It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. (Harry Truman, 33rd president of the United States)

Similar quotes are attributed to other writers and speakers, and it’s a good reminder. In a “me first” age, we hear athletes, entertainers, and politicians (and some less public people, too) speaking very proudly of their accomplishments. But it usually takes a team to achieve success, and we would do well to give more credit to our colleagues for our joint successes.

Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips (Proverbs 27:2).
