This is very true for most people. That is one of the reasons - many persons start this journey with all good intentions in a true way but when this path leads to name and fame, it is difficult to stick with the true path. It is similar to - ego of not having ego. What one needs is a true friend or companion who can question us about our true intentions.
 

I Have Decided to Stick With Love, by Martin Luther King Jr.

 True meaning of love is described here.  Many other positive attributes are great if come from love but if do not come from love - likely to come from ego or other motives and so are nothing compared to love itself.  Living as a source of love (being internally as love) and then doing all external tasks through this love seems to be a message from this.  Great explanation of love!!
