To reach a level of mastery within an identified area requires more than most people are willing to invest of themselves. The value a masterful person would bring tremendous value for their craft, but most will fall far short of learning to that level.
Not all surgeons will become masters in their area of speciality. Not all carpenters or athletes or teachers will do so either. To become a master requires a plan full and continuous pattern of learning and application of learning until they would consistently provide the best feasible outcome, each and every time.
Mastery may only be attained through a heavily focused and actively pursued effort over time. It takes time to gather the broad range of specialized knowledge required along with the application of that knowledge across every sort of feasible circumstance and condition. This is where people tend to fall short of moving to a level of mastery.
The opportunity is there for each of us to attain. When knowledge and application of knowledge over time is the focused answer, mastery is available to us all if we would only determine to do so. Invest of yourself from within your life’s purpose to excel at higher levels and your level of mastery will follow.
“Mastery is not a function of genius or talent. It is a function of time and intense focus applied to a particular field of knowledge.” — Robert Greene —
