Use Mentors

Most people are content to acquire information and knowledge through experience. While experience might be a lasting way to learn, it’s also tends to have the slowest learning curve. Champions are different. They work smarter instead of harder. The have coaches and mentors to help them speed up the learning process. Mentors and coaches will speed up the process exponentially. I’ve heard it said that the secret to success is to “copy genius.”

The school of hard knocks takes a long time to get there and can be much more frustrating. Top performers get where they want to be by learning from people who have already reached some of the levels they want to get to. Corporations have Board of Directors, individuals have mentor teams. Mentor teams help guide, teach, advise, and encourage individuals to think bigger and reach higher than they normally would by themselves. Most of the time the mentors have either “been there, done that” or they have specialized knowledge that will help you get the assistance you need. Mentors will also help raise the performer’s awareness and expectations.

Good mentors will constantly push and drive performers out of their comfort zone. A good mentor team will accelerate the growth for the performer at a much faster speed than not having a mentor team. In the end game it still comes down to you to go out and make it happen.

“You know, you do need mentors, but in the end, you really just need to believe in yourself.”–Diana Ross
