Whose Voice Will You Listen To?
In my journey thru life, I have had many mentors. Others I have mentioned before and here are just a few more to show you how easy it is to seek out the right mentors for whatever stage you are in and how if this is applied, it will help you to achieve your life dream.
My heart desire is to be able to earn income from home while raising our young family. After working in the City of London for 16 years, which I enjoyed. I came to a conclusion that except you are pursuing your passion or doing something you truly love. You will always be searching for something else. “Your goals choose your mentors”.
A FEW INFLUENTIAL MENTORS IN MY LIFE
Dave Ramsey – Financial Peace University
One of the very first investments we made into our marriage was purchasing a DVD series of Financial Peace University. One of the top reasons couple divorce is due to lack of joint financial vision and education. It’s important to start your marriage by having a unify vision for your finances.
We sat through the entire series by ourselves and we have avoided getting into financial debt because we have the same vision.
I didn’t have parents that gave me sound financial advice and that is no excuse for not seeking one for our marriage. Quit making excuses and get some mentoring.
Robert Kiyosaki – Rich Dad, Poor Dad.
A large part of Kiyosaki’s teachings focus on generating passive income by means of investment opportunities, such as real estate and businesses. Kiyosaki defines “assets” as things that generate cash inflow, such as rental properties or businesses—and “liabilities” as things that use cash on, such as houses, cars, and so on.
After reading Rich Dad Poor Dad, it opened my eyes in a new way and it gave me the confidence to basically go out and apply the concepts. I was studying accounting at the time and your home was defined as an asset, while Kiyosaki teaches that you house is not an asset. For the first time I realized that our homes was not an asset but a liability, this totally changed my way of thinking.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad changed the way I think about money, investment, cash-flow and why you should have multiple streams of income. I was able to put his teachings into practice; with lessons gleaned from the book and Robert Kiyosaki’s voice ringing in my head I was off to view my first rental property. Before I could say, “Bob is your uncle” I had bought and rented out my first rental property and started generating cash-flow.
I was able to do it a few times over, building a little nest egg for myself and feeling great in the process.
Who would you have to mentor you? A rich man or a poor man?
Faith that is without proofs is fake
Toni Turner – A Beginner’s Guide To Day-Trading Online
Over 2 years ago my dream of earning an income from home became a reality. By investing in a beginner’s guide, with my research and my trusted mentor the Holy Spirit I placed my first trade and before you know it I was making 5 figures. Right from our dinning room table, while changing dirty diapers.
This book played a vital part in walking me thru the entire stages of trading online. I am not an expert in this field and as for a novice; I am not doing too badly. I don’t intend to work outside our home now and in the near future.
“No man is capable of self-improvement if he sees no other model but himself”. – Conrado Generoso
The Bible is the world’s best seller and the No.1 book that I can’t do without. It goes with me everywhere. There are different versions and translations and I have acquired quite a few of them. Find the best version for yourself.
The bible is our guide as Christians and it can be applied to every area of our lives, only if we take the time to read it. The bible cannot be read like any other book, it will take the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to help you see the revelation in the Word.
The great thing about the bible are the major players; they are imperfect ordinary people that God called and transformed their lives to do extra ordinary things. This tells me that I qualify for the same transformation, great news! What about you?
The Holy Spirit
My secret weapon, my silent helper that is never wrong. It takes time and willingness to fellowship with Him to understands how He speaks to you. We have a mentor who knows all things and his name is the Holy Spirit. He guides me in all my risky ventures and my husband is able to trust and support me in my pursuit of them. God gave us a helper that helps us in our discernments; I won’t embark on anything without His guidance. By far the Holy Spirit is my ultimate secret weapon, the invisible Helper that is mostly ignored even by myself. He is also free to all who are willing to open up their hearts!
My Pastor – Lucie Needham
Lucie Needham has taught me more about being a woman of God than anyone else. Just by watching her up close, she is a wife, mother, and a teacher, heads a daycare and is full of the love of God. In the last 5 years I have had the pleasure to be part of their ministry and also serve under their leadership. I have learnt far more from her about how to walk the love walk, how to adorn my outward appearance, complementing and supporting my husband in ministry. I am still learning even much more.
We don’t do “lunch” or “hang out” because her time is precious. I love it just that way, it helps me to be able to honor her and I am able to learn much more from her just by watching. I have learnt to know my place and position; it helps not to get things confused.

There is someone in your life today that will play a key role in your life; you will have to ask them to mentor you to get you there. Let us put our pride aside and match forward to accomplish all that we can in 2011.
Is there something you are passionate about but don’t know how to go about it? Then it’s time for you to seek out a mentor. There are some life lessons you will never be taught at school and only thru a mentor or spending time reading books or seeking right kind of knowledge apt for your needs.
While stock trading and real estate is not for everyone. Discover what your passion is and pursue it this year. There is nothing new under the earth and you can always find someone who has done it before.
There is no excuse for not pursuing your passion this year, once you figure it out; seek out someone to mentor you and find a simple book to help guide you. “ A mind is a terrible thing to waste”
A misconception about mentors that I used to have and that has since changed is. You don’t have to be friends with your mentors, it helps but it is not necessary. You as the protégée are there to learn all you can from them. Use your time wisely and learn all you can; value your mentor time as precious. They won’t always be in your life forever, enjoy your season with them.
Don’t seek mentorship if you are not ready to put your pride aside and are not teachable. Time is far to precious to be wasted on those that are not ready!
Have you discover what your passion is yet?
How do you intend to go about it this year?
“You will be the same person you are now five years from today, except for the people you meet and the books you read.”
