6 Steps to Get Really Good at Anything – Mastery by Robert Greene

100 Comments



I REMEMBER AT COLLEGE,
I HAD TO TAKE A BUNCH OF CLASSES THAT I WASN’T INTERESTED IN.
AND EACH CLASS ONLY LASTED ABOUT 53 MINUTES.
AND I WOULD LOOK AT THE CLOCK EVERY TWO MINUTES,
I COULDN’T FOCUS ON ANYTHING, AND I COULDN’T WAIT FOR THE CLASS
TO BE OVER. WELL, MAYBE I SHOULD’VE
GOTTEN A PRESCRIPTION FOR SOME ADDERALL. OR MAYBE NOT,
BECAUSE I CAN NOW WORK ON PROJECTS THAT I’M INTERESTED IN
FOR 20 HOURS STRAIGHT. AND THIS IS WHY EVERYONE’S
BASICALLY MEDIOCRE AT WHAT THEY DO. AS SOON AS YOU’RE A LITTLE KID,
YOUR PARENTS START PRESSURING YOU TO BECOME SOMETHING THAT DOESN’T
INTEREST YOU. I MEAN, YOU WANT TO BE A COMPOSER?
ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND? AND NOT ONLY ARE PEOPLE AROUND YOU
CONSTANTLY PRESSURING YOU, BUT THEN YOU START TO PRESSURE YOURSELF…
“WELL, YOU KNOW, MAYBE I CAN MAKE MORE MONEY BEING A DOCTOR.
I KNOW I CAN’T STOP PLAYING THE PIANO DAY AND NIGHT,
BUT MAYBE BEING A DOCTOR IS A SAFER CHOICE.”
AND THEN YOU END UP IN A CLASS LEARNING ABOUT THE KREBS CYCLE
AND LOOKING AT THE CLOCK EVERY TWO MINUTES. AND THAT’S OUR PROBLEM.
WE HAVE TOO MANY MOZARTS WHO WERE FORCED TO BECOME A DOCTOR.
AND THEN YOU GO VISIT THAT MOZART DOCTOR WHEN YOU’RE SICK,
AND YOU CAN JUST TELL THAT HE DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT.
HE HANDS YOU THE PRESCRIPTION AND THEN YOU LEAVE. NOW, I’VE HAD TO DEAL WITH QUITE A FEW DOCTORS,
AND IT ALWAYS AMAZES ME WHEN I WALK IN THERE KNOWING MORE ABOUT MY CONDITION THAN HE DOES.
AND I DON’T EVEN BLAME HIM! HE DIDN’T WANT TO BE A DOCTOR,
HE WANTED TO BE A COMPOSER. NOW HE GOES HOME,
AND INSTEAD OF BEING EXCITED ABOUT FINDING A SOLUTION TO MY CONDITION,
HE WATCHES TV. HE’S NOT MISSING OUT ON SLEEP
BECAUSE HE’S RESEARCHING TOO MUCH, HE CAN’T EVEN WAIT TO LEAVE WORK. DON’T GIVE INTO THAT PRESSURE!
YEAH, YOU MIGHT END UP WITH A GOOD JOB, A NICE CAR, A NICE HOUSE,
I’LL GIVE YOU ALL THAT. BUT I WILL GUARANTEE YOU ONE THING.
YOU WILL NEVER HAVE A CHANCE AT MASTERY. BECAUSE YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO
DEDICATE THE REQUIRED THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF HOURS TO IT.
BECAUSE YOU WON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WAKE UP AND WORK ON SOMETHING UNTIL YOU
FALL ASLEEP. THEN DREAM ABOUT IT,
AND WAKE UP AND START DOING IT AGAIN. YOU WON’T KNOW WHAT THAT’S LIKE! AND HERE’S THE THING…
I’M NOT EVEN COMING FROM SOME ROMANTIC PLACE OF YOU SHOULD PROBABLY DO WHAT YOU ENJOY IN
LIFE, WHICH IS PROBABLY THE BEST ADVICE I COULD
GIVE. BUT FORGER THAT,
I’M COMING FROM A PURELY MASTERY PERSPECTIVE. YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO PUT IN THOUSANDS AND
THOUSANDS OF HOURS INTO YOUR CRAFT TO BECOME A MASTER.
THERE’S NO OTHER OPTION! AND YOU’RE SIMPLY, PHYSICALLY NOT GOING TO
