Self confidence is necessary for survival.But once you have all the capabilities for survival,the ability to let go is the most sought after skill. Why ?
- You got your dream college,dream job,dream girl.But now let go that feeling of achievement (not the person or the job). When you reset your achievement meter,you are more energetic to perform newer task.You can never live on your past laurels.
- You failed in college,couldn’t get your dream job or your dream girl.What would you do now? Same ,let go.Now you are unmoved by either the success or failure and your future efforts are independent or past success or failure.
This is what I call ‘detachment to desires’ of all kind.
