The Power of Goodness
Instead of focusing on your limits and shortcomings, see if you can make it your practice always to turn to the good.
When you are tired or frustrated, say to yourself, “I dedicate my action to the joy of others. I know that I have limits, but still I dedicate all my actions to their welfare, knowing that this has merit.”
From time to time, encourage yourself to do more than you think possible.
Remind yourself that you can work toward the good, can accumulate merit and power to act for the sake of all beings.
Your influence can ripple out in all directions, and you can make a difference in reality.
