Why is that so hard?
Well, some people were raised that way.
They didn’t get credit for what they did well either.
Others are jealous and it feels weak to tell others how good they are or how well they did without also making it about them.
And some think if they give you kudos (especially in front of others), it belittles them.
If you think of the person in this world you like the most, she or he probably passes out credit to others even at the expense of themselves. It’s one of the reasons you are drawn to them.
We have no shortage of ability to recognize others.
People crave those who recognize their accomplishments and efforts.
Crediting others is a prime form of giving without spending a dime and it makes us feel good about ourselves.
Think of the latent ability you have right now to recognize others without having to make it about you, and you have the equivalent of a masters degree in human relations.
