In her book, “Made to Crave“, author Lysa TerKeurst gives us one of my favorite quotes:

Don’t let people’s compliments go to your head,
and don’t let their criticisms go to your heart.

Focus on the second line in the quote above, and combine that concept with the importance of those 2 or 3 character traits you listed as most essential to reaching your goals. These are some of the treasures of your heart. Don’t let anyone steal them or convince you that they are not yours — guard your heart against criticism, and protect these private assets!

Design a collage or other visual reminder of your vital traits. Show them inside your heart, and your heart being shielded from attack. In the example below, I have listed my most important traits (Courage, Hope, and Joy) and covered them with a hard plastic “shield” of rigid transparent plastic.
