If you're someone who aspires to something beyond the ordinary, you must have figured out by now that there will always be those who are jealous
of your success.
It doesn't matter that you've worked long and hard to get where you are, nor that you've made great sacrifices
in achieving your goals. The "haters" will always find a reason to criticize and even condemn
people who begrudge
you the pride you have in yourself and the recognition you're receiving from others. They can't stand it that you're happy, fulfilled
and achieving your goals.
These hateful individuals are unwilling to do the work that you've done; they rarely make the same kinds of sacrifices or put in the long, hard hours. They resent
your success but are too lazy or spoiled to invest real time or energy in the pursuit of their own goals.
It's true that we aren't always going to succeed in our ventures, even if we put in the time and effort. Results are never guaranteed and life has a way of throwing curve balls
I loved it when Tina Fey went up to collect her Golden Globe and held it high, saying, "This is for all the haters!" She's a good example of a talented, hard-working and successful person who's received an inordinate
amount of negative press. Ms. Fey may be besieged
by haters but she refuses to let them get to
The thing you need to know about these haters is that the only reason they behave this way is that you have something they want but they aren't willing to work for it.
The haters are convinced
that you've been lucky or that you've had some unfair advantage but the truth is that your success is born of your untiring
efforts, and it's these efforts that have brought about your "luck."
The best way to deal with haters is what I call the "one-two
punch." First, don't let them phase
you. Be happy about your success and proud of your accomplishments
. Let in the approval and the recognition from affirming, supportive people and never doubt that you deserve
all this. The haters are angry, jealous people. What they think or say is ultimately meaningless.
Next, the more the haters harass
you, the more you should be motivated
to succeed. They want to undermine
you but your response should be to work that much harder in order to increase your level of success.
When your reaction to their hostility
has inspired you to achieve further success, you've transformed the haters' negativity into fuel for your creative fires. Not only can they not hurt you but they've inadvertently
spurred you on to even greater heights.
