Do you shudder at the thought of having haters? Don’t worry — it’s completely normal!
Love them or hate them, everyone who’s doing anything in life has them! And the more important things you’ve got going on, the more “haters” you’re going to get. That’s just the way it is.
But how do you deal with all the criticism, hate and negativity? Inside the training today, we’ll dive deeper into what YOU can do in order to come on top in style and with grace! Are you excited? Let’s go!
How to Deal with Haters Online and in Real Life
The Magnet Theory
So, the first thing you need to understand is that we’re ALL magnets.
When you attract some people, you’re also going to repel others. And that’s absolutely fine!
Those “haters” (or “dislikers” as we like to call them) might look at you as competition, as someone who’s doing something they don’t like, or even as someone who’s living out the dream they didn’t have the guts to pursue!
Fact of the matter is, if nobody’s talking about you, you’re not really doing anything worthwhile. So in the case that they are, that’s amazing news!

In other words — don’t pay attention to your haters and dislikers because they’re not worth your time, energy and effort. Instead, focus on the people who support you.
Because the truth is, people believe whatever they want to believe. And no amount of discussion or evidence to the contrary will ever convince them of something they refuse to even understand. So why bother?
Of course, that’s easier said than done. Especially, if the naysayer is your sibling, spouse or colleague. But just talk to them! They might actually be worried about you. So once you’ve got that out of the way, everything will be all right!

We’re coming to the heart of the issue. Have you noticed how some people who seem so nice, can be so hateful towards certain individuals, even if they’re supposedly friends?
That’s not because they’re bad people. It’s just they’re bitter because they’re reminded of what they could be doing… But they’re not because they didn’t have the courage to go after their dreams!
And maybe they actually have a valid reason for hating on your business. For example, they might not have had the greatest experience with a similar endeavor. So the best strategy here is to simply listen to their story. You never know — your positive attitude might turn their opinion around!
Critics Vs. Haters
This is a very important distinction!
Not everyone who’s negative towards you will be a hater. Sometimes people have genuine criticism. So try and listen to what they have to say. That way, you’ll increase your credibility because people will see you’re willing to improve and grow!
So look for those nuggets and learn how to differentiate between the two. For example, if several people tell you the same thing like, “Your pitch is too high and then too low”, try and adjust the volume of your mic or get a new one. But if someone tells you, “I don’t like your voice”… What can you do about it? Nothing, so move on!
Remember: you can control what you say but you can’t control how others feel about it!
These are a few simple tips that can save you a lot of time, energy and nerves. Because who needs more stress in their lives, right?
