I don’t do the things I do to be praised for it, but it’s nice to see people recognize the good work you are doing.

There is nothing more disappointing to seeing things handled to people and they truly have no backstory of earning things. How do you truly measure success if you have never failed? You can be handed success, it’s earned not given.
