Daily Lift #494

Focus on the Benefit of Doing Mitzvahs

Whether you subjectively find something easy or difficult, depends to a great degree on the perceived benefit. If there is no gain, then even a minor action might seem difficult. But when you gain an immense fortune by taking some action, even a difficult one is now considered easy.

When you focus on the eternal benefits gained from performing mitzvahs, you will be far less bothered by any difficulties or hardships involved.

(see Dubner Magid - Sefer Hamidos, p.126)
