How many years have you been trying to lose weight, work on your relationships, get in shape or get out of debt, etc.?
Everyone says “Practice makes perfect” but this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Practice doesn’t make perfect; practice makes permanent.
If you continually practice the wrong things, you will develop bad habits.
When was the last time you asked for help? Not from a book or a blog ( Not that those are bad! Hey! You’re reading this one right! lol ) but when was the last time you sought after a mentor. Someone who could guide you forward to achieve your goals?
When I ask people this question, the answer is almost always never.
People are too afraid to ask for help in areas that they feel that they have failed.
Guess what, we all have areas where we need a mentor/mentors.
“Live to learn and you will really learn to live.” – John C Maxwell
There are people already at the place you want to go.
Doesn’t it make sense to ask them for life directions?
A mentor is a guide that leads you down the path / paths that have worked for them.
I have mentors in multiple areas of my life. The mentors that come to mind are my CrossFit mentors/coaches.
They are my example, the ones that push me to improve my physical health and the ones that point out when I am doing something incorrectly.
They keep my wrong practice from becoming permanent and forming a bad habit.
Most of the bad habits in our life are due to the lack of mentors.
The only way to move our goals ( i.e. lose weight, work on your relationships, get in shape, or get out of debt, etc.) is to find a mentor that can guide you.
“Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it.” ― Ziad K. Abdelnour
If you aren’t improving, then you are stuck. If you are stuck, it’s because there is something you are not seeing and if you can’t see what’s making you stuck…you need a mentor.
Mentors unlock and propel you toward your goals because they point out things you can not see.
My company, Life Organized mentors men and women in the areas of Thoughts, Relationships, Finances, Career and Physical Health.
As a mentor, I guide people down the paths that have worked for me.
I haven’t reached every goal that I am working towards in these five areas, so I understand that there are times when as a mentor, I need to point people toward resources and people that have traveled farther than I can take someone.
“Change is inevitable … growth is optional.” – John C Maxwell
A mentor can be:
- Someone you hire.
- A friend that will be honest with you and is already in a place/level you want to go.
- A video series you purchase or book you read.
I believe that in-person mentoring makes to get you headed in the direction you want your life to go.
