Seven Great Methods to Deal with People who are Angry with and/or Jealous of You - We all run into folks who are jealous and/or are angry with you and your family due to your success, position in life or standard of living. Here are some basic principles to fall back on to so one can deal with these issues.

1. It does not matter how many folks don’t understand or get what you are trying to accomplish. The key is how many people do understand what you are doing, appreciate and recognize your work.

2. Maintain a  positive attitude at all times and constantly strive to improve no matter what some folks say.

3. At least 10 % or more of people will find a way to take what you are doing as a personal insult to them. Always be ready for this issue and count on it happening.

4. You can not expect everyone is going to like you. Per Colin Powell “Trying to get everyone to like you is a sign of Mediocrity”. So what if some folks don’t like you. Don’t lose any sleep or waste time worrying about folks who don’t like you.

5. If you are extremely effective at what you do most comments about you by others will be negative. Usually the best folks in any given field are always the ones getting the most criticism.

6. Living extremely well is always the best revenge. Ignore the comments of haters and show how much fun you are really having. This will drive the haters absolutely nuts.

7. Always be calm, cool and collected no matter what the situation. Remember the old kids line of Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me.

Great advice and I also think the positive attitude is most important.  That is something no one can take away from you.

                 I just love this; especially #4 I am a big Colin Powell fan we need him to run for President. I learned early in life from my 1st boyfriend's father a life lesson that has always served me well. If someone says something unkind or untrue about you do not worry that is because they have so little in their own life; go find the people that you care about and tell them the truth and you will find that these people will not have beleived what was said and insinuated. Oh so true this man was just a wise man; he was a high school teacher and a retired Lt. Colonel from the US Air Force those words have served so true.

This is all so true but it's very hard to stay focused when you have so many people picking on you.  I used to take it very hard when 1-2 people would dismiss me or be snarky, compared to the many others who supported me.  It's take a few years but I've since learned, as you note, that you have to ignore the negative commentary and plowed ahead.
