We each have an innate desire to be acknowledged and recognized when we succeed. Unfortunately this isn't in our hands and therefore out of our control. When something is out of our control, we must find a way we can meet our needs without depending on others.
In situations like these celebrate your successes. Don't depend on your boss or friend to notice and praise you. Praise yourself. When you take responsibility, you control the outcome. When you control the outcome you can do whatever you need to in order to find the reinforcement you crave. Meeting your needs is a must for finding happiness and success.
Jack Canfield, in his book The Success Principles, mentions several methods you can use to raise your self-esteem, eliminate your negative self-talk, and acknowledge the positive things you do.
