The Art of Detachment – let it all be.

Lately, I have been working on a few illustration projects for licensing. I love what I do, but after 40+ years it doesn’t get easier when a project doesn’t go through. Now when two projects don’t go through, you can get down in the dumps!

Sometimes I focus too much on “The Goal”, and the object of my focus becomes my waking thoughts, daily deliberations and midnight meditations. This intense concentration – and holding on too tightly- can “PUSH AWAY” my  desired outcome.

My very wise agent recommended to detach from the projects I was working on, and suggested that I should draw something that I love, something not “attached” to a project. I thought it was a great idea so I did, I decided to take the day off to just enjoy what I love to do. Illustrate and let it all be.


It seemed like as soon as I detached, law of attraction was put in effect and brought me a new contract, with a company that I didn’t even know we were pitching for! I was stunned, perplexed and very very happy.

The moral of the story is that we have to let go sometimes of the very thing we want in order for something better to show up in our lives. We can achieve more by letting go.

“Focus on your intent and be certain about the outcome of your desire, but be detached to any ideas about things that may stop you from achieving it.”

I can’t wait to share the details of this new project with you.

What I will share with you now is a thought that I find fitting for what just happened and could help you the next time you feel like you have hit a wall.

“Open your mind and your heart for some new possibilities. In one second, everything can change in your life. Keep the door open that miracles can still unfold on your path. The key to your breakthrough is to keep moving…no matter what. Don’t look to the right or to the left. Keep looking forward. Things are going to happen that will catch you on the blindside. Deal with it and keep moving!! You may or may not be able to count on friends and associates. Don’t stop to complain. Keep moving! You must meet life with life…giving your energy. Use your imagination, skills and talents. Be resourceful by using everything in you to break through to the next level. Your dream is calling you. Answer the call…and keep on moving!!

You have GREATNESS within you!”

-Les Brown

Keep looking for ways to win. Take “a day off” thinking about your goal but Don’t give up!

You are closer than you think to your next breakthrough.
