Tips On How To Master Any Skill In Life

Do you want to master something in your life? Do you want to do something so well that you could do it in your sleep?

This doesn't mean that you have to be the best in the world, but at least the best you could ever be. It's in the human nature to want to grow. To want to expand. To want to master something.

It doesn't matter if we are talking about playing baseball or simply how to wash the dishes as fast as possible. It could be anything - write, swim, sell, be a mother, be a father, make PowerPoints, juggle, ski, be a loving partner or it could even be to become an expert in your field of study.

Whatever skill you want to master, there are actions you can take to get there. Real actions. Every day. And with this in mind, here are 58 ways that will help you master any skill out there.

It is not possible to try them all, but as you read on you can probably find a few that inspire you and provide a fresh perspective. That's the point of this entire list, to give you some new ideas for how to move forward.  

1. Adapt - If your surroundings change, don't hold on to the past. "Move with the cheese" and do the best of the new situation.

2. Ask - Be curious. All the time. Ask and keep asking until you understand how it's really done and how it truly works.

3. Avoid - Stay away from the so called dream stealers. Don't let the negativity and lack of dreams from other people drag you down.

4. Believe - Trust your own capabilities and believe in yourself. If a thing is humanly possible, consider it to be within your reach.

5. Balance - No one can practice 24 hours a day. And even if we could, it would probably make us go crazy. So make sure you don't neglect your family, friends and other things in your life.

6. Blog - Perhaps you can start to share everything you learn right now. For that, there's no better way than to start a blog. See it as a record of your progress and as a way to push you forward.

7. Brag - Whenever you lose motivation or urgency, start bragging. By saying you already know how to do something, you surely put the pressure back on yourself to live up to your words. Now you have to learn.

8. Break - Get some rest when you've pushed yourself too hard. It's during the breaks that students really learn.

9. Breathe - Are you feeling angry? Stressed out? Frustrated? Then stop, and breathe. Fill your lungs and bring yourself back to the moment. Only from a calm and controlled state can you take meaningful action.

10. Celebrate - Did something great? Then celebrate! Be happy and reward yourself for every little progress. If you don't, what's the point of improving?

11. Continue - Keep going when things get tough and persevere through thick and thin. Be flexible, but don't give up.

12. Create - Whatever you want to master, there’s always a way to create your own thing. Create a course, a website, a new form or anything that will get you thinking about the structure of the topic.

13. Decide - Commit 100% and really go for it. Hoping it will work out is not enough; you have to decide in your heart that this is what is going to happen. THIS is the way forward.

14. Design - Craft your own future. Sit down and sketch out a clear and inspiring goal for where you want to go. Then outline the path from here to there.

15. Discuss - Even if you think you really got it, take in other people's arguments and discuss what the best way really is.

16. Enjoy - It's all about the journey and not the end goal. Keep that in mind and enjoy every single day of following your dreams.

17. Feel - How does your body feel when you practice? Are you in a good state for maximum performance? Be in touch with your body and begin to notice how it feels when you’re "in the zone".

18. Fight - Stand up for what you want to achieve and be strong whenever you face trouble. You got to fight for your right to excel.

19. Focus - Be in the moment. Forget about everything else and don't let anything distract you. When you practice, you practice fully.

20. Identify - When something's not working, get curious. Go deep and find the root cause of your problem. It's the only way for a long-term solution.

21. Imagine - Have faith and picture yourself succeeding. How would it look like to truly master this? Can you see it?

22. Imitate - How does the current masters do it? How do they work? How do they walk, talk and live? Model successful people and you will see amazing results.

23. Inform - Spread the word to your friends and family. The more people that know about what you want to master or what you want to achieve, the more people will help you get there.

24. Integrate - Make sure you and what you do are one and the same. Stay congruent and let it all be part of your life, not just something that you "do".

25. Invent - A field of study or a skill can always be improved, so don't be afraid of thinking in new ways. You might just contribute to the development of the skill or field.

26. Investigate - When you get stuck, don't stop and ponder. Instead, use all your powers to find out the real answer. How does it r-e-a-l-l-y work?

27. Join - You're not alone. Join a group, a class or an organization and learn from those striving towards the same goal. Your collective power will bring you all forward much faster.

28. Listen - When you find someone who really knows what they are talking about, just listen. Don't interrupt, just listen.

29. Live - This is life. Laugh, enjoy and don't take it too seriously. There’s always room for improvement.

30. Locate - Find the best people in the field. How do they do it? What did they have to overcome? Watch, learn, and practice.

