Most… if not all of peoples problems comes from CHOOSING to be distracted from what is the ONLY certain road to success, which is mastering a skill to the degree that the world cannot ignore you.
They try something for a while…
Then they get bored when success doesn’t come quickly. Then they find something else and repeat the pattern.
You must start to gain pleasure from the process of mastery itself, instead of constantly yearning for the outcome. Not many people have the patience to achieve mastery so when you finally get there you will have little competition if any at all. Repetition can be boring but thats the only way to achieve mastery.
