Pilates Quote: Constructive Criticism

This quote from Joseph Pilates sounds like something out of a fortune cookie!  But how true are these words of wisdom.  This philosophy is more than just a Pilates lesson, but a lesson for life.

Constructive criticism, allows the opportunity for personal growth and development (if you’re open to the help.)  Criticism without a solution is only a way of tearing others down, a form of bullying, potentially an act of superiority, or a cruel way of belittling the efforts of others.

Watch your tongue; speak kindly to yourself and others.  Be silent if you don’t have a solution or are able to back up your criticizing comments with something positive and helpful to demonstrate your support and respect for those around you.  Help make the world a better place with constructive criticism or say nothing at all.
