If something we believe in doesn’t yield any personal rewards right away, it may be difficult to keep going.
The enlightened individual seeks solace not only in the possible personal reward; they also see the potential rewards of their example to others. It is what keeps them going.
The maximization of our potential enables others to do the same.
Sometimes, even our frustrated attempts still serve as tremendous inspiration to others. Sometimes, even our tiny steps of progress provide tremendous motivation to others.
Maximize what you can.. and do this as a service to others.
