A Successful Person Will Ask For FeedBack

A SuccessFul Person Is Not Afraid To Ask For Feedback

There is a huge misconception about successful people!

Let’s see do you think that these people “Successful Ones” simply know how to do the right things and get them perfect every time?

Well the truth is every successful person has had to start right where everyone one else does and they practice until they get it right.

They are willing to get out of their comfort zone and ask someone for feedback. The majority of the people are afraid to do this?

How do you feel about this?


Asking Someone For Feedback?

What this means is when you are implementing something new into your journey so you can become that successful person, you actually take the time and ask for feedback.

Yes, you have to come right out and ask people about where things can be improved.

Yeppers You are going to actually talk to people.

And with this you are going to have to be able to accept some constructive criticism, so you had better be aware of this.

To Become A Successful Person You Need To Ask Someone For Feedback And Then Accept Their Advice

When you ask someone for feedback you need to do your best and just accept this, remember everyone has an opinion and you did ask for their advice.

So just take note of this and don’t take anything to personal.

This is the problem why most people don’t ask someone for feedback because they are afraid of what others may tell them and are not willing to accept the feedback.

They don’t want people to say anything is wrong with their idea or products.  A Successful Person Will Ask For FeedBack

Now don’t be unwilling to go and ask someone for feedback because of this one issue.

It is OK, everyone has an opinion, take their advice and learn from it, grow from it.

The problem is when you don’t ask for feedback you will never really know how you are doing.

You will never know how you can become a successful person because you wont know how you could improve things or even if you are on the right path in the first place.

When you learn how to ask someone for feedback as well as learn how to handle the feedback when it is given to you everything that you do will improve.

Once you learn how to take this advice and implement these suggestions from others you will get more creative and you will learn how to trust and respect the opinions of others and therefore become that successful person you want to be.

 A Successful Person Will Ask Someone For Feedback And Learn How To Take It :)

This is a very important post for me to do today because I did have a huge problem with constructive criticism and this is something I have been working on.

The first time I asked someone for feedback I was almost in tears, yes I was very hurt, but I survived and you will to.

Have you ever done this?

If not don’t avoid this one here there is nothing wrong with asking, you are going to learn and grow into a successful person each and every time you ask someone for feedback.

Here is an easy way to get started.

Try it, after a training call you have had with someone, ask them how you did or what you could have done differently to help them?

Now shut up and listen and learn this is going to help you become that successful person as well as help you grow.

You don’t need to answer anyone, you do need to agree though, just thank them for giving you this helpful information on how you can improve.

I know it sounds scary but it really is not all that hard.

So if you are looking to become that successful person be sure to ask someone for feedback starting today.

The reason you may not want to ask someone for feedback is because this is a fear of yours and there is nothing wrong with that.

I have learned you don’t need to be afraid to get anyone’s advice, after all they are just humans just like you; just remember not to take it personally.

When a successful person asks someone for feedback it is all about the learning experience and who knows you may even like what you hear and therefore you are going to start asking for more advice.

Get over this fear and just start stepping up and asking someone for feedback, this is going to help you reach your goals as a successful person.

Chances are if you don’t you will continue to struggle to figure things out on your own.

When a successful person does ask someone for feedback they are going have a clear understanding of what they need to do exactly to improve or adjust and expand.

Are you ready to become a successful person and ask someone for feedback?

    Hi Chery,
    Great post. You are so right. You have to be able to take the criticism if you ask for it and try to accept it gracefully. It does hurt and sting for a while but it is so worth it.

    Have a great evening and thanks for the advice. Monna

    • says

      Good Morning Monna, OH Yes It stings that’s for sure, but this is the only way we can grow. We need to ask if we want to learn, Right? Thanks for adding to the conversation today I do appreciate YOU!! Chery :))

    I received a notice that you posted a new article and the topic is just what I was discussing with a friend today.. so here I am reading your post and leaving a comment :-)

    First.. I must say what me and my friend agree a=on today.. “Unless you ask, how in the world will you know the answer?” I am sure you got the idea that what we talked was exactly what you wrote here.. and I may add that if anyone have an excuse NOT to ask… it means that he or she cannot succeed since they may live in their own little and confine world that does not improve in any way..

    My friend, you are rendering a great service to get in the open subjects like this one.. I trust you will continue and never stop since I can sense this is what your do day after day.. life a great life and share your experiences, personally and professionally.. something that it is welcome by many who truly accept life as a precious adventure.

      Good Morning Time Nick! Wow, Now I am reading your mind HUH? How cool is that LOL!! Seriously this is something I have been struggling with, so I thought I may as well get it out there and ask fro the feedback so to say. I am so happy that you are indeed getting value from my post. Thank You for the wonderful comment and as always your visit.. Chery :))

    Hi Cheryl,

    You make some very great points here. In order to grow we have to get out of our comfort zone. When you ask someone for feedback you have to develop thick skin. You have to be willing to accept criticism. Sometimes we ask for feedback but what we really want to hear is how great we are.

