How do you get a mentor? Well, check this out. Did you know that Mark Zuckerberg, the dude who founded Facebook, his mentor was Steve Jobs? And did you know that Bill Gates’s mentor was Warren Buffet? He attributes the billions of dollars he’s made to a lot of the advice and mentorship he got from Warren Buffet.

So, check this out, if you want to get anywhere in business, if you want to get anywhere in life to the next level, you need to be leaning on mentors and coaches.

Identify Who Can Help You

I want to share two ways to do that in this video. So number one, you have to understand that if you are where you are and you want to get somewhere else, you can’t do it alone. I mean, you could but that’s what people who struggle do. They try to figure out how to repair their own roof. Smart people figure out, “Hey, I’ve got a hole in my roof. Who can I get to help me fix the roof?” So you want to be the smart person not the stupid struggling person.

So we’re going to think about, “Okay, who can help us?” Now, there’s two ways of doing this. Number one is you find somebody who’s already done what you want to do, and you resonate with them not just based on the results but based on their core values.

For instance, if you want to make a lot of money and you’re looking for a mentor whose made a lot of money, there’s a lot of different ways you can make a lot of money. So you have to be able to resonate with the person’s principles, philosophy, core values and make sure that there’s a good match there because you want to be doing things that they would recommend. If they’re recommending something that just doesn’t even feel good to you, that’s probably not going to be a good match. So you want to find a mentor, number one, that obviously has produced results that resonates with you core value-wise. That’s the first step.

How To Approach This Person

Now, once you’ve identified that person, there’s two ways of doing this. Number one, you approach them with a giving hand and say, “Listen, I’m in a position where I have really not much to offer in terms of finances but I would do whatever you want me to do to support you.” It’s not about, “Hey, can I pick your brain and you give me a bunch of free stuff?” No, that’s never going to work. Successful people don’t have time to waste with people who are just looking to pick their brain. As you always lead with a helping hand just like this guy is leading with a helping hand walking into my room. What’s up? Just finishing a video. I’m talking about finding a mentor. So this is Oscar, he’s my oldest son. Oh my God, you’re so big now. Okay.

So the second way we can find a mentor is to pay for one. And quite honestly, I think that is the most effective way to get results you want. Because when you pay, you pay attention. And the more you invest, the more you’re invested. So I would recommend that even if it’s a financial stretch, that you put on a credit card and you do whatever it takes to get results. That was the first way I started. I put $18,000 in a credit card that I really didn’t have but I made it work. So if you want a mentor, those are the two ways you can get one.

I hope this finds you well. Let me know what you think is the best way to find a mentor based on our discussion here in the comments below.
