How To Choose The Right Mentor And The Importance Of Being Mentored By Successful People

On today’s 6-Figure Show #349 I’ll share with you the importance of being mentored by successful people and surround yourself with people who get the results that you want to achieve in life and live the kind of lifestyle that you want to live. 

What is the fastest way to go from where you are right now to where you truly want to go? 

Maybe right now what you want is to quit your stressful 9-5 job that you just tolerate to pay the bills, maybe you are behind on your mortgage and you don’t ave freedom to be with your kids, I get it.

Maybe where you want to go is to have the FREEDOM lifestyle where you wake up and do whatever you want, you want to travel around the world and make $10K+ a month from home or your laptop or whatever your goal is. 

One way is to try and figure out everything by yourself, and in the process you’ll waste a ton of time, energy and money making costly mistakes. The chances that you are actually going to get there are not so high. 

I’m not saying that you are not going to make any mistakes as you are climbing the mountain of success, because every successful entrepreneur encounters many challenges and roadblocks along the way. 

What I’m saying is that with the right mentor you can shave months and years out of your learning curve and it’s going to be a much smoother ride.

Because you are going to take action and the mentor will give you FEEDBACK and course correct you along the way. 

How To Choose The Right Mentor: 

  1. Track Record Of Success – Do they have proven results in the marketplace that you want to achieve?
  2. Success Of Their Students – Do they have a lot of testimonials from people who have worked with them?
  3. Experts – Do they know what they are doing to a very high level of excellence?
  4. Passionate – Do they love deeply what they are doing?
  5. Caring – Do they care about the success of the people they are working with?

A great mentor will challenge you to become the type of person you need to become to achieve what you want, he will not tolerate any excuse and tell you as it is honestly. 

A great mentor will believe in you more then sometimes you believe in yourself. 

“Success Leaves Clues” – Tony Robbins. It doesn’t matter what your goal is whether to lose weight, improve your relationships or create a life of freedom for yourself making a living online, you need a mentor.

I’ve had many mentors that I learned from by studying their courses and programs and reading their books. Here are some of my mentors I studied from:

  • Jim Rohn
  • Brendon Burchard
  • Tony Robbins
  • Joe Vitale
  • Darren Hardy
  • Eben Pagan

And the list goes on.. 

I also had mentors I worked with personally that changed everything in my life. Here are some of my mentors:

  • Brian Fanale
  • David Wood
  • Ray Higdon
  • Mike Hobbs 
  • Paul Hutchings 
  • Justin Verrengia
