She had two Mentors Gandhi had a mentor Alexander the Great had Aristotle.
Bill Gates had Paul Allen Warren Buffett had Benjamin Graham there’s something.
Here that most of us are of law I’ve missed out on so I want to share with you some things that I found some specifics that you can do with mentors the first thing the first rule is I call them the mentor.
Rules it’s the law of 33% you should divide up your life and spend 33 percent of your time around people lower than you you can mentor them you can help them and they’ll help you back by making you feel good about yourself right it’s good to know somebody’s doing worse than you right that’s that 30% then you have 33% of people that are on your level these become your friends your peers but the last 33% is what most people forget about those are people.
10 20 years ahead of you they’ll make you feel a little bit uncomfortable but that’s what you want and then remember you don’t want to make the mistake most people make with mentors finding somebody just a little bit better than them you don’t want to be the blind leading the blind so I call it the 10x rule find somebody.
10 times further ahead than you if you want to learn how to grow a million dollar company you have to find somebody who has a ten million dollar company don’t be afraid to go to the top in person mentors are amazing and you can get people like Warren Buffett Bill Gates you’d be surprised my friend heard a talk Frank he’s a director in Hollywood he’s like tired I can believe this I heard your talk.
People and Elon Musk the founder of PayPal the only man no three companies worth two billion dollars he wrote me back and I had lunch with you’d be surprised people remember.
Because people remember their struggle and they’ll reach out and.
Help you to remember everybody wants the good life but not everybody’s willing to follow these rules you must follow these rules next humility one of my favorite stories in business Sam Walton he becomes the richest man in America he starts Walmart it’s big Empire and he takes a trip to Brazil to Sao Paulo and when he’s there.
That’s how Paulo his host family his friends get a call from the police department they’re like come bail out Sam Walden he’s in jail by this time he’s an old he’s an older guy billionaire that they rushed down if you’ve.
Ever seen inside of a Brazilian jail cell it’s not a good place for 70 or 60 year old billionaire right and they asked the police are you crazy are you invent you know arrest him they’re like we didn’t know who he was and we found him crawling around the.
Floors of stores and they asked they asked him one what.
Are you doing and he’s like oh I was just taking a tape measure and measuring how wide the aisles were because I was trying to.
Figure out if these Brazilians knew something that I didn’t know already a billionaire you’d think.
He’d be cocky you see everybody wants the good life but not everybody’s willing to be humble like Sam.
Was you have to be humble next perseverance the media has tricked us they.
