Our egos love to hear praise, but when wanting to become the best at something, find those who will tell you the honest truth. The good, and most importantly, THE BAD. If the bad never gets pointed out to us, we will never get better. We can only change what we become aware of.
So when trying something new or learning something new, appreciate the praise that you may get, but also seek out the constructive criticism from those who are willing to give it to you.
