Obstacle 7: Attachment

“Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be attained only by someone who is detached.” ~Simon Weil

Attachment asphyxiates aspirations. Some people hold on to the status quo so long and so hard that it chokes the life out of them and their dreams.

In the workplace, some become attached to their office mates or a title. Others stay in a damaging relationship even though they know it is best to move on. A majority of folks stagnate, failing to live their own life filled with freedom of choice, because they are afraid to detach and move forward into their own greatness.

Attachments weave a secure safety net. But, in order to grown you have to learn to let go. Chopra, in The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, says “detachment does not mean that you give up your intent and desires; you give up your attachment to the result.”

Un-stick your self. Detach. Suspend your illusions and figure out what is your best, actual reality. Live your truth.

“It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.” ~e.e. cummings
