Real simple today… Haters are gonna hate and leaders are gonna lead. Some people can’t stand to see you do well. They’ll support you all the way until you get to a certain point, then as soon as it’s clear that your vision surpasses their’s, they switch up on you. Going from supporter to heckler. This series offers what leaders can do to deal with this situation. Today is our final installation, maintaining the momentum.
Part 4 – Maintain the momentum – The best part of having hater’s is that they’ll let you know when you’re on the right track. Once you identify haters and fix your perception of them, you will clearly see their flawed vision. Your goals make them feel insecure. You have to stay on the path. Keep going. Don’t let them stop you or steal your dreams. When you look back on your life, you don’t want to say, “I wish I had done this or that, but that person convinced me that my idea was dumb. How sad will that be?
If God puts something on your heart, see it through. His purpose on this earth will be fulfilled. So if you don’t do it, someone else will. How will you feel, if you see someone else living out your dream, because you were afraid?
Remember – Hater’s live from a position of fear and anger. Leaders live from a position of power and love. Surround yourself with those who love you. They will give you the best criticism, because the intent will be to make you a better leader.
Ultimately, they hate you because they want to be you or they don’t understand you.
You’re a leader. A “boss in the middle” of this crazy world, with a purpose. Don’t let the haters win.
