Whatever you are doing, find a way to believe in it.
When you believe in something, it becomes who you are.

Do not let procrastination stop you from pursuing what you want.
Do not let fear stop you from going after your dreams. 
Do not forget that what you are looking for is also looking for you.
Always find a way to believe in what you want.

To get it, to meet it, to achieve it, 
you must be patient with yourself.
You must believe in yourself, 
in your dreams, 
in your journey.
You must find a way to believe in what you want,
If you really want to have it.

When what you want is success, 
then you must do whatever you can, 
whatever is within your power, to get it. 

With hard work, with determination, with focus, 
you will get it.
You will get it. 
And you can get it.
But you must work for it.

Get yourself ready to receive it.
Believe in it. 
With hard work, it will come to you. 

Detachment: How To Practice It Every Day

Detachment means separation. It means detaching yourself from what you already know, from what is hurting you, from selfish people, from the things that are not getting you closer to your dreams, from being the talker, from controlling other people, from lying to yourself, from manipulating others.

Detachment brings peace. It brings love. It brings happiness. It brings freedom.

Detachment says, “Let it go. Do not let anything own you. Do not crave over anything. Be happy with what you have. Take care of your mind. Enjoy your life. Make peace with yourself.”

“Only by detaching can we truly gain control of the mind.”- Jay Shetty

If you want to make peace with your soul, you must first detach yourself from the things that are hurting your soul.

Detach yourself from: anger, resentment, envy, jealousy, laziness, hate, and procrastination.

Detachment is the key to a lasting peace. In his book Think Like A Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Every Day, Jay Shetty writes, “Detaching means escaping the hold of the senses, of earthly desires, of the material world. It means detaching from your selfish interest, from being right, from being seen in a certain way, from what you want right now.”

He adds: “Only by detaching can we truly gain control of the mind.” If you want to live a peaceful life, do not attach yourself to anything. Because “attachment brings pain.” Seek peace, not pain.
