Here Come The Haters: What to Do When Jealous People Have Something To Say?

Haters are everywhere. You tell a friend or family member about your idea or your business and they say “I don’t see it, you should get a real job”. Or how about this one, “Your still trying to make that business work, when are going to give up?”

Here’s another scenario, your business finally starts to grow and you begin to climb the success ladder and here come the negative comments online. Or perhaps people that launched businesses with you who aren’t having success yet, stop speaking to you. Jealous people who can’t stand to see someone else rise to the top.

Frank Viola writes on his post “Haters Gonna Hate”

If you are making an impact on people’s lives, you will . . . (not might) . . . attract haters.

So if you don’t want any haters in your life, don’t speak, don’t write, don’t blog, don’t podcast . . . oh, and don’t breathe.

Haters are either fueled by jealousy, low self-esteem (which is trying to assert itself), or an inflated-ego (which has been bruised somehow and elicits bluster).

I’d love to hear from you what are your thoughts? Have you been hated on?

  • Haters make you Greater! They are always there, but we need them in a strange sort of way because sometimes they drive us to be the best we’ve ever been. Even when we question why they are Hatin’

    • Carol,

      I have to agree with you. Haters can be motivators. I guess the problem is so many people let the negative talk stop them from pursuing their dream instead of letting the comments push them forward.

  • I dunno why but the post made me chuckle. It’s definitely true! I often find myself zoning out of conversations with haters and begin wondering what their motivation is. That determines whether I’m going to give what they say ANY credence at all (because sometimes haters may actually have a considerable point). Again – motives.
    Enjoyed your post!

  • With the positive, unfortunately comes the negative. I try my best to surround myself with people who will not pop my happiness bubble. When others are negative, I try to look at it through the filter of – “They are suffering and projecting onto me. I feel sorry for them.”
