Ok, stop! Stop what you are doing! Move over! Be quiet! Yeah, you!
It is time to get real with yourself. You are the reason you do not have success. Yes, you. It is not your circumstances. It is not your lack of education. It is you. It is only you.
Look in the mirror. There you will find the person who is holding you back; there is who is in your way. There is the obstacle to over come. There is why you don’t have what you want. There is why you don’t succeed.
Yes, it is hard to take. Yes, the journey is unfair. Yes, you have a challenge. Yes, yes, yes.
We get in our own way time after time. We justify to ourselves why we do not have time to do something. We invent excuses why things do not happen. We blame others. We point fingers. We do not take responsibility. Everyone of those actions speaks volumes why we don’t have what we want, don’t have the success, don’t have the lifestyle, don’t have the marriage. All of that. We are the problem.
We are also the solution. You hold the keys to your success. Yes, you. Not some guru on television or the Internet. You and only you. You have to do the work. You have to get the experience. You must obtained the skills. A coach can help guide you, show you direction, point out a weakness. A mentor can show you better ways and better avenues. Only you can take the field. Only you can walk down the road. Your success is your business. It does not belong to someone else. It belongs to you.
Reaching success is not a quick trip. It takes dedication and determination. There are pitfalls and problems. There are distractions and detours. The path is not straight. It weaves and forks, zigs and zags. It requires a plan.
From time to time, your determination and dedication will be tested. Obstacles will arise that will seem insurmountable. They will require rethinking and redirection. Having a mentor will greatly help your efforts. The right coaching will teach you need techniques, give you new directions.
Going the distance takes perseverance. Going in the distance in the wrong direction will only result in wasted effort, leading to frustration and emptiness. Get the mentor you need. Get the training you need. Go the distance to Success.
Legacy is the third session in a three part series of training events. The series is named AFL for Action, Freedom and Legacy. It is the place where all the parts come together. It is where the picture becomes complete.
Legacy is a mastermind for Pro U members lead by the Loyal 9 and Team Rashkin held in the Loyal 9 headquarters in Hasbrouck, New Jersey. It is not for the timid. It is for the serious.
Pro U is about community. It is about every member helping every other. It is more than a business opportunity. It is entry into a training and mentoring culture. Do the work and it will lead to more.
It will lead to more opportunity elsewhere. It will lead to creating your own voice, your own business. It will create a new journey for you. It will make the future you want possible.
The opportunity is not a consumable. The product is not a one use and dispose. It is a new way of thinking about yourself. It is a way for you to get the training and direction you need to have your own business. Not one selling Pro U to others. One selling your services to other businesses. You will become a marketer, dedicated to helping others. You will become a leader.
Very few are lucky enough to have been born with all the knowledge, know-how and experience to do whatever they want to the fullest of any human ability. The rest of us need someone to train us. Someone to guide us. Someone to give advice based on experience and testing. Someone to mentor us.
A mentor is more than just a teacher or instructor. A mentor is a trusted guide. A mentor taught Odysseus’ son Telemachus. A mentor is someone close to you. Someone whose advise and teaching you long for. Someone who can be bold and blunt, without it being taken personal. Someone who can correct your quickly and applaud you thoroughly. A congratulations from a mentor is meaningful; deep.
Mentoring is about building trust. The mentor must be trusted by the student. The student must be trusted by the mentor. The mentor must trust that a student will do as they instruct. No whining. No backtalk. Just do it. A student must trust that a mentor will not put them in harms way or beyond their abilities. Otherwise, the student will likely question every instructions. The mentor’s word is absolute and final. The student’s results are beneficial and enlightening.
At 5 Point Management, the M in SMILE stands the Mentoring. We believe that everyone needs a mentor. We believe that everyone needs someone to mentor. By having a mentor, one grows in knowledge. By being a mentor, one grows in understanding. To desire a subject is to learn it. To know a subject is to teach it.
