Most people don't like each other

5 things successful people do when they don't like someone

Unless you have a genetic abnormality, it is perfectly normal to meet people you don't like.

Regardless of whether it's your mother-in-law or a colleague - with some people you just can't connect.

According to Deep Patel, author of "A Paperboy’s Fable: The 11 Principles of Success," it helps remind yourself that no one is perfect. Not even yourself.

On an entrepreneur blog, Patel shares tips on how successful people should deal with those they don't get along with. Because sometimes you can't just avoid them - Patel even believes that if you don't open up to them, you limit yourself.

So instead of burying your head in the sand, choose the method that successful people would choose. Here are some tips from Patel and other sources like Psychology Today.
