The concept of mastery is about achieving tremendous skill in a given area. This is something that is not purely about natural talent or luck, but a deliberate and patient journey to deep levels of understanding and intuition.

“Mastery— the feeling that we have a greater command of reality, other people, and ourselves.

Although it might be something we experience for only a short while, for others— Masters of their field— it becomes their way of life, their way of seeing the world.”