BE ABLE TO DO THAT IF YOU DON’T FOLLOW YOUR INCLINATION
AND DO WHAT YOU’RE DEEPLY INTERESTED IN. THE WHOLE IDEA HERE IS THAT
YOU HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME. YOU CAN’T BE SPENDING DAYS AND WEEKS
FIGURING THINGS OUT ON YOUR OWN WHEN YOU CAN BE TAUGHT IN A COUPLE OF HOURS. SO HERE ARE THE THREE STEPS
THAT YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW WITH YOUR APPRENTICESHIP. FIRST: DEEP OBSERVATION.
YOU WALK IN THERE. YOU’RE NOT MAKING THE MISTAKE
OF ASSERTING YOURSELF LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. YOU DON’T TRY TO SHOW EVERYONE
HOW TALENTED YOU ARE. YOU DON’T TRY TO INVENT THINGS. THIS IS A TIME TO OBSERVE EVERYTHING.
HOW DOES THE SYSTEM WORK? WHAT ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE SUCCESSFUL IN
MY NICHE DOING? NOW, NOT A 100% OF WHAT YOU OBSERVE AND LEARN
IS GOING TO BE RIGHT OR OPTIMAL IN ANY APPRENTICESHIP OR FROM ANY MENTOR.
BUT THAT DOESN’T MATTER. THIS IS NOT YOUR TIME TO TELL PEOPLE
HOW YOU’VE RESEARCHED THINGS ON YOUR OWN AND HAVE FOUND MORE EFFECTIVE WAYS OF DOING
THINGS. SECOND: SKILLS ACQUISITION
THIS IS WHERE YOU START PUTTING IN YOUR 10,000 HOURS
THAT EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT. IF YOU’RE A WRITER,
YOU’RE WRITING ALL DAY, YOU’RE RACKING UP THOSE HOURS. AND FINALLY,
ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED THAT AND YOU’RE READY, YOU TAKE EVERYTHING YOU’VE LEARNED,
YOU TAKE THAT FOUNDATION AND SKILL, AND PUT YOUR OWN UNIQUENESS ON IT
AND CREATE SOMETHING GREAT. THIS WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO START IMPLEMENTING
THAT THING THAT YOU RESEARCHED THAT MIGHT MAKE YOU MORE EFFICIENT. SO THAT’S THE MODEL,
AND I SEE PEOPLE IGNORING IT ALL THE TIME, DON’T IGNORE IT.
THE FOUNDATION IS VERY SIMILAR FOR EVERYTHING. YOU DON’T WANT TO BE THE PERSON LEARNING
HOW TO DO THE FOUNDATION ALL ON HIS OWN. PEOPLE ASK ME ALL THE TIME,
“HOW DO I START A BUSINESS?” WELL, LET’S SAY IT’S AN ONLINE BUSINESS,
FOLLOW THE THREE STEPS. TAKE THE SUCCESSFUL ONES YOU WANT TO BE LIKE.
WHAT ARE THEY DOING? “OH LOOK AT THAT,
THEIR WEBSITE LOOKS LIKE THIS.” “THEY GIVE A LOT OF VALUE FOR FREE,
I WONDER WHY A BUNCH OF CAPITALIST PIGS WOULD DO THAT.”
“WELL, BUT LOOK AT THAT, THEY ALSO HAVE A PRODUCT.
LET ME TAKE A LOOK AT HOW THEY TRY TO SELL IT TO YOU.”
YOU DO YOUR DEEP OBSERVATION. NOW YOU’VE LEARNED HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS,
IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO PUT IN YOUR HOURS TO CREATE YOUR WEBSITE,
CREATE YOUR PRODUCT, START DOING YOUR MARKETING. NOW AGAIN,
LET’S SAY YOU’RE DOING EVERYTHING ON A PLATFORM LIKE WORDPRESS,
YOU CAN EITHER WATCH A GUY EXPLAIN THE FOUNDATION OF WORDPRESS TO YOU
IN A COUPLE OF HOURS, OR YOU CAN LEARN ON YOUR OWN FOR WEEKS.
BY THE WAY, THIS IS THE BEAUTIFUL THING ABOUT THE TIME
