I was on hotnewhiphop.com the a while ago, which is a site that puts out all the new rap songs that come out on that particular day. When you go to the site you can click on songs, listen, and comment on them. I saw a song by my favorite artist, Drake, so I get all excited and click on it immediately. As I am listening to the song, I scroll down through all the comments, and people bashing on him saying “the song sucks” “he is terrible” “overrated” and on and on. My first thought was, “Who the hell are these people? Why don’t I have their album? Why can they no be found on iTunes?” This absolutely enraged me! Which it shouldn’t have, really. They were not talking about me, so why should I get all defensive?

Time went by, and all of a sudden I had people coming after my College Body stuff. Saying I “spout off nonsense.. it is sad that I don’t know what I am talking about.. that they are just trying to teach me” and some other things that I took kind of personally. I was upset for a little while, and actually started to believe them. Then, all of a sudden, I got angry. Who the hell are these dudes? If they “know so much” why are they reading MY blog? A fan of MY page? They don’t have blogs, or websites, or anything! Knowing this, has had me SO frustrated with these assholes! The reason why it bothered me so much is because I could not understand them. My mind just does not work like theirs does. “I could NEVER search the web, just to find something that I did NOT agree with, just so I could comment negatively on it” I thought to myself. I do not have the time, energy, or lack of friends to go out and do that.

The fact is that people are going to hate you. It sucks. Especially for those of us who want to be liked by everybody. Unfortunately, somebody who is liked by everybody is not a successful person.. Maybe College Body isn’t a big deal, but the fact that it has haters makes me believe it is getting there! I have big plans for CB that are going to change people’s lives, and the haters will still be on the couch, with their laptops, with something up their ass, and full of hate for the world. As wonderful as that life sounds, it’s not my style.

My point of this blog is to encourage you to get some haters. Not by being an asshole, let me be clear, but by accomplishing something. Whether it is receiving strait A’s in your classes (people will hate you for it), being the fittest person in the gym (people will hate you), inventing something new (they will hate you), or whatever else it may be. To be the best, you must be hated, at least a little bit, as depressing as that sounds. Lebron James, the New England Patriots, Martin Luther King Jr, Gandhi, Barack Obama, Tom Brady, and Lil Wayne are all hated on everyday. You may have some “exceptional” reason of why you hate them, but you are still a hater. They are are successful individuals, and you all know who each one of them are because of their success. They didn’t get there without pissing people off, and it doesn’t seem, to me anyway, that any of them are “bad people”. Successful people keep a positive mindset, and people that nobody knows (haters) keep a negative mindset. That is what it ultimately comes down to. Positive people vs. negative people. So try to keep a positive mind, do something that you enjoy & are good at, and you will be successful.
