Humility: Recognition and Responsibility

You either humble yourself, or someone else will do that for you.

It’s not right to complain that you don’t feel valued when you don’t want to do the things of value. With recognition comes responsibility; the reason why you have one is because of the other, and vice-versa.  You either step up to take both of these, or you step down if you refuse to handle the work that comes from the honor bestowed.  In the end, it’s better to step aside and let someone else do what you cannot – or will not – want to do.  “The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it” (Chinese proverb).
