How To Not Be Thrown Off Your Game By Negative Feedback

Have you ever received negative feedback on an offer you truly thought your tribe would love? When you first get the feedback, it can really hurt. But it's just feedback, and you have to keep in mind that it's going to happen to everyone at some point.

Girlfriend, I get it. I know from experience that it does take some serious flexing of your mindset muscles to move past any negative feedback you received, so I thought I'd put together an episode to help you stay on top of your game and use negative feedback to your benefit.


Recently, I've been getting a lot of questions around how to move past negative feedback. I wanted to bring you a training on four strategies to help you move past negative feedback along with some very practical things for you to do that will use negative feedback to amplify your offer!


The four strategies I provide in this episode will really help you handle negative feedback in your business.

1. Understand Where Feedback Comes From

The main reason why people give feedback is because they want to be heard. When you're sorting through feedback on your offerings, you should keep in mind that what your tribe is saying is always about them – not you.

Key Points I Discussed:

Who is feedback always about?
What does feedback show you about those who leave it?

One example of negative feedback that I've seen?
What do negative comments reveal?

  • Beliefs
  • Values
  • Point of need

2. Look At It From Outside Eyes

You have to separate yourself from the feedback. In this section, I encourage you to ask yourself, what would I say if this was happening to someone else?

Key Points I Discussed:

Why you should seek out opportunities within feedback?
What is the feedback revealing to you about your ideal customers?

3. Dig A Little Deeper

Don't be afraid to feel all the feels when it comes to feedback. It helps to dig a little deeper into your feelings and really be honest with yourself.

Key Points I Discussed:

What beliefs about yourself, your product and your work are being triggered right now?
How can you stop words from hurting you?
In what ways can you shift your beliefs about yourself?

4. Stop Focussing On The Negative Feedback

Girlfriend, you've got to stop focussing on negative feedback! In this section, I share why and how.

Key Points I Discussed:

Why should you give negative feedback its moment and then move on?
How is negative feedback stopping you from being productive?
Why you need to stop putting yourself through the pain of moving on?

5. Practical Things You Can Do To Move Past The Negativity

  • Create a stock response.
  • Write an email but don't send it.
  • Talk to a mentor or share it with your mastermind.
  • Confide in a friend that can listen to you, but give you perspective and pull you out of your funk – those friends are keepers!
  • Read testimonials.
