Doing your best

“Never stop doing your best just because no one gives you credit.”  This is a great thing to teach our children.  They should do their best because they want to be proud of the job that they did, not because they are expecting a pat on the back from others.  We all know that many times we end up doing things without praise or gratitude, but that doesn’t mean that we start doing a mediocre or sloppy job.  At the end of the day, we need to respect the person we see in the mirror and know that we did the best that we could, regardless of what anyone else says, or doesn’t say.
