Have you ever wanted to get a mentor but were too afraid to ask for help? Well, there are very good reasons to get a mentor but the most important reason is that this individual is the person who can help you to access the most important principle to your success – EXCELLENCE.
There is a single key to prosperity that will give you everything you ever wanted in life. This one key to prosperity will give you riches beyond your imagination, love without end, and perfect health well past the average age of mankind.
This key is not a secret, as just about every motivational speaker and business coach has presented the concept over and over again to a deaf audience. In fact, you yourself have probably been given this key many times in your life.
But have you listened? Have you taken the information to heart and made it an ongoing part of your life? Have you improved your skills to the point where ‘excellence’ is an apt description?
For that is the key secret to which all great people owe their greatness. To be excellent in something, whatever it is, is to be the one most sought after in that area.
Get A Mentor Who Will Help You Reach Excellence
Artists are a dime a dozen, but a great artist can command a premium for his/her artwork. A single work of great art can be sold for millions whereas a work of ‘average’ art is lucky to fetch $100.
In my field of photography, this is also the case. An average photographer who sells wedding photography can earn about $800 from an average wedding. A great photographer doing the same job can earn over $10,000, doing almost no additional work.
Musicians are the same in this regard. Average musicians barely scrape by, while great musicians earn $100,000 a night performing to sell-out crowds.
In business, the same key applies. An average accountant will earn $30,000 per year whereas a great accountant can earn over $300,000.
An average website may earn only $1000 per month, but a great website can earn over $10,000 per month.
An average car sells for about $15,000, but a great car sells for over $250,000.
The lesson here is that the better you are at what you do, the more money you’ll make. And this key works in other areas besides just the financial.
A person with ‘average’ relationship skills will obtain a certain amount of happiness in their relationships. Someone with ‘excellent’ relationship skills will obtain much more happiness from the relationships they create.
An average cook will derive a certain amount of satisfaction from their work. A great cook will obtain much more enjoyment from the foods they prepare.
Someone with average skills in obtaining peace of mind will find that peace eluding them often. With skills which could be considered ‘excellent’, peace of mind would be a much more common experience.
Becoming excellent in what you do will reward you far beyond money, and will also reward you with love, happiness, peace of mind, and anything else you can imagine.
How to become excellent? That is the inevitable question that comes up next. That too is no secret, yet is something very few people want to acknowledge.
A never-ending COMMITTMENT to being the best you can be.
This means practice. It means striving to do your best in every situation. It means being open to grow, adapt, and improve yourself in a thousand different ways.
For this, you’ll want to seek out those considered excellent in the area that you wish to develop your own excellence.
A writer will want to consult with excellent writers.
A musician will want to rehearse with excellent musicians.
A teacher will want to learn from excellent teachers.
A salesperson will want to learn from excellent salespeople.
Someone wanting a cleaner house will want to learn from someone who is an excellent housekeeper.
Someone wanting more peace of mind will want to learn from someone who has an abundance of it.
Someone wanting a better relationship will want to learn from others who have great relationships.
And once you find a mentor, spend as much time with them as you can. The more time you spend with them, the more you will internalize the beliefs which guide their decisions and actions, which, in turn, produce their results.
Becoming excellent takes time. It takes work. But the rewards are so out of proportion to the effort involved that you’d think you’ve found a gold mine.
