The beginning of one's decline, G‑d save us, is the lack of avoda in davening. Everything becomes dry and cold. Even a mitzva performed by habit*becomes burdensome. Everything is rushed. One loses the sense of pleasure in Torah-study. The atmosphere itself becomes crass. Needless to say, one is totally incapable of influencing others.
