Detachment versus Disconnection, Living in the Present, and more with Dr Cristy Lopez [PODCAST 66]


What would happen if you were able to emotionally detach from the outcomes of any situation?  What’s the difference between detachment and disconnection?


Think about it. How often are you invested personally in the response someone gives you (personally or professionally)?  Or how often have you been attached to the outcome of a sales presentation or meeting?

Here’s the truth… If you’re too focused on the outcomes you’ll find yourself jump-frogging from one thing to another in a vain effort to gain false self acceptance and recognition.

Today’s episode is a conversation I had with my friend, Dr. Cristy Lopez about the importance of detachment.  Frankly, it’s something I’ve had a hard time with over the years and with a shift in focus, you will get greater confidence, peace, and clarity and what that means is you can stay more in the present moment – enjoying the things that matter!

This can help you in powerful ways if you apply it, so I invite you to listen, take notes, and take action on what you learn.

If you put your focus on personal growth and contribution, things change dramatically.


What if you were able to focus on being your BEST YOU? What would happen if you focused on contribution in everything you do with your family, community, church, and work?

Dr. Cristy Lopez says that when you can make that mindset shift you’ll find yourself living a more centered, present life in the moments of every day and your stress and anxiety levels will diminish. That’s because you’ll be working on the things that you can change rather than investing your emotional energy and focus in things that you can’t change.
