Can only speak from own personal experience. Performing one's True Will is the bottom line. A mind that is concerned with success is just as bound and tied up as a mind that is concerned with failure....bottom line, perform one's True Will and be not concerned with the end result. Being indifferent and unattached to results helps one perform actions. To many times the mind becomes warped with thoughts like "will this really work" or "what will others think"....The issue is not the end result----the issue is performing one's True Will. Unless one acts on True Will, you might as well be sitting in the Abyss.
Love is the law, love under will
