Ignore the Haters
FACT: Haters don’t really hate you. In fact, they hate themselves because you are a reflection of what they wish to be.
In life when you strive for greatness, you will come across people who will try to drag you down.
They will try to talk you out of your goals. They will tell you that what you’re attempting is a waste of time and that you’ll never be able to accomplish it. Pursuing your dream can be hard enough. You will come across many obstacles and experience many failures. It will be tempting to give up, but you definitely don’t need the negative input from others. They won’t like it when you don’t listen, and as a result may begin to chime in more with their disapproval.
But if you truly want to be your best, you must make your own decisions . . .
OR others will make them for you.
Letting others control your thoughts and actions just so they will like you is no way to live life, unless you want to be a robot. Just be yourself all the time. Showing your true colors will attract others who like you for the person you are and will support your efforts to succeed.
I leave you with this . . .
“A tiger doesn’t lose sleep over the opinions of sheep.”
