running after honor

it says in mishnayos that when man runs after honor, honor will always be three steps ahead of him. It also adds that when man runs away from honor, the honor will chase him.
A chassid once came to the rebbe with a complaint: "Rebbe, for so long now i have been doing my best to run away from honor, yet honor has never chanced upon me!"

To which the Rebbe smiled and Replied: "Thats because you have to stop looking over your shoulder."
