Thinking Shifts to Become More Relaxed About Feedback

The experiments in this section will help you understand your thinking processes around feedback and move your thoughts in a more balanced direction.

Fine-Tune Your Mind to the Benefits of Feedback

When you’re in anxiety mode, it’s easy to think of feedback as something wholly torturous and psychologically painful. Can you nudge this thinking by attuning to some of the benefits?

You may find out you’ve done something well.

You may discover that things you perceive as minor aspects of your work are seen by other people as major strengths.

You may achieve more success because what you produce after feedback is better. For example, someone gives you a tip or suggests a change that improves your work. You realize you like the new version, but it wasn’t something you would’ve attempted without a push in that direction.

Through feedback, you may get new insights that help you solve problems you’ve been stuck with. The feedback giver may offer useful information about how he or she previously solved the problem you’re currently having.

Lastly, the process of receiving feedback can strengthen your relationship with the person giving the feedback. It can be a bonding experience.
