by not being lazy!!!!!
by always putting the most effort into e/t u do. Never slack off or get lazy.... im not saying that its bad to relax its just that life is too short and we have to accomplish the most that we can. meaning that just by making the right choices in small every day type of decisions is a big accomplishment bec. its easy to just be lazy and not accomplish what u r capable of accomplishing in this precious time that hashem is giving us

our hidden potential i think is being unlocked by G-d when there is a real need for this to be done . i think thet gets done in serious cases . If someone wants it done for any other -not so serious- a case it better be for a good cause. Then maybe G-d will help . Just a thought.
