Get a Mentor and achieve amazing success

A mentor is a person who has acquired sufficient experience in a particular area and is capable of guiding an individual in achieving the same level of success that he/she has acquired. Every ambitious entrepreneur cannot do without the help of a mentor in achieving the desired goal and objective in life.


Why do we need a mentor?

They provide you with the right information to succeed

A critical factor on the way to achieving success is the ability to possess the right information. Access to the right information can accelerate our quest for achieving lasting success. A mentor is in a better position to provide the needed information.

To enable us achieve success without stress

The pathway to success is often dotted with one form of obstacle or the other. The function of a mentor is to show us the various pitfalls on our journey towards attaining success. Without the assistance of an experience individual, we may go through endless stress in quest to achieve success. It is like asking someone who has been to a particular place for direction.

A mentor will greatly reduce the possibility of Failure

The reason why so many people fail in life, is because they do not posses the right information to succeed in life. Failure is greatly reduced when you have a mentor by your side to aid and guide you. So individual believe they can succeed on their own without the help of a mentor, but they find out through the hard way that they are absolutely wrong. Success becomes a possibility when someone who has succeeded is there to show you the way to success.

Encouragement in times of Failure

Failure can never be ruled out as we aspire to succeed in life. One thing we must however realize is that when we have a mentor by our side, they are a great source of encouragement in times of failure. They have tasted success and failure, and their experience we go a long way to keep us focused and encouraged.

It helps to speed up your learning process

Learning the ropes in any business is not an easy task, as we may be faced with one challenge or the other. One of the benefits of having a mentor is that the leaning process is quickened. It is like taking you by the hands and showing you the fundamental ingredients on your way to succeeding in your chosen business.

It will save us from unnecessary Financial expenditure

When we decide to go the full stretch without the aid of a mentor, we may incur some unnecessary financial expenses which can be avoided. Mentors are more like financial advisors, because they help us in the initial stage of our business plan and indirectly save us from making unprofitable expenses.

They help us make the right choices

The decision we make in life can ultimately determine our success or failure rate. The ability to make the right choice can be made a lot easier with the assistance of a mentor. A wrong decision can have negative implication on the attainment of your set goals and objectives.

Ignore the haters

Ignore the haters

Someone once described haters as “people who whisper your success, but broadcast your failure”. They are always there no matter how you try to shake them off. Don’t even attempt to please them, because the more you do, the more they would keep hating on you.

Those who aren’t successful in life, don’t have issues with haters, because they are already down. The focus is always on those who aspire to achieve their dreams and goals in life. The more successful you are in life, the more the hate.

Eight years ago, when I bought my first call, not all my friends were happy with me. Some secretly envied me and with envy came hatred. It got worse when I started making real progress in my career.

How I dealt with haters

I focused on those who are happy to have me around and ignored the haters. This has worked quite well for me, because the more I ignore them, the quicker they disappeared. They realized that I wasn’t ready to take their hate seriously, and so they gave up hating on me.

Don’t get distracted

It is easier to get distracted when people say hurtful words about us. A young lady who was in an abusive relationship and had grown to hate herself shared her experience. “Each day was like hell on earth. I tried all I could to please him, but the more I did, the more he hated me. I felt I was not good enough. At a point, I had to break up with him, when the abuse was affecting me emotionally.

Those were the most difficult periods of my life. I became overweight, as I wasn’t watching my diet anymore. When I left Dave, I did all I could to gain back my confidence. It was a real struggle because I had almost lost everything. My self-worth was all gone. I had zero self-confidence and I was standing at the very edge of a mental breakdown.

Relocating to a new city and finding a new job gave me a fresh lease of life. It was like a heavy burden had been lifted off my fragile shoulder. For once I was getting my groove back and I loved it. The bad energy was all gone and I was able to make new friends.

