Everyday for the next year I will be posting a new Inspirational Rule to consider living by. I hope you enjoy.
Rule #18 11/1/15
Always give more than is required of you.
I think this rule is pretty self explanatory. While praise and gratitude from others goes a long way to inspire us and keep us moving forward on the journey. It is not the responsibility of others to acknowledge or determine our worth and dedication. This responsibility falls on us, and us alone.
Too often we allow the praise, or lack of praise, to determine how much effort we will put into any given task or circumstance. This implies that our effort is conditional. If we are to truly do the work of our souls growth, we will not only give more than is expected but also give of ourselves in everything we do without expectations and with an unconditional spirit. So the next time you feel like your efforts are being taken for granted, remember that you are doing what you do for you, not for them. Even when the world has failed you, always give more than is expected. ~Will "Story" Rivera
