Learn from the Masters who have gone before you.
Knowledge gained through books is valuable. Insight from a mentor who has expertise is priceless.
Mentors are a shortcut to learning. Most of us accept that “experience” is the best teacher. A Mentor has more “experience” in a particular field, whether it be personal growth , small business, or real estate, and we can benefit from the lessons they have already learned.
We do not, however, advocate blindly following a guru; you need to accept total responsibility for your success and results in life. Determine your own path, and go where it leads you. Let Mentors help you with the obstacles along the way.
When we model or copy their actions, attitudes, beliefs, etc., we can save a lot of wasted time and effort. But merely trying to be like someone else isn’t the answer. We are unique, and need to express our purpose through our own individuality.
Learn from a Mentor. Then be a Leader, not a follower.
