What You Need Is Brutal Honesty To Grow

View descriptionShare

Are you always honest with yourself and others?

In this episode, John provides advice on how to deliver brutal honesty and why it is important to be able to do this.

John recently wrote an article on this subject and how brutal honesty needs to come from yourself as well as other people. If you can be honest with yourself, this will allow you to take less positive feedback on board as well, making you a better, more well-rounded person. Who doesn’t want that!

“The definition of success is getting knocked down seven times and getting up eight.

John talks about how this quote has helped him over the years. Hearing criticism from someone can feel like you are being knocked down, but you must get back up, deal with it and maybe implement the feedback into improving.

If you’d like to learn how to deliver brutal honesty and what it means to hear it yourself, take 15 minutes out of your day to listen to this episode.



  • We must learn to take criticism on board. Don’t be offended by it.
  • It can be difficult to be brutally honest with someone but if you are carrying it out in a non-confrontational way and have their best interests at heart, then go for it.



“There are two places where brutal honesty needs to come from. One is yourself and two is from others.”

“If you’re honest with yourself, it helps you take criticism or take that feedback from others.”
