men•tor /ˈmenˌtôr,ˈmenˌtər/ noun 1. An experienced and trusted adviser.
What if you could be someone else? Stay with me here, what if you could be Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Albert Einstein, Oprah, Russell Simmons, Beyoncé or Walt Disney for a day, a week or longer? What if you could think like them? How would this change your life? Being able to mirror what they do? Its called Psychological modeling. It’s basically copying or mirroring the behavior of another person to get the same or better results.
This is what we try and teach you here at All Star Motivation. Our opportunity is unique in that if you just mirror what Billy Nolan the president of All Star Motivation does you will achieve the same results or better. Billy and I have spent our lives trying to mentor people to do what we do. The fact is nobody truly mirrors us. I found an article this week written by Thomas Corley and it was 16 traits of mentor. This is where Psychological Modeling or Mirroring is important. You want the person teaching you success and wealth to have certain qualities and he has checks on all 16 of this list.
Thomas Corley –Finding a mentor in life is the fast track to success. In my Rich Habits Study, 93% of the self-made millionaires who accumulated the most wealth in the shortest amount of time said that they had a mentor who taught them what to do and what not to do. A good mentor takes the “risk” out of success.
So, what qualities should you look for in a mentor? A good mentor should have the following 16 qualities:
-They have an infectious positive outlook – Good mentors have a positive, optimistic outlook on life that infects you like a virus.
-They are patient – Good mentors are patient. They understand that the skills and knowledge they are sharing with you will take time to digest.
-They are likeable – You need to like your mentor. A good mentor is someone you like being around.
-They are generous with their time – Good mentors devote time to your development.
-They hold you accountable – Good mentors always circle back with you and make sure you fulfill your role as a mentee. If they ask you to do something, a good mentor will follow-up to make sure you did what they asked you to do.
-They are demanding – Good mentors push you outside your comfort zone. They understand that growth occurs outside the comfort zone.
-They are considerate – Good mentors understand that sometimes life goes wrong and they give you space to deal with life’s problems. They are sympathetic (to a point).
-They are responsive – Good mentors respond to your needs and provide you with the tools and information to help you develop the skills and knowledge to grow.
-They are empathetic – Good mentors understand your pain. Growth is painful and they get it.
-They have good habits – Good mentors have their own set of good habits that they are happy to share with you.
-They are humble – Good mentors check their egos at the door. Their humility creates a comfortable learning environment.
-They are good communicators – Good mentors are able to communicate complex concepts in a language you understand and are in constant communication with you.
-They are process-driven – Good mentors have processes that work and can be learned.
-They are accessible – Good mentors are available. They are never too busy to invest their time in you.
-They are inspiring – Good mentors pump you up, motivate you and inspire you to push yourself.
-They are successful – Good mentors have a proven track record. They are successful in their field.
I really like number 16 because it finalizes what I have been saying in the last 3 News Letters. Billy’s track record of being successful in this field is ridiculous. He has done things in the Perfume game others only talked about. So why aren’t you doing exactly what he does. Why when he tries to help you, you think you know better when you obviously don’t. Why when you were in training you accomplished things like; got a new car, stacked a lot of money, trained a lot of people? The answer is simple, you mirrored what we did so you had positive results. So I ask you, are you mirroring what we do? If not, then you will never do what Billy does. If not, then you will struggle.
Take advantage of the best secret in our business. The immediate access to a road map to success. A path to ever dream you have come true. That is what you get when you use Billy Nolan as a mentor. This is what you will get when you decide to mirror exactly what He does. Until then we will continue to thrive. We will continue to pump out new entrepreneurs into their own business. Maybe one day one of you will join us on this path to success.