THAT WE LIVE IN AS WELL, YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO KNOW PEOPLE FOR THEM
TO BE YOUR MENTOR. NOW FINALLY,
YOU’RE NOT JUST CREATING A COPY OF SOMEONE ELSE’S BUSINESS,
THAT WAS JUST THE FOUNDATION. NOW YOU PUT YOUR OWN UNIQUENESS ON THE WEBSITE,
YOU CREATE A PRODUCT THAT’S BETTER, YOU TAKE THE GENERAL IDEAS OF MARKETING BUT
DO IT BETTER. AND THAT IS HOW YOU END UP WITH A SUCCESSFUL
BUSINESS. I LOVE THE FACT THAT THIS IS INCLUDED AS ONE
OF THE KEYS. EVERY MASTERY BOOK TALKS ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE
OF THINGS LIKE PRACTICE, WHICH IS CRUCIAL BUT SO IS SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YOU’LL BE MESSING UP ALL THE OTHER KEYS WITHOUT
IT. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THEM…
FOLLOWING YOUR INCLINATION. YOU HAVE CONTROLLING PARENTS
AND INSTEAD OF APPEASING THEM, AND MAKING THEM FEEL IMPORTANT,
AND TELLING THEM HOW YOU CAN’T WAIT TO BE WHATEVER THEY’RE FORCING YOU TO BE,
YOU START CONFLICT. THEY KICK YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE,
YOU HAVEN’T DEVELOPED YOUR SKILLS YET, SO NOW YOU’RE WORKING AT MCDONALDS,
INSTEAD OF BEING FED BY MOMMY AT HOME WHILE YOU DEVELOP YOUR SKILLS. SAME THING WITH APPRENTICESHIP.
TRYING TO WALK IN THERE AND SHOW PEOPLE HOW HARD WORKING AND TALENTED
YOU ARE. YOU THINK IT’S GREAT.
THEY’RE REALLY GOING TO APPRECIATE YOU NOW. EXCEPT FOR, THAT’S NOT WHAT THEY’RE THINKING
AT ALL. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT YOU SHOULD
NEVER APPEAR TOO PERFECT, AND EVENTUALLY THEY’VE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU
AND GET RID OF YOU. SAME THING WITH MENTORS.
FIRST OF ALL, GOOD LUCK GETTING A GOOD MENTOR WITHOUT SOCIAL
INTELLIGENCE, BUT LET’S ASSUME THAT YOU SOMEHOW DID.
YOU START TO SHARE WITH HIM ALL THE GREAT IDEAS YOU HAVE.
YOU WANT HIM TO BE REALLY IMPRESSED BY YOU, BUT YOU DON’T KNOW THAT YOU SHOULD NEVER OUTSHINE
YOUR MASTER. SO YOU GET HIM INSECURE AND HE GETS RID OF
YOU. I SEE THIS ALL THE TIME.
OTHERWISE INTELLIGENT PEOPLE WHO ARE ALSO WILLING
TO PUT IN ALL THE HARD WORK GETTING THROWN OFF THE PATH TO MASTERY,
AND ALL BECAUSE THEY DON’T CULTIVATE ANY SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE. IF YOU HAD READ
CARNEGIE’S HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE
AND GREENE’S THE 48 LAWS OF POWER, YOU WOULDN’T HAVE MADE ANY OF THESE MISTAKES. BY THE WAY,
THESE ARE TWO BOOKS THAT EVERYONE MUST READ, EVEN THOUGH I USUALLY DON’T LIKE TO SAY
THAT ANYONE HAS TO READ ANYTHING. SO LET’S TALK ABOUT THREE TYPES OF MINDS:
THE ORIGINAL MIND, THE CONVENTIONAL MIND,
AND THE DIMENSIONAL MIND. HERE’S THE ORIGINAL MIND.
LET’S SAY YOU HAVE A LITTLE KID WHO WANTS TO BE A TEACHER
WHEN HE GROWS UP. AND YOU ASK HIM,
“HEY KID, WHAT SCHOOL DO YOU WANT TO TEACH AT?”
YOU MIGHT GET A CRAZY ANSWER LIKE, “I’M GOING TO TEACH THE ENTIRE WORLD.”
AND YOU’RE LIKE, “OH, THAT’S REALLY SWEET.”
