Mastery requires Committment

The path of mastery is not about valuation or appreciation from the outside. 
It is about overcoming doubts and fears on the inside. When mastery is growing within you, life will happen easily, without any struggle, and victory will become a way of life
. Iyanla Vanzant


I love Iyanla's definition of mastery. It is what I would call an inside job, it is resting in the knowledge that despite the doubt, the fear, the trepidation, the questions, I can rest easily knowing that all will be well even if it turns out different to what I had anticipated.


Mastery is part of the self love process, Without mastery the doubts can take you over

the work, causing you to look outside of yourself for kudos and validation.

That can lead to aiding in poor choices.


Mastery requires commitment and discipline,

Mastery requires faith

Mastery requires self belief
