The B&E Podcast #046
“The Value of Detaching Yourself From Your Art”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We’re thinking of renaming “Not So Serious Sunday” again because of this one. We get into how when we attach and identify ourselves with our works, the things we do, and the results they get, ultimately sabotages our ability to create freely and most importantly — our joy.
POINT #1: “RESULTS AND SUCCESS ARE PASSING”
-If you are attaching your ability to be happy to your level of “success”, you can easily be blown around into highs and horrible lows. Eventually being happy becomes about getting your next fix.
POINT #2: “ATTACHMENT LIMITS YOUR POWER TO BE YOU”
-When you base your value and happiness on something external, getting something, or some idea of success, you subconsciously tell yourself that others determine your ability to be happy. When you’re not attached to outcomes or identified with your work you’re free to let everything go no matter what happens — good or bad.
POINT #3: “KNOW THYSELF”
-It’s wisdom that has been told to us for ages. Examining ourselves and our beliefs is not the easiest or most comfortable task to undergo, but it is arguably the most noble and profound of endeavors. You’ll come up against it sooner or later, so begin to engage with it and be conscious about it.