    There is no growth in that kind of situation. If you can get the perspective of others you can truly grow over time. Getting feedback and then having the ability to implement that feedback is a recipe for success. It all starts with honestly asking for feedback in hopes that you can truly learn something from the perspective of others. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Chery,
    Yes, it is necessary that successful people ask for feedback. Many success stories have thrived on feed back.

    The opinions of others help shape our decisions. Nobody knows it all, and if we are open to criticisms then we learn more!

    This post is a reminder of how important it is to listening and learning from contrary voices for success!

      Hello Sunday!! I love this comment my friend! So very true opinions from others does help to shape our decisions, Once we learn what we can do to imporive the way we do things from just asking for feedback we can move forward towards success.. Now how cool is that HUH?

      Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and always your wonderful comment.. I do appreciate it.. Chery :))

    Excellent topic Chery. I agree about the importance of feedback, especially for employees or people working in fields like MLM or network marketing where they have access to experience mentors. However it gets a bit tricky for those of us in creative fields. For example as an author I’m very well aware that there is no writer anywhere on earth who is going to please every reader – it’s foolish to try. You can learn from some of the feedback and reviews, but some of it has to be chalked up to personal preferences and a small percentage to mean hearted wannabies, but that’s just part of the business.

    • says

      Hello Marty, Yes you do have a good point there, you do need to know whom to ask. As Mark stated in his comment you should seek out an expert in your field if you are looking for honest answers.. Thank you for sharing your story with us, it is always so nice to see you here my friend.. Chery :))

    Hi Chery!

    Thank you for telling it like it is! I once heard a successful precious metals account executive, that was an annual six figure earner say, when he was sick, he went to the doctor, and when he needed legal advice he sought out Perry Mason, and when he wanted advice about cooking, he spoke with the chef.

    But he also pointed out, that when they all wanted or needed profitable advice about precious metals, they all sought his advice, because he was the expert!

    So Chef Chery! Tell me, what I need to do! Please! I promise you won’t hurt my feelings! But your advice more than likely help increase my profits! So please do tell!

    • says

      Hello and Welcome to my blog Mark, Chef Chery?? Oh Boy You certainly got me wrong with that comment. LOL Cooking is not one of my favorite things to do.. So other than that statement Your comment Rocks! You do need to figure out whom you want to ask for feedback, so what exactly are you asking me about here Mark? I am not sure what kinf of feedback you are looking for here?

      Please go ahead and set up an appointment or on my vcita form to the right or add me to Skype (cheryschmidt) And lets talk and get to know each other so we can figure this all out OK>> Thanks for adding to the conversation here today.. Talk Soon Chery :))

    I agree with you Chery, asking for feedback is one good way to know if one is actually walking towards the right direction.
    Otherwise they may be walking in a totally different direction and they won’t even know it!

    Thanks for sharing this valuable information,

      Hello and Welcome to my blog Ruthida! I guess you could see it this way HUH? Thanks for adding to the conversation today, I do hope to see more of you here.. Chery :))

    Hi Chery,

    I love constructive criticism! No hard feelings when it comes to that. I will go to someone who has more knowledge than I to ask a question especially when it comes to promoting my business.

    I’ve received so much that I had to tweak than ever before in my life when I ask. It is helpful to me and I want to hear the truth. If I am doing something that needs more umph…or words are not powerful enough, I welcome constructive criticism because it helps me in the long run.

    It’s all in the mindset! I ask and welcome someone who will give me a better way to do something.

    Hi Chery,

    It’s amazing to me when I am willing to be transparent and vulnerable and open myself up for growth and improvement, just how far I really go when I listen to others constructive criticism.

    I completely agree with you that it takes practice and that the average successful person is not extraordinary, but willing to keep at it and take advice from others.

    Thanks for your thought-provoking article, I really enjoyed it! :)

      Good Evening Carol! Oh yeh we are all human HUH? We dont like to be told about our flaws, we like to be praised Right? HEHE It does take courage to ask for feedback and then to keep at it… I am so happy that you enjoyed my article.. Thanks for adding to the conversation, I do appreciate it.. Chery :))

  10. says

    Hi Chery,

    I was afraid too only because I didn’t want to sound too dumb even asking the questions but I didn’t know what I was doing. I desperately needed the help and suggestions so I had to be open to what they were sharing with me.

    I’ve really learned the most from asking people and although I might not always like their answers it’s like when I use to ask my Dad for advice. He would never “tell” me what to do but offer several different suggestions and then I made the decision of which one I felt was best for me. Some suited me fine while others not so much.

    We can’t do this alone so we need to be open to asking for advice. It’s the best decision I’ve made so far but I’ve also met some amazing people as well.

      Hello Adrienne, we all need to start somewhere Right?

