Talent is not enough
Natural ability will only take you so far
When it comes down to it, mastery is the only thing that will distinguish you from the many other people in your field wanting the same thing
It doesn’t even take that much to distinguish yourself from the pack
Think about it
Mediocrity is so rampant and so common place that stepping up just a little bit already places you way ahead of the pack
What does that look like in this day and age?
It looks like doing what you said you really want to do.
Most people never follow through on any dream they have. So, you doing even a fraction of what you feel like you’re put on this earth to do is much better than the rest of us
But don’t stop there
Once you know what it is you want to do and are already starting to make moves towards it, you need to fully commit to it
Learn who the key players are – as the saying goes, before you can break the rules, you must first fully know them
So keep working on improving your chosen craft so that one day you will look up and discover that the student has become the master
Study the craft
