The rejections really hurts but in a positive way that is the feed for better projects.

Great article!

Yeah. She’s not the only one.

1. Michael Jordan was kicked out of his basketball team when he was a kid because he wasn’t skilled enough…lived to become America’s greatest

2. Messi was kicked out of his football team when he was a kid for not being tall enough – now he’s the only football player in history to have won Ballon D’Oro 3 times in a row!

3. Steve Jobs – we all know this one…

4. Einstein – again…we all know it…failed to pass his class and his teacher told his parents he would “never amount to much”

So yeah, as they say in my country(and language) a kick in the ass is a big step forward.

Cheers

Creativity stems from finding new paths from one failed path, and realizing something greater – no mistakes, only lessons.

So instead of waiting for others to reject, “rejecting the self” might be more easier way to creativity :P

- reviewer’s point of view :D

But that is what most people found to be so hard. Being your own critique. If everybody could judge his/her work objectively then there would be no need for reviewers at all :)

Maybe just one initial review, a test to measure if the author is able to judge his own creation objectively. If passed the gates to the marketplace would open for good.

Don’t know if this kind of test is possible to make though.
