Hello Awesome People!
I have had this Conversation with hundreds of people (including Clients) over the years – the Age Old Issue that “the more Successful you become, the more Critics you will have.”
This used to really mess with my head and this whole Issue ended today as I have to hand it to the Awesome Fern HF Chang for the quote she shared, I think of the century which sums it up:s
“I used to care what People Thought about me, until One Day, I tried to Pay my Bills with their Opinions.”
This is Pure Logical Gold and in the last 3 months (mostly this year), I have had a handful of Vocally (yet totally wrong) Silly Critics make up stuff to bring me down and Slam me Unfairly to other People. Even though I have hundreds of Supporters on my side, their Attacks brought up a lot of Childhood and Deep Down Issues when it comes to “Needing Approval” and “Acceptance” and the like.
When it comes to Personal Growth and Development, I got over it, and thinking about my Awesome Clients it’s a common Challenge that many of us deal with throughout our lives. No matter how awesome we are and how we helpful we try to be (even Mother Theresa had people who hated her), you will never be able to please everyone you come across in life, and are always going to get the odd Critic/Hater coming up with Negative Comments about you.
Be it for their own Personal Insecurities & Issues, Agendas or whatever Excuses – Who Cares!
All it really Comes Down to is this Awesome Quote: “Do their Opinions Help Pay Your Bills?” – No! What really matters is that the Right People who are Truely on your side will Stay by Your Side through Thick and Thin, always be Willing to Help You Out and yet, you are always Perceived to be an Equal who will be there for them when the Opportunity to Help Arises.
My Advice and Learnings from this Experience? Haters will be Haters. There will always be Haters no matter what, and what they have to Say about you has Nothing to do with your Ability to Pay your Bills and Success. No matter what they say, keep in mind that, just like they say “Any Publicity is Good Publicity”. And trust me, the Stats have shown that, this little incident has actually in Fact, a Positive Outcome in Increasing the Exposure of my Business to a Greater Audience 😉
