Success vs. Mastery

Success vs. Mastery

“We thrive not when we have done it all, but when we still have more to do.” –Sarah Lewis

 Have you ever considered the importance of mastering your goals, rather than being satisfied with successfully achieving a goal just once?

Make not the success of one goal your ultimate prize, but rather master that goal. When we look at successful athletes, we see that they have achieved success through the perceived mastery of their sport. They know which actions are necessary to reach success and they are constantly redefining what success means by comparison to their previous triumphs.

Mastery is observing how and why success is achieved, so that it may be repeated.                                                                                                                                              

Mastery is constantly renewing your definition of success.

Mastery is realizing that there is always more to do.

Striving for mastery before success will change how you see yourself and it will push you to higher limits. Seek success, but make mastery your ultimate goal. With mastery as your goal, you will be continuously making yourself better. Aim for mastery, and success will become a regular result.
