How does receiving some kind of recognition – a promotion, an award, a political office or celebrity status – affect your experience of life and your sense of self?
For a long time I craved the recognition.
Now I appreciate it when honestly given, and it really doesn’t matter that much.
Now I am much more interested in outcomes than credits.
And I have never been a fan of criticism, and criticism is a part of anyone doing anything different – something I just need to get used to.
