The Stress Free Method For Handling Haters


“If you are really effective at what you do, 95% of the things said about you will be negative. Keep your head on straight, don’t get emotional, take the heat, and just make sure your clients are smiling.”-Scott Boras, widely regarded as the most powerful agent in professional baseball.

If you’re like the rest of us you have some people pissed off at you right now because you’ve did well, look well, or have acquired something they desire and don’t have. Don’t slow your blessed roll, keep doing exactly what you’re doing and let them become more pissed.

Now be careful with this folks. Don’t run out and recklessly start messing with people, that’s not what I’m saying. That’s irresponsible and can get you killed. As a matter of a fact, you don’t ever purposely set out to create haters. That won’t help your cause at all. Trust me though, if you are about something, doing something worthwhile, going somewhere in life, the haters will find you. Leave them alone, don’t stoop to their level, and you’ll find they will do the work for you. If the racist whites of the 50s & 60s had not kept so much noise about Dr. King, they would not have peaked the curiosity of the non-racist whites, who wound up supporting his movement thus giving it even more power.

Take for instance those of you that may have tackled some controversial topics. Controversy is a sure fire way to spawn some haters and piss off some people. The pissed off people are going to surely make some noise to defend their position (whether credible or not) which is going to trigger the interests of those that weren’t privy to topic at the outset. They want to know what’s gotten these people all upset, so they come to see. Hold your ground, be responsible and stay on your A game. Now’s the time to win some new friends, supporters, customers, thanks to the haters, and at the same time discredit the hater as well.

Your personal attributes or acquisitions have someone up on their hind legs? Well that’s not your problem. Whatever ever it is that’s gotten their fruit of the looms in a bunch, you make sure you keep it front and center. Don’t down play any positive attribute about yourself or life to pacify some jealous hater.

Someone hating on you because of your look, style, hair or physique should be one hell of a self-esteem and ego booster. So flaunt it if you’ve got it. Just don’t cross the confident and self-assured line unto arrogant. If it’s some material possession that has them all riled up, there is nothing you can do but enjoy the possession. Say it’s a dress; well now you have a sure shot idea of the style that looks good on you, thanks to the haters popping up. If they hate on your home, your vehicle, know then your house and vehicle must be the bomb.

Maybe you have a very successful job or business going on. Make sure it remains successful and on track. Don’t let what haters say or think have you second-guessing yourself. Keep doing what you are doing and let them stay pissed off.

Don’t get wrapped up in the haters. Enjoy the fruits of your labor and blessing and let them remain pissed.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.

  1. Not one you’ll find in the big book of management but I personally find that on the VERY rare occasion when needs must, one of the most stress-free if not cathartic methods of dealing with a serial hater is by using this weapon of choice against them to carefully plot their downfall.

    It IS wrong I know but in my defence, only two people have ever been on the wrong side of that fence. If there’s one to be had, I always prefer a straight forward and good, honest, clean fight but sometimes you might have to change tactics slightly. Keeping it simple and going about your work carefully and quietly away but without informing or embroiling others in your plans is a fantastic and cost efficient, ozone-friendly waste disposal system. 🙂

  2. I’m actually a really understanding, friendly and kind person with surprisingly high patience and tolerance levels believe it or not! I just have a different switch for anyone confusing my laid back, placid and easy going approach with being soft or weak.

    The fact they misunderstood my nature doesn’t bother me in the slightest. What gets my back up is knowing they’re the type to see someone’s good nature as an unmissable opportunity to be manipulative and unpleasant.

    More often than not it only takes a quiet word to straighten things up and put an end to whatever campaign someone has going on (which is the preferred method) but if and when they decide to just have one more go at pushing my buttons – that’s it. Roll the credits.
