Release attachment to outcome
Really, because the entire culture conditions us to. From a young age, we start getting told that if we do all the right things, we’ll be okay. That’s the birthplace of attachment to outcome, teaching people that goals are meant to be fulfilled and only when they are fulfilled, will there be happiness. As you start getting unattached from the, well, attachment to outcome, something new has room to emerge: defining your happiness internally, rather than through external goal fulfillment.
