I know you’ve probably heard this 1,000 times before, but I want to reiterate how essential mentors are to the success of your career. Not only are they your sounding board for all of your big ideas, but they are also the people who offer you expert advice, and can connect you with other’s who can help you accomplish your goals.
Mentor’s are the plug!!
Now, I’m sure that you’ve also heard that if you don’t have a mentor you should look for them in your immediate network of friends and family, but what if you don’t know anyone who you feel can help you transcend to the next level in life?
**In comes YouTube**
Now, hear me out about this. I know that you cannot compare the relationship that you would have between yourself and someone that you could call and even meet with sometimes, to videos of a person that you may not ever meet.
But, there is a method to my madness.
YouTube is home to millions of videos, and it houses great content. There are super dope/super helpful interviews from some of the greatest leaders of our time who are giving us the game on how to reach their level, and even higher.
Now, I think that you should continue in your efforts of trying to reach out to someone who can be more interactive with you, but in the mean time you should build up your mental arsenal with tips from some of these leaders.
Check out the video above, for some great advice from leaders such as: Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, Sergey Brin, and Biz Stone.
