Are you trying to reinvent the wheel?
Hi this is Conor Grace here again, today I want to outline the importance of having a mentor and how it can save you time, energy and money in the long run!
“I have read thousands of books, attended thousands of trainings, but I can tell you without a doubt. The secret to my success is the two mentors I have. My mentors made me rich” – Dan Lok
The path that lays before you
Whenever you are trying to achieve something, there is usually a long journey to get to the final destination. Whether that’s growing your business, losing weight or finding the love of your life, it takes time and energy…
Maybe you’ve set your S.M.A.R.T goals and you know exactly what it is you want. But that’s only the beginning, now it's time to put one foot in front of the other and get there.
What are you striving for right now?
Whatever it is, good for you. You know where you're going! That’s more clarity than 97% of college graduates according to a 1979 Harvard business study.
How can you get there when you don’t know where “there” is?
Trying to navigate through a city to find the “Nice side of town”. Yet you don’t know where that is, or what it is called.
Having a clear end goal is essential for any real progress to be made. At the end of the day, it's going to be a long journey to reach your “promised land”.
No need to reinvent the wheel
Whatever your goal, I know one thing: it's going to take time and energy to achieve it, that’s a fact. Nothing great comes without hard work.
With that being said, there is no need to work any harder than needs be. If your serious about your goal, you should take any shortcuts possible to reach it. Providing your shortcuts don’t jeopardize the results and that it is ethical.
It can be hard to figure all this out on your own. Believe me, I know…
But I have good news for you.
Whatever your goal is, there is someone out there that has already been there and done that!
They know the pains, the struggles, the obstacles that lay ahead of you. They have walked the path you are on and have been successful!
Now, you wouldn’t want to learn from mentor who has done EXACTLY what you intend to do, would you?
Of course, you would, who would want to try to find a small shop in a busy city all on their own! Especially when you have the opportunity to learn someone who knows the exact address and how to get there!
While It's understandable to want to “figure it out for yourself”. What’s more important, having the Ego boost of doing it “all on your own”
Reaching your goals quicker, easier and more effectively than you ever thought imaginable?
By learning from others, we leverage their time and experience. Meaning we don’t make the same mistakes they did.
How many times have you learned something while in the process of completing a task or
project, that if you knew from the beginning, would have made life much easier?
Hindsights a great thing eh?
Its all those insights and lessons that we are investing into when we decide to follow a mentor.
Just think about how much longer it would take to reach your goal working on your own. You don’t really want to delay yourself that much, do you?
Besides, the quicker you learn what is needed to get from where you are now, to where you want to go, the more time and energy you have to spend enjoying the achievement!
That’s what my mentor did for me.
I was working on a building site. Knowing that I wanted to provide for myself and my family, without working back breaking hours.
But I didn’t know where or how to start.
I was splashing in the water, but I was far from swimming. Hell, I didn’t even know what direction to be swimming…
Looking back on it now, I was drowning….
Working as an employee in a job that was physically and emotionally draining, I had no vehicle to get me to my dreams.
Until one day, I was presented an opportunity. An opportunity to learn a skill that could provide me and my family all I ever wanted.
A vehicle for my success….
Dan Lok reached out his hand and I grabbed it. With his help, I pulled myself onto his speed boat to a life of success and abundance.He pointed me in the right direction and told me to go for it.
I never looked back…
