A few years ago I did a Mastermind weekend for people in my coaching program. I came down from the elevator to find a group of them gathered around a table, filling out order forms for my five-book prosperity series. It was enough to warm the heart of any author.
I was apoplectic! If you would have told me that even one person who was attending my multi-millionaire mindset weekend hadn’t read all five of the books already, I would never have believed you.
I guess I expected that people in my coaching program would treat their mentor and coaching relationships that same way I do.
I remember going to at least three or four seminars where I heard a speaker and decided that they were the real deal in what they were speaking about. In each case, I went to the back of the room, gave my credit card and asked them to send me everything they had. In each case, the answer was similar.
It was something like, “We’ve got a lot of stuff!” Or, “Don’t you want to know how much it is?” But the price didn’t concern me. Because I knew that the information would add so much value to my life personally, or I could use that information to make millions of dollars.
As it should be to you.
Now in defense of my weekend participants, some of them felt that since they were coming to the States anyway, they would wait to pick up the books here, and save some of the onerous duties and shipping. I understand. But I don’t agree.
Those books came out two months before that event. What you can earn in a couple months with what you learn from those books is so great that the cost of the books themselves, shipping, and any duty is simply inconsequential.
Of course it’s important that you use some discernment with the people you select to be your mentors and coaches. But once you’ve selected one, you need to get everything you can from them.
If I was struggling and I knew a guy who went from a dishwasher to a multi-millionaire wrote some books on how he did it—I would order then the minute I heard about them, and pay for overnight shipping.
What about you? How do you approach these situations? Do you talk a good game but not really follow the advice of your mentors? Or do you search out people that have done what you want to achieve, and then follow their advice?
