Your Need to Be Liked is Killing Your Business

Christian Martin

Are you one of those people who needs to be liked at all times, and if somebody doesn’t like you, it really bothers you? If that’s you, do you have the success you want in business? If you don’t, your need to be liked is stopping you from succeeding.

Thank about your favorite television show and your favorite actor. Think about how much you like them. Now, are there people in this world who don’t like that show and will trash talk it all day long? Are there people who hate everything about that actor? There are probably thousands of them.

Anything that people love, people also hate. There’s polarity in great things. If you ever want to do great things, you have to be okay with that polarity. You have to be okay with being hated in order to be loved.

For years, it was very hard for me to do things because of the threat of rejection. I didn’t want to take on clients unless I was positive that they were going to get amazing results. You can develop your skills over time to get better results, but it’s not possible to be 100% sure about anything in life

Clients that are in business and successful know that. They know that not everything works and that not everything needs to work. If you’re waiting to work with clients that will never be disappointed in you, you’re probably never going to get started. The only way to learn how to get results is to get out there and try.

I want to challenge you. You have to make it a goal to get your first hater. If you have zero haters right now, I know you’re not doing anything significant. I want somebody to be upset with you. I don’t mean you should be an asshole to people, but I want you to realize that the things you think are bad aren’t as bad as you think.

You’re never going to make everybody happy.
