Apply this to Mitzvah Performance!
Do you sometimes feel like when you help someone out you are doing them a favor? The truth is that both of you are gaining. They get your help, and you are going to be greatly rewarded by G-d, and get a great feeling that you helped another person. Plus you never when that person can help you. We are are all in this together!
