Mastery takes patience

20210302


Mastery takes a decision to start, fall, stand up, fall again, stand up again, and repeat over a period of time. And perhaps most importantly mastery takes patience and having no expectations.


When people start running or any other practice most of them don’t see results after a month. After not seeing results in just a month some might stop. Some will keep running, then later they might adapt their diet. They might fall in love with running. After a few months, one year, five years, or ten years they become a runner. Their body becomes the one of a runner. Yet, they don’t really care anymore how their body looks like, they love running.



Those are the ones who mastered patience, who mastered resistance and turned it into a passion.