THAT’S THE ORIGINAL MIND. IT’S CRAZY.
IT’S CREATIVE. THEN YOU HAVE THE CONVENTIONAL MIND.
AND THIS WOULD BE ONE OF MY OLD PHD PROFESSORS AT COLLEGE.
IF YOU ASKED ONE OF THEM, “HEY, WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO TEACH?”
YOU MIGHT GET AN ANSWER LIKE, “WELL, OF COURSE, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE HARVARD!”
THAT’S THE BEST THING HIS MIND CAN COME UP WITH.
A CLASS OF 15 STUDENTS AT HARVARD. NOW, THIS PROFESSOR MIGHT HAVE PUT IN THOUSANDS
OF HOURS INTO ECONOMICS, MIGHT KNOW ALL THE FACTS ABOUT EVERYTHING,
BUT HIS MIND HAS LOST ALL OF ITS ELASTICITY. HE CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING CRAZY ANYMORE.
HE CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING CREATIVE ANYMORE. FINALLY, YOU HAVE THE DIMENSIONAL MIND.
AND THE DIMENSIONAL MIND COMBINES THE CRAZINESS AND THE CREATIVITY OF THE ORIGINAL
MIND, WITH THE MASTERY OF THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS
OF HOURS OF EXPERTISE. AND WHEN YOU COMBINE THESE TWO,
THAT’S WHEN YOU END UP WITH TRUE MASTERY. THE CHILD HAS THE ORIGINAL MIND WHICH IS GREAT,
BUT HE HASN’T CULTIVATED THE SKILL TO DO ANYTHING GREAT WITH IT.
THE OLD PROFESSOR HAS CULTIVATED THE SKILL, BUT HAS SUPPRESSED HIS ORIGINAL MIND COMPLETELY
IN THE PROCESS. SO HE WON’T BE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING GREAT EITHER. NOW LET’S GO BACK TO TEACHING THE ENTIRE WORLD.
SOUNDS PRETTY CRAZY RIGHT? ACTUALLY, IT’S NOT THAT CRAZY. IT’S CALLED
YOUTUBE. IT’S CALLED THE INTERNET.
IF THE OLD PROFESSOR HAD MAINTAINED THE ORIGINAL MIND,
HE WOULDN’T SAY SOMETHING STUPID LIKE, “YOUTUBE? ISN’T THAT THE PLACE FOR CAT VIDEOS?”
“UHH, NO THANKS, KID. I HAVE A PHD. I HAVE TO GET UP AT 6 TOMORROW
TO GO TO MY MEDIOCRE COLLEGE AND ACTUALLY TEACH.”
ALRIGHT PROFESSOR, GOOD LUCK TEACHING IN YOUR LITTLE CLASSROOM
UNTIL YOU DIE. HERE’S ANOTHER EXAMPLE…
WHAT IF I GO UP TO HIM AND SAY, “HEY, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE SO DRY WHEN YOU
TEACH.” “I HAVE FOUND A LOT OF SUCCESS
TELLING STORIES SO PEOPLE CAN RESONATE WITH IT
AND DRAWING STUPID LITTLE CARTOONS SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY FOLLOW ALONG.”
DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN HIS MIND AT THAT POINT?
“STORIES? DRAWING? I HAVE A PHD! I CAN’T ENGAGE IN SUCH FRIVOLOUS MATTERS!”
AND I’M LIKE, “UH, WELL, BUT,
BEING LIGHTHEARTED AND LEARNING SOMETHING NEW
DON’T NECESSARILY HAVE TO BE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE, RIGHT?”
AND HE’S LIKE, “I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN KID,
IF IT’S NOT DRY, IT’S FRIVOLOUS.” OH AND HE HAS A PHD. YOU GET THE POINT… YOU HAVE TO MAINTAIN YOUR ORIGINAL MIND.
COMBINE THAT WITH THE THOUSANDS OF HOURS OF PRACTICING YOUR SKILL,
AND THEN YOU HAVE A CHANCE AT DOING GREAT, AMAZING THINGS. THAT COMBINATION IS THE POWER OF THE DIMENSIONAL
