I just scanned a negative review of an eBook on Amazon. 10 people agreed with it, finding it helpful.
Oh yeah; it is one of my 100 plus eBooks on the platform.
I hold one concept in mind as I scan negative reviews; every negative reviewer is in pain, and afraid. I am not kidding. I am just a mirror for their pain and fear, reflecting back to them what they dislike about self. Everything I create is solid, not spectacular. Every thing is honest, clear and genuine. So if someone posts a negative review that disagrees with my clear, honest, truthful view, it is not my happiness and honesty but their fear and pain and projection.
I have compassion for these folks because I know the feeling of pain, and being afraid, but I move on fast because I care not to be on their karmic sinking ship.
You Are the Mirror
Alonzo Pichardo is a highly successful web developer, network marketer and blogger. He builds an online business with integrity, being one of the best models of persistence and authenticity that we have online. Hands down, he is one of the most humble, generous, successful bloggers on earth.
He had to shut comments off on certain sites because critics-trolls-haters started spewing their ridiculousness. Why did they criticize him? Any guy who has the vision, generosity and patience to devote 10 years of their life to building an online business with the utmost integrity enrages terrified, pained people, who lack the vision, generosity, patience and overall vibe to do the same.
Alonzo is a mirror to these folks and they do not like what they see.
Ditto for me, scanning the 1 star review today and seeing 10 pained, afraid folks who agreed that the 1 star review was helpful. Of course; twelve 5 star reviews sit beneath the pained, afraid person and yep, people keep buying my eBooks.
I wrote and self-published an eBook on how to write and ship an eBook in 24 hours. I know how to do this because I have done it over 100 times. I share clearly how to do. The person who posted the negative review does not know how to do this – I have never heard of them – so the easiest way to try to unload their fear, pain, jealousy an envy for my accomplishment, my service and my pretty neat life of circling the globe is to post a negative, critical review. The 10 unknown folks who agree simply vibe from a similar energy of fear and pain.
I do not say “unknown” in a nasty, pejorative, “loser” or “nobody” light; I simply mean it is easier to take pot shots online when few people or nobody knows who you are….but those pot shots always come from fear and pain, not love and support.
Carry on, become more and more successful, give all your attention and energy to people who love what you do and release these folks for good. The sweet, luscious cream rises to the top and the heavy, leaden oil sinks to the bottom. Release negative reviewers because it makes zero sense to give your energy to afraid, pained people when loving, caring people promote your success.
Where your attention and energy goes, grows. Give your attention and energy to loving fans and you will accelerate your online success.
