To achieve, you must care enough to make the effort but not so much that you’re afraid to fail. The most valuable results are reached by focusing intensely on what you’re doing without attaching your sense of self worth to what you get from it.
Of course you would like to get the results you intended. But it’s not the end of the world if you don’t.
In fact, it is a powerful step in the right direction. No matter what results you get, you are still capable, you are more experienced than ever, and you are eminently worthy.
Imagine what you could do if you could do without worry. In fact, you can.
Think of how effective you could be if you didn’t have to obsess over how effective you were being. Those who accomplish much, do so by being unconcerned that they might accomplish little.
You are uniquely beautiful and worthy no matter what results you get. Keep that in your mind and in your attitude, and you’ll surely get truly great results.
