Who gets the credit?

“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” 

Harry S. Truman 

Who should get the credit for any accomplishments that we make in life?  I’m convinced that not once in life should I get any credit for anything that I have “accomplished.”  God has blessed me beyond measure and the opportunity to work with, serve for, and help amazing people is an incredible reward.

What happens when we focus our attention on doing the right thing and focusing on making a difference?  Instead of putting the effort towards what we “get” instead we should focus on what needs to be done, regardless of any credit that is due….   Reframing the “credit” due is incredibly freeing.  So much of our society today is all about the individual reward and recognition instead of focusing on doing the right thing.

What would you do differently if the “credit due” didn’t matter?
