How to be a Master of your Craft

Everyone has something that they excel in; it could be literally anything; however, few however are truly a master of your craft. No matter what it is that you love doing, or your skill set, you have the ability to take it to the next level. You have to find that urge to be the absolute best that you can be, and do it. Don’t sit around and wait, because the opportunity to best the best and to be a game changer will not be around forever. You have a craft, now go and master it. Be a craftsman an artisan to the trade and change something.

There are so many things that you could possibly do in order to start a journey to be the best at anything. In a career you have to make changes and adapt to circumstances that you have no control of. However, there will always be a few things to give you a right idea/direction to look forward to in the journey. Although there are things in which are unique to you, these are a few things to think about when you are beginning your journey to be a master of whatever you desire.

Find it within yourself.

You know what you are capable of, and you have to keep the confidence in yourself that you are that expert; the world just needs to see you come out and realize that for yourself. The people that stand out are those that put the work in and are the master of their craft. It does not take a huge doing, but in the big picture, you can do anything. Like anything you come across, only you truly know what you can do. Your mind is either against you or with you, you have to choose which you let it be.

Deep within you is someone waiting to expose themselves to the world. You are a unique individual which has the ability to do anything you set your mind to. Your craft can be anything, a sport, a job, a trade, anything, you have to sit down and figure out that is what you want to do, and you will do anything to make sure you are the best. You are a craftsman, and you can be the best. You have to see that you want to be the absolute best, and start putting things into action in order to be the best.

Work doesn’t feel like Work.

Have fun with what you do, because if you enjoy your work, you will truly find joy out of life. Now be that person, and be a craftsman, no matter how big or small you can change the world. When you are passionate about something it starts to not feel like work, and when that happens you start becoming the best. If you can sit down at the end of the day, and it feels like you didn’t work but have fun, you are doing the right thing. Work that does not feel like work is a passion.

How many times have you came home and been so drained and tired that you had no drive to do anything but sit and do nothing? So many people have issues of settling for the bare minimum and not pushing to get what they deserve. Be a master of your craft, and destroy any self doubt and lack of self confidence. You have to be the best, and live up to your own expectations. Do what you do because you love what you do not because you have to. In the end if you are doing it because you love it, you will have to do it because you have to in order to stay happy.

Win the Competition.

When you are a true master of your craft, you have to compete to be the best. Being a master isn’t just someone who is good at a certain discipline, that person is the best at that discipline. You have to do everything no matter what it takes, in order to be the best. You cannot settle for anything less than what you are capable of. Competition in every field is going to be tough because there are many people trying, you have to put it into action. Within you is a competitive beast that will do everything to win.

It is not over until you win. That burning desire inside is what separates the good craftsman and the masters. Within that desire is the drive to push you past your limits, and be the best. Limits are something that is made by your mind, limits and fears are a mere illusion since you created them with your mind. The unknown territory is where the greats reside. In the unknown are endless possibilities which you will never see unless you step into the unknown. Be the best, beat the competition and where it all starts is within your mind.

Becoming a Master.

When you are truly the best at what you do, in the end you will be extremely happy. Happiness is what drives most of you to greater heights. You do not have to settle for anything less than what you deserve. Craftsmen create an art no matter what they are doing. Everything can be an art, you just have to look inside yourself and see how great you can be. Put things into action and start doing.

In life, everything is about putting a plan into action. The future is always there and it always will be. The beauty of life is that it is what you make it. You truly have the opportunity to be a master of your craft, or even multiple crafts. Everything you have in life you will earn, happiness is something that is priceless, but you do have to earn it. Doing a type of work where it makes you really want to keep moving and keep doing it at a high level, will give you a lifestyle which you can sit back and continue living with no second guesses.

  1. People at times are more in love with the idea of pursuing rather than actually pursuing. The time to put into the craft is where fear lies. We don’t want to work and then fail in the end. We see the finish product of someone who has failed yet never gives up on that goal. It is also not all about the skill someone possess, but the work. It’s like the saying, “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”
