Detachment is crucial in all matters of life. No matter how hard you try to attain your goals, it is necessary to realize that there will always be external factors you cannot control.

By identifying your talent you will start on your path to being happy and successful at the same time. Don’t be seduced by the notion of being perfect for it is does not exist. Instead aspire to be the best human being possible.