    Hi Chery,

    Awesome post here! Still to date I don’t consider myself as a successful blogger but one thing I have learned is not to give up!

    I actually started blogging 4 or 5 years ago and I gave up! Started up again last September and I am determined not to give up this time! I think successful people do this all the time failing and then never giving up!

    I am very self critical and I am always changing things all the time being a creative person which is why one of my personal sites has changed is spots 20 times over the past 4 years!

    I really need to start asking for feedback more however I always ask for comments and peoples thoughts at the end of my blog posts!

    Thanks for bringing this to the front of my brain Chery!
    All the best

      Hello Phillip, Sounds to me like you have the Attitude to become Successful at what ever you want to do.. This my friend is the half the battle “”Belief”” I am happy to that you are back to blogging and will get over and vist and see what you are up to..

      Make it an Awesome Fathers Day and Thanks for sharing.. Chery :))

  12. says

    Hmmmm not sure I totally agree with you here…feedback is often a delay tactic and a good excuse for someone to be harmful by criticizing and dressing it up as feedback… my feedback is from me primarily as that is empowered to be know how I did…I meditate and use my intuition and of course testimonilas are a way of getting feedback and social media likes and shares and comments are too…interesting topic but I am not sure that feedback and success are related for me but I guess like all things if you believe it, it becomes your reality :)

    • says

      Hello Sarupa Yes those are all great ways for us to get feedback and I do appreciate your response but still think that Success IS realted to asking for feedback.. Thanks for sharing your side.. Chery :))

  13. says

    Hey Chery,


    I’m a big believer on constructive criticism and getting feedback from people. I think that if you’re especially trying to sell something, it’s important to get that feedback from people to know if it’s something that’s actually good. We all bias on our work and it’s nice to get an outside perspective from time to time.

    Like you said “When a successful person does ask someone for feedback they are going have a clear understanding of what they need to do exactly to improve or adjust and expand.”

    Great job.

    • says

      Hello Andrew! I am happy to see that you are indeed a believer of cunstructive critism, so amny people are afraid to fess up to this one my friend.. Wooo Hooo Thanks for the visit, the wonderful comment and always for sharing.. I do appreciate it.. Chery :))

  14. says

    It really a Reading through the mind.

    Asking for comment really hearts, because it makes you feel less capable of what you can, But on the other hand asking for feedback gives you quick reply for improvement, the problem is to figure out whom to ask for, because asking the right person , the right question , is going to give you the suggestion.

    I know we are, including me have attitude of “what will people think”, but surely as per your advice we will have to come out of this mental setup and have to start asking.
    Simple straight but Awesome suggestion. :-)

      Hello Shekhar, I do understand what you are talkinvg about here Yes we do need to make sure we ask the right questions to the right people HUH? Greaat Advice My Friend, Thanks for adding to the conversation here today.. Chery :))

  15. says

    I never ask a question if I’m not willing to hear the answer. Less pain that way! But if it’s a question I really need to ask, I get myself to the place where I can accept the feedback.

    We have to know who to ask, to get the most helpful answers. And even then, it isn’t always possible to take all the advice given. But I’d better be honest with myself when sorting through the answers, and not throw away something I really need.


    • says

      Hello Willena. You are so right on my friend! We do need to learn whom to aks the right questions to HUH? Then we do need to take this advice and make it work for us, this is the reason for asking in the first place Correct? Great Comment My Friend Thanks for adding to the conversation here today, I do appreciate you.. Chery :))

    Hi Chery,

    I definitely believe in requesting feedback. In every coaching groups I start, I talk about setting up Buddy Guidelines. I pair up participants, ask them to have at least one, one-hour meeting weekly. One person talks for the first half-an-hour and gets feedback or asks for help or questions or clarifications from the second person. Then the second person goes and talks for a half-an-hour. They divide it evenly down the middle. I have found these to be really helpful in absorbing and implementing the information.

    • says

      Hello Rachel, Wow I love this, I may have to implement something like this with in our team, I do know that talking things over can be a very helpful way to get around obsticlaes HUH? Thanks so much for sharing, I do appreciate it.. Chery :))

  17. says

    I totally agree about the importance of asking for feedback. This was part of a couple of personal development courses I took and it was extremely helpful. I’m now completely fine with asking for feedback. What I don’t like is unsolicited feedback – – that makes me mad :). Haha. But I appreciate hearing others’ perspectives and looking at how I can improve.

    • says

      Hello Leanne, You are so funny Unsolicited feedback is good for you my friend HEHE Thanks for the commment and the visit, Looking forward to getting together soon.. Chery :))

    Great post and we all know deep down feedback is so important. We can never improve if we don’t get feedback and act on it.

    The trouble when asking for feedback is you never know what form it will come in. You have to take it that is was meant positively and get what you can from it and improve. You do need to have a thick skin as Nate said.

    Thanks for Sharing