31. Love - Always keep the passion for what you're doing and never get caught up in minor problems. As long as the love remains, you will succeed.

32. Modify - Be flexible. Don't get stuck in old patterns. If you see something's being done better, modify yourself and try it. Be like water and be prepared to take on any shape or form.

33. Offer - Be helpful to others and you will get it back in numerous ways. Coach them, review their work, or simply run their errands. It will all come back to you when you really need it.

34. Organize - Be structured and organize everything you've learnt so far. Draw a mind map, sort your papers or just plan your day. Structure and clarity helps you focus on the task at hand instead of getting side-tracked.

35. Perfect - Never stop until it's perfect. Every little detail or part must be completely understood for maximum benefit.

36. Plunge - Don't be afraid. There's no failure, only feedback so throw yourself head first and just see where it takes you.

37. Practice - No one can learn how to ride a bike from reading a book. It always requires practice, practice, practice. So stop thinking about it and just do it.

38. Prioritize - Are you spending time on what is most important to you? Make sure you are productive, not just keeping busy.

39. Question - Is this the only way to do it? Don't take old truths for granted, question them and you will soon understand why they are there in the first place.

40. Read - Keep expanding your mind through new information and new insights. You become what you read.

41. Reduce - Get rid of everything that isn't helping you to move forward. Time-stealers, focus-stealers and distractions must all be removed.

42. Reflect - Take the time to think through what you did well and what you can improve for next time. It's worth it.

43. Reinforce - Never forget the basics and reinforce good performance so it will always stay with you.

44. Repeat - Repetition is the mother of all skill. Your mind forgets fast so keep it all alive through constant reviews.

45. Risk - No risk, no reward. We all wish we could hold on to something safe in the moment of truth. But this is no video game, there's no save button in life so be prepared to take chances for maximum results.

46. Seize - Capture every opportunity to grow and get closer to your goal. It's all about being open and noticing those small opportunities that pass us every day.

47. Sleep - Both your body and mind has to be fresh and energetic if you want to improve. So never forget to rest. Sleep will enable you to perform.

48. Smile - Smiling will tell your brain you're having fun. We all know we're better learners when we're having fun.

49. Stretch - You have to get out of your comfort zone and stretch yourself to reach the next level. It's the only way.

50. Study - Go to school and take a course if possible. Simply, use the fact that many others have spent a great deal of time to create material that might suit you perfectly.

51. Target - Be clear in your mind with what you really want to achieve. Both long-term and short-term. Is it actionable, tangible, and motivating?

52. Teach - After you've learned something new, teach others. It will immediately reveal what you are not 100% certain of.

53. Try - You have to try it in reality as early as possible. E.g. learning a language just from a book will never work, so get out there and try!

54. Use - In whatever situation you find yourself, ask "is there a way I can apply this skill right here, right now?”

55. Verify - Is this the way to do it? Get clarity and your certainty of success will continue to grow.

56. View - Try to see the big picture of what you're trying to achieve. Open up your view and see it all.

57. Write - Writing will force your mind to create structure and meaning in what you learn. Once you progress, start writing your own book.

58. Master - Act like a master. Talk like a master. See the world like a master. The sooner you start to live the life you want, the sooner it will become your reality.

Now you are wondering how these can applied in your own life. That's a good thing. It means that you have found a couple of actions that you can take immediately.

Basic Rules For A Fulfilling Life

Being fulfilled is an awesome feeling, but unfortunately, it’s a feeling that many have trouble finding. Fulfillment is an easy concept on the surface, yet it’s so elusive. However, living a fulfilling life is well within the reach of everyone. Here are 18 ways to discover some fulfillment.

1. Come to peace with the way things are.
“If only I had more money, I’d…” Or, “If I had more time, I’d…”
How many times do you hear people say these daily? Many times, I bet.
People are so obsessed with what they don’t have that they never allow themselves to be satisfied with what they do have in life. Constantly having a mindset of wanting more and more will squash any chances you have of acceptance. Embrace acceptance and watch your stress levels go down.

2. Take timeouts in life frequently.
Every so often, it’s good to hit the pause button on life and soak in the moment. Life can get hectic with work, relationships, and stress leading us to not realize how awesome life is. Take time out of your busy day and smell the roses.
Finding the beauty and joy in the everyday mundane will allow countless little epiphanies and revelations, which will not only broaden your horizons, but make you grateful for all the things that are overlooked on a day-to-day basis.

3. Include some gratitude in your daily life.
Focusing on the negative leads to you becoming a toxic individual. Practicing gratitude has a myriad of benefits, such as happiness, more optimism, and better health. Challenge yourself to practice gratitude by writing or telling someone one thing you’re thankful for each day.

