Vain conceit, vain glory, self glory, self importance, a cheap desire to boast and wanting to be admired can also affect the way we serve. When we help someone for Jesus' sake - some may turn from us, but if what we did was to serve Jesus, then we can say we can serve the person again. We forget about our success but would serve again. Expect the best; prepare for the worst. Do all because you love Jesus.
