Reputation is becoming more relevant to your ability to attain greatness this days. You need people for you to be great in life. You need the right people to be truly progressive, successful and fulfilled.
Dislike for others is not human nature, it is formed from human mind based on nurture, experience and formed opinions on matters relating to someone.
People don’t just dislike you. However, when people dislike you it is based on an opinion they hold and conclusion they draw about you. These opinions may not be correct. Why is this so? It is simply because liking or hating someone is a reaction and not an action.
When people love or hate you, it is triggered consciously or unconsciously, it may not even be your fault. For instance, people can dislike you because of your tribe, ethnicity, religion, race, your wealthy background or because you are generally doing well in life. These are not your fault, yet they choose to dislike you.
Being aware of this put you in position to determine or control your relationships. Having the understanding that love and hate are people’s reaction to you can help in conducting your behavior, dispositions and demeanor and you can make people like you.
As human, our first inclination is to dislike those who dislike us and plot to hurt those who plan to hurt us. This may sound valid but in the long run is not profitable.
You need enough peace in your life to progress fast and achieve much. Quarrels, troubles and conflict can be distracting and overwhelming, you need to preserve and deploy your energy for more useful, valuable and more rewarding ventures. What you need to do is to refuse to react to anything negative done to you. This can be tough but it is the best thing to do.
Instead of reacting, simply respond by seeking the way forward for yourself, even if the perceived hater gain from the process.
Life has a sweet way of rewarding people for the evil they do to others. You should take care of yourself while life takes care of them. As long it depends on you, let no man have a genuine accusation of wrong doing against you. Guard your reputation even outside your workplace. It wins eventually. Mange your repuation!
