Mastery is not a function of genius or talent. It is a function of the time and intense focus applied to a particular field of knowledge.
Mastery is not a quick route to fame and fortune. It is a path of lifelong learning, full of both obstacles and opportunities.
Mastery is not a destination. It is a continuous journey in pursuit of excellence.
Mastery is not about professional success and money. View these rewards as a by-product, not its final form.
Mastery is accessible to all of us. It is about reaching out and choosing your own path.
