The key to growth is neither to resist advice nor to accept all advice, but rather to determine to whom to listen for advice. That’s the qualitative determinant.

Some idiot said once, “The only thing to do with feedback is to listen to it.” I guess that’s true if your intent in life is to become a ping pong ball.

Choose a few people whom you trust and admire, allow yourself to be vulnerable and listen, and turn away all unsolicited feedback, which is almost always for the sender’s ego. That’s how you grow.
