Today we are going to be talking about the deadly mirage of mastery. Many entrepreneurs and leaders have this mirage-like idea where they chase some sort of milestone that marks finally making it. A sense of mastery where we can feel completely aware and in control of everything that has made us successful to this point but this is a very deadly mirage to chase. 

We live in a time where the pace of information and change is faster than we have ever experienced before and in an environment like this one of the two most valuable skills you can have is your capacity to adapt to the world around you and I will tell you a little bit more about the second layer. The “I’ve finally made it” mentality shuts both of these down. 

In This Episode:

  • True masters stay masters by surrounding themselves with great coaches and the world is filled with stories that support this.

  • Often the wisest leaders get to the top of their field by recognizing their limitations and surrounding themselves with those who have different talents and perspectives

  • If you ignore the opportunities that the beginner’s mindset has to offer then you are leaving impact on the table. There is no bigger opportunity and better investment than getting support and coaching on your communication and storytelling.

  • And so much more!!!
