Self Mastery | How to Conquer Life & Discover Who You Really Are


Self mastery over your life, career, & relationships is closer than you think. Discover who you truly are by addressing what’s at the core of holding you back: yourself.

What is my purpose? Why is my relationship so hard? How can I enjoy my career more? How can I achieve more success? How can I bring more passion back into my life?

Do you often ask yourself these questions?

If one or more of these common reflections sounds familiar, then it’s time to get serious about self-improvement.

Here we share how the practice of self mastery can lead to an enriched existence and transformed relationships.

What is self mastery?

Self mastery is the ability to take control of your own life. It allows you to recognize and understand your thought processes, habits and behaviors. It is therefore a choice; the way in which you choose to be within the world.

The path to self mastery begins with developing your self-awareness. The more you understand your pattern of reactions and emotions, the more control you will have over your life.

By being self aware, we can act with intention rather than an automatic reaction that we can’t control.

Why is self mastery important?

Self mastery helps you to create a better, happier life. By exploring how to control your internal thoughts, you will not only enrich yourself but the lives of those around you.

When we think negative thoughts, our emotions become vulnerable. This leads to negative reactions and resulting consequences.

With self mastery, you will begin to control these impulses and make rational decisions rather than act purely upon emotion. You will learn to understand and master your feelings to drive happiness in your career, your relationships and day to day life.

How to develop self mastery

Self mastery is an ongoing process. It’s a commitment to a never-ending journey of self-improvement and continued learning to reach your full potential.

The first steps to developing self mastery are:

  1. Making a commitment to yourself

Decide to be the LEAD in your life and make a decision today to invest in your happiness. Committing to self-improvement is often the hardest step but is the beginning to a better life.

  1. Getting real and getting vulnerable

To reach our full potential, we must first be willing to dig deep and explore our vulnerability. Emotions are powerful but they shouldn’t be feared. Recognize and accept your feelings and be ready to share this with others.

  1. Surrounding yourself with inspiring individuals

The people we associate ourselves with are a reflection of our character. To be the person you want to be, you must surround yourself with like-minded, positive individuals.

  1. Finding support

The secret to success in any form of self-improvement is accountability. Seek support from friends, family or a professional to help you on your journey of self mastery.

If you’re serious about self mastery, then a specialist program is the best way to invest in your future.

EVRYMAN is an organization that creates a space for men to come together and learn the required skills to harness self mastery. 

Being expressive and open with our feelings are concepts that aren’t normally available to men. EVRYMAN breaks down this social stigma and inspires members to tap into their authentic self and master their emotions.

More and more men are seeking a safe space to open up and connect. Formed in 2017, there are now 80 EVRYMAN groups across the country discussing everything from fatherhood to fear of failure. 

The EVRYMAN Fundamentals Program

EVRYMAN Fundamentals provides the knowledge, experience and skills to take control of your life. 

As featured in GQ, The New York Times and Men’s Health, the program has helped thousands of men across the globe to harness their emotions and build the life they truly want. Watch more on The TODAY Show.

Over the course of six weeks, you will grow, connect and move forward among a small community of like-minded men. Learn how to access and apply fundamental emotional skills in real life situations, with an open discussion for sharing challenges and successes.

The EVRYMAN Fundamentals program will help you to:

  • Express feelings openly and honestly
  • Share experiences and challenges with other individuals 
  • Develop a deeper connection with yourself 
  • Transform your relationships 
  • Start living a happier, authentic life

Why EVRYMAN is your quickest way to find and reach your potential

The lessons learnt in EVRYMAN Fundamentals have a lifetime effect. 

Men are typically not taught or shown how to handle emotions. This leads to a sense of aloneness which can result in negative actions. By coming together with men that share a common struggle, you will immediately experience the support and reassurance needed to reach your potential.

At the core of your learning will be a deeper awareness of yourself – both physically and mentally. This will help you to create a strong and effective way to be vulnerable as a man.

Most men walk away from EVRYMAN Fundamentals feeling more confident and with deeper, happier, healthier relationships. By opening up to vulnerability and breaking down emotional barriers, you will allow other people to engage and draw closer to you. 

Join a brotherhood committed to self mastery with EVRYMAN Fundamentals.
