What is Personal Mastery?
I found the best way to describe it, is in the words of Peter Senge…
“People with a high level of personal mastery live in a continual learning mode.
They never ‘arrive’.
Sometimes, language, such as the term ‘personal mastery’ creates a misleading sense of definiteness, of black and white.
But personal mastery is not something you possess. It is a lifelong discipline.
People with a high level of personal mastery are acutely aware of their ignorance, their incompetence, their growth areas and they are deeply self-confident.
Only for those who do not see the ‘journey is the reward!”
“Personal Mastery is the phrase my colleagues and I use for the discipline of personal growth and learning. People with high levels of personal mastery are continually expanding their ability to create the results in life that they truly seek.
From their quest for continual learning comes the spirit of the learning organization.
Personal mastery goes beyond competence and skills, though it is grounded in competence and skills.
It goes beyond spiritual unfolding or opening, although it requires spiritual growth.
It means approaching one’s life from a creative as opposed to a reactive viewpoint.”
