Your Own Mentor Dinner Party

I was asked an interesting question earlier today, and it caused me to stop and think. The question was, if you could invite any six living people to dinner, who would they be?

I went with my first instincts with my list, and here’s who I chose.

The first choice was Bob Proctor. I think primarily because it was a short appearance of his on the Ellen show that first brought The Secret to my attention. From there I’ve been on an insatiable quest for more learning about how I and the universe operates.

The next choice was Will Smith. I’ve always been a fan of his work on TV and in movies, but more than that I would like to pick his brain more about his thoughts on success, and what separates achievers from the rest. Here’s a great clip from one of his better movies that I really love.

My third choice was Tony Robbins. I’ve never attended one of his seminars and workshops despite having been to dozens and dozens of them over the years. He certainly seems to be at the top of the heap in personal development and human potential, so I’d like to spend some time with him to learn more from him.

Next I chose a couple of somewhat controversial figures. One of the first “success” books I read many years ago was “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. Ever since then, I’ve read a number of his books, follow his work online and generally respect his perspective on investing and escaping the rat race. His book “The Rich Dad Prophecy” really opened my eyes to what’s happening in our world, and seeing the world events today just reinforces my respect for his vision.

The last person may not be as well recognized as the others, but he’s certainly gotten my attention the past couple of years. If you’re prone to watching infomercials (and I’m not) perhaps you know him too. His name is Kevin Trudeau, and one of his more popular books is “Natural Cures … They Don’t Want You To Know About” His current work is The Global Information Network (click the banner on the right side of my blog to set up a free affiliate account – use mentoredlife when asked for a referral code), and I’m impressed with the quality of the information they share, and their mission to share secrets formerly reserved for the elite classes with the masses. It’s a mission I have as well, so an opportunity to pick his brain would be fabulous.

Those are my six for now. I’d love to hear your six, and the reasons why in the comment section below.

Do You Use Visualization Tools?

Most of the personal development world recommends some form of visualization practice as part of your personal goal achievement and goal setting process. This can take many forms from meditation, affirmations, creating vision boards and a number of other similar practices.

Do you make visualization part of your routine? About 2 years ago I learned about a product called Mind Movies, which is like a vision board put to video with music. I got a copy and created my own mind movie which I watched virtually every morning and night for over a year. Having the ability to load it onto an Ipod made it easy to take it with me wherever I went. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get the music to work on the Ipod version, so I didn’t get the extra benefit of the audio reinforcement to go with the video.

There have been a few new versions of the Mind Movies program created since then, and they’ve just released version 2.1. The video below is one I created with version 2.0 which was 10 times easier to use than the original version, and I’m sure version 2.1 just improved on that. There are some great videos available to watch from Bob Proctor, Bob Doyle, John Assaraf and Joe Vitale on how visualization can help you achieve your goals faster.

If you want to learn more about how to create your own Mind Movie and start manifesting your dreams today, you can check out the program here. You can download 6 pre-made mind movies and get started right away. And there are over $2300 worth of free bonuses for you when you start creating your own mind movies.

Gratitude is…

If you’ve read Wallace Wattles’ book “The Science of Getting Rich” you may have noticed that the longest chapter in the book was about gratitude. If you listen to many of the big Law of Attraction speakers of today, you’ll hear a similar theme. People from Bob Proctor, to Jack Canfield and so many others all speak about how practicing gratitude, and feeling grateful is the key to getting more of what you want. If you aren’t showing gratitude for the blessings you currently have, then there is no reason for the universe to deliver more to you.

Here’s a good gratitude video I found that I thought you might enjoy.

How do you practice gratitude? In our family we each take turns expressing what we’re grateful for each day before supper. It’s something we’ve done since shortly after our second child was born, and often it is our children now that will remind us we have to say “thanks” before eating when we’re not at home, or out to a restaurant. One of my fondest memories out of this was they day our 2 year old son joined us, and started saying “I’m thank-you for you and you and you” while he pointed at his sister, mother and I. Now we all incorporate this into our routine as well, because above all we’re thankful for each other. It took the wisdom of our youngest child to point that out for us, and for that I’m forever grateful.

