About the Path to Mastery

Do you know what you want from life? Do you have any idea how to get it? If you knew there was a path to being healthier, wealthier, wiser, happier and/or more purposeful, would you want to follow that path?

Welcome to The Path of Mastery – a proven methodology for becoming the intentional creator of your life.

Creating is actually quite easy; we all do it all the time, both consciously or subconsciously, and our lives are the evidence of what we have created. Mastery is the ability to create consciously, on purpose, with clear intent.

We call our program “The Path of Mastery” for two reasons.

First, because it’s a journey. It’s a journey the begins with a deliberate decision – so you may already be well along your way – and it continues until you achieve the result you’re looking for.

And second, because Mastery is a process of consistent growth.

The first big step is to learn the concepts and become familiar with the tools. Learning to apply the tools comes from practice, through repetition, reinforcement and deepening understanding. Eventually we become masters at applying the tools in every situation. Here at, we believe our emotions are the tools and when we master our emotions, we master our lives.

So The Path to Mastery progresses from where you are right now, from what you have right now, and from who you are right now. It utilizes what you currently know, what you are currently experiencing, and the tools you currently possess. And it includes everything you regret as well as everything you wish for. It is the past, present and future all mixed together.
