Be Detached from the Outcome



“I’m a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.”  Thomas Jefferson

One of the definitions in the Oxford Dictionary states that ‘luck is a series of happy chances.’  Now that we have a ton of work that has been done by the quantum physicists, we understand that we can create our own luck.  A lot of people used to talk of my husband as lucky – even simple things like finding a car park right where he wanted it.  Having watched how hard he worked I agreed with the author of this quote, that in fact he created most of his luck.  However, he also used the Law of Attraction.  We didn’t consciously know about that then, but he did set an intention (not necessarily on paper as they would suggest),  had the belief in himself to go after that intention, worked hard at anything that would take him in the right direction and voilà he was’ lucky’ enough for something good to happen.

“But I work really hard,” I hear you say.  Do you believe that your hard work is going to achieve what you want?  Do you believe that you have what it takes to reach your goal?  If so, are you ready to accept that what you ‘intend’ is not necessarily going to arrive in your time frame or exactly as you had envisaged?  This can be the missing part of the puzzle, and a harder piece to accept.  Our part is to put out the intention, work towards achieving that goal and being open to opportunities that come along.  We then have to let go of the attachment of the result looking a certain way.  This is the piece I’m having to work on, on a daily basis.  It’s called ‘being detached from the outcome.’  Wow! 

Enjoy working hard and being detached from the outcome!   Robyn
