According to the legendary Leonardo Davinci, “One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.”

Although we have no idea what Davinci meant by mastery of oneself, we took this idea to our guest experts and let them share their advice about how to live at your personal best.

And no, it’s not about self-improvement and being driven to be self-disciplined. That would, by the way, likely lead into a downward never ending spiral of trying, not succeeding, feeling like a failure and then trying to improve all over again. Let’s stop the “I’m not good enough” spiral right now.

On this Feb 28thWSA-TV Premier Show episode our guest experts discuss self-mastery including a combination of self care, self-compassion, and self-leadership. Self-mastery is about courage, love and not giving up on yourself. This episode will inspire you to do what it takes to love and accept yourself more and so that as you gain mastery of your self-love you are more available to experience the joys present in your life and minimize negative effects of challenges.

Advice from our WSA Experts

We asked our featured guests to share some of their valuable wisdom with us.

Rita says “Resetting from a stressful situation can be as simple as pausing in moment and taking a few big breaths or take a quick walk or simply stand and move your body.”

Kamini ask us to “Allow emotions to exist and be. Try not to suppress them or judge them. Learn to be self compassionate. And this will lead to self leadership and the ability to step into independence. “
