030 Influential Detachment
Influential Detachment is a very special topic for Bob because he considers some of his biggest and most devastating failures in life to have been very connected with the amount of emotional “attachment” he felt to that which he desired. Once he became aware of the destructiveness of attachment, he then began to work on this issue and saw amazing results.
Does he still struggle with it? He’s the first one to say, “Absolutely!” The difference is with awareness he’s able to take the proper steps and move into Positive (and Influential) Detachment, which is what he’ll share with you today. It’s a very thought-provoking episode!
In this episode you’ll explore with Bob:
- The definition of “Attachment” and why it’s so destructive.
- The definition of “Detachment” and why it’s so positive and helpful to your success.
