Top Three Ways to Handle Haters Without Losing Your Dignity

Will you agree with me that every now and then, you'll discover that a lot of haters surround you in a group where you belong? Or you supposed to belong?

You'll probably nodding your head right now.

I've experienced a lot of people who are always trying to get ahead of others by hurting their fellows. They don't want your promotion. They're threatened of your success, even if it's just a small one. They're not contented of what they have and tend to feel envious of you. They will say side comments in front of you that they thought you won't hear it. But you did.

Since haters gonna hate, all you really need is to be prepared for their next attack. At least now, you're fully aware that they're trying to be nice to you but actually fail in hiding their facial expressions. Their eyes say it all. Right?

Here are the top three ways to handle haters without losing your dignity. Don't get your hands dirty because of these people. They're not worth your time.

1. Don't react directly to any attack.

Be subtle. Wait for that perfect moment to give a deafening reply that will make your opponent so ashamed to even say a word or raise an eyebrow.

2. Delay your anger. 

You can better think of strategies to defeat your opponents if you have plenty of time to find the right move. It will also help you look dignified, something that your enemy will be afraid of.

3. Be humble.

You're going to use this trick wisely, though. Sometimes people will trample on your rights because you're too lenient on them.

I've given you simple ways to stay dignified in front of pretentious, jealous and sarcastic individuals. Make sure to learn from your experiences and be wise in dealing with other people. Take care!

How to Maintain Your Upwork Profile in 2018

I've started working through Upwork since 2012 and a lot of things changed since then. I just joined the platform to prepare for freelancing in the future [which is right now] and it really helped me to be patient about anything freelance. Here are a few things that you should remember in maintaining your Upwork profile this 2018.

1. Always find work and get paid to avoid your profile to become private that will not allow potential employers to find you via search.

This is basically a new rule for me and I never heard anyone talking about this one. I just discovered this when my profile was turned to private by Upwork after not having income for more than three weeks, I think, and it was really a huge change on my freelancing activity. So now I learned to have at least 2-3 clients every week.

2. Check the background of the employer first before starting to sending an application letter or submitting a proposal. You can do so by checking the reviews about the potential client and read all the comments. In that way, you'll have an idea on what type of client you'll be dealing with in the future.

3. Maybe, you can start applying work of clients that have already invested a lot at Upwork. In that way, you can avoid those who can't pay or those who have no plans of paying you in the first place.

4. Be mindful of your reviews. I usually provide positive reviews for clients who really gave me a smooth, meaningful and profitable working experience. They usually provide remarkable rating in return.

In closing, make sure to develop a good working relationship with your clients. Obviously, your rating or job success will go down if some clients will give you low rating.

Happy freelancing! 💓