4. Spice up your life with some daily thrills.
Life is meant to be one big adventure, so get to exploring. Become daring and start saying yes to things you always talk yourself out of. Learn a new skill such as ballroom dancing, or go skydiving.

5. Treat yourself like royalty.
Do you beat yourself up over things that happened in the past? If so, then you need to stop that immediately. It’s time to forgive yourself and stop living in the past. If you don’t show respect and kindness to yourself, then how can you expect someone else to? How can someone else see how awesome you are if you can’t see it yourself?

6. Eat in a way that is satisfying and healthy.
Eating healthy doesn’t entail the daily consumption of boring and bland meals, such as steamed chicken and broccoli. If fat loss is your goal, living a fulfilling life and eating awesome, tasty foods is very doable. Eating healthy should please your palate and your fitness goals.

7. Make exercise a priority, not an exception.
If you care about living longer, having more energy, and wanting to look hotter, then look no further than exercising to take care of all those needs. From improving your mood to improving your sex life, exercise is a no-brainer.

8. Stop making life so difficult.
Sometimes, life is meant to be simple. Stop overanalyzing everything and making every decision complicated and complex. Life isn’t meant to be filled with stress. Chill out and take a walk through the park or go have a quiet and relaxing dinner.

9. Punch fear in the face and get to living.
Fear is a natural part of our lives. Conquering fear starts in our heads and the mindset that we approach fear with. Experiencing failure provides value when it comes to living a fulfilling life and being the best version of yourself. Through failures, you’ll learn lessons that will make you a better person down the road.

10. Stop letting others determine your self-worth.
When you compare yourself to others, you’re devaluing yourself. Looking at someone else’s life from the outside is the same as looking at a highlight reel. Who knows how long it took them to get to their current position? Don’t compare your life to others.

11. Kick all your negative company to the curb.
Life is far too short and awesome to deal with negative people who are full of toxic thoughts and habits. Keeping negative people around guarantees you’ll be unhappy and miserable. Equate negative people to mosquitoes and put some repellent on so they can’t suck the life out of you.
12. Learn to enjoy your own company.
Don’t become reliant on other people’s company or feel the need to be in a relationship to feel complete. Being in a relationship needs to come from a want, not a need.

13. Commit to being a lifelong learner.
Those who desire to live a fulfilling life need to have a curious and hungry mind. By being a lifelong learner you realize that there’s a vast world out there that is waiting for exploration and adventures. By constantly learning, you’re increasing your knowledge and perspective of the world.

14. Escape from all the craziness that lives in our head.
The story that exists in your head is not even close to the actual day-to-day story that you live. Eliminate all those negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones. Positive thinking leads to positive results.

15. Challenge yourself to become a social butterfly.
Make an effort to connect with more people, smile, and maintain eye contact a little longer than normal. This forces you to become more open to the world, leading to greater connections. When meeting new people, choose people from all different backgrounds and beliefs. This allows you to become a more well-rounded individual.

16. Embrace living outside your comfort zone.
If you never take yourself outside of your comfort zone, you’ll never know what you’re capable of in life. All the magic in life happens outside your little box. By staying inside your shell, you will only produce a mediocre version of yourself. Start living outside your comfort zone today by doing something you normally wouldn’t do.

17. Go for your dreams and let no one take them from you.
You can’t be afraid to go after what you want. Following your dreams is a vital part of living a life of fulfillment and shouldn’t be overlooked. Everyone says to follow your dreams, but few do. You only get to live through this thing we call life once, so you might as well make the best of it and live it on your own terms.

18. You should quit being so serious 24/7.
Would you please have a sense of humor and smile? Not everything is a matter of life and death. Feel free to take time off from playing the role of Captain Serious and joke around and act stupid. Laughter helps people live longer, while also reducing blood pressure. The world would be a better place if we would all quit taking ourselves so seriously and get a little stupid.

What Will Happen When You Start Pursuing Your Dreams

So you took the leap. You’re pursuing your passions and it’s a relatively new reality for you. Or perhaps you're entertaining the idea, and your ball of nerves and upset stomach have held you back from jumping of the cliff and into uncertainty. 

Let’s just get real and honest about a few things you can expect when you take the big risk to pursue your dreams. 

1. You are going to be scared sh*tless, more than once.
Fear may be paralyzing at times, yet the desire and passion to do what you love has a stronger hold on you than fear ever could. 

