"It is an oxymoron to strive for one's own self-glory, while following Christ as his disciple. We are created. He is Creator. We are redeemed. He is the Redeemer. Often the the "Elephant" in the room is that we, as artists, pastors, etc. can be motivated by a shadow mission, or "masked mission". This elephant must die.
Alert312 recognizes our own draw to this, as much as we notice it everyday in fellow brothers and sisters. Let's follow the lead of the forerunner of Christ - John the Baptist - as he so candidly said to his followers, "I am filled with joy at his success. He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less." (John 3)
Kill the Elephant - It's not about us.
