What should you do when someone sends you a hate filled message about you, your business, or something you said?
It made me upset the first time I got a message like that!
Why don’t they like me? What did I do to offend them?
You start to question whether you’re doing something wrong…and you’re tempted to back off your message.
But that’s the wrong response.
There are just some people out there who LOVE being offended.
They’re professionals at it.
And they spread their venom all over everyone else because they hate themselves so much.
How dare you have an exciting life and try to help others?
They want you to be just as miserable as they are.
Instead of getting upset, celebrate when you’re sent a hate filled email.
It means you’re doing something right.
For everyone who hates you, there are 10 others who love you.
I get more concerned when I’m not getting any negative responses.
I’ve been doing business full-time online now for 20 years!
If you conquering new mountains, helping clients, and sharing a message that’s valuable to people…you’re going to have people who get mad at you.
It just comes with the business.
I remember one guy who was on my email list. Every week he’d send me a message about how much he hated what I said in the most recent email. He disagreed with me and thought I was an idiot.
Every one of my emails had a little link at the bottom you could click and opt-out…and maybe this guy just couldn’t find the link.
So I hit the link for him and removed him from my list. Within 2 weeks, he emailed me asking why I hadn’t sent out any new emails recently.
He was sitting there WAITING to be offended.
It seemed like it was one of the highlights of his week.
But you don’t have to suffer that kind of attitude from people.
If someone is sending you hate filled messages, delete them. Remove them from your list. Block them from your site.
Keep being awesome.
If you try to censor everything that could offend someone today, you’ll never share anything online.
In business, it’s all about knowing and attracting your customers.
It’s not about appealing to everyone.
You can build a million dollar business by attracting a small subset of customers who love you.
And that requires you to be who you are…and share a message that resonates with the right people.
