When you hear famous people talk about how they got to be so successful, they often talk about the challenges they faced, people who helped them along the way, and… the feedback they received that was pivotal in their learning journey! Their stories can be an inspiration to us all and show us how we too can use feedback to our advantage.
There are plenty of people out there giving general advice on how to be open to criticism and feedback in order to succeed. And there are inspirational quotes from famous people about how failure and criticism are necessary, useful parts of a path to success.
A lot of people seem to agree that feedback leads to success—but it’s easier said than done, and we found it hard to track down specific real life stories that bridge from knowing to doing.