MIND. AGAIN, WE HAVE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MINDS.
THE INTUITIVE MIND, AND THE RATIONAL MIND. BOTH ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.
BUT WE TEND TO VALUE THE RATIONAL MIND AND IGNORE THE INTUITIVE MIND. LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.
LET’S SAY YOU’VE SPENT THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF HOURS
INVESTING IN COMPANIES AND PRODUCTS. NOW SOMEONE PRESENTS TO YOU THEIR COMPANY
OR PRODUCT, AND YOU CAN JUST SENSE THAT THIS IS GOING
TO BE HUGE. NOW YOU MIGHT HAVE OTHER FRIEND INVESTORS
TELL YOU “YOU’RE CRAZY!
YOU’RE PAYING TOO MUCH BECAUSE OF THIS METHOD OF VALUATION,
AND THIS EQUATION AND THAT EQUATION.” BUT IF YOU’VE DONE THIS FOR A VERY LONG TIME,
YOU MIGHT BE SEEING SOMETHING THAT OTHER PEOPLE CAN’T SEE.
IT’S ALMOST HARD TO EXPLAIN, BUT AFTER ALL THOSE HOURS,
EVERYTHING STARTS TO COME TOGETHER. YOU START TO SEE THE WHOLE PICTURE. NOW, I’VE BEEN PLAYING THE PIANO FOR OVER
A DECADE. WHEN I FIRST STARTED,
I HAD TO BE VERY RATIONAL ABOUT EVERYTHING. IT WAS LIKE,
I’M GOING TO PLAY C NOW. NOW I’M GOING TO PLAY D. BUT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS,
SOMETIMES I LIKE TO SIT DOWN AND JUST PLAY AROUND AND COMPOSE,
AND MY FINGERS JUST KIND OF RUN AROUND ON THEIR OWN.
IT’S WEIRD. THERE’S ALMOST NO RATIONALITY INVOLVED,
BUT SOMEHOW MY FINGERS KNOW WHERE TO GO. AND KEEP IN MIND,
THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN JUST A HOBBY FOR ME. TO THINK ABOUT WHAT GOES ON IN A PERSON’S
HEAD WHO’S PLAYED FOR YEARS AND YEARS FOCUSING
ON BECOMING A MASTER IS KIND OF SCARY FOR ME TO EVEN THINK ABOUT. NOW, THERE’S NOTHING SUPERNATURAL HERE.
IN FACT, YOU CAN USE THE RATIONAL MIND TO EXPLAIN IN RETROSPECT WHY FACEBOOK MIGHT HAVE
BEEN A GREAT INVESTMENT, OR WHY SOME CHORD GOES WELL WITH SOME KEY.
BUT THE INTUITIVE MIND HAS A HUGE ADVANTAGE OVER THE RATIONAL MIND
IN CIRCUMSTANCES LIKE THIS. MASTERS ACCOMPLISH GREAT THINGS
BECAUSE THEY CAN COMBINE THE INTUITIVE WITH THE RATIONAL. ALRIGHT EVERYONE,
THAT WAS MASTERY BY ROBERT GREENE. ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS.
DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS. AND YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ASK ME ALL THE TIME,
WHAT BOOKS DO YOU RECOMMEND? WELL IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THIS ONE,
DEFINITELY READ THIS ALONG WITH THE 48 LAWS OF POWER. AND I JUST WANNA SAY A HUGE THANK YOU TO ROBERT
GREENE. FIGHTMEDIOCRITY’S ACTUALLY GETTING ABOUT 10
OF HIS MASTERY BOOKS, WHICH IS REALLY REALLY COOL AND I’M SO EXCITED,
AND I CAN’T WAIT TO GIVE THEM AWAY TO YOU GUYS.
SO IF YOU WANT ONE OF THOSE FREE COPIES, I’LL BE POSTING THE DETAILS BELOW THE VIDEO
HERE ON YOUTUBE. ANYWAY, I HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOYED THIS,
THANKS FOR WATCHING, AND HAVE AN AWESOME DAY! 🙂

