The Path of Mastery
This is the thing that trips us up the most in life – the way in which we feel most like a failure, and therefore we put the most effort into avoiding.
It’s simply what we believe we CANNOT do, or CANNOT be.
It’s also the thing we secretly want to the most. No amount of failure stops us from wanting it.
Only from believing we can achieve it.
Avoiding this place of awkwardness, clumsiness, and the shame that results is the most tempting thing in the world.
It's also the most deadly to our growth as human people.
