Want To Get Faster Results? Get Many Mentors
Yuli Azarch | November 27, 2017 | No Comments on Want To Get Faster Results? Get Many Mentors
Getting fast results in life. Isn’t this what we all want?
If you are listening to my podcast I assume you definitely want to get results quicker than others. One of the things that helped me to get results at a higher speed is to get as many mentors as I can. They showed me the way and taught me what to do in order to get results much, much faster. Study success, implement all the things that can benefit you, and while you are on that road remember to keep your authenticity like the famous Jim Rohn said:
“Be a student, do not be a follower.”
Lessons from this episode:
- Get mentors
- Be A Student, Don’t Be A Follower
- My E-Commerce Building Example
- You Don’t Need To Know Your Mentors Personally
As a 27-year old who runs two companies, each making millions of dollars in revenue a year, and travels the world, my life could be considered better than your average 27-year old person out there.
However, let me be straight with you; I couldn’t have done this on my own. What I did to get faster results was to get as many mentors as possible.
The biggest mentor in my life was Tony Robbins. If you haven’t heard from him, he’s one of the most important figures in personal development in the world. He is a BIG mentor in my life.
Actually, around six years ago I was in a really rough spot. I was doing really bad, didn’t have any self-confidence, or money; my life was pretty shitty. That changed when a friend in the Israeli army gave me a cassette.
The tape had Tony Robbins “Personal Power” program.
My army friend told me “You have to do the tasks he’s giving you.” At the time, I remember it was something like going and doing two actions you really need to do, and, let me tell you, it was really hard for me to do.
At that time, wasn’t into personal development and I didn’t have any mentors until I heard about Tony Robbins.
I’ve gone to many of his seminars, and I really recommend you to do it. Many personal and professional transformations of mine are because of Tony’s teachings. His audios, seminars, his tricks. Everything has a great value.
But after listening to Tony Robbins for many years and being able to get faster results in my life, I’ve come to disagree with some of his teachings. It sounds tough, right?
Be a Student, Don’t Be A Follower
I think this quote comes from Jim Rohn, and it holds a great truth.
In my opinion, this quote means you shouldn’t take everything you hear from a person you’re learning from. Instead, take what makes sense to you and keep it.
The rest, throw it away. If something is good and makes sense, apply it to your life.
I really love this sentence because you can study from many people, not from just one person.
That’s why I think that one of the best ways to get faster results in your life is to find someone who has had similar results to those you want to get and copy what they’re doing.
Success leaves clues. If you want to be healthy, find a person who is healthy and imitate it. You want to be a kickass athlete and run marathons? Get an athlete mentor who has already done it.
If you want to create a, let’s say, e-commerce, you need to get a mentor who has had one. The same applies to relationships and pretty much every aspect of your life and personal development.
Just like you wouldn’t ask a depressed person for the secret of happiness, you wouldn’t want to look for a mentor that’s not successful at what it does or getting results. You want to get faster results; you want to learn from them and consume their content.
My E-Commerce Building Example
For instance, you already know that, two years ago, I started a successful Amazon business. Being a student of Tony, I learned different things and tried different coaching styles, but I noticed they were not into the e-commerce or Amazon business, and if they weren’t they wouldn’t help me get faster results.
Tony Robbins is great, and all, but listening to him wasn’t going to help me build my Amazon business. And that’s where I realized it’s not about getting one mentor; it’s about getting as many mentors as you can.
To build my Amazon business, I started looking for mentors in the e-commerce area, specifically mentors running Amazon business that made over a million dollars in revenue. I learned from them, their mindset, their tricks, and what they’re doing.
It really helped my business, and I got faster results. The thing is I got more than one mentor. Don’t just learn from one person. Get as many as you can and see what they’re doing.
The thing is, there are many paths to success, and it wouldn’t hurt you to get advice from as many mentors as you want because you are the average of the five people you spend your time with.
Also, if you’re a student, you will keep what makes sense to you and let the rest go. Don’t study from just one person or you’ll become too fixed in your thought because nobody knows about everything.
It sounds like a really simple concept: find someone who is successful at what you want to do and imitate it. But, the sad part is that most people don’t fucking do it.
Do it. Start a goal and pursue it. In my case, when I want something, I find as many mentors as possible and consume content from bloggers, books, podcasts, and events that help me get faster results.
You Don’t Need To Know Your Mentors Personally
Nowadays it’s really easy to find mentors, and you don’t have to fly to remote places and go to a person’s cave to find your mentor. People can mentor you without them even knowing. People put information all over the internet and in books for you to consume it.
Of course, if you have mentors who can coach you physically in these areas, great. It’s always better to have physical contact, but don’t worry if you can’t. The internet has many great ways for you to find what you’re looking for.
For me, for instance, podcasts are a great way of consuming information. I listen to around 15 to 20 podcasts each week, all from different subjects. I also like blogs, and every time I have a goal, I find the people who could help me achieve it.
Last Words and Key Takeaways
- Any person who inspires you can be a mentor; you don’t need to know them personally
- You need different mentors for different things
- In a nutshell: more mentors = faster results.
- Don’t be afraid of changing mentors, this will keep your mind sharp and your ideas fresh