  1. Dean Wise says:

    I think you shouldn't lose your core value – teaching not entertaining. It'd be much better if you didn't drift away from the book. You skipped many good parts.

  2. Yehualashet Abate says:

    thank you bro thank you a lot you have the power to change the life of dead people

  3. newbieisback says:

    So, there are two books both named "Mastery". One by George Leonard, the other by ROBERT GREENE . You recommended George Leonard in the 9 books video, but I mistakenly bought this one when I went to Barns & Noble today…

  4. Sarah Alharbi says:

    gonna read it!

  5. mahmood el-maghawary says:

    What software you use to do this?

  6. L.S. Trey Halberdier says:

    GREAT STUFF- CONNECT WITH ME AT [email protected] FANATICAL ENTREPRENEURSHIPWWW.THEHREALESTATE.COM

  7. Oscar Felipe Narváez Joaquí says:

    Great video! You are doing Good. You're teaching a lot of People.

  8. Rohit HT says:

    Which software use to create such animation

  9. Seyfun 14 says:

    1. Deep observation. How does the system work? What the foundation looks like? What the successful people are doing and not doing? Don't claim you have better ways, don't try to fix things, and don't criticize others. Just learn the basic ropes, keep your mouth shut, and observe the little things. Talking about your big ideas, trying to control or change the system when you have no experience, no proof and no accomplishments will only make you a fool and an outcast.
    2. 10,000 hours. This is the time to gain skills and rack up hours and fully use every single day. Don't waste your precious time.
    3. Transfigure the ideas to create something unique with great value. That's the moment to implement your originality and the ideas you researched beforehand. Don't copy something else- You'll be replaced soon. And don't forget to avoid learning things from scratch on your own which will take weeks and agonizing difficulty, instead watch a video or read a book- letting someone else transfer the information to you will save you so much pain and time. It's the best time effective method for learning.
    4. Social intelligence. Read books about that because it's the single most important factor of getting successful. For example, never outshine your mentor and never share your ideas with him.
    5. Develop the dimensional mind: creativity+skill= mastery.
    6. Fuse the intuitive and the rational.

  10. Improvement Club says:

    Great video! I read Robert Greene's book and it's awesome to see you do animation on it. Keep up the killer videos.

  11. Ryan Nixon says:

  14. Dhmy Amry says:

    The core of the book is so missing here. Too many useless stories, too many negative examples.

  15. AmfnJ327 says:

    Best video summary ever. The deep observation was huge to hear for me.

