    at all

    How will the meaning of the following sentence change with and without the last two words: "at all"?
    "The greatest trick and most subtle secret to doing anything really, really well is loving that you get to do it at all."
    This is from an inspirational email I receive from a motivational writer from time to time. And this is the complete text of the email. I am trying to understand it better.
    Thanks.

    Re: at all

    Same meaning, "at all" is more appreciative and expresses stronger emotion.
