There I met a 17 year old guy who would become a big brother to me for a short while. His name was Tony. He as it turned out was in New York because he was running from some very dangerous people in Florida who killed his friend. Tony was a “metal-head,” head-banger type but was a good natured person and took a liking to me. He protected me from other kids who were in gangs and were too rough and dangerous for me to handle at time. He taught me how to fight, how to think on streets, and same thing my Grandpa taught me.
No, I won’t tell yet.
That wasn’t end of my street life but, that’s where we’ll fast forward into my twenties.
My mind had been made up since I was a child that deep down I really wanted my own business. So I went out and did what any normal kid would do. Go to college right!
Well after a few semesters, I realized that I was really in for long frustrating hours of studying things that I did not want to know. So while still in school and working full time, I started to self educate myself with self improvement books and business books.
Needless to say, I got hooked! Paycheck after paycheck I would buy and read these books, online and offline. Wow I really knew my stuff I would think. Then I would look at successful businesses and say, “Wow I still have a lot of learning to do.”
So I started out on my quest to conquer internet. Or so I thought.
Again, I purchased and read many e-books, reports, software and services and began to build a small income online.
Thousands of dollars and some successful clients later, I had very little to show for it other than all of money I made others and vast library of knowledge in my head. (I do have a pretty big head -- ;-D )
Then one day through world famous internet marketer Jo Han Mok, I met Mike Litman, then Dave Lakhani & Steve Watts. Mike and Dave showed me what I was doing wrong, what I needed to know and how to apply it. Most importantly they showed me what they had learned so that I didn’t have to make same mistakes.
If you fast forward to today you will see that I’m now helping change lives of thousands of people around world through my newsletter and coaching system and I’m well on my way to creating millions in revenue!
So what’s 80/20 Success Secret?
Finding Mentors or Coaches and learning everything you can from them.
Instead of investing tons of money in books and programs, invest in a mentor and you WILL get most results!
Remember very few actions generate most results. Instead of taking 1,000 steps and many years to achieve your desired results, you’re only taking one step and very little time to get your results this way. You’re paying them to learn from their mistakes and successes.
No book or program can offer you that!
So when you’re ready to leap towards success and break through your obstacles, seek out your mentor(s) and be ready for anything!
