Be Humble And Hope For Recognition
Proverbs 25:6 (NIV)

6 Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence,
and do not claim a place among his great men;

than for him to humiliate you before his nobles.

Never take a position higher than you deserve and risk embarrassment.
Humble yourself and possibly be recognized for your accomplishments.
