Growing up in the Bible-belt of Midwest Indiana; between Notre Dame’s somber Catholic chants and football cheers and experiencing South Bend’s Pentecostal and Baptist praises and shouts, it was quickly learned that religion and tradition are somewhat synonymous. Within most institutional walls are tradition and a certain way of keeping it alive. You must do, say, and act in a way that represents that united cultural front, be it religious or secular. For some, it even started in our homes.
Families who take pride in their name encourage relatives to live up to a particular standard or brand. The same often applies to your job, place of worship, and such. Anything outside the box of traditional standards are not always fully embraced. People who have a passion to do something other than that “norm” become an anomaly.
The book Conquering Haters, Dealing with Negative People identifies nine characteristics of negative personalities that are commonly known as “Haters”. Successfully identifying these characteristics and understanding how they intermingle will better equip one to conquer the Haters in their life. In addition, Conquering Haters, Dealing with Negative People talks about finding your identity, building and sustaining self-confidence, promoting a positive self-esteem, and giving credit where it is due, all the while remaining diligent in self-improvement.
Conquering Haters, Dealing with Negative People is scheduled to release August 2012.
