You can have whatever you want so long as it does not matter who gets the credit
It’s so human to crave applause and recognition and acclaim. We all want to be appreciated by our peers. But leadership is a lot more than trying to look good in the eyes of others. It’s about standing for A Cause. It’s about being excellent as you do your work. It’s about leaving people better than how you found them. And it’s about not worrying who gets the credit for a job well done.
People who are brilliant at what they do always get found out.
The cliché is true: The cream always rises to the top. The best always come to light. And The Great Ones amongst us can never be held back.
