7 Signs You Might Attract Haters (But It’s Not Your Fault)

7 Signs You Might Attract Haters (But It’s Not Your Fault)

Success is growth and progress. However, for some people it is a time to throw stones at you and find out what truly makes you tick. While you may find this strange, it is important to know why you are hated when you are making such progress. Moreover, it is astounding to find out that having such haters is not a signal of shortcomings, but rather a new identity of growth for you. Yes, it may not be your fault that you have all these haters, but it is your responsibility to find out why you are being hated.

You are an outside the box thinker

You do not have conventional solutions to problems. Instead, you think outside the box and creatively find solutions. The truth is that many people can feel uncomfortable with the unconventional and want something that is the norm. Being conventional and like everyone else means approval. Thinking outside the box and doing something out of the ordinary will definitely garner negative reviews from those whom instead of seeing this as brilliant, sees it as bemusing.

You have an interesting life

“Haters don’t really hate you, they hate themselves; because you’re a reflection of what they wish to be.” – Yaira N

It seems haters love to be spectators rather than participants. The truth is that they may rarely have success in their own lives and want to live some kind of success through your eyes. Seeing you achieve feats they cannot achieve or are too laid-back to accomplish makes them feel uncomfortable, so they target you to make up for their deficiencies.

You are bold

You are fierce, relentless, and a risk taker. You do not wait for the button to be punched. Instead, you punch the button and take action when necessary. For some reason, you are not willing to live a life of mediocrity or banality. Instead, you are willing to push and take what you deserve.

You attract attention

You do something that makes people adore you. You are loved. However, for others this is a time to gain popularity by attacking you. For the critics, attacking someone who is doing it just right means they can gain some attention too. It is just the way life is.

You have paid your dues

You have paid the price of becoming successful. It may have taken a lot of patience, discipline, effort, and hard work, but you paid your dues. Somehow, you have done things many never thought you could do or could be done. You sort of made possibilities out of impossibilities. This also gives haters the props to wonder how you could have done it.

You are strong

“A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.” – Vernon Howard

Hating you may just be the right channel for a hater to look for your Achille’s Heel. They use hating you to find out your weakness so they can exploit it for their own advantage as well. Strength on your part means that you have risen above the regular and are flying high.

You stand up for something

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” – Winston Churchill

Being hated means you have grown and matured enough to stand up for something. The truth is that people who live reasonably happy lives have no reason to hate. Haters are immature and want to stay that way even if it means getting in your face.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, while it is not good to criticize or be a hater, it is important to have haters as this shows you are on the right path for more success. Hating shouldn’t stop you, but motivate you even more to get those things you want.

50+ Best Motivational Quotes To Prepare You For Any Challenges In Life

Life is filled with highs and lows —happiness and struggles that will test your resilience and integrity, push you to overcome challenges and leave you with lessons that will make you even stronger on your way up.

It’s the way you feel and think about yourself, including your expectations and beliefs about what is possible to you, greatly determines everything that happens to you.

It all starts with your thoughts. When you change your thoughts, you transform the quality of your life. (Right, Nancy’s story is a typical example!)

Below is a list of the best motivational quotes to inspire you to start your day with a blast:
