You may have heard that masters aren’t made overnight. This is true. Stevie Ray Vaughan, often considered one of the most incredible guitarists in rock history, famously practiced so often that his fingers would bleed. And athlete Shaun Palmer, on his way to winning competitions in mountain biking, snowboarding, and snowmobiling, has broken nearly every bone in his body. In fact, some researchers say that it takes at least 10,000 hours of practice within a 10-year period to become world class at something.
Most of us simply don’t have 10,000 hours to practice something we love.
Fortunately, this process can be accelerated! Whether you are passionate about playing chess, woodworking, computer programming, or anything else; you can actually accelerate your progress towards mastery in a field you are interested in. We’ll show you how in our upcoming Mastery Acceleration seminar, running from August 23 to August 25 near our offices in Minnetonka, Minnesota.
The seminar will be led by both Paul Scheele and Stewart Emery. Paul knows how the mind works, and Stewart knows how to develop talent. Together they will give you the short-cut processes you need for true acceleration.
Here is the tip of the iceberg:
- Deliberate Practice – Yes, you must put in the time, but nowhere near the 10,000 hours, and it is not the type of practice that you may think! It’s not just playing a round of golf every day. It’s different. It is a precise way to practice that generates results in a way that is super accelerated. Even if you do not wish to become the absolute greatest, the accelerated technique that we have developed will help you dramatically improve the way you practice and build skill.
- Ignition – This is one of the secrets that instantly creates and sustains motivation needed to carry you through the deliberate practice. This ignites a passion that makes everything easier, more enjoyable, and rewarding beyond imagination. At the seminar, Stewart and Paul will share with you a number of stories of mastery gained almost overnight because of an ignition point.
- Radical Mentoring – If you are an American Idol fan, you’ve seen kids with decent talent grow significantly each week, right before your eyes. The key is radical mentoring. Most coaches have absolutely no idea how to do this, but we’ll give you step-by-step instructions so that even your spouse, colleague, or a fellow participant in the seminar could provide the mentoring you need.
Once you get great at something, it is much easier to get great at anything.
The gears shift in your brain, and everything else in life gets easier. You’ve heard the expression that making the first million is the hardest part, and the second million is easy. That’s the same with developing mastery.
Your next 10 years can be the best decade of your life. As you become masterful at something you love, your life becomes a gift to the world. Your brain will rewire, causing welcomed and noticeable changes in your life. You’ll be walking taller, speaking clearer, and acting with a purpose.
At the retreat, Spring Forest Qigong Master, Chunyi Lin will be joining us. Chunyi knows about mastery. He’s mastered Qigong, Feng Shui, Tai Chi, and Medicinal Herbs.
11-year-old wonder pianist William Yang will be joining us. Just take a moment to watch a part of this video, and you’ll know why William is someone you will want to meet. He has mastery down pat at such a young age, and is truly an inspiring story.
If you have a talent that you want to accelerate, be here for our August seminar!
This will not be a typical seminar.
We’re bringing you strategies, processes, and results you simply cannot get anywhere else. We’re expecting 30 to 60 participants, so you will have plenty of personal attention from Stewart, Paul, and our coaching experts. Considering that over 250,000 people have attended Stewart’s trainings live, this will be a rare intimate experience.