Don’t quit too soon.

“Most people give up when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the 1-yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touch down.” Ross Perot
What goals have you missed by quitting too soon? Which ones have you hit because you didn’t quit? A major difference between success and mediocrity is your ability to see something to completion. Successful people set a goal and don’t stop until they’ve achieved it. They don’t take no for an answer, and see failure as simply feedback on something that didn’t work.

It’s when the resistance to continue is the strongest that we have to resolve to push harder. That barrier is often the test to see how bad you want it. If you can recognize it as that, then when you’re feeling that resistance you can turn it around into drive because you know you’re that close to achieving your goals. One of my mentors, Bob Proctor talks about this resistance as the “Terror Barrier”. If you’re willing to push through that terror barrier you will break out of you comfort zone, and that’s when you realize what you’re capable of achieving. If you’re stuck in your comfort zone, you aren’t growing and if you aren’t growing – you’re dying!

I’d love to hear what experiences you’ve had either with pushing through your own terror barriers, or bouncing off of them. Leave your comments in the comment box below, and that way others will be able to learn from your lessons as well.

My Top 5 Lessons from Mentors

The last few years have been an interesting awakening and discovery period for me. I think the catalyst that started my quest was catching a few minutes of the Ellen show when she interviewed Bob Proctor and John Assaraf. They were talking about The Secret (which I had never heard of yet) and the Law of Attraction. Even though I only heard them speak for a few minutes, it caught my attention enough to know that I had to find out more about what they were referring to. I did some online searches a few days later and finally found thesecret.tv website. From there I watched the trailer for the film, and ordered a copy of the DVD.

As soon as it arrived, I took it to work with me and started watching it on my lunch break. I was so amazed by what I was watching, and I couldn’t wait to bring it home and share it with my wife. While I now know there is more to the LOA than just thinking positive thoughts, I am so grateful for that film and the journey it has guided me on. Because of that, I’ve been able to attract some amazing people into my life, leave a toxic work environment, start new socially conscious business that will contribute greatly to society, and to believe in my ability to design my life the way I imagine it to be.

So, lesson 1 was to understand the law of attraction.

Lesson 2, is similar in that I’ve come to understand that our environment has a direct reflection on our results. You will be in all areas of your life, the average of the 5 people you associate most with. Take a minute to think about who it is you spend the most time with. Do they lift you up, or bring you down. If it’s the latter, you may want to start changing that and finding people who not only believe in you, but can also help you achieve your dreams.

Lesson 3 is to write down your goals. Studies show that the most successful people on the planet have clear written goals. The reason so many people never achieve their goals, is because they are only vague wishes, not clearly defined goals. A goal that is not written in a positive, present (as though you’ve already achieved it) and measureable way is simply a wish, and wishes rarely come true. If you really want to accomplish something in your life, take a few minutes to sit down and very clearly write down what you want. Then make it part of your daily activities to do one thing that will move you closer to that goal.

Lesson 4 is to get and stay healthy. I’ve really opened my eyes to the effects of a typical North American diet on our health. Just one interview I listened to with a leading health practitioner spoke about how it will take 25 glasses of water to neutralize the negative effects of a single soft drink of the same size! The sugar is a major problem, and the carbonation actually causes your body to rob calcium from your bones to offset the acidic nature of the ingredients. Compound the negative effect if the drink is diet because aspartame is a poison, and is linked to a large number of diseases growing at epidemic proportions. Obviously this subject alone could fill books, let alone a blog post, so I encourage you to do your own research. Regular exercise and a diet that consists of more green vegetables, fruits and less processed foods will be a great start though.

Lesson 5 is of course learn from mentors. Tony Robbins says “Success leaves clues” and if that’s the case, rather than getting out your treasure map and trying to find the elusive “success” on your own, why not find a mentor who’s already found it? Mentors can take on so many forms from books, and audios to one on one guidance. If you don’t know where to start, pick up a few books about people who’ve achieved whatever it is you want to do. Start where you are, and the path will open up ahead of you to find the next resources you need.

Live a mentored life in all respects, and the universe will support you to achieve any goal you set your mind to and take action towards.
