A Difficult Skill Worth Mastering

I have several different mentors, and all of them serve a different purpose in my life.

I have mentors for my business and mentors for my relationships. I have mentors for jiu jitsu and mentors for my writing.

All of them are masters at what they do, but funnily enough, they preach the same core value over and over again: consistency.

If you can just be consistent with what you do and demonstrate patience over even the most boring, monotonous details, you can master any discipline.

You can see huge success in any field. With time, you can learn any subject or skill — even the ones that you’ve never been a “natural” at. Most importantly, with consistency and patience, you’ll learn through forced repetition and constant preparation to be much kinder to yourself.

You’ll learn to value both the big “public” wins that are celebrated by many — as well as the quiet, private victories that mean nothing to anybody except you.

Developing the skill to gradually sculpt yourself through trial, error, and persistence over the course of your life is the only path worth pursuing.
