“To give yourself … requires a change of heart… You are going to have to go out and make some things happen. You are going to have to effect some change in your own life and circumstances… You are going to have to give up the perceived benefits and compromises that hold you back and keep you right where you are… Here you are not merely wanting, expecting, demanding and complaining, you are putting yourself to the task of finding and following a deeper and more profound direction in life. You are serving those things you know you must serve. Without the mere intention of enriching yourself or giving yourself prestige or dominance over others, you are serving from a pure motivation. And this gives you strength, and this gives you determination, and this gives you perseverance of a kind that personal ambition alone could never provide.” — Real Change
