Secrets of Personal Mastery – L. Michael Hall, Ph.D (2002)
Design: Secrets of Personal Mastery takes you on a journey into the patterns that we use to introduce the Meta-States model in the 3-day APG training (Accessing Personal Genius). The design is to give you an experience of the power of Meta-States for finding and creating executive states of mind. This allows you to get to your “boss” and to take control of your states and experiences.
Benefits: Secrets of Personal Mastery enables you to access your executive levels and take charge of your mental-emotional programming. Use it to develop the higher frames of mind that will enable you to control your states, take effective action, access your personal genius, and be at your best. Secrets treats mind as an emergent process of our entire mind-body-emotion system and leads to one of the secrets:
It’s not what you think that controls your destiny and experiences, but how you think—your frames of mind.
To achieve personal mastery, this book coaches you through various thought
experiments that work with and upon your “executive” powers. As you engage these processes, you enter into the higher management of your own mind at all its levels. This prepares you for the ultimate development of excellence—accessing your personal genius. Ready for a journey? Ready to explore the higher structures that organize and govern the very basis of your life? Good.
Secrets of Personal Mastery takes you through a course that accesses and allows you to re-structure your—
mind and emotions
innate genius for personal and interpersonal development
passion for the excellence of expertise
languaging for empowering semantic states
mind-muscle connection for greater congruency
Style: Secrets of Personal Mastery is an introductory book to Meta-States. It is written with little of the specialized terminology and jargon of the Meta-States model as it applies Meta-States to the subject of mastery.
