By Robert Greene
Author Robert Greene passionately believes that every person has the ability to become a Master within their lifetime. However, this journey to mastery is accomplished by so few people that Greene set out to discover what it is that makes someone a Master. Throughout this discovery, the journey of famous masters is analyzed, and the lessons are translated by Greene into actions that everyone should be taking. The journey is hard, and long, but the result is an immortal legacy of an individuals’ triumph over commonplace living.
Here’s what you’ll learn about in this summary:
- What mastery means, and how to find your Life’s Task.
- Creating your apprenticeship, and why it’s critical to mastery.
- The importance of social intelligence and dimensional thinking.
“you must not see this process of moving through levels of intelligence as merely linear, heading toward some kind of ultimate destination known as mastery. Your whole life is a kind of apprenticeship to which you apply your learning skills. Everything that happens to you is a form of instruction if you pay attention. The creativity that you gain in learning a skill so deeply must be constantly refreshed, as you keep forcing your mind back to a state of openness.”
“If you allow yourself to learn who you really are by paying attention to that voice and force within you, then you can become what you were fated to become – an individual, a Master.”
“You cannot ultimately understand why you are drawn to certain activities or forms of knowledge. This cannot really be verbalized or explained. It is simply a fact of nature. In following this voice you realize your own potential, and satisfy your deepest longings to create and express your uniqueness. It exists for a purpose and it is your Life’s Task to bring it to fruition.”
In Mastery, Robert Greene offers each person a chance to become a Master, using renaissance thinking adapted with a 21st century advantage.