  16. Jp Jp says:

    4. Social intelligence… I screw this up all the time. I suck at social intelligence. Any suggestions at how to develop this beyond only reading dale carnagee?

  17. Abraham Valadez says:

  20. Shreyash Gupta says:

    Thankyou for this video !

  21. ayumi says:

    Wow, you must be the most bitter, biased, and "conventional" minded person teaching about unconventionality. Lol

  22. elkammash says:

    Great summary

  23. BOB bob says:

    It's great to see someone actually helping people and succeeding from doing so . Your animations make it enjoyable and easier to comprehend information .
    Thanks

  24. jjkhawaiian says:

    Great presentation! I'm currently taking a Mastery class as my first course for an MFA: Creative Writing program.
    This was a very simple, creative and engaging way to understanding the concepts and applications mentioned in the book, Mastery.

  25. John Gallagher says:

    Salty AF …lol ..enjoyed the video though ..it gets a thumbs up. 👍

  26. Zero Resistance says:

    however… like i got to survive somehow after my parents are dead and without some kind of background education, i would end up homeless eventually, so yeah how do you cut the niece? If i had the money i'd be spending hours and hours everyday reading nutrition knowledge and what makes our body grow the fastest in terms of muscle and i would put practice into that. I know alrdy alot about nutrition however i can always learn more. Right now i'm behind with the studies in school, so yeah…

  27. Jamie says:

    what if we dont knw what we r deeply interested in??😂

  29. Anna M says:

    Teaching is most likely, the inclination of professors. They followed their inclination, acquired mastery of it, and chose sharing their mastery to their students, as their lifetime vocation. Social intelligence equips us with the ability to recognize, respect and understand our differences in our inclinations, yardstick of success, to name a few. I'm not a teacher nor a professor, but I surely don't resonate with your statement, wishing them good luck teaching in their little classroom, until they die. Not cool, Bro!

  30. Kashmala Wazir says:

    Robert greene.you are suzeraine.impecable, a class, phenomenal.changed my way of life by your books collection.want to meet you sir.love support respect from Pakistan

  31. Tech Dr says:

    Should i read 48 laws of power before mastery ?

  32. Andy Mg says:

    I like your work but I think you are very pretentious thinking you could be more knowledgable than doctors or suggesting most aren’t happy. Im a pharma student, and im taught how to deal with people who think they know better than you despite having studying sciences for 8 year because they googled it… I guess if you deal with that kind of behavior, you become less eager to engage with your patients…

  33. Cisco Kid says:

    Fuck this shit I have my own way of motivation. Literally I was forced to watch this shit.

  34. ceaser500 says:

    I find your video to be smartasd and critical and sneering other people's choices in life. You are better than this. Better to speak from the heart than to try to be a clown

  35. Jordan Santos says:

    If the master is insecure, why would we want to be that person's apprentice.

  36. Israel ocampo says:

    I want to change my course into business. But my parents wont let me.

  37. Atlanta718 says:

    #Mastery
    1. Observe
    2. Practice
    3. Add your unique style
    4. Find a mentor
    5. Be emotionally intelligent
    6. Combine #creativity with skill MASTERY for unique combinations.

  38. Greg Strattner Jr. says:

    Incredible video! Mastery is one of my personal favorites! Bravo!!

  39. Ernesto Miguel Credito says:

    Poor is apprentice who does not surpass his master

  40. Brian_ Ochieng says:

    It 3 year but I want that book so that I can share it with some people to fight mediocrity………..i have bought some for them but I still need more copies

  41. Brian_ Ochieng says:

    Books like poor dad rich dad by kiyosaki

  42. Brian_ Ochieng says:

  44. Rasika says:

    Oh my God ! This vedio is the way to different from what i have know and had listen from the people about how to do things. It's so,so optimistic and it just don't leave you by feeling optimistic but it ushers you towards how to get that for which you where being optimistic about. Thank you so much.

