To have mastery over restraint is synonymous to having mastery over governing your desires and commanding yourself to follow through with it. It is not your needs that discourages you, but your impulsive desires.
There are numerous paths to achieving mastery, and if you are determined you will definitely find one that suits you.
But an essential component in the process is determining your mental and psychological strengths and using them to your advantage.
To reach mastery level will demand many hours of dedicated focus and practice.
It will be difficult to get there if your work doesn’t bring you joy and you are constantly struggling to overcome your own weaknesses.
Focus on looking deep within and come to an understanding of these specific strengths and weaknesses within you while being as realistic as possible.
Coming into terms with your strengths, you can lean on them with utmost intensity.
Once you take this path of self discovery, you will gain momentum.
You will not be slowed down by conventions, or overloaded with skills that go against your inclinations and strengths.
When you gain clarity with your strengths, your creative and intuitive powers will be naturally awakened.