2. There are times you're going to be uncertain. 
And it may be really, really uncomfortable. It’s OK. 

3. You're going to get way out of your comfort zone.
This is a good thing, because you’re going to need to in order to grow and expand the way your purpose asks you to. 

4. Doubt will inevitably creep in.
You'll eventually learn to either laugh at it and yourself, or spend way too long entertaining it and making tons of meaning out of it when you could be chasing your dreams instead.

5. You’re going to piss some people off. 
Not on purpose, of course — at least not! Sometimes people around you are afraid of change, and they can certainly be intimated by happiness, so if they try to create drama or conflict, remember: you can’t control that and you don’t have get involved. The only thing you can control is how you react to it. Choose wisely.

6. You’re going to learn what you're made of. 
There will be times when you want to give up, when you question every decision you made that day. Eventually you'll just decide to roll with it and know that it’s part of the process. This will end up being incredibly rewarding.

7. You will get comfortable asking others for help.
Because you'll need to do it at some point along your journey.

8. There will come a day when you'll want to stop taking risks and settle for something with more security.
You'll ponder it, you really will, then quite quickly you'll realize that living in your genius is far more rewarding than a false sense of security. There is no going back, because you’ve come this far and it’s simply time to just keep going. 

9. You will feel vulnerable.
You'll feel like you don’t know if you’re ready to share your art with the world yet. Because it’s scary and so close to your heart,  you almost believe it, or maybe it’s simply you aren’t ready for it to be judged. This is normal.

10. There will be a day when you’re as happy as a kid who just discovered their first jump house, all smiles and laughter. 
In this moment, you'll wonder, “Why the hell did I wait so long? I've never felt more alive in my entire life. The ups and downs are just part of this crazy ride, and man, am I glad I didn’t quit last week.” 

At the end of the day, the risk is always worth it. So have fun as you jump off the cliff and enjoy the ride for what it is: a wild adventure.

How To Make Your Life Easier & Enjoyable

There are numerous benefits in simplifying your life. You will have more time to spend with friends and family, there will be less stress in your life, you will be able to spend additional time on your favorite hobby… and overall, there will be more joy and happiness in your life.

Contrary to what most people think, simplifying your life isn’t really that complicated, it is actually quite easy, you only have to take a few simple steps.

Here are 10 simple things you can do immediately to simplify your life and to render it more enjoyable:

#1: Turn off your cell phone
Once work is finished and you want to spend some quality time with your family, simply turn off your cell phone.

#2: Stop multi-tasking
Although, it may seem like you move on quicker if you work on several tasks in parallel, research has shown that it is actually more beneficial to focus only on one single task at a time. On top of that, it will allow you to greatly simplify your life.

#3: Throw away old stuff you no longer need
Clean out your garage, wardrobe, toolbox… and throw away or give away stuff you no longer need. If you didn’t use an object for at least 5 years, there is a good chance that you will never use it again.

#4: Ask for help
You can’t do everything in life on your own, so don’t be shy and don’t feel embarrassed to ask for help. Why would you want to complicate your life unnecessarily trying to figure out everything on your own if there are other people who already solved those problems and are willing to help you?

#5: Slow down and relax
Life isn’t a race and you will be happier and more successful if you slow down and relax every now and then. Life isn’t only simpler and more enjoyable if you take some time to relax, but  typically you will also have your best ideas when you find yourself in a relaxed state.

#6: Enjoy the simple things in your life
You don’t need a sports car and a big villa to be happy and to enjoy your life. True happiness is found in simple things, like holding someone’s hand you love, taking a walk in the park, enjoying the beautiful sunset…

#7: Stop doing what you are not passionate about
Life is too short and precious to waste it with activities you don’t like and you are not passionate about. If you are not passionate about your job, start looking for something you are more interested in. It's not that you should resign tomorrow, but at least get a clear idea what you really want to do and start looking for something else.

#8: Stop trying to be perfect
Trying to be perfect in everything you do adds a lot of stress to your life. Simplify your life by doing most of your tasks just good enough. If you have to do the same things over and over again, try to improve each time and ultimately you will reach perfection in a more natural and playful way.

#9: Laugh about your mistakes
Learn from your mistakes and avoid repeating them in the future, but don’t take them too serious. We all make mistakes and that’s absolutely normal, actually that’s the way we learn and grow.

#10: Spend less time on social media websites
Initially it may be fun, but the more time you spend on those social media sites, the more complicated your life will become. You still need to take care of your children, you still need to work, you still need to cook and probably lots of other things. However, if you spend 3 hours a day on Facebook, it is going to be quite complicated to fulfill all your other responsibilities
