It is reported that ‘Ali bin Abi Taleb said:
Be more concerned that your actions are accepted than your concern of performing the action itself.
Did you not hear the statement of Allaah: Verily Allaah only accepts the actions of the Mutaqeen (pious)
Malik bin Dinar said: Fear that an action is not accepted is more difficult than performing the action itself.
Some Salaf used to say:
The people of the past would supplicate 6 months to Allaah to allow them to reach the month of Ramadan, and then upon completion of the month, they would again supplicate 6 months (begging) for acceptance of their fast.
