In this episode I take a look at the value and importance of mastery, how it relates to fulfilment and offer my guide to the path of mastery. We also look at the importance of understanding mastery when it comes to choosing who you get help from.
Why Mastery Matters
The Two Sides of Mastery (in this episode)
Mastery & Fulfilment
Mastery gives you
Mastery touches your Soul and aligns you with the Divine.
How To Achieve Mastery
Achieving mastery requires passion, practice, commitment & training (coaching/mentorship) over time.
Robert Greene in his book Mastery suggests you
1. Explore your primal curiosity
Prior to social conditioning and the shaping of your curiosities to fit the school’s curriculum, there will be things that you were naturally curious about. Exploring these will give you clues to you innate passions and curiosities and reveal areas where mastery will be easier to attain.
This also relates to ‘Finding your why’. See Episode 31: How Do I Stay Motivated In Lockdown (3 Ways To Find Your Congruent Why) for more on this.
2. Put learning above all else
Sometimes we need to sacrifice remuneration/status early on, in favour of learning. Apprenticeship schemes are a good example of this. Also investing in coaches, mentors and training is part of this mindset.
Mastery is about the basics
Mastery is more about the basics (and principles) than the fancy techniques. Whatever realm you are in, there will be basics. It’s easy get caught up in the fancy stuff, but a master will always focus on the basics and build from there.
You can’t HALF do it
You need to be all-in. You need to commit to attain mastery. Hence the distinction between hobbyist (practices occasionally) and professional (practices day-in, day-out)
Facilitating transformation, healing and brilliance is my day job and an area of mastery for me - experience the difference:
