Mastery Is The Goal19/01/13
I believe that part of what we’re here on Earth to do is become masters of many skills. To achieve a big goal, you are going to have to become a bigger person. You are going to have to develop new skills, new attitudes, and new capabilities. You can lose material things, but you can never lose your mastery- what you learn and who you become in the process of achieving your goals.
