Do you ever do things for your work, family, or friends and then feel anxious about getting your fair share of acknowledgment? I hate to admit this, but I do. Now don’t get me wrong, I have no interest taking your recognition, I just want mine.
I have come to realize that my “craving credit” stems from my lack of faith and appreciation of my skills, talents, and capabilities. As I have come to see the vast resources I have access to from my friends, family, and colleagues, as well as within myself, I seek less to claim my recognition and more to help others see their own greatness. In the end, the appreciation I actively sought flows back to me naturally, abundantly, and nearly effortlessly.
So today, instead of jockeying for position, focus on doing your best without expecting anything in return – and notice what happens.
Have a great weekend,
