Mentors Guarantee Success ….. And They Are So Easy to Find

Very few find mentors in life who help guide them in their thinking, behaviors, choices and habits. But, the few who do, almost always succeed in life and the byproduct of that success, is wealth.

Finding a mentor, therefore, should be the goal of everyone pursuing success or desiring to be rich.

But is finding a mentor a matter of being in the right place at the right time? In other words, does finding a mentor come down to luck?

The answer, fortunately, is no.

Mentors are everywhere. You just need to know where to look in order to find them:

  • Mentors are found running local, community-based non-profits or on the committees of those non-profits – these are often the most successful people in the community volunteering their expert knowledge or unique skills for a noble cause.
  • Mentors are found at work – co-workers, one or two levels above you, who possess superior knowledge or skills.
  • Mentors are found coaching baseball teams, football teams, cheerleading squads, etc.
  • Mentors are found in the parents and volunteers who act as stewards for Boy Scouts or Girls Scouts.
  • Mentors are found in classrooms or seminars, teaching.
  • Mentors are found in gyms, as trainers or paragons for healthy living.
  • Mentors are found in autobiographies or biographies of successful or historical figures, sharing their failures, successes, mistakes and wisdom.
  • Mentors are found on blogs, advising or advocating on some subject matter.
  • Mentors are found on podcasts, doing the same.
  • Mentors are found on TV or the radio, as symbols of achievement.
  • Mentors are found on YouTube or TEDx videos, discussing topics that foster learning and growth.
  • Mentors are found within your inner circle – successful friends or family members who can guide and direct you in living an exemplary life.

Everyone who wants to be successful in life needs a mentor.

If you find one, study how they manage their lives, how they work, how they talk and communicate, what they do to build strong relationships, who they surround themselves with, what habits they have and how they make decisions. Spend as much time as you can, getting to know and understand them.

Find your mentor today. They will teach you what to do and what not to do. Devote yourself to absorbing every breadcrumb of knowledge and wisdom they possess. Those breadcrumbs will steer you in the right direction and help you not only find success, and the wealth success produces, but they will also help you to fast track success.
