Summary: Working honorably and without needing recognition, focusing
on the deed, not the rewards, eliminates reward oriented and
competitive motivations, lending a less anxious and more
dignified quality to work and life.
Being a good person is a lifestyle choice, it is not
done for glory because there may not be any.
"To remain unsoured even though one's merits are
unrecognized by others, is that not after all what is
expected from a gentleman?" -Confucius
If a person's motives are selfish or ulterior, it will
become clear. When a person's efforts aren't recognized,
there can be an internal satisfaction, dignity and honor
in knowing that one is successful, helpful, or good.
