Reading your words some one liners of the one that initiated you popped up:

Do whatever you can, and leave the RESULTS to me.
That means "stopping" to force the outcome and relaxing into what happens and the confidence with the idea that whatever could be done was done ... resting in peace.

Nobody is allowed to go that far astray that he cannot be brought back to the path.
That can be read in many ways but it also tells, unless he was a liar, or whatever, that the coming to a path, the walking on it and the end are not in ones hand. That stress the fact as in the first one liner that one can in life only do what one can, one is able to, in any given situation.

In society we are more or less trained to realize and be responsible for the result, the outcome of what we do, to the complete exclusion of the forces inside ourselves and outside in the world, that are co-operating.

In sports and in studying, shifting the focus from the results on to the effort and take responsibility only for that, does make better sports men and women and better students. More relaxed and with a better knowledge of what they are capable too and what not.

How many children do not have the impression or given that impression that the love of the adults, parents and teachers alike depends on their RESULTS.?!

We honor only those that win, the number one, in any sport event ... but what is its meaning if not surrounded by other teams and sorters that are equally good?!

The glory of winning is in the comparison with equal gifted.

Brian, I agree with you and with the first comment.

Too often we are rehashing the past or anticipating the future. Meanwhile the present is not attended to properly. Do the best that you can right here right now.

To create is to love. Love extends outward simply because it cannot be contained. Being limitless it does not stop. It creates forever, but not in time.

The ego, on the other hand, always demands reciprocal rights, because it is competitive rather than loving. It is always willing to strike a bargain, but it cannot understand that to be like another means that no bargains are possible. To gain you must give, not bargain.
