Through reading and constantly studying, I have learned that mentorship is one of the vital components to achieving success. Having a mentor to help guide an individual to success will automatically eliminate many other mistakes that an individual would make when on their journey. In business and entrepreneurship mistakes are common and will occur often. Having a mentor will greatly decrease the likely hood of the most common mistakes occurring.
The importance of having a mentor is easy to realize and understand. However, the process of finding a mentor may seem challenging. With the never ending opportunities within the internet and social media, finding a knowledgeable mentor is easier then ever.
The easiest way to find a mentor would be to look within your own circle of influences. Asking friends and family for references to individuals they know personally who are successful is a quick way to start your search. This strategy is also on a personal level, so some form of trust will already exist between you and your possible mentor.
With the easy access of the internet, the opportunity to connect with individuals globally has never been easier. Information and experience has never been more easily accessible then how it is now. The chance to pursue success has never been more abundant and available. If a mentor can not be found through personal references, the internet is freely open to all. Real estate is one of my methods I am personally researching to become financially free. Real estate gurus such as Donald Trump and Robert Kiyoaski provide tons of information for people to get started in real estate. Within any and every industry, successful people exist. Following in their guidance will ensure some level of personal success. If you truly desire to be successful, you will find a way to achieve your dreams.
In our American Society we glorify success as expensice cars, clothes, and other meaningless possessions. As much as these items are interesting and appealing, they hold no real value. Not only are they worthless but their not what’s truly important. The generations before us centered their time and energy on providing for their families and saving for a rainy day. It appears to me that along the way we as a population, lost sight of our values and what’s important. The problem with our current lifestyle is that it is unsustainable. To much of the population doesn’t center their time providing for themselves. That causes them to rely on the government to provide for them. The government in return takes from those that are responsible for themselves.
Success isn’t the best fashion or the most expensive car. Success is what you make it. Personal success for me is freedom and comfort. Freedom from the demands of a job. Comfort to live, spend, and enjoy my life without barriers. On average a person spends 40 hours of their time at a job working for someone else. This time does not include transportation time, break time, and the stress that comes along with their job. Those hours that turn into days, that graduate into years, can never be replaced. Your time should not be bought off with an hourly wage. The sooner we notice the truth, the sooner we set our selves free from the slavery of a job.
He makes such a valid point. When you value what you already have, you take care of it. You do what is necessary to preserve or advance what you have. To become wealthy we must value our lives as it is, and from their we will prosper.
The idea of fearlessness and courage displayed in this post is amazing. The same attitude and drive should be applied in every aspect of our lives to achieve full greatness. Everyday a new opportunity is waiting to be discovered, seize the moment and chase your dreams!
