“Don’t let the opinions of the average man sway you. Dream, and he thinks you’re crazy. Succeed, and he thinks you’re lucky. Acquire wealth, and he thinks you’re greedy. Pay no attention. He simply doesn’t understand.”  – Robert G. Allen

In life, you are going to receive hate, pessimism, and negativity from other individuals. As many of you probably already know, this holds especially true in the arena of network marketing.

So, what should you do?

The way I see it you have two choices. You can choose to bow to the negativity or choose to ignore it. Pleasing everyone is out of the question. This does not mean that you should ignore all criticism; constructive criticism makes you better.

The goal is to master the art of differentiating between the two. Most the time, people who are criticizing you, do so because your efforts towards bettering your life are a mirror showing them their own laziness or lack of initiative. Be different, standout, and own it!

I will leave you with this quote from Darren Hardy: “To me, what’s popular is average, it’s what’s common.  Common things deliver common results.”
