How To Have A Mentor On A Budget

On the journey to creating the life desired, having a mentor is very beneficial.  A mentor has knowledge which can shorten your journey significantly.

When we think of a mentor, most of us think of a living person sharing their wisdom with us, to help guide us to victory at a substantial cost.  But a mentor can also be someone  who has left a body of work for us to use to obtain their knowledge.  People who have been successful and helped others achieve their goals, are the people whose work we can examine to learn the secrets of success.

Some such people are Napoleon Hill, Neville Goddard, Florence Shinn, Charles F. Haanel & Wallace Wattles just to name a few.  Each taught success principles using varying techniques  but they all had a few things in common. They all believed that you experience in life, what you think and say about yourself daily with emotion.  They also believed in order to achieve your goal, it must be clearly stated.

Some of the books of the above named authors may be found in the public domain, thus  reducing the cost of obtaining their knowledge drastically.  Their work is also offered in audio form on YouTube, another budget friendly venue.  Search their names on either platform to obtain a complete list of their work.

I would suggest the following as must reads:

Napoleon Hill- “Think and Grow Rich” and  “The Law of Success in Seventeen Lessons”

Neville Goddard – “Your Faith Is Your Fortune”  Also check out this website dedicated to his work & writings. Freeneville.com

Florence Shinn – “The Game of Life & How to Play It

Charles F. Haanel – “The Master Key System”  You an get a copy of this book at The Secrect TV under the advance tab.

Wallace Wattles- “The Science Of Getting Rich”  You an get a copy of this book at The Secrect TV under the intermediate tab.  A list of other authors (potential mentors) and their work can also be found there.

Don’t Get Stuck In Yesterday

 

 

Don’t get stuck in yesterday.  Your past achievements are just that, the past. It is only natural, that when we find something that works, we want to keep doing it forever.  The only problem is, some solutions were for a specific period of time and not meant to be used forever.

Life is full of change and in order to keep pace, we must sometimes change as well. Successful companies know this to be true, which explains why,  every few years, they refresh themselves.  The may take a new form of their name, upgrade their builds, revamp their products or change the way they do business.  Leaders of successful companies know that to stay relevant, change is a part of the equation.

For example, most, if not all, brick and mortar stores also have an online presence.  This is so because today, unlike 15 years ago, more and more people shop online for some of their needs.  Almost all sellers except a credit or debit card as payment instead of only cash or checks.  Sellers who do not make changes to reflect the new demands, loss customers and risk going out of business.

Like wise, what worked for you, on your journey to achieving your goals in the past may not now.  If you want the next promotion, you may need to increase your knowledge, make new affiliations, or change your location.  As an entrepreneur, if you want to increase your revenue, you may need to add a new product line, repackage an existing product, or change your marketing, just to name a few.  The changes you make should be in line with the ultimate goals you wish to achieve.

If you keep doing the same things, you will get the same results.  Not all change is bad, getting stuck in the comfort of yesterday at the detriment of your future, that is bad.

Motivational Moment – Believe in You & Your Dreams

 

Do you believe?

Commitment

The last trait we will be discussing is commitment.   Successful people commit to their dreams!  They make a conscious decision to succeed!  The dream becomes a set of smaller goals, and once the goals are set, a plan is developed and action is taken to achieve them.

On the journey to attaining the dream, if resistance arise, a successful person re-examines the path chosen, makes any needed changes, and keeps moving forward. Quitting is not an option!

Unsuccessful people tend to approach their dreams with the mindset of  “I’ll try and if it doesn’t work I’ll try something else”.  So at the first or may be the second sign of adversity, they quit.  Most people quit just before they achieve their dreams.

Many successful people did not attain  success on the first, second or even the tenth try.  They had adversity but they did not quit!  Each adversity is viewed as a learning opportunity instead of a failure.  Successful people stay committed to their dreams!

On the road to achieving your dreams, set goals, develop a plan, take action and stay committed.  If at first you don’t succeed, regroup and keep on trying!!
