Written by Rasheed Ali

Continued from page 1

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 fromrepparttar other kids who were in gangs and were too rough and dangerous for me to handle atrepparttar 146048 time. He taught me how to fight, how to think onrepparttar 146049 streets, andrepparttar 146050 same thing my Grandpa taught me.

No, I won’t tell yet.

That wasn’trepparttar 146051 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 conquerrepparttar 146052 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 ofrepparttar 146053 money I made others andrepparttar 146054 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 makerepparttar 146055 same mistakes.

If you fast forward to today you will see that I’m now helping changerepparttar 146056 lives of thousands of people aroundrepparttar 146057 world through my newsletter and coaching system and I’m well on my way to creating millions in revenue!

So what’srepparttar 146058 80/20 Success Secret?

It is….

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 getrepparttar 146059 most results!

Remember very few actions generaterepparttar 146060 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!

actuality, you'rerepparttar only one you have to reckon with here. ALLOW ME TO ILLUSTRATE... Several years ago, I bought myself a piano. This was a glorious treat for me. I was living in my own place, no family, no roomies, no boyfriends, nobody but me and my beloved piano. (And a couple of pussy cats but they didn't care how I played as long as I keptrepparttar 146001 food coming!) Now I could play to my heart's content without any unwanted listeners lurking about. However, every time I sat down atrepparttar 146002 keyboard,repparttar 146003 room "filled up" with this invisible audience, ghostly faces ready to wince at any sour note or fumbled chord. I was playing for my ego, trying to winrepparttar 146004 approval of these phantom ears floating about my music room. And of course,repparttar 146005 true music got lost inrepparttar 146006 deal. Is this anything like what happens to you when you try something new? Are there invisible critics watching over your shoulder, interfering with your concentration? It doesn't seem to matter what type of new activity we wish to undertake. It could be something as simple as learning a new software program or something as ambitious as tackling a bold new approach to earning a fabulous living. Is it possible thatrepparttar 146007 actual goal has gotten lost inrepparttar 146008 melee of ego andrepparttar 146009 fear of not getting it rightrepparttar 146010 first time? Doesrepparttar 146011 idea of not having a completed blueprint of your journey prevent you from takingrepparttar 146012 first step? BRAVO FOR BLUNDERS Here's a technique, seemingly simple and silly, but very effective justrepparttar 146013 same in combatting this tendency to stay stuck in our well-worn rut. When you become aware of any mistake or misstep you have made, respond to it in this radically different way. PRAISE yourself for discovering something that did not work. That's right, be glad! Acknowledge that you are now one step closer to findingrepparttar 146014 solution you are after. Yessss! Now forrepparttar 146015 really important part. Be certain to acknowledge to yourself, preferably out loud, that by makingrepparttar 146016 mistake at hand you did NOT suddenly become stupid, puny or otherwise diminished. Make note ofrepparttar 146017 fact that you are every bit as solid a person as you were beforerepparttar 146018 mistake, and that you are now a tad wiser besides. That's it. But do it. The only way you'll ever learn to feel differently about yourself is to start feeling differently about yourself. You and only you control what you think. Think well of yourself.
