    Life rewards hard work, and those who are willing to work hard will rise to the top, regardless of gatekeepers or anything else.

    You're describing a meritocracy, a pervasive, damaging and tightly-held myth in our industry that hides prejudice and discrimination.

    This is true for any industry, but is especially true for one like design, where no gatekeeper approval is required for recognition.

    This is not true for any industry. If you search for "myth of meritocracy", you'll see this harmful concept is being discussed in comedy and music right now.

      A "cracy" is a system created by humans. I'm talking about the fact that if you put everything you have into something, you get a result.

      Newton's law in action. Any self-made man or woman will echo this. It transcends human systems.
