The Funny Thing About Credit
If you look at the biggest moments of success in your life you’ll often find that, behind the scenes, there was someone who made an introduction, vouched for you, or invited you to an event that led to that big opportunity.
If you look at the instances after that success, how often would you say you mentioned those people in your discussions with others?
If you’re shaking your head right now, you’re not alone.
Credit is a very elusive thing. It’s easy to forget the people who helped us succeed because the second we have success, we are surrounded by a new group of people and often we forget that we even had a time when things were not going as well.
This is all the more reason to be conscious of giving people credit for the help that you get. Most people never get thanked, mentioned, or acknowledged so if you are the one to do it, then you stand out.
It only takes a few minutes to do so, why not do it today?
