Why this race for getting limelight and appreciation?There are some people who always want to come in limelight and expect appreciation for even smallest of their achievements. For such people sometimes their good work holds no meaning to their own self if they are not able to come to limelight and gather appreciation. Sometimes such people end up doing things, not for their personal satisfaction or learning but just to be in limelight and in good books of others.
While there are other categories of people who are totally opposite. They dislike limelight and do not always expect appreciation for their good work. For them, their inner satisfaction on achieving something is most important and they always do the things for their own betterment, growth and learning rather than to be in limelight and get appreciation. Such people do things as per their own liking and not for others. They believe that if they have done good appreciation and other things will naturally follow.
It is true that humans are emotional beings and not robots. So it is quite natural that they will expect some sort of appreciation and limelight for the good work they do. But working solely with the intention of being in limelight and good books of others is never a right thing to do. This attitude sometimes also leads people to do wrong things just to gather limelight and applause.
