Just like that. Reach out and take it.
As easy as it may sound many people, especially the technical professionals I encounter daily, are not like that. Each of them has a great set of qualities, quite diverse and unique, but in general they tend to be modest and assume their successes in work as ‘normal’. A shame really, because if you are good at something why not make it known? If you contributed something that is of real value (to you, your company, a customer), is it that strange to stand still for a little while? To take a moment, to be proud of what has been accomplished? To just say out loud that has been your doing that made this little piece of success?
