Don't let the Haters Win
Updated: May 23
Don't let the negative comments influence your decisions. Believe in yourself and your goals to make them happen
There are always going to be haters putting you down.
You aren't tall enough
You aren't good enough
You aren't smart enough
That is a stupid idea
That will never work
Stick to your day job
"My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength." - Michael Jordan
So many successful people were told they couldn't succeed:
Michael Jordan cut from High School Basketball Team
Steph Curry is too small for the NBA
Damon John (FUBU) couldn't develop a clothing line for the rap industry
Oprah Winfrey couldn't be the first main stream black women daytime tv host
Each person faced constant negative comments and haters. Did they let this hold them back? No, they put their heads down and worked that much harder. They overcame adversity by shunning the negative comments. They had tunnel vision to continue forward with their goals.
Yes these are lofty comparisons, but let's take it to everyday life for us.
1. You don't think you will get that promotion or job you want?
Tell the hiring manager you are interested. Look for the jobs online on the company's website. Ask for extra assignments to show your commitment and deserve it!
2. That company you want to start will never work
Start connecting with others in the industry to learn what it takes. Join networking groups and other industry events to start getting your idea out there. The initial work is on you to make it happen. Others will jump onboard when they see how successful you are
3. That weight gain or decrease will never happen
This is 100% in your control. Control your calorie intake. Control your exercise regime. It is hard to give up on habits and start new one. But you will make it happen with your determination and will to succeed
4. That trip you want to plan will never happen because it's to much money
You may need to cut back on some spending. You may need to take a second job. There will be obstacles to overcome, but you can overcome with hard work. When you are on that trip enjoying the fruit of your labor, you will enjoy the experience that much more knowing you made it happen
Don't let the negative comments hold you back. You control your fate and you will make it happen with the right mindset
I believe in you. Believe in yourself and you will see your goals accomplished!
