Pursuit of Mastery

“Baseball players spend their time in the batting cages, having people pitch to them for hour upon hour. Professional musicians spend more time practicing than they do performing. I worked with a close-up card magician once, and he would sit there doing the same trick again and again and again.

Interestingly, whenever any of these people make a mistake or fall short of their goal, they never complain that they were doing it wrong or under performing, or failing – they simply laugh or shrug and do it again until they get it right.” – Richard Bandler

Another great quote by Dr. Bandler about how we should approach mastery. We need to love the mastery and know that it is an essential piece to becoming great.
