One generates desire, endeavors, is persistent, upholds and exerts one’s intent for the sake of the abandonment of unwholesome, unskillful qualities that have arisen.

One generates desire, endeavors, is persistent, upholds and exerts one’s intent for the sake of the arising of skillful qualities that have not yet arisen.

One generates desire, endeavors, is persistent, upholds and exerts one’s intent for the maintenance, non-confusion, increase, plenitude, development, and culmination of skillful qualities that have arisen.

This is called Right Effort.

―Buddha Shakyamuni, Marga Vibhanga Sutra
