Charles Lalonde feels so strongly about the need for mentors he has written a mentor eBook that is free for clients of his Success and Wealth System eCourse. To commemorate January Mentor Month all visitors to the website http://www.mentors4free.com will also be able to download the ebook for free.
"Anyone who truly wants to break out and do something extraordinary that they would not do on their own initiative, better have a mentor/coach and they better be a great one," he said.
If anyone doubts Mr. Lalonde's quote it is suggested they investigate all the top success icons in any field and they will find all of them had mentors and coaches. It is reported, for instance, that Michael Jordon at the peak of his career had 11 coaches.
A mentor is "an experienced and trusted friend and prudent advisor." A coach is "a private tutor; one who instructs or trains a performer or a team of performers."
Mr. Lalonde has defined two types of Mentors - Life and Area Specific Mentors. A Life Mentor, he says, “is one whose success system or methodology is universal and the foundation for success in every area of a person's life.”
Mr. Lalonde points out that finding a Life Mentor whose success system is universal to everyone, no matter his or her education, talents or social status, is extremely difficult. This is why Napoleon Hill, author of "Think & Grow Rich," is so unique and the ideal Life Mentor because his success system is the foundation for every outstanding achievement and fortune ever made.
An Area Specific Mentor is a mentor, often referred to as a "coach," whose knowledge and expertise is in one or a few areas of life. For example, a head coach of a National Football League (NFL) team possesses knowledge, skills and a system encompassing all aspects of the game. However, he utilizes coaches skilled in the different areas of the game such as offense, defense and special teams.”
Below are seven areas in life where a person can benefit from Area Specific Mentors/Coaches:
Yes, but does anyone really need a mentor?
Mr. Lalonde says to answer that question look at the facts:
No one person will live long enough to make all of the mistakes. In simple terms, mentors speed the learning process and are the reason for advancements in technology and the standards of living we enjoy today. Lalonde also points out that the last half-century has seen very little change statistically.
Using the oft-quoted post-war study published by the Social Security Administration and Denvey's Economic Tables, less than 5% of the population at that time retired wealthy or financially independent. Sadly, a study done in March 2000 by the American Economic Review reported that the gap between "the haves" and "have nots" is widening.
Grade-Point-Score averages, according to studies, have barely been maintained over the last 50 years. Moreover, in professional sports, with all the advancements in mind and physical development, one would think that the number of super stars being produced would have increased dramatically; however, as a percentage, it remains virtually unchanged.
A unique feature of his book is the Mentor Profile Worksheet that allows the reader to score a mentor candidate they are considering. It is also a way for them to develop and measure how well they're doing as a mentor. The eBook "The Two Greatest Life Mentors Of All Time" is receiving rave reviews.
Yes, we all need good Life Mentors and Coaches at every stage of our lives. But be careful, Mr. Lalonde concludes, “to choose those who walk the talk and demonstrate and exemplify the life qualities and achievements in their own life.”
