Become Insensitive To Haters

hater

What’s up ? This is THE stephane ANDRE !!! I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and I learned some good stuff.

To be successful, it’s really necessary to have the ability to ignore haters, especially on internet.

Beginners are unaware of the emotional impact that haters can create and it can also scare people who want to start their company online. When you develop your internet presence, avoid haters is impossible.

Hater

A hater is a person who feels the irresistible urge to send you a message by email, comment or tweet to tell you :

  • You’re the stupidest and ugliest person in the world

  • Your content is the most insignificant thing since the creation of the planet earth

  • That he/she hopes that you don’t make children to not spread the evil on the planet earth and that you die quickly

These 3 things are what say haters in general.

The truth is, you can’t avoid that. Select one of your favorite artists, athletes or actors, check out one of his/her video on Youtube and read the comments. You can see the quality’s level of comments and it makes people lose faith in humanity. And it’s not just haters, there are also people who tell a lot of bullshit and insult each other.

A hater is a person who is bored and has no purpose in life, so that person is trying to create trouble in your community and psychologically impact you in a negative way. Fortunately on social media, it’s possible to ban haters.

Don’t be afraid

don't be afraid

I know many people who want to create a blog, a podcast or a Youtube channel but they’re afraid of having a bad buzz. I know a medical student who wants to create something to help students who are in 1st year of medical school but he still doesn’t do anything. This is the same situation as people who never drive because they are afraid of an accident or people who never take a plane.

It’s important to understand :

  • It’s extremely unlikely

  • Even if you have a bad buzz, you’ll survive

  • In any case, you will build a community that will support you.

When you look at the biggest bad buzz in history, it’s rare to see that the sales falls caused the bankruptcy of the company (or maybe you know a case I don’t know). Sometimes there are people who have been a bit traumatized by a bad buzz but in the majority of cases, there is little damage.

The best revenge you can have for haters is to have a good life. To be afraid of the haters that make you afraid to act, that you’re paralyzing, it’s showing to the world that it’s you who are leaving intimidated by something that is very unlikely to happen.

Haters are also called « Keyboard warrior » because generally haters allow themselves to make type of criticism about people on internet but they are unable to do in real life, face to face. They’re comfortable behind their keyboard because they suffer no consequence.

So don’t be intimidated by the keyboard warriors and what I recommend you to do, it’s to keep a bottle of champagne to celebrate your first hater. It’s important to know that having haters is a necessary step in your success. Having your first hater is a sign that you’re on the right track because you’re disturbing someone.

Constructive criticism

Among this ton of negative comments (95%), there are also critics who can help you improve. To identify these critics, you must ask yourself this question : « What is the intention of this criticism ? Do I feel that the person wants to help me ? ».

If you feel that the criticism of the person is to help you, you can analyze the criticism and see if you can do something that interest you. If not, you can ban the person. Unfortunately, you’ll see that the majority of critics are not made to help you.

Remember that about haters :

  1. They’re inevitable

  2. They’re a sign of your success. Everyone has haters, even the people you admire the most

  3. They’re keyboard warriors. They say things that he/she doesn’t allow himself/herself to say in real life, face to face.

  4. Keep a bottle of champagne for the day you’ll have yor first hater

  5. To identify constructive criticism, ask yourself this question : « Is there a positive intention in this criticism to improve myself ? ».

Data Science Underrated Job

data science

I have just enrolled in a Data Science course on Udemy  and I learned good stuff.

I know you’ve heard many times « Look this one, this is the job of the future ! ». The simplest thing I can do is explain why it’s interesting to learn about Data Science. This is extremely useful skills for the future.

The principle is that the more data there is, the more work there is for Data Scientists. Let’s look at the amount of data created in the world in the past, present, and estimate for the future.

130 Exabytes have been created by humans since the beginning of humanity until 2005. Ok, you didn’t understand. Don’t worry, it was the same for me. Let’s go back to the source.

Measuring data

measuring data

The source, it’s 1 byte (1B) and 1 byte is the necessary place for a hard drive to hold a letter. For example, the letter « S » = 1 byte (1B).

You go to the next level and you multiply 1 byte (1B) by 1000 which gives you 1 Kilobyte (1Kb). A book’s page contains between 2000 and 5000 letters so we can say that a half of page of text is about 1 Kilobyte (1Kb).

You go to the next level and you multiply 1 Kilobyte (1Kb) by 1000 which gives you 1 Megabyte (1Mb). A 500 pages book is about 1 Megabyte (1Mb).

You go to the next level and you multiply 1 Megabyte (1Mb) by 1000 which gives you 1 Gigabyte (Gb). A human genome (coded) can be contained in 1 Gigabyte (1Gb).

You go to the next level and you multiply 1 Gigabyte (1Gb) by 1000 which gives you 1 Terabyte (1Tb). If you take an HD camera and take a picture every day, every hour for 80 years. All videos can be contained in 1 Terabyte (1Tb).

