10 beliefs for a better life: #8 Mastering over mastery!



What’s your purpose? Many people drift through life, with no sense of purpose, direction or true joy. They ignore the fact that they aren’t happy and never address the mindset and choices that led to that unhappiness. Most people have limiting beliefs and so their life is limited. They believe life is hard, and so it is. They believe life is a challenge, and challenges seem to pile one atop another. They believe either consciously or unconsciously that their best days are behind them. They believe fitting in and being who they are expected to be will get them a better or easier life than being their true self and following their true passion. Their happiness is dependent on what others thinks and what happens. They are not in control of life; life is in control of them.


Over the next 10 days, we will be sharing one of 10 empowering beliefs about life and this is Day #8! These are beliefs that will open the door for life to work with you and for you. Once these beliefs become part of who you are, your entire life will change. Guaranteed.


#8 Mastering over Mastery!


So often, we put off a dream until something else is accomplished. We hold off on going for the job we want until we get that degree or certification. We don’t pursue a relationship until we’ve lost 10 more pounds. ‘Until’ becomes the brick wall separating us from who we want to become.


Removing ‘until’ from your mindset is all about the difference between mastering and mastery. Mastery implies an end or destination while mastering is about the journey. What I know to be true is that no matter what you’re looking at in your life, the opportunity to continue to learn and grow always exists.


Mastery also invites comparison or ‘better than’ mentality. Choose to be your best, regardless of what others may think. What you believe is real, what others believe is only their perception.


What is your journey of mastering? Where are you growing and becoming a better, more fulfilled you? Find that, and you will find your purpose.
