Master Yourself

by David Meyer

Bestseller Robert Greene guides you through the arduous but rewarding journey of finding your passion, committing to it and developing mastery in the field you love the most.

Robert Greene is a monster bestseller of life guidance that centers around practical ways of imposing your will on the world. He usually writes about how to gain and hold onto power, and often takes an adversarial view of human interaction. Here, however, he offers an almost incongruously mindful manual to mastering your great passion and building your life around it.


To become a master, you must have an unwavering desire for your subject. This, Greene asserts, gives you the patience and determination to persevere through practice and setbacks.
