lot of knowledge... 26. April 2013
Von Cheryl Brown - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is invaluable - I work as a singer, but want to be a writer - and I got this book to help with the fear of rejection from agents, editors, etc --BUT even after 25 years performance experience I found a lot in here to help me in my singing gig! Who'd have thought?
I also get Mark's free Creative Pathfinder weekly course from his website and there's lots of tips in there for marketing etc. It's wonderful of his to make such valuable information available for such a little price &/or FREE!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very helpful 15. Mai 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As entrepreneurship, I use to face customers reactions and friends/family criticism and try to deal with personal issues about it. After I read this book I have more confidence because of insights about what people think and feel.

This book is oriented to artists and people that are always facing criticism, so his recomendations works for any other less-pressed-entrepreneur.

I like the analogy between the two lions in the entrance and how criticism are waiting for us and how to we can encourage us to get across them and go further.
