About Mentors and Coaches

When it comes down to whether or not you succeed, so much rides on the support you get in your venture. You either have it or you don’t. Support is great! When you have it daily and feel the sense of community with others doing what it is you’re doing, it really makes a difference. Dedicated partners helping you every step of the way keep you on track to success.

One of the tools I use is JT DeBolt’s Daily Power-UP Call. His topics cover pretty much everything including money, health, career, relationship, spirit, and lifestyle. Well worth hearing. What most people need is to accomplish an important “shift” in their mindset from that of an “employee” to that of a “business owner”. BTW, if you haven’t yet read Robert Kiyosaki’s Cashflow Quadrant, you should! There he talks about four types of people that make up the world of business. By identifying where most of our cash is coming from, we can determine the type we represent. If where you are today is not where you want to be, you need to take action and develop the right path.

Being entrepreneurs is not the role we are made aware of as we are growing up. From a very early age we are programmed to go to school and get a good job. We’re not taught to be or do what we “really” want be and do. We’re not taught how to become masters of wealth and of our time. So it’s up to us to learn how to make the shift over from the employee mentality to one of controlling our own destiny.

We have to learn to free our minds of the limiting beliefs we may have. Here is where it really pays to have help from others who are already where we want to be and are doing what we want to be doing. Just follow their path and theoretically we should end up having the same results as them. It’s true. We simply have to get the schooling to attain the qualification to be in their category.

Conditioning or reconditioning our mind for maximum success is critical. Identifying and getting rid of limiting beliefs from the past is a must. Robert Kiyosaki talked about this when he first began to escape the employee mindset.

There is something called “paralysis by analysis” which is caused by our educational system punishing people for making mistakes. “A” students are successful really only for just making the least amount of mistakes. Interesting yes? However, in the real world, people who take action and succeed are the ones who make the “most” mistakes and learn from them to win in the game of life.

Many people are not successful because they fail to fail enough times. They let the fear of failure hold them back. When Thomas Edison was criticized for making 1,014 mistakes before creating the electric light bulb; he said “ I did not fail 1,014 times. I successfully found out what did not work 1,014 times.” This is a different way of thinking than most, right?

90% of wealth comes from people who control their own lives. They have mastered systems and their use of time. Speaking about time management, also read The Four Hour Workweek, by Tim Ferriss.

Anyone can become wealthy, but there is a limitation. That limitation is usually the way you think, or your mindset, as we discussed briefly a few minutes ago. Simply put, to change your life, and to be successful you must change your thinking. You must take full responsibility for your own results in business and life. 

No matter how powerful something is, no one can force you to use it. No one can make you change. YOU have to learn how to use it and put it to use. You are the “driver” of your life. So commit to being a “no excuses” type of person and take personal responsibility for your results in your “being”. Advisers know very little. Mentors have “been there” and “done that.” Are you willing to listen to and follow a mentor’s instructions and help given to you? If so, here’s a link to another one of mine.

Every One of Us Make The Difference!

We are all worlds within ourselves. Sages in the Babylonian Talmud (Tractate Sanhedrin 37a) say whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.

Brandi Snyder in a quote said, “To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.” How true! The effect we can have on others in our environment is immense. When possible, be the shining star in the constellation of other’s lives. Hey, have you heard this Jimmy Cliff song yet?

Also by the way, have you seen this awesome environmental impact video yet? It really shows why everyone must increase their contribution to making our world reality more positive by living according to the natural law of shared resources. Stay within the confines of proper consumption and allowing regeneration. How is it you are relating to our world? Given the latest atmospheric and geological events, it doesn’t appear that our global situation is good. Those of us who want to live in harmony and peace must walk the walk. Who’s the driving force of your decision making? If it’s you, then that’s a good start. You can live your values. Use your common sense and be your own leader … do your thinking for yourself. Play your part in “the family of life” as you best fit. The difference will benefit us all.

But even more-so, Maimonides said, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

If I can make an impact on even one person that in effect causes him or her to live a life of happiness without worries and the feeling of over-working, I may have done enough. But to have an exponential effect … Well that’s simply marvelous! I imagine that would qualify me to be some sort of hero … not just a mere sand witch (bad play on words …). Nah seriously, if in the opinion of others I affect a change in such a way that someone learns to “take the reins on their horse”, so to say, and ride like a champion, wouldn’t that qualify? That’s one of the reasons why I promote Matt Lloyd’s 21 step internet business system. By far the most effective system for making high ticket commissions online in the world. It will dramatically help you to change and take care of preparing you to be a more successful “home” business person . . . with the tools proven to do what they do, best. What’s more, you will begin becoming a “freed” agent in the mix that makes our world. Set free to do your “thang” . . . an adventure of personal growth and development.
