#0006: Haters

Haters.  These are the people who will put you down when you’re trying to stay positive, tell you you can’t do something when you’re trying to achieve a goal, and call you all sorts of names whenever you successfully complete something.

And all I have to say is… THANK GOD FOR HATERS!

If you ever need to find motivation to accomplish something, try telling a few people what you are planning to do.  Listen to some of them as they give you comments that are less than motivating:

  • “There’s no WAY you’re going to be able to do that!”
  • “That seems next to impossible.  Are you SURE you want do go through with it?”
  • “You’re wasting your time!”

Isn’t it funny how hearing someone doubt your ability to do something actually ends up making you even MORE committed to going through with it? THAT’S WHY HATERS ARE SO VALUABLE!

Even when you get to a certain level of success, there will still be detractors that will make fun of you or doubt how much farther you can go – “Oh sure, they did this and this, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be able to do that next thing they told me about!”  The more they hate, the more motivation they actually provide for you to accomplish your next goal!

Ah, haters… now THAT’S something to be thankful for!
