22 Apr Are you trying to go it alone?
A while back, I did a survey and over 80% of those who responded said that they would rather try to get UNstuck by themselves than try to find a mentor. I understand this feeling. It’s sometimes difficult to admit that you need or want help. But the reality is, getting UNstuck all by yourself is not as easy as it sounds… or you would have done it already!
But jumping in with just any mentor or life coach who is successful is almost as pointless as going it alone.
This is a bit of a soapbox issue for me. In order to find the best life coach or mentor for you, you first need to have a vision of where you want to go and what you want to achieve. After all, if you don’t know what you want, how can you expect your mentor help you? You may be thinking, “That’s exactly why I need a mentor!” So let me explain …
What’s your #1 objective? To transition from corporate to entrepreneurship? To follow your heart and find your truth (when you might not know exactly how)? To learn how to become a better leader?
Clearly identify your objective before you identify your mentor. And then find the mentor who has already done it successfully (not just the mentor who makes promises and gives you hope … and then takes your money).
Mentors serve a very important purpose in our goal to get UNstuck and live the life we’re meant to live. The best mentors have been through what you’re going through. They’ve experienced the difficulties, made the mistakes, and found a path to success… the same path that you may be blindly seeking alone when you don’t need to!
The benefit to finding a mentor in the exact area in which you wish to succeed is this: they can put you on the fast track to success. You’ll be able to learn from their mistakes. You’ll be able to take advantage of their tips, tools and resources. You’ll be able to soak in their invaluable advice. And you’ll have a sounding board for those ideas that others may think you’re crazy to even consider.
And the best part… they can help point out where you’re going astray and help you overcome your fears as you step out of your comfort zone!
We only have so much time, energy and money—without guidance, you can find yourself spinning your wheels, and getting more stuck in feelings of frustration and uncertainty. When you invest in a mentor—whether it be time, money or both—your investment will pay for itself tenfold as you begin to live an amazing life!
In what area of your life do you wish to become successful?
Identify three people who have successfully accomplished the same vision and might be perfect as mentors. Be creative in your thinking. You might find them close by!
