Here I’m going to make a confession.
To the haters: thanks for all the hate.
Why do I say that?
They make me stronger. While the compliments are feed the ego, compared to the criticism they don’t help as much. We thrive on feedback; that’s how we make our product better.
The people who have given feedback are those who have a problem and are unsatisfied; they want improvement and so do we.
And the haters, I learnt that not everybody necessarily would have the best interests for you and not everyone wants you to succeed. There will be people out there who will be jealous at you for rocking the boat, undermine your capabilities, stereotype and judge you… but whatever, they make me want to prove them wrong.
