A person makes himself a drop holy and [Heaven] makes him very holy. He makes himself holy below [on earth] and he becomes holy from Above. He makes himself holy in Olam HaZeh, and he becomes holy in Olam HaBah.” Yoma 39b
Therefore, even by taking just a small step towards holiness here, is considered a large step above. Plus by doing so, you will be granted assistance from Above and become extremely sanctified.