  45. gourango mishra says:

    Thanks for this demonstration… It inspired me alot…

    Not that you inspired me can you please share how ( software) you created this video… It will be a great help ….

  46. Sharad Pawar says:

    Sorry but this one sucks original book was too cool

  47. HARI Krishnan says:

    Great work

  48. B. Frank says:

    10 hrs a day
    Everyday for 10 yrs.
    30,000-40,000 hrs.
    THATS MASTERY.

  49. Charles Henley says:

    You should do a video on ‘The art of thinking clearly’ by Rolf Dobelli. It’s fantastic and it mixes very well with ‘Mastery’. They compliment each other. This channel is fantastic and is probably more important than certain subjects taught in schools.. Ken Robinson has a few books on that matter which I’m sure you will have heard of given his TED talk was the most viewed (last time I checked), another one to consider! My favourite quote from his book ‘The Element – How finding your passion changes everything’ is the ‘alchemy of synergy’ – when you find your passion and creatively pair it with your greatest skill – clarified route of progress and improvement. They are all in written with the same intention which is yours, to fight mediocrity. I personally like something lighter like ‘improving harmony’. I don’t know lol. Anyway much respect x

  50. Audel Salazar says:

    Summary of the Keys to Mastery:
    1. Follow your Inclination: Do what you enjoy in life and be willing to put in thousands of hours of practice.
    2 & 3. Apprenticeship & Mentors: Deep Observation (How does the system work? What are the successful people doing?), Skills Acquisition (Thousands of hours of practice), and Transfigure the Ideas (Create something great and unique your way).
    4. Social Intelligence: Required to find a mentor; reading recommendations include "How to Win Friends and Influence" by Dale Carnegie and "The 48 Laws of Power" by Robert Greene.
    5. Awaken the Dimensional Mind: Creativity of the Original Mind + Skills and Expertise of the Conventional Mind = Mastery of the Dimensional Mind.
    6. Fuse the Intuitive with the Rational: Albert Einstein – "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."

  51. THARUN KUMAR S says:

    5:12 , great

  52. Zett76 says:

    Great video!
    I still recommend (like you 🙂) reading the book twice or more – it‘s so much than this review.
    The audiobook is super, too. 🙂

  53. Gelila Eyasu says:

    THANK YOU!

  54. Tuan Lam says:

    Awesome video. Thank you master 👍

  55. Duc Nguyen says:

  61. Eduard Stancu says:

    WTF you make with 1 million of Mozart?!? Fuck composers!

  62. Arif Azim says:

    This book is just a derivation of Napolean Hill's content.

  63. TIMP says:

    The model makes sense however how does one identify what they love if they have never had the chance to love it?

    More bullshit for people who want to blame everyone else for their decisions and choices.

    8:50 wow someone went on a power trip like a little diva. U ok there buddy? Listen, I know you probably feel like an alpha male and peak intelligence super-human after reading all of those self-improvement books, but you are nothing but a faggot jelaous of other people's PhDs, making shitty summaries on youtube.

  67. Berayah Yahudi says:

    Great video! Is it possible to show images of the books that you make as suggestions to read?

  68. AjAy Mathews says:

  80. Tumi The Architect says:

    I couldn't believe how naive I was about the jealousy and envy. As a 30 year old, I never thought I could attract any jealousy from 50+ year old managers. I was just trying to do my best. But I agree about needing to be smarter about that and keeping quiet to some extent about the inner workings of my mind.

  81. Anthony Roberts says:

    Yes, there's a big difference between working as a doctor and BEING a doctor.
    And I stopped watching because of the annoying background music and ads.
    Why spoil a good message?

  82. JT Tran says:

    This video is from 2015. And I’m just now watching it. Great content. Patience is key, it seems.

  83. Von Keith Davis says:

    I love reading and music.

  84. Jason M says:

    Wow I wish I had the choice to be a composer or a doctor lol

  85. Beth Bartlett says:

    5. (Apply Conscious Thought) don't react to their bait…
