Happy people don't go through life collecting recognition. They go through life giving it away.
Look for opportunities today to give encouragement, praise, and recognition to those around you acknowledging that we are all children of God. Your happiness will be increased exponentially as you see the smiles of pride they reflect back.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
