Have you ever had one of those moments when for no reason, out of no where, someone just didn’t like you? Recently I had someone Thumb Down one of my videos on YouTube. I just sat there wondering about it for a few minutes. They hadn’t left a comment stating what about it they didn’t like, it was just there. A Thumb Down!
That’s a little thing but a good example to use in this blog post. What do you do when someone doesn’t like you or disagrees with you? Do you get all bent out of shape and strike out in anger or sulk away to lick your wounds?
I accept that not everyone gets me and that’s OK. Honestly I don’t get everyone either. I don’t thumb down videos that I don’t agree with, I just move on to the next one. I do that with conversations, movies, interactions with people too. Nothing to get all tangle dangled up about. Just go on to the next offering OR better yet.. create an experience that is much more to your liking.
That’s what I did with the Thumb Down video. I went to Twitter and asked people to thumb it up for me. Quite a few did and I really appreciate that.
Moral of this story: let all the Thumbs Down in your life be little things that you just laugh about as you move into something you enjoy!
