Right Motivation

Path of Action: Day 6 A

Motivation stimulates goodness. When you begin the day with good intentions, that good attitude can influence everything that happens, almost guaranteeing a positive outcome.

So let the aims that inspire you guide your work.

When difficulties and hardships appear, renew your resolve to accomplish something of value.

You can work for humanity or for the growth of your own knowledge, so that you can be more helpful to others; you can aim to deepen the love you feel for yourself and others, to cultivate compassion, or to develop more stable meditation.

Give up your selfish reasons for acting, and goodness will be the result of whatever you do.
