“A monument or statue has never been erected for a critic, troll or hater.”
You asked for my response with regards to a recent post that was
Here's my question to you: After looking at the post,
what do you believe was the writer's intent?
Does he care? Does he care about you?
About anyone? What's the real intent?
Now I support free speech. It's the foundation of what this country
was built on. The fact of the matter is, what you believe you see or
hear may or may not be what it appears to be; think about the
intent of the creator. In today's age anyone can spin or edit
anything, whether it's video, audio or text. They can create or
incite reasonable or unreasonable fear, uncertainty or doubt.
In this particular instance somehow this individual managed to get
STOLEN content and tweak, spin and edit it to serve a dubious
purpose and potentially harm or affect the reputation of people he
may or may not agree with. I'm not a lawyer so I don't know what
can and cannot be done. But what I choose to do is look at things
from a bigger point of view.
These days, celebrities and politicians are constantly hounded
and harassed by critics, trolls, and haters.
You can decide whether or not you believe they deserve it or not.
Here's what I can tell you…
My advice: When I heard about the Tiger Woods scandal, I
thought right away it's terrible what's happened with Tiger and
I don't know the details, but I know that the news media spins and
criticizes/sensationalizes to serve their needs and goals to keep
peoples' eyeballs on the television and sell advertising.
They don't care about Tiger or his family or the people who may
be effected by this. My advice was that Tiger should keep playing
So here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to do good work. I'm
going to create great things. I'm going to help people get results.
I'm going to give back. I'm going to provide solutions and I'm going
to send love even to the Critics, Trolls and Haters.
I have a mission and that is to Educate, Entertain, Teach, Train
and Innovate. My vision is to give people all over the world the
opportunity to distribute their message, their content, their passion,
and make a living without restrictions from government, language
or belief systems.
I want to connect and I want others to be able to connect.
So here's the bottom line: good work always wins and eventually
Google will start to pay attention to the reputations and relationships
of the people it decides to push to the top of the screen and that's
exactly what I am going to do. I'm going to give Google great content,
great information and connect myself with the people that I'd like to
help and the people who see the results of my actions. My audience
isn't the haters or trolls. It's the people who choose to see the actions
and results and what I continue to do and eventually the critics, trolls
and haters will always fade and be forgotten.
I'll end the same way I began…
“A monument or statue has never been erected for a critic, troll or
Thanks for your inquiry and my recommendation is do great things,
“judge not lest ye be judged”, and keep playing golf.
I'll see ya on the course.
