    Obviously you have reversed the wires. Unsolder them and solder them correctly or get used to the switch working in reverse. Or, as spacemissing suggests, you might be able to turn the switch around, although I think this is very unlikely.

    So, either unsolder the wires and move them to the correct terminals,     

    or, if possible, simply reverse the mounting position of the switch.
