Where's the Fruit?!: The Mission of the Spies

Moses had instructed the twelve spies to bring back specimens of the produce of the land of Israel to show to the Children of Israel. Strangely, Joshua and Calev – the only ones to remain faithful to Moses and the mission – did not comply and returned empty-handed. In explaining the justification for their omission, this class will offer a timely lesson on the nature of intent versus action. (Likutei Sichos vol. 38)

I would understand from this that to be inspiring to others put on your own teffilin with true fervor where everyone can see and this will have a greater affect than putting on teffilin on someone else who does not want it or feel any attachment to it and is just letting you put in on them to please you,.
