The more successful you become, the more “haters” will come forward. Stay focused. Ignore them and run your own race. Don’t waste time engaging in battles that don’t matter. Some people will never celebrate you. Be kind and considerate to everyone, but don’t waste time trying to win over the “haters.” Some people will never like you or understand you. Don’t waste time on revenge or defending yourself. It will take you away from achieving your goal. –Joel Osteen paraphrased.
