The Opposite of Love

Remit Sethi writes the longest emails of any marketer I’ve ever read.

The name of his website is I Will Teach You To Be Rich, which is without a doubt the scammiest business name imaginable.  But he’s the real deal and he’s helped a lot of people.

One of his favorite things to do is respond to people who attack him for having no credentials.

I could never do this.  My business occasionally gets one star reviews online and it kills me every time.

I have half a book written on shoe fitting and eight podcasts ready to be released.  They haven’t been worked on in months.  Why?  I’m afraid of what people will say.

I suppose if you’re in the public eye you will never get everyone to like you.  But maybe it’s not such a bad thing to be disliked.  At least you know you’re striking a chord with someone.  And maybe having an impact.

Because if you’re not making an impact why are you even here?

Elie Wiesel, Nobel Prize winner and Holocaust survivor said it best: “The opposite of love isn’t hate.  It’s indifference.”

So quit hiding.  Go make something.  Even if people hate it.
