There is something about praise and prolonged celebrations that gets to the heart of men. It can very easily develop into pride and trigger a reason to rest on one’s oars. Some will refuse to go to the other side because of their achievements on this side, but there is more to be done and even bigger laurels await.
People do not like being told about their flaws- points and things in their lives which when improved can make their lives and their relationships with others better. Constructive criticism can often seem a very hard rub on the skin, but accommodating them is one way to shape value and character because it will surely take more than one rub to be polished.
