1. The Apprentice stage
2. Creative / Active stage
Most people achieve the first stage but it comes with a set of its own prerequisites. One must find the purpose of their life in order to ensure catapulting themselves to the level of someone aiming for mastery. Nowhere does the author mention “hard work” because when you do something you want to do or be beyond great at there is no real energy required. The initial phases may perturb you or make you want to give up but you must fight the social dynamic surrounding you. Many may have tried a field and failed at it. We must not allow our social convictions to make us settle down. We must look beyond… Before I sound more jumbled up let me tell you Mastery is not an easy book to read or sit through. It challenged nearly everything but in many ways it has told me the key to unhappiness and resentment. The reason we are unhappy or depressed is because our creative potential remains potential and never sees the flourish it wants to enjoy.
If you start something purely for the purpose of making money, your drive will be limited only for a few years. However, if something holds your interest and you wish to submerge yourself, initial failure or resounding success, should not matter. I noticed the book has many quotes but none of the quotes are simple.Read more ›
