personal masteryMany of us find it easier to commit to goals based on our existing level of personal mastery than to commit to goals that appear larger than oneself. In other words we settle for what we believe is possible based on a false and too narrow picture of ourselves.

Deep  underlying beliefs, can only be overcome by changing the mental models and/or beliefs that hold  us prisoner. These mental models and beliefs are often unconscious though we may be conscious (at least our spouses are!) of many behavioral habits we have developed to keep them out of awareness. More important than the habits themselves is the reason we developed them, i.e. what they are protecting.  It is everyone’s challenge to become acutely aware of their ignorance, incompetence and potential for growth while remaining deeply self confident at the same time.
