I'm Just Trying To Be Better Person Than Who I Was Yesterday: I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.
Just because you aren't given the credit and haven't been recognised for your work doesn't mean you have to give up or stop. You don't always need credit, other people do not always have to know what you are capable of doing as long as you do.