You go to the next level and you multiply 1 Terabyte (1Tb) by 1000 which gives you 1 Petabyte (1Pb). If you take all trees of Amazonian forest to make paper and you write text on both sides each paper, all this paper represents between 1 and 2 Petabyte (1-2 Pb).

You go to the next level and you multiply 1 Petabyte (1Pb) per 1000 which gives you 1 Exabyte (1Eb). All existing data on planet Earth is contained in 1 Exabyte (1Eb).

More more more data

more data more problems

I think now you understand better how we measure the amount of data in a hard drive. At first, I told you that 130 Exabytes (130 Eb) created by humans from the beginning of humanity until 2005.

In 2010, this increased to 1200 Exabytes (1200 Eb). In 2015, this increased to 7900 Exabyte (7900 Eb). The forecast for 2020 is that this will increase up to 40 900 Exabyte (40 900 Eb).You see how data creation is growing in the world, it goes very very fast.

With a graphic, it’s easier to visualize all that.

data science forecast graph

The blue line on the graph corresponds to the quatitiy that machines (computers) can sore. You see, there is much more data than what computers can store.

The red line corresponds to what Data Scientists can process as data. You see, there is much more data than Data Scientists can process.

Another important point is that the gap between the machines and the Data Scientists will increase over time.

There are very few Data Scientits in the world and because they’re rare, they’re expensive or their salaries are high.

As companies increasingly seek ou Data Scientists, universities and engineering schools are beginning to offer this type of trainining.

The fact that the number of data increase, the companies demand to have Data Scientist to proccess data also increase. This demand is so enormous that it’s expected that in dozen years, everyone will know the Data Science’s basics as the programming now.

I advise you to do research on Data Science, you’ll see, it can be used in any industry, it’s really interesting.

Two Words To Improve The Life

two words

I read a Nerd Fitness article  and there is good stuff.

The last time you stopped a book at the half ? The last time you walked away during a movie ? The last time you stopped a video game before you beat it ?

« Finish what you start ! », that what my parents tell me and I think is the same thing for you. The good new is parents don’t have right all time. In fact, there is a lot of reason why we need to stop something we haven’t finished.

Here two words that allow us to stop things we don’t like to do : Stop and No, thanks.

Must finish

must finish

Human being like progress. We like check empty boxes and say : « It’s done ! ».

I’m sure, if you begun a book, movie or tv show several days ago, you will do everything to finish it. You want to finish it even if you don’t like it, just to say : « it’s done ».

Remember, ours lives on this earth are limited, so, we need to spend the maximum of time to do things that make us happy. Say : « I need to finish it » is not applicable.

This phenomenon is : « I already begun or I already paid, now I must finish ! ». It’s called « Sunk Cost Fallacy » and there is a good explanation in LifeHack .

Think of all the things you begun and after you realized that is not interessting but you continue to the end like tv shows, books, projects, restaurant’s meal, a crappy relationship or you career (watch this TED’s video  ).

It’s OK to stop to do crappy things in your live to do things that make you happy. It’s not because you begun that you must finish.

We know guts is necessery to have long term success, but spend time and energy to do things with stubbornness and obstinacy isn’t the recipe for success.

We do things in ours lives because we simply begun to do them one time. Stop everything is useless, but stop things we don’t like to do can allow us to use this time and this energy to improve things we like to do.

Say No, it’s cool

say no

Did you watch Jim Carrey’s movie « Yes Man » ? Do you do like Jim Carrey ? Do you do things out of obligation or because you’re afraid to miss anything incredible ? The truth is your life is a piece of shit if you say « yes » to everything.

Say « No » to opportunites, trips and request look terrifying. When you say « No », you ask yourself if you miss something great. But this allow you to focus on important things like take care of yourself, take care of your health and spend time with people who are important for you.

Eric Barker talk about it in his blog   :

« No » creates focus.

Warren Buffett once said : « The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say « no » to almost everything ».

And that’s what gives them the time to accomplish so much.

Everything is said. We should stop to say « yes » out of obligation. How many nights you went and it was sucked ?

« No, thanks » allow you to avoid to do not interesting things to focus to spend time with family/best friends, improve a skill or an exercice or to learn to cook a health meal.

No, thanks

no thanks

Everyone complains to don’t have enough time in a day, but we don’t take time to select what is important and what is not important.

Here is a manual to is from today :

  • Stop something – Stop a book, a movie, a project that doesn’t interrest you anymore

  • Say « No » to something – Say « No » to something that you do usually out of obligation and spend your time to do something important or something that makes you happy.

In my case :

Pour mon cas :

  • Stop something – I unsubscribed me from several YouTube channels. Now, I have only YouTube channels that teach me something. I subscribed to 18 YouTube channels and it’s perferct.

 

  • Say « No » to something – I say « No » to a party (reunion) with old students of the primary school. I have enough with parties where everybody repeat same memories. However a old friend put me a word on my door, blablablabla but no. Instead I recover and I’m learning the human anatomy to learn deeply how muscles work during training. Serioulsy, it’s cool.

 

What did you stop and said « No, thanks », this week ?
