So many people in life never get the credit they deserve. They aren’t famous, but they are supporters, caregivers, everyone who works behind the scenes. Think of all the writers, poets, musicians and creative people who never hit it big. But everyone tries. Many people aren’t happy in the spotlight. Think of all the people who signed their work “Anonymous” for whatever reason.
We are taught from an early age to promote ourselves, to be proud of our accomplishments, and to toot our own horns, especially in the workplace. Think of all the books written about getting ahead, improving yourself, etc.
I think getting credit for something starts first with a belief in yourself, and a willingness to recognize greatness in others, and assisting them in getting there. So start recognizing the “unsung heroes” in your life.
