It’s no coincidence that 65 percent of U.S. Olympians are in their 20s. At a certain age athleticism begins to wane, but there may be ways to keep performance up — despite the clock.
Take Criticism in Stride
Nobody’s perfect, and that means we’re all subject to criticism from time to time. But instead of retreating from those negative remarks — whether genuinely constructive or seriously nit-picky — take some time to reflect and learn from these comments. Managing stress, keeping calm, and always (we repeat, always) thinking before reacting can do wonders in avoiding purely emotional responses. Plus, giving the situation some thought can help give us new perspectives on our own behavior.
The Takeaway: Take a breath and wait a second to examine criticism and avoid blowing up over the smallest slight.

As David Gilmour says in his song "take a breath, take a deep breath now...."think of it as constructive criticism and it makes it all better.....and know when some one is just trying to get your goat....don't give them that power....learn from you mistakes and others....
