A person's attitude and orientation are a more powerful cause than any particular intention they may hold. As you know. If your friend says, "I had a good intention, but I was in a terrible mood," you rightly EXPECT that his bad mood must have caused bad results, no matter how good his intention was. However, nobody doubts that good results will come to a person who has a cheerful and constructive attitude, and who is oriented towards paying attention to other people and helping them in an essentially positive spirit. Such a beautiful orientation will MORE than make up for any little mistakes or imperfections in whatever that person does. The creative power of orientation explains why "It's not WHAT you do, but HOW you do it, that matters."
