Title: Do what you love and love what you do.
Excerpt: Never stop doing your best just because someone doesn't give you credit.
----- I came across the above excerpt on Abubakar Sadiq's wall in a post he was tagged. The message is so brief, simple, concise, self explanatory and real. The post is meant to address everyone most especially those who tend to give up in what they are good at just because someone or some persons do not bother to give them credit or applause. I once felt that way and almost bashed away my skill but thank God for James Ochayi's interception else you for no even see this small piece of write-up to read sef because by now, my skill for don go into extinction.
----- What is it that you're doing and good at? I understand how killing it is when nobody seems to look at your direction to at least tell you "well done work" but again, you must learn that humans are somewhat somehow; even if what you're doing is helpful to them, their pride would never allow them to admit and give you credit for a job well done. Again you must do what you love and love what you do for it is in that, that you understand that what is worth doing is what doing well. People most at times, wouldn't want to give you credits maybe because of the following reasons:

  • Maybe because they feel they should be the ones doing what you're doing.
  • Maybe they see their credit allocation as a threat to their personality.
  • Maybe they want and desire to be like you only to find out they can but will only be the number 2 of you.
  • Maybe they just want to demoralize and probably sway you from your creative visions.
  • Maybe they are killjoys and naysayers who don't just want to see anything logical or rational; in fact they are pessimists.

---- You must understand the simple fact that not all humans are human beings and so don't be that expectant of their credits. After all, whether or not they throw you credits, it neither makes nor mar you. Learn to work independent of people's theories/theorems; this way, you will attain the height you crave for.
#NOTE: whatsoever good you're doing out there at your very best, remember, someone somewhere somehow some way is been touched, helped and given happiness which you may never know. And you may become the memories of such people; as such, may I enjoin you to please do not give up on your skill and never stop doing your best just because someone or some set of people doesn't give you credit.
I am but just a country boy.
