Lolzzz..i can really relate to this post. Got experience in things like this. For example, my music director will always tell me I play rubbish when I was learning the piano. This can really have two effect on a person. It can either kill the zeal, or challenge you to do more. And I guess him knowing I am that kind of person that loves challenges, I just wanna prove him wrong. It was later on he had to confess to me I had been doing so great from day one but he wouldn't want me to stop the work because someone had praised me that I was doing fine. He wanted me to be better.
Nice post man. ..always learning something new each day from you
