Some of life’s journeys are harder than others.
And as a business leader, chances are you’re the kind of person who takes the road less traveled.
If you’re on that path, I’m proud of you. It’s not for the weak.
There’ll be A LOT of times where you’ll find yourself at a crossroads.
But here’s a thought for you, brave soul….
What if I told you there was an easier way to get to where you want to go – no matter how hard the journey?
What’s the secret?
The answer is going to shock you, I promise….
Are you ready?
Invest in your map.
Maps are drawn by people who have been there.
They’ve made the journey, maybe even a few times.
And they’ve marked every cliff, every broken bridge, all the peaks, and places where there’s quicksand.
Right now you may be thinking, “I’m independent. I do everything myself! I don’t need a map!”
Trust me, I understand where you’re coming from.
Running a business can sometimes feel like a lone, treacherous journey.
You may feel that the only way to go through your unique business journey is on your own.
And a map written by someone else can feel like a questionable shortcut…
But here’s the thing…
Maps don’t force you on any one path. They just light the way.
Just like a good mentor.
They’ve “been there and done that” and have the knowledge and insight to help you understand the right path to your destination.
Finding your navigator is an entirely different journey.
Can you think of someone, right now, who can help you light the way?
In the past 19 years, I’ve spoken to thousands of teams and organizations, all struggling with similar problems…and I’ve taken those learnings and condensed them for the good of any persons smart enough to pick them up.
It may be the purposeful way to connect with a mentor that you need right now.
This month, I want you to think about allowing yourself to become vulnerable.
Because it is only through opening up that you can accept generosity.
Your mentor is out there, waiting to help you with a lantern and map in hand.
