Day 28 of 30 Day Blog Challenge
I have to say that in every book I read, every webinar I watch or seminar I attend, a tip that is always shared is to get a mentor. I would even go as far as saying why stop at 1, you can have many mentors and in fact they don’t even need to know.
While the best outcome would be to have a mentor that you can sit in a room and have a one on one chat with, another option is to find someone who inspires you so much that you just would like to be like them. An example of this would be that many people who want to be a great basketball players would have just wanted to be like Michael Jordan (MJ). In a way people who become obsessed with MJ and watch all his games and know his moves would have been indirectly “mentored” by MJ.
You can apply this in the business world too and these days with social media and google you can find everything about someone who inspires you, for me someone like Gary Vaynerchuk (aka Gary Vee) would be someone I aspire to and I watch and read everything #GaryVee. I have all his books, watch his videos, read his blog, follow on social and he does not even know it however he is someone I hands down refer to as a mentor. (well he knows now, if he reads this!)
So be sure to find someone you are inspired by and copycat what they are doing, watch and read all their content and chances are you may just turn out like them!
Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.
