[Ep #184] What to do when you become a Victim of the Tall Poppy Syndrome

What to do when you become a victim of the Tall Poppy Syndrome

Ever been at the receiving end of someone’s harsh criticism – not just someone sharing their opinion on a topic you’ve been speaking about – but a comment that is harsh, an attack on you and your character with no reason at all other than this person is envious of the work you’re doing and therefore wants to cut you and what you stand for – down.

Sadly. many people do. Which is why I created a podcast and wrote an article about the Tall Poppy Syndrome several years ago. And, even today – in 2017 the article is still one of the most read articles on my website.

So today, I wanted to share the podcast with you again, as I know many of you are stepping up and sharing your message in a much bigger way this year. And, perhaps you too, may find yourself having to deal with people who are envious of what you are doing and achieving.

How do you deal with it? I share some steps in today’s podcast. I hope you find them helpful…

On today’s episode I speak about:

  • What Tall Poppy Syndrome really is and why it can stop you from building the coaching practice of your dreams
  • 3 things you can do if you find yourself a victim of Tall Poppy Syndrome
  • I’ll be answering Liz B’s question: The biggest hurdle I have to getting paid what I’m worth is: How do I start to build my platform online?
  • Inspirational quote