Two years after, I fell in love with someone whom I refer to as my sunshine. He erased all the hate toxins that David had deposited in me. I realized that life always gives us a second chance to become who we truly want to become in life. Love triumphed over hate and I was the happiest soul that ever lived”

Never pay evil with evil

There is always the temptation to hate those who hate you. Unfortunately, that may not be the right approach. Like Martin Luther, King Jnr said: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that

We must always find a way to forgive those who hate without reason. Love them and always find a place in your heart to forgive them. Hopefully, they would see a reason to stop hating and start loving.

Get Inspired by hate

Some call them haters, but I would prefer to call them motivators. Let the actions of the few that hate you push you to greater heights. Keep using the stone of hate thrown at you, to build a platform that will inspire you towards your goals in life.

On the 14th of October 2019, Bulgaria hosted England in a Euro 2020 Qualifier. The match was almost marred with monkey chants each time England winger Raheem Sterling was on the ball. Raheem refused to allow racial abuse to weigh him down. It rather motivated him to put in his best performance in the color of England. He went ahead to score a brace, as England thumped Bulgaria 6-0.

Failure is not the end of your story

Failure is not the end of your story

We all have experienced setbacks in life, businesses, careers, relationships in one way or another. Some people are depressed right now because they gave their best to something and in the end, it failed.

The only thing going through their mind is that they have done the best they could therefore nothing else can be done and attempting such thing again will only be a waste of time and energy accompanied by another set of heartbreaks that will result in depression once again.

The failure you experience is the beginning of your success story. Nothing good comes easy in life. Things that carry great substance are not cheap to come by. Why then do we easily give up?

When you fail, have a positive mindset towards that situation. Failure allows you to do it better, the opportunity to know how best to do it when you get there again. Remember that, you must not fall before you rise but if you fail, make use of the opportunity to get better.

Jack Ma, the former CEO of Alibaba Group, failed several times before becoming a billionaire. He is one of the richest men in China. He failed at almost everything he attempted from education to career to entrepreneurship.

He failed his middle school examination thrice, got into Hangzhou Normal University in his third attempt, all his ten admission attempt to Harvard University were rejected. He was unable to get a job after graduating from university.

Jack applied for thirty different jobs and got rejected by all and his first two business ventures collapsed. In an interview at the Davos world economic forum, he said ” when KFC came to my city, twenty-four people went for the job. Twenty-three people were accepted I was the only guy who was rejected.” However, that did not deter him from visualizing and founding Alibaba.

Nobody in this world chooses to fail but everyone tastes the bitter pill at some point in their lives. Success comes through rapidly fixing our mistakes rather than getting things right the first time. Every failure is not a winner, but every winner is the output of several failed experiences that culminated in success.

Failure serves as a mirror at each end of our life. It reveals our weakness, strengths, and helps in demonstrating ourselves by strengthing our effects. As Einstein said, ” just because a fish cannot climb a tree doesn’t mean its not smart.” The end is not when you fail, it is when you quit. Never lose faith. Never lose hope and never give up!!!

Your success in life depends on what you see

Success in life is a function of what we are capable of seeing. What you see has a lot of roles to play in your decision-making process. It is all about the mindset. Some always see opportunities even when others are seeing things differently.

It is the way their mind is wired. On the other hand, some individuals are always seeing challenges. They never see anything good in what others are doing. In their mind, they are always thinking about the failure rates rather than the success rates of any idea.

Someone once gave an illustration of how inventors reason. While someone was building the airplane, an inventor with a mind that was always thinking of failure was busy designing a parachute. The concept of the parachute came from the mindset of failure. The possibility of the airplane engine failure in midair.

Some individuals will even go to the extent of rejecting opportunities because the opportunities are clothed in the form of challenges. What we must realize is that amid challenges, lies amazing opportunities. It all depends on what you see.

Someone once shared the funny story of how he missed the opportunity to lift himself out of poverty when he rejected an opportunity to create an unending income stream because all he was thinking about was how to get a job.

Two friends once visited India and they both saw little kids walking on barefoot. One of them saw extreme poverty while the other saw an opportunity. Two years later, the one who saw an opportunity came back to India and established one of the biggest footwear companies. 

