Are you having problems with haters? Ugh, I hate haters – don’t you? If the answer is yes, I have the perfect quote for you.
“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” – Albert Einstein
At some point in this grand ‘ol thing we call life, someone will doubt you for something your passionate about. I don’t have to give examples; you know what I’m talking about and how it applies to you. While some criticism is a great way to get a full perspective, it can get a little excessive as well. Here are my tips on shaking off the haters:
- Realize you will have opposition before you start.
- Don’t react with an attitude; this just gives a hater more fuel. Keep it calm and keep smiling.
- Dare to be yourself.
- Be confident in your idea, plan or goal.
Dealing with haters definitely takes time to master. And definitely know that he more awesome you get, the more haters you'll have. People get jealous, plain and simple. Just know you’re awesome and don’t let it get you down. Awesome people like us don’t have time to waste on the hater-ade.
