Do you help the hater

12 replies
In my purpose in life it includes helping my friends my family and the community. Of course along the way you will have haters or people who like to shoot down your ideas and say things like your wasting your time get a job. When success finally happens do you help these people. Obviously at the time they are hating on you they are no better off then you are. What do you think I am torn.

    Helping people is helping people regardless whether good people or "hater people".

      If you use Jesus as your model, it's an easy answer. Even if that's not your inclination, the ability to turn the other cheek is one that is often not easy, but produces amazing results for you and others...

        Yes I made it a point to help these people as it frees me from the resentment I held towards them.

    Golf that is a good answer. At times I do feel resentment, yet I try and use that as fuel to prove them wrong. But I firmly believe in giving and helping others. And that is what I plan to do.

    That's been one of my fears of making money...

    Online, I know how to make enough to cover my bills. I live in a college town with relatively cheap rent (and roommates... > <) and my I. Must. Pay. This. bills total out to about $400 a month.

    Offline, I have been able to pretty much go "I don't have money for that..." and people'll just pay for it for me. I'm even in college for free having done that.

    I'm not real sure what I'm going to do when I have money!

    Don't pay any attention to them. Think in the positive and take action to avoid negative thinkers, unless they are family, then try to calmly convince them to think positively as well. To be grateful!

    I ignore haters, and personally wouldn't help them. Of course I am not guided by a religion so my viewpoint is somewhat different than others. Here's the thing, more often than not they need you to do the very thing they shot you down for to help them out with whatever they came to you for. Not worth the trouble:

      As a business man in the offline world let me explain this, there are certain laws that exist in this world that make a man successful and law that separate the truly successful from those you experience it for a short time.


      It is not a matter of religion, the law of helping others when they are in need, regardless of previous attitude is very profitable. My friend you will limit your success if you only allow your growth through limited people.


      You have heard the old saying "its business it's not personal" Limiting who you will help is making it personal. As long as the person is in a place of true need of your services, and are willing to accept it openly you are ready to do business.


      Conduct business and you will profit in the long run. Most businessmen do business with several people that once were a nay sayer.

    It depends. If they want me to show them how I achieved the level of success I obtained, then I would help them. A lot times, people "hate" on what you do out of concern for your well-being (they don't want you to fail and try to discourage you) or they are afraid your success will change the dynamics of the relationship (a man becoming insecure over the fact that his wife/girlfriend suddenly makes more money than him). If the person sincerely wants help in improving their situation, I would help.

    However, if they only want a free ride, then no I wouldn't help.

    I would definitely help them. Sometimes they are the reason why we're working hard to achieve our goals. Let's just prove to them that they are wrong!

    The Lord Jesus Christ said love those that hate you, how better to do that then by helping them in some way.

    Just a thought
