Lately the world seems to be full of haters according to those 25 and younger. If you listen to music and status updates on social networking sites, you’d think that “hating on people” was a full-time, well paying job. This is not a new profession, it’s just talked about more than ever.
Everyone is faced with a road block or negative energy when they’re trying to pursue something positive. When you’re clear on your mission no one can stand in your way unless you let them. Some people get so caught up in what other people are saying that they end up spending more energy trying to address “the haters”, than they do pursuing their goals. When this happens you end up working against yourself and losing sight of what’s important. The haters have been successful because you have become one of them.
Remember that for every one hater, there are 10 people cheering you on. Unfortunately, those people often get overshadowed. Rely on these folks for positive reinforcement to stay focused and keep it moving. Kick dust on the haters by not giving them the time of day. I can’t say that I have any haters because I spot them early in the game and then move as far away from them as I can. I only know the amazing friends and family who support me.
Focus on your path. Jump over road blocks. Surround yourself with good people.
