Proverbs 13:18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: But he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.
Some people simply hate to be corrected. They do not want someone helping them see their mistakes and fixing them. In their pride they will not listen. Others have a high regard and opinion for what others might think and say. They are the ones that are blessed. They are the ones that will grow and be honored.
Be careful to listen to your critics. Be careful to listen to your leaders that might have your best interest in mind. Do not take it as a lack of respect or love but rather as a way to grow you.
Your success will be due to learning and growing.
