They Won’t Like Your Work

From the very moment you put your work out in the public, you’re going to get two types of responses: praise and hate.

Hate is public. Haters criticize others to have their criticism seen, heard, and known. ‘Look at me, I don’t like your work’ is what they actually mean by ‘Your work sucks!’

Praise and appreciation are something that happens in private. Your biggest fans will never be as loud as your biggest haters. But they’ll follow your tweets. They’ll read your newsletters. They’ll buy your products. They’ll recommend it to their best friends.

Hate is public. Praise is private. To succeed, you need both. Keep on going.
