You just submitted that article or book and some of the reviews are not very nice. Or even just getting 4 out of 5 stars can get you going- why did they give me 4 and not 5??? You can even feel a certain rage for the person. This guy wants to put me down to make himself look intelligent,” you think.

Yes, lots of people will do that. There are those out there who will try to fault what you have created because it makes them feel better about themselves. They get to distinguish themselves by pointing out that you are WRONG!

1. It helps to know these people give you the same grade they give themselves. A person can criticize others about the same amount (actually a bit less) than they criticize themselves. It’s basic Law of Attraction. They are simply showing where they are vibrationally (ie. emotionally).

Bashar, a UFO channeled by Darryl Anka, has brilliantly explained that creation takes more power than destruction. Bashar’s explanation went something like this: Imagine building a house of cards? Is it easier to make it or destroy it? Obviously destroy it. Why? Because creation takes more Power!

2. You are the one who is creating and they are the one destroying. So who has more Power? YOU!!!!

Really your opinion of yourself is what matters here. Take an honest look inside and feel your honest opinion of your project. How did you treat yourself in school when you didn’t get a good grade? You may be a perfectionist who expects an A on nearly every test. ;) Reviews are harder to account for because people come to your articles/books/art expecting different things.

3. Practice complimenting yourself daily. Eventually someone will disagree with you, or give you a bad rating, and you won’t give a damn. Why? Because you created out of joy and you know you were meant to and that it’s good. Not every book is right for everyone.

One question and concern is “But won’t others read their review and think that too?” The answer is: Only if they were already likely to think that. People who loved your work will think your critic is wrong and might even defend you in their review.

Lastly, I leave you with this well-known quote by genius:

“Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocre minds. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thoughts in clear form." –Albert Einstein
