Finding coaches and mentors is an important mission, that you will no doubt have over the course of your home business career. It is critical that you choose them wisely. Your mentor is someone to whom you'll be committing a great deal of time and attention, and who ideally will take a vested interest in you as well. The process of selecting a mentor begins, first of all, with a clear-sighted view of what your business goals are. Selecting a mentor is not just a matter of finding someone you like or feel comfortable identifying with. Make sure that the mentor you choose has a genuine history of success. Do not look to superficially successful people as role models for achievement. In addition to selecting your coach based on their ability to achieve goals similar to your own, choose a mentor who in the process has overcome some of the same obstacles you are facing. Ideally, a mentor really represents both what you want to become and what you want to do. Seeing your mentor today is like seeing what you intend to be. The coach has arrived at or been to places similar to where you want to go. Select a mentor with whom you can actually spend time and with whom you enjoy having conversations and exploring ideas. When you discover someone with whom you feel a special affinity, make an effort to obtain everything that person has written or said. Really become a student of that person's work and life. Don't just admire him or her, genuinely learn from them. One of the most interesting aspects of selecting a mentor is the fact that one can rarely separate people's tangible achievements from the qualities of their character. More than their bank accounts or their real estate holdings, role models prove by the conduct of their lives that they're worth emulating. When you seek support and feedback, be sure it is from a person who is truly interested in seeing you succeed. Don't seek feedback from fair-weather friends, competitive peers, or any person who doesn't have your best interests at heart. Neutral doesn't count. Get feedback from someone who is on your side, who will be objective and honest with you. Ultimately, nobody else is responsible for your life but you. Nobody else is accountable for your actions but you. Therefore, nobody's expectations for you and opinions about you are as important as your own. So make sure your opinions take precedence in your mind over all others, and when you do need to consult with someone, think very carefully before you choose exactly who. Your long term success in your network marketing business depends upon it.
