Why you need a Mentor – Walk your Talk

My mentor reminded me of something this week…

People think once you are successful you don’t need a mentor or a coach but exactly the opposite is the case. You want me to walk my talk, don’t you? Why would you use me as a coach or a mentor if I don’t use one or as it is more than one? Because I am already there? No, remember the journey is the destination and there is always room for improvement. I could not be a personal growth coach if I would not strive to grow myself every single day. At the moment I have 2 mentors and 2 coaches in different areas of my life. You can do the same or take an older one like me (blush) that has experience in many areas.

And let’s talk about another misconception and that is fear is weakness. This is a big myth! Most people think that admitting their fear somehow makes them weak or unsuccessful. On this I agree with my mentor …. this is total baloney.

Here’s his advice on this one:

“I feel fear regularly…especially when I’m in the midst of creating a lot of cool, new stuff. When you step outside of the norms in business and life, expect some fear. Just don’t let it stop you. The best thing to do is to gently call yourself out on it and more importantly, call a friend or your coach.

The secret is to share your fear from a neutral place instead of feaking out and believing your fearful thoughts.

A philosophy that serves me well is the idea that every “failure” offers an opportunity to learn and grow. In fact, the Chinese symbol for “crisis” also represents “opportunity”, isn’t that interesting?

When something goes wrong or doesn’t unfold according to plan, rather than view it as a failure and get caught up in feeling bad or sorry for yourself, look for the lesson and take action acordingly.

Here’s what I mean…

Rather than continue to moan and groan and feel frustrated with the negative reaction re-focus on your goals and dreams and use your learning to do it better next time. Because there will be a next time, won’t there? And for those you need someone by your side that has been there and done it.

To your success

Do you know that I am going to be speaking at the Festival of Enlightenment in June in Colorado? This is going to be the biggest Festival of its kind – ever! 7 full days and nights of inspiration, motivation, transformation and some amazing musical acts. You really don’t want to miss this.

The reason for writing to you today is that they have just announced a fantastic Valentine’s Day offer! And what could be a more loving gift than an investment in your and your loved ones soul’s journey?

So if you missed the chance to get two tickets for a mere $100 (donation) in December, here is the last chance to get this incredible offer… go to www.festivalofenlightenment.com

The donation tickets are a special block of tickets and are limited to first come first served… when they’re gone they’re gone so I recommend you get yours immediately! As soon as the regular ticket sales start this offer will be gone forever.

Check out the website at www.festivalofenlightenment.com to see the latest line up of speakers and performers. I am one of them!!!

This is going to be the most energetic gathering of positive like minded people and could easily be THE catalyst for global transformation.

The organizers made sure that all the speakers and performers who will be there actually ‘Walk their Talk’ and are donating their time to your transformation and world change.That means the speakers actually speak for F*R*E*E to keep prices as low as possible but as this is a very large event regular pricing will be 777 US$ after Feb. 14th or whenever this special offer is sold out.
One of our staunch supporters said this about the Festival: “There comes a time in each of our lives when enough pieces of our cosmic jigsaw puzzle come together and in a few moments all of the universe opens up to reveal all that ever was, is and ever will be.” Gaspar Magistar

Please join me at this magnificent event to celebrate your talents and creativity, to embody the highest aspects of humanity and to restore harmony on our beautiful, living planet and within the universe.

See you in June. Make sure to come up and introduce yourself. I will be there for the whole week.

Love and Blessings
