One of the greatest things you can do for your development in your life is to get a mentor. A mentor is someone that has been where you are and has achieved what you want to achieve – they are just further ahead in the process.
The most amazing thing that a mentor can do for you is to jump you 3 steps ahead. Think of this like going down a special tube in Mario where you jump 3 levels ahead. They accelerate your learning process and help you get to your goal much quicker because they have been through the struggles, they have seen the problems and walls you are about come to, and they know how to get over them.
Having a mentor is invaluable and some of them can be a bone crusher to you because the force you to do the hard things, but remember that they are doing it because they have your best interest in mind.
Don’t be scared to reach out to a mentor – send them an email, start connecting with them, send them a gift in the mail, get noticed, and it will be invaluable. It will take some time to get connected especially if you are looking to get connected to someone that is very successful, but if you are persistent and show them you are motivated and determined without being overly annoying – they can help you in your goals a significant amount.
