“You are not the hero of your story.” - Brooke (3:03)
In every great story, there is a hero who rises up to change the world with their unique set of superpowers. While the superhero takes the spotlight, behind the scenes you will almost always find a mentor or guide. The mentor is the one who helps shape the superhero, giving them sage wisdom and helping them find the tools necessary to save the day. Do you have someone in your life to help you get to the next level of your business? Many network marketers would name their upline as their mentor. However, your behavior directly affects their income, and there can be a tendency to offer a formulaic process that worked for the upline but may leave you exhausted and fighting burnout. Finding a mentor outside of your business is a crucial step in ensuring that you find business strategies that fit your unique set of gifts and skills.
“Finding a mentor is about more than getting to the top. It is about impacting, empowering, and changing the lives of the people who chose to be under your leadership.” - NiCole (22:48)
Ideally, a mentor will make a great deal of effort to invest into you as an individual and an entrepreneur. However, in the world of mentors, not every service is equal. It’s vital to vet the mentor and make sure that it will be a worthwhile investment.
There are a few markers to help you establish whether or not a mentor will be a valuable asset to your marketing journey.
“Inauthenticity is exhausting, no matter the task. When you are authentic, you unleash your superpowers to the world to bring value and help people. It’s not exhausting pouring into people and seeing their lives change. That’s what authentic influencers do.” - Brooke (21:17)
Your challenge for this week is to find the best mentor for the current stage of your business. Finding a mentor is an investment, we know. However, you aren’t the only one who will be impacted by this investment. Everyone you work with - upline, recruits, and customers - will reap the benefits. When you are able to find someone to support you in your authentic way of doing business, you will have the ability to release your superpowers to the world, bring value, and help people. When you act authentically, you will find yourself empowered and energized.
