I don’t want you to feel like you’re limited to one person when you’re looking for a mentor. There are tons of educators and speakers out there you can learn from simply by following them on social media or listening to their talks/podcasts. But if you’re really serious about learning from a mentor, ask yourselves these 4 questions first before you decide.
If you’re listening to someone and their core values don’t align with yours, it’s going to cause so much conflict. There will be a lot of things that they do that just won’t match with you. A lot of times this question is swept under the rug just because this mentor is popular and everyone loves them so you wanna love them too. But make sure that you align with them, otherwise it’s not going to work.
In this industry, a lot of times people will just start coaching without even achieving the success they want you to have. So how will they know what it is like and what’s best for you if they haven’t experienced it themselves? I just can’t take someone’s advice seriously when they haven’t experienced what I have in this industry. When they haven’t been at the ground floor of what it’s like to build this business, they just won’t understand.
If someone’s coaching other network marketers like how to build a team and selling, these are the things they should have first-hand experience with. So they actually KNOW what it’s like and give valuable advice. If you’re listening to a mentor who hasn’t done it themselves, they won’t know how to truly support you in that area. If you really want a mentor that will be able to guide you all the way based on their experience, this is a really important question to ponder on.
There are a lot of great mentors out there that have a lot of great advice. But if that person is helping you in areas that you don’t really need help with, then that person might not be the right mentor for you. They may just be a great person to connect with but not as a mentor. Knowing which areas you struggle with and being able to identify if that person has the tools and resources to mentor and support you in that area is so important.
A lot of mentors may have the tools, but are they showing you why that tool is gonna work? Are they showing you why you gotta use this and that to solve your problems? If they’re telling you “hey, you should do this with your team.” are they also explaining why you need to do it? The why is gonna give you the confidence. You’re still going to feel insecure if you don’t know why you’re doing these things for your biz. You’re still gonna doubt; but if you know the reasoning behind it, you’ll learn how to be more efficient on your own. You’re gonna start to pick up how your mentor thinks and the logical reasoning behind their strategies.
A mentor doesn’t have to be someone who you’re working with one on one. A mentor is simply someone that has the tools and resources to guide you in your journey. You can have a lot of mentors that you simply follow on social media and consume their content from there. It’s not always someone you have to enroll and pay for.
Certainty leads to so much more belief. I want you to be able to take this journey from a place of belief and not from uncertainty. That’s only gonna make you show up from a place of insecurity.
Having said that, am I the perfect fit for you?! Yay! If I am then…
