Why people say JT Foxx Scam when he is so successful
We all know how the story goes; as soon as an entrepreneur or a company makes it up there, many people want to see them come down. For some reason, success awakes jealousy and hatred. This also happened to JT. As soon as his success became well-known, people started calling him JT Foxx scam, and online smear campaigns with false allegations were launched.
WHY are successful people hated, and how to deal with that?
Why do we struggle to celebrate someone’s success instead of learning from it and creating our own success stories? Could some people think that they are more deserving and capable of it and find it unfair for that reason? Others might be frustrated with trying and failing many times in their own career and become jealous of someone else’s success?
Some billionaires and multi-millionaires are reluctant to share their success stories knowing that someone will want to chop it off if you raise your head above the weeds. And it is a universal phenomenon. In Australia and New Zealand, it is called a tall-poppy syndrome when people who stick out of the crowd are mocked and “cut down” like the tall poppy.
It wasn’t any different for the well-known coach JT Foxx. It troubled him at first when he heard that people called him JT Foxx scam and a fraud. When he asked the accusers where they heard that, they usually responded that their friend’s cousin’s brother went to one of his events or something along those lines. It was always the third-party information like in a telephone game when the final message ends up being completely different from when you first started. Instead of going off of someone else’s experience, be your own judge.
- Whoever tries to bring you down is below you.
- Haters don’t hate you, but they hate themselves because you are reflecting what they want to be.
JT’s coach compared the haters with crickets: “Crickets make a lot of noise; you hear them, but you can’t see them. Then, when you walk past them, they’re quiet. At least the cockroach doesn’t pretend to be anything else. I know where it stands”.
If you have a hard time dealing with people who only seem to want to see you fail, here is JT Foxx’s advice to you:
- These people can’t achieve anything themselves, and they want to tell you that you can’t do it either.
- Many people hate you because they can’t afford your product or service.
“A successful person has no time to send great, lengthy emails about how happy they are. Successful people are too busy with their lives, whereas negative people are not busy and up at 1 am writing three pages of disaffection comments”, JT Foxx.
And the haters are never satisfied. JT founded many companies and created many jobs; he helped thousands worldwide through his coaching and did a lot of charity work, but the haters wouldn’t give him any respect for that. No matter what he does, they will never be happy until they see him fail and continue to call him JT Foxx scam.
What is JT’s response to that? “For those who hate, show me your resume; show me what you have done; show me how you have impacted the lives of others and how much you have given to charity. I don’t pretend to be better than anyone else, but I bust my ass every day to make sure I get results and to change people’s lives”.
John F. Kennedy once said, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
Here are some further tips from JT Foxx for you to be able to rise above the haters:
- Fire negative people from your life.
- Surround yourself with positive and more successful people than you.
- Expect that people will be jealous of your success.
- When attacked, smile and say, “I’m sorry I’ve been such a disappointment to you.”
- Don’t threaten back, because that’s what the haters want.
- Sometimes you need to respond, not to get back at the other person but to send a message to all those watching you don’t take a crap.
Some time ago, Donald Trump, who has many haters and laughs at them, tweeted: “If you don’t publicize your successes, your competitors will belittle them.”
In contrast to the haters, JT Foxx encourages everyone to try to make it to the top. He believes in people, whether he knows them or not. “Life is too short for hate. It’s not easy becoming successful, but when you reach that goal (whatever that is for you), I invite you to join me at the top. Not only is there more room at the top, but you eat far better”, jokes the world-famous coach.
