In Psalms 27: 13, we read, ‘this is the confidence that I have: that I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.’ I love this verse because it reminds me of some wisdom I would love to share with you. It is the wisdom of ancient ages, and it has been preached by both spiritual leaders and motivational gurus. It’s known as conscious detachment or a sense of knowing.
Conscious detachment refers to a person’s ability to stop worrying about whether he will achieve his goals or not because he is confident that he will achieve them. It means to stop being anxious about the success of your projects. For instance, if you start a business with the aim of making it a big business, you only concentrate on working on the business, and you stop worrying about whether it will succeed or not because you are confident that it will succeed.
A person with this sense of knowing is like the Psalmist. He has confidence that he will see the goodness of the Lord before he dies. He knows he will be blessed, he knows things will work out for him, and therefore, he never succumbs to worry and anxiety. This level of confidence is beautiful and reliable because it makes you work on your goals without worrying.
Without this sense of knowing, it’s hard to achieve your goals because you’ll always worry and it will be easy for you to give up. However, when you are confident of the result, you’ll work hard, and you’ll be willing to sacrifice a lot. And once you start working hard and sacrificing, success is guaranteed. And this is why we must embrace conscious detachment; we must know with certainty that we’ll succeed in our endeavors.
