Detach the Mind from the Body | The Key to Success

Success. The dictionary definition defines it as...

"the accomplishment of an aim or purpose."

"a person or thing that achieves desired aims or attains prosperity."

"the attainment of popularity or profit."

Success is something that everyone (or almost everyone) desires to their very core. It is rare that someone would choose failure if it was an option. The body is wired for success, growth, and improvement. The mind on the other hand, can be a little tricky to totally get control of.

Human thoughts can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. For most, the mind can be a total hold back each and everyday. Holding an individual back from the way they want to act, the actions they actually want to take, and the way they truly want to carry themselves. The culprit to it all is rejection, or the fear of it for that matter. Rejection and failure go hand in hand. It's a natural response. When you sense a situation that may not pan out how you wish, people tend to listen to those thoughts and hold back from getting what they want.


The key is to practice the ability to be completely present in the moment. The ability to detach your mind, and let your body perform/act/be what you truly see yourself as. When those excuses and thoughts enter your mind, you must observe them and you must treat them like the voice and antics of a little child, without any judgement.

When a person observes their thoughts, they no longer become identified with them, and because of this your self-esteem is no longer able to grip onto these thoughts and use them anymore.

The ability to free yourself from judgement, social pressure, and negative thoughts of how others see you, it becomes easy to live the life you have always wanted. Think of a child. There is no mental game they play on themselves. They do what they want, when they want. Completely present and in the moment at all times, doing what they actually desire to do. As age opens you up to judgement, I think it becomes even more important to realize this and live through action and not thought.


Now by no means is this easy. Change takes two things. Massive action, and insane amounts of consistency. Consistency shapes everything. It is the formation that can take you from who you wish you were to who you actually become. Without consistency, repetition, and constant upkeep, you will not feel congruent with the actions you took.
