Top 6 Reasons John Salkowski Loves His Haters and Why You Should Too!

If you are constantly pushing the envelope to be more, to achieve more, to become more, you’ll have haters! Haters are a good thing. If you have haters, you’re doing something right. If you don’t have haters, you’re living a mediocre life. You’re not living up to your true potential. You’re not doing enough to mix things up. If you don’t have haters, you’re just coasting on bye and you never, ever want to just be coasting on bye.

I love my haters for multiple reasons and this is why you should too.

1) Haters hate themselves ~ Haters hate because they can’t do what you do, they can’t be like you. They lack the qualities you have and it burns their assets. They have to bad mouth you because you’re doing something they can’t – achieving the success they could only dream of. Think about this for a minute: Who do you know that truly doesn’t want to live their dream? Haters hate because they don’t have what it takes to live their dream. They believe by hating you and spreading negative jargon about you they can make you stop doing what you do best, which is achieve levels of success they could only dream of or read about. But the fact is, they can’t. Their hating you only accomplishes one thing and one thing only: It makes lots of other people aware of you, it makes other people wonder who you are and what you’re doing that’s making a difference. Let’s face reality, haters intrigue others. Haters make people look at you and wonder why you’re hated. This world is filled with nosey people that want to know what everyone is doing. Haters bring publicity to you. They’ll visit your site, read your copy and tell others about you. You can always prove a hater wrong by continuing to be the success that you are. By continuing to be an outstanding success that makes a tremendous impact in others’ lives, you’ll actually allow that hater to attract new clients, prospects, members to your business. What did it cost you? Nothing! A jealous, unsuccessful fool that hates him or herself because they can’t do what you do. No sweat off your brow! Right?!

2) Haters are afraid ~ Think of all the famous haters in the world. No need for me to go into that because you know what I’m referring to. They all have one thing in common: Their afraid, afraid of change, afraid of failure, afraid of success, afraid of what people may think or say about them. If you have haters that means you’re doing something right. The more haters you have, the more you’re moving and shaking. You’ve all heard or read this quote: “The people, who think they’re crazy enough to change the world, are the ones who do.” Love your haters because it means you’re making a difference.

Note: What you are doing must be ethical, moral and with high standards. Anyone that cheats, scams, lies or steals should have haters. If you believe 100% in what you’re doing and that you’re making a positive difference in this negative world we live in, keep on doing it and do not allow your haters to convince you otherwise!

3) Turn your hater into a fan ~ Haters hate because of issues with themselves, not issues with you. We must remember this. It’s sad, however this society we live in doesn’t want anyone to have or be any more than them. Everything they do or say has an underline issues with their past. Don’t stoop to their level. Remain professional and stay on course at all times. Continue striving to impact the lives that need and want you in their lives. Don’t lash back at them, instead reach down with your hand and help them up.

4) Haters keep you sharp ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger once said, “Who do you want to be? What makes you happy? Think outside the box. Why be like everyone else and avoid trouble. Break the rules, not the laws but the rules. Don’t be afraid to fail. Don’t be afraid to make decisions. Don’t allow anyone to tell you that you can’t do something. If he would’ve listened to his haters, he’d still be yodeling in the Austrian Alps. Why you’re out their partying, someone is out their working hard. You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets”! Continue to master your skill, stay sharp, and always be learning. But most important remain humble.

5) Don’t take your haters personally ~ You must realize what they say about you doesn’t matter. Ignore these people. Only you can change the way you feel. If you allow others to influence your mood or personality, they won and you lost! Nothing is personal. It’s only personal if you allow it to be personal. It’s part of the success journey. It’s part of the business. Only you know what truly matters in life.

6) Let the haters be the fuel for your furnace ~ Work harder than ever before. Allow these haters to propel your success to unbelievable heights. This is what they truly want for you. Just remember that!
