If you're lost, ask a Mentor for directions

Too often, people go ask too many people for their opinion or their advice.

That's how you get lost and get stuck.

Imagine stopping and asking someone for directions when you're lost and they don't know how to get to where you want to go. If they didn't know the way, you wouldn't follow their directions.

You were taught to go ask people for their advice or because you lack self-confidence you go "check" with other people before you make a decision or take action.

There are only 3 people you should be listening to:

  1. Find someone getting the results you want. Pick someone who is succeeding in your career the way you aspire to and emulate their qualities and characteristics. Copy them but don't compare yourself to them.

  2. Find a mentor. Pick one person that can guide you. Pick one, only one, and do exactly what they tell you to do. If you were going to attempt to summit Mount Everest, you'd hire a guide be

cause your life depends upon it.

  1. Pay for advice. It pays to get the right advice. The only people you should get advice from are people who have knowledge that you need but don't possess that can help you succeed faster or easier. If you have a plumbing problem, you wouldn't hire an electrician.

Too often we ask the wrong people to point us in the right direction.

And if you're offering others advice, make sure you know what you're talking about. Only offer facts, not your opinions. If people value your opinion, make sure it's valuable when offering it.

Lastly if you want rea

lly good advice, learn how to tap into the power of your subconscious mind.

All successful people have honed the skill of being able to use their intuition to come up with ideas and plans on their own to achieve their goals.

If you don't know how to do that, then look for the 3 people I mentioned above and find someone to teach you and guide you. Maybe that's me?

Here is my last piece of advice...

Stop picking up your phone and scrolling through social media and watching YouTube videos

searching for the answer to your success.

The 3 people I mentioned in this email have better answers than you'll find scouring the internet.

Thank you for reading!
