#205 The Price of Mastery -- Is It Worth the Cost?
Play Episode

We’re coming to you today from the city of Vilnius, Lithuania. We have loved traveling through the Baltic States.

Today we’re going to continue answering some questions (since we were accidentally cut short in the last episode).

We were asked about certain types of activities and whether or not our children participate in them because of our unique lifestyle. For example, ballet, piano, gymnastics, sports, and other activities that require mastery.

In this episode, we discuss the pros and cons — the exchange rate — of the choices we’ve made and how that plays into mastery or skills.

We philosophize about the breadth of exposure versus the depth of mastery

Is one approach better? Healthier? Lead to greater happiness?

If you study the lives of great masters — in current times and throughout history — you often find a train wreck of broken relationships and mental and emotional disasters. That’s often because their development has been ‘lopsided’ — an emphasis on the ‘one thing’ they’re mastering, instead of a well-rounded development.

Our focus has been on developing holistic mastery of well-being — mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, social, and financial. 

We expound on how and why we do that in this episode.

If you would like to help your teen or young adult develop holistically then make sure to register them for our Habits for a Successful Life online class.

Because we recognized that the healthiest and happiest people on the planet are well-rounded in their development — mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, social, and financial — we wanted to ensure that our teens would learn how to develop in each of these areas.

We couldn’t find classes that taught them how to do that so we created our own based off of our decades of research into peak performance and human development.

That is what the Habits for a Successful Life class is all about. And teens LOVE it. It becomes one of their favorite classes — ever! And it helps them to develop better habits and an understanding of themselves, human psychology, and the ingredients for creating a happy life.
