Worth of a person - cannot be measured by their successes

Those who feel they need to work for the good of humanity do not ask themselves whether they are going to succeed or fail, because this question introduces an element of hesitation and doubt in them that slows their momentum. They must work, that is all. Nations’ histories teach us that we cannot judge people’s worth based solely on their successes or failures. Those who succeeded are not necessarily the greatest, and those who failed are no less worthy. Their example has fed the enthusiasm of a whole host of other people; they were like seeds, like leaven; one day, their goal is achieved and even better than they were hoping. Each creature comes to the earth with a specific mission, and often those who are given the most grandiose missions are destined to fail, at least on the face of it. But they have prepared the ground – which is the hardest thing – for others, who with the benefit of their efforts will be successful. This is why those who succeed must think with gratitude of all the men and women who came before them and who worked to make these successes possible. These men and women made sacrifices, and sometimes they were even victims, but it is possible they will return in another life to reap the fruit of their labours.
