Work on yourself to develop true mastery
BOULDER, CO -- "Work hard at your job and you can make a living. Work hard on yourself and you can make a fortune." - Jim Rohn. Your work is a reflection of you. If you're not getting the results you're looking for, stop looking for better strategies. Instead, look inside.
Are you currently the person who would attract the level of success you seek? Your outer conditions are a reflection of your inner reality. As James Allen has said, your circumstances reveal you to yourself. Where you are right now: that's you. If you want something different: improve you. Most people focus on their craft or their "job." That's all well and good. However, you'll get far more bang-for-your-buck by focusing on yourself. 20% of your energy should be devoted to your work. 80% of your energy should be devoted to rest and self-improvement. This is what fuels your work and makes it better than others'. Self-improvement is more than books and true rest is renewal.
While others are trying to improve their job, you're continuously improving yourself, expanding your vision, skills, and abilities. Within a short period of time, you'll have developed true mastery. Everyone else is trying to hone their "craft." Don't work on your job. Work on yourself. When you do, your work will far exceed what other people are painstakingly producing. Your work will be cleaner, clearer, and more powerful because you'll be more evolved as a person.
