What did Albert Einstein, Dr Martin Luther King and Alexander the Great all had in common? Yeah… You’ve guessed it: they all had mentors. Albert Einstein had Max Talmey, Dr Martin Luther King Jr had Benjamin Mays, Alexander the Great had Aristotle, and the list goes on: Bill Gates and Paul Allen had Ed Roberts, Tony Robbins had Jim Rohn, even Sir Isaac Newton said: “If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants”. Almost all of the most successful and influential people who have ever lived on this planet had a role-model; someone who guided them and showed them the right path to follow.

But why are mentors so important?

You should see mentors as being a shortcut to success, because they save you a great deal of time and effort. You see, learning by yourself is the absolute most expensive way to learn as it costs you something you can never get back again: precious time. Life is short, so nobody wants to spend it entirely in just trying to succeed, and mentors can prevent that from happening by teaching you decades of what they’ve learned as well as keeping you from making the same mistakes they’ve made. Being mentored by a successful person also gives you the advantage of gaining the skills and strategies of the smartest and most experienced people on the planet as opposed to learning it theoretically from someone who has no actual experience in real life. As Tony Robbins wrote: “I’ll tell you now that the best strategy in almost any case is to find a role-model, someone who’s already getting the results you want, and then tap into their knowledge,”  and by doing so, you’ll know how they think, what their beliefs are and how they operate in the world, then you can just copy them; that won’t just make you much more efficient in whatever that is you’re trying to do, but it will also raise you to the level of excellence and mastery in the briefest span of time.

How to choose mentors and where to find them:

Now the best mentors you can get are in person mentors, since they can teach you, correct your mistakes and answer your questions, all directly. The most important thing to keep in mind though, when choosing your mentors, is that they must be two to ten steps ahead of you in what you want to achieve. For example, if you want to make a hundred thousand dollars a year, find someone who is making from two hundred thousand to one million dollars a year and get him or her to mentor you. I know it can be a bit uncomfortable to be around people who are so far ahead, but that’s exactly what will get you moving towards improvement and, eventually, success. Don’t be afraid of asking successful people for help and guidance, you might be surprised by how many of them are willing to mentor you if you showed them your commitment and dedication to success.

You can also simply hire a specialized coach who will help you achieve your goals and make sure to keep you on the right track. Books are as well a great source of mentorship because it provides you with the teachings of the smartest and most successful people of all time; people like Mahatma Gandhi, Sam Walton, Stephen Hawking and Socrates, and you can read their biographies to get inspiration and important lessons from their life stories. Following people who inspire you online, watching their videos and taking courses made by successful people also can turbo-charge your learning process therefore your success; like program made by the successful entrepreneur Tai Lopez . The other thing to remember is to keep a mentor in all aspects of life that are important to you like health, business, happiness, and relationships.

Now if you really want to make it in life, then follow the steps of the giants who have gone before you. Life is too short, so make sure to aim high and get some amazing mentors to help you get to where you want to go. And remember what Robert Kiyosaki said: “your mentors in life are important, so choose them wisely”.
