Here’s the cold, hard truth. The more successful you are, the more haters you will have. It doesn’t matter, how good you are, how much good you are putting into this world … some people will just hate your guts. Of course, you are a bad person, it is normal to have a bunch of haters but being successful expect at least 2% of your tribe to simply hate you. And, it’s ok, you have to live with it, and get the most out of it!

Tony Robbins, who is my favorite coach told the audience in one of his events: “There are two ways to build the tallest building in town. The first way is to go out there and put a lot of sweat and effort and all of this stuff into something and build the tallest building in town. The second way is to go around to everybody else’s buildings and knock them down, and that way you’re the tallest one.” In fact … if you don’t have any haters, maybe it is because you are playing too small.

The more you do, the more you develop yourself, and your projects, the haters will come to try their best in hunting you down.

The more visibility you get, the more people will be against you. And this is actually a good thing. Usually, these people are full of frustrations, and instead of working on themselves, they just want to tear other people down. By doing this, they will feel much better about themselves. Can you believe this?

In most cases, the haters you will encounter in your business are these types of persons. One piece of important advice. No matter what you are doing, try to not be like these people, so tear other people’s buildings while building your business. We are in a capitalist world, aka a free market so the competition is always a great thing so do your best to focus on growth, and not on bringing other people down.

In fact, you should strive to overdeliver to your clients by creating amazing products, fantastic courses, and build life-changing coaching programs. Do always the extra mile so these people will simply become not relevant.

Push yourself, focus on your strengths, improve what you are doing, focus on progress, not perfection, and you will be more than just fine. Train harder and faster.

Leave these people alone, don’t focus on fighting against them as you will waste a lot of resources. They can’t…
