This is what wakes me up in the mornings – reflective feedback from my mentees and clients:
My first encounter with my mentor was surprising. I expected a strict formal lecture about life and goals, how to make goals and keeping them. Contrary to that it was thought provoking, and eye opening. Her level of focus and prioritizing revealed how they are required steps in achieving life goals however a vision, mission and values are required for that. When I left, I had a renewed zeal and hope for my Present and Future and that I have the power to change it. I am looking forward to working with my mentor.
One important take away from her vision board and positive notes in all the rooms in her house is to be a [cheerleader] for yourself and these help you through the frustrations of life. I look forward to have her walk with me and celebrate achievements in my career, my finances, personal branding and my relationships over the next 6 months.
Who are your cheerleaders in your life?
Who do you spend most of your time with?
How do you cheer yourself along each day?
What mechanisms do you have in place to do so?
Jim Rohn said that you are the average of the 5 people you spend most of your time with, another said: show me your friends and I will show you your future; some research reveals that we will never earn too much more than what our average friends earn…
Where are you on the spectrum of the people you surround yourself with?
How aligned are these environments to your life vision?