The difference between both friends was simple. One had a success mentality, while the other one who was seeing poverty, had a failure mentality. What you see determines how far you can excel in life. See beyond the challenges or barriers. There are opportunities all around us begging to be exploited. 

Success can only be seen with the eyes that have been programmed for success. It is not a physical thing. It is deeper than the physical. That is why some individuals may be looking at plastic waste and be wondering why people keep polluting the environment with plastic.

Another fellow will see the plastic with an eye of success and will be thinking of how to convert plastic waste to wealth. It is all about having insight. Not everyone who has an eye can see.

Some are financially blind to opportunity and can never see the opportunity to make wealth even if these opportunities are placed right in front of their eyes. It has to do with hindsight, not just having sights!

Seven Amazing Secrets Life Has Taught Me

Seven Amazing Secrets Life Has Taught Me

Life secrets are seen in the simple things of life. As I walked through the windy pathway of life, there are some hard lessons I have been forced to encounter directly or indirectly. These lessons have made me more mature, stronger, and better equipped to face the challenges of life. I am delighted to share them with readers, with the hope that it would be a source of encouragement and inspiration to those who are down.

Happiness is a decision

No matter what one goes through in life, always make up your mind to be happy. Happiness is a decision that starts from the inside and radiates outside. Never you give room for sorrow or sadness because life is too precious to be wasted. Life comes with sunshine and roses. It also comes with floods and pains. The most beautiful thing about life itself is the gift of life. Make a choice today to live a happy life and see how beautiful you’ll become.

There is no permanent friend

I have had the unique opportunity of meeting people I mistook to be friends. Shared all I had with them and in the end, all I got was betrayal and heartbreak. I have been made to learn this lesson the hard way because I took so many things for granted. Some individuals are friends who become friends based on interest. When things are rosy, they become so close. When things become rough, they enter into ghost mode and vanish into thin air.

Live each day at a time

One of the reasons why some individuals suffer from anxiety is the burden they carry on their lean shoulders. They keep thinking of what the future holds for them and add it to the problem of yesterday even when they are still struggling to make ends meet.

Life has taught me to live each day at a time, without worrying about what to eat, drink, or put on. Anxiety has not been known to have solved any problem. Live each day to the fullest and stop killing yourself with worry and anxiety.

Quality over quantity

When I got a hold of this wonderful secret earlier this year, the first thing I did was to cut off some unproductive friendship. These friends were not motivating me towards my goal in life, and I discovered that the more friends I had, the more complicated it was for me to achieve success in life.

The secret is in the quality of people you associate with, not the quantity. Two quality friends can help transform you from your present level into your dream life. Avoid mixing up with the crowd and identify quality friends who have similar goals and aspirations. This is the most precious secret I uncovered this year.

I can be anything that I set my mind to be

I have always loved writing and helping people achieve their dreams and aspiration. When I discovered these gifts were inside of me, the urge to work towards utilizing my full potential became apparent. Today, I am glad to announce that I have started seeing some of the fruits of my labor. I get emails and remarks about how positive my articles have blessed lives.  I’ve received messages that have left me in tears. It is like a dream come true.

I am exactly what I think I am

Whenever I am down, I daily confess positive affirmation to myself. Keep telling myself that I am a success not a failure. If I confess positive, my mindset will be programmed to accept positive thoughts and ideas. This will ultimately have a wonderful effect on my life. This is an ancient secret that can be positively or negatively activated. Your thoughts must be tuned to the right channel to receive positive ideas.

Don’t allow others to devalue you

You are too valuable and precious to be brushed aside. I cannot be intimidated by circumstances or individuals. The value I place on myself is what the world will appreciate and nobody can devalue or look down on me without my permission.

There is always a price tag attached to everything under the face of the earth. The price tag is determined by the owner of the product or goods. We must not allow anyone to take us for granted. You are priceless, inestimable in value, and beautiful!
