Movie Review: The 5 Keys to Mastery

One of the reasons that I am still a Netflix member is because they do have lots of movies/documentaries on spirituality, life, and metaphysics. I recently watched The 5 Keys to Mastery :

The 5 Keys to Mastery are:
1) Surrender to Your Passion
2) Practice,Practice,Practice
3) Get a Guide
4) Visualize the Outcome
5) Play the Edge

The 2 keys that I feel inclined to discuss more are:
* Practice, Practice, Practice
* Visualize the Outcome

I think that life is just all a practice. There is never a finale or a point of true completion. We may set a goal to reach, and upon getting there we realize that there is another goal to move towards immediately following. We may learn to play a song on the piano that we have been practicing for ages and finally get it right, and then realize it is time to move on to the next song. Practice connotes a continuum and allows us to have different amounts and expressions of practice as long as we keep the outcome in mind. Whatever it is that you love and are committed to, practice it daily. Faith without work is dead. Practice a little, practice a lot until practice is living in every singly action and decision to take.
Visualize the outcome! Work backwards. Instead of trying to work towards something, imagine you are already there, and work backwards and believe you are already at the outcome, now just try to fill in the everything in between.

This is a 1 hour long movie with interesting interviewees, I definitely think many actors can benefit from this film as it interviews quite a bit of actors and acting coaches and gives tips on auditions specifically. It is a short movie, and may inspire you to surrender more deeply into your passion!
