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.
