How to Become a Master in 2019
The New Year is a time when many of us reassess where we are and redefine what we want from life. All of us want to fulfill our potential, grow into our strengths, and perform at our peak. In other words, we want to be masters! However, many of us have no idea to achieve this. In this age of mass distraction, we’re constantly sold quick fixes to our problems. As a result, we’ve started to believe that we can make almost instant improvements to our lives, relationships, and careers instead of putting in the time, practice, and energy that’s required. If you truly want to master something, you have to take a very different approach.
Author George Leonard defined mastery as ‘the mysterious process during which that which is at first difficult becomes progressively easier and more pleasurable through practice.’ The key word here is practice! To become a master, you must be willing to set a course, stay on that path no matter the challenges, and make a life-long commitment to honing your skills. It’s not an easy process, and there is no magic formula. But if there’s any surefire way to success and fulfillment, the process of mastery is it.
Let me show you how you can get started on your own pathway to mastery:
- Seek an instructor. A good teacher is the key to achieving mastery of anything. He or she will provide guidance on your journey and point you in the right direction. Without instruction, it takes much longer to learn.
- Practice constantly. As legendary athlete Babe Didrikson Zaharias said, ‘The formula for success is simple: Practice and concentration, then more practice and more concentration.’ Get out in the field and apply what you learn. It may not be glamorous and sometimes there will be no visible signs of progress. But if you commit to a spirit of always learning and practicing, you will continually clear the obstacles on your pathway to mastery. Remember – practice is not something you do; it’s something you are.
- Commit to self-improvement. Becoming a master is a journey, and you must have the courage to experience failure along the way. What’s the difference between the master and the beginner? The master has failed more times than the beginner has ever tried! Don’t be afraid to push the limits to achieve a higher performance. Yes, it can be a scary prospect to be vulnerable, but your shortcomings can become your assets so use them to fuel your passion for learning and drive you on.
