Let’s face it. We all need it. I know that more can get done if it doesn’t matter who gets the credit, but that guy that said that was getting all the credit.
I was talking with a good friend of mine that works somewhere where he has all the great ideas, but doesn’t get the recognition for it. Too bad. It doesn’t necessarily help with the morale. So what can you do about it?
1. Find someone to give you recognition
2. Find somewhere else to share your ideas
3. Stop worrying about it and get back to work – which is something that isn’t really sustainable so I’d go with the first and maybe the second.
I recognize you for needing recognition. Honestly, let me know if you need recognition, and I’ll definitely give you some.

I don’t know if I would say I need recognition from just anyone and everyone, now I am not saying I don’t like it because I very much do, but I don’t NEED it from everyone. What I do need is recognition from my wife, and I would say more than anything most men do, and that is where a lot of problems start in a marriage is the wife doesn’t want to give praise to her husband especially when others already do, and if she is not willing to do that unfortunately many men will find it somewhere else. And even if that woman may not be near as attractive as his wife a man really does like his ego stroked. So as hard as it is women I tell you stroke your man’s ego and that will mean more to him than almost anything.
I like it. I feel the same way. I don’t need it from everybody, but I do need it.
I like that you say that a wife needs to give it more, but it’s hard when the husband does something to prevent the wife from giving recognition – but marriages take work.
Thanks for the post sir.
