That’s easier said than done…How can you detach yourself from an outcome? It’s a skill that one attains after going through the process a couple times. In the beginning you want everything to go “right” and spend lots of time planning. When you finally have an event or promotion and isn’t as successful as you thought…..you might think that you failed. Many times why people think that way is because they are attached to the outcome more than the process of what they are trying to achieve. Detach yourself from the outcome and concentrate on the process or journey.
Whenever I set a date for a webinar or a conference call I focus on the knowledge I will share by spending time researching and writing my PowerPoint presentation. My focus is not how many people accept or decline my invitation. It’s on giving value the best way I can…In other words I detach myself from the outcome. Another example is the M.E. University mentoring program. I detached myself from the outcome and focused on the Module presentation. I got myself ready even before the students registered. Going through that process of preparation made me successful as a presenter and had nothing to do with teaching the first class. If you go through the process from beginning to end then you too are successful!
As you break for the weekend I want to leave you with a quote from Bob Moawad….“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.” Learn to detach yourself from the outcome and focus on the process or the journey.
To Your Success,
