How to Not Give a Fook About Negative Attacks

by Steven Kuo  - March 21, 2022

Critics, naysayers, haters. They're everywhere.

You will undoubtedly encounter these kinds of people on your road to success. These people will bring you down despite all your good intentions.


Try as you might, hurtful words can still bother you. It's hard to shut off hateful remarks.

But an executive warrior like you should not let these foolish people faze you. You must learn to stay motivated in the face of adversity and criticism.


My advice?

Don't give a fook about those negative attacks.

How can you do that?

The best thing you can do is create a healthy sense of boundary.

What does this mean?

Picture a tree. It's located on your property, and that means it's yours.

If it's in your neighbor's lot, then it's theirs.

But what happens if their tree grows over the fence and onto your side?

In some countries, if a tree comes over your fence, you have the right to chop it off. Clear boundaries.

Having boundaries is helpful for one's identity.

Now, let's go back to your haters. If you allow yourself to be beaten by them, that means you are allowing them on your side of the fence.

You can't let that happen.

Before anything else, observe. Become aware of what is happening around you.

To see more clearly, you can take one deep breath.



Those criticisms? Those attacks from haters?

You can chop those right off!

Remember that those hurtful words are not yours.

They choose to behave that way. They choose to hate.

It's their problem, not yours.

Do not associate their behavior with your own.

Let them say whatever they want. Your healthy boundary can protect you.

"Their words. Not mine."

"My actions, my control."

You will feel yourself calm down.

Do you know why? It's because you did not stoop to their level.

You are the bigger person. You are the better person.
