Decide what you want
Before you can master anything you need to decide what you want. Be clear; why do you want it? What will it give you? And what will you be able to do once you have it? Once you’re absolutely clear on this, then ask yourself “who do I need to Be in order to get that?”
Become your future self
Now when you know who you need to Be in order to have what you want, how will you become that? What do you need to do to become your future self? Simple – invest in yourself. When you are ready to give up on things that are not an investment in yourself and instead make an effort to invest in yourself, that’s when change happens. When you are open to proactively change something, you automatically allow change to come to you.
Mastering yourself is an investment for life
Do you live life as an outcome of what is happening around you or do you choose to live as the cause of that outcome? By mastering yourself you become the cause of your life. The greatest investment you can make is in yourself as to master anything you will need to give all you have to achieve it. The more you have of yourself, the more you have to give of yourself to what you want to master. So therefore, the greater your mastery will be. When you invest in something, you get more of it right…so can it be, that when you start proactively investing in yourself, you get more of yourself… Now, I’m not saying that starting with mastering yourself, will have you master everything else you choose to put your mind to with greater results, as isn’t it so, that the driving force of everything around you, is you.
“Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.” – Albert Einstein
