👉 Lesson 3: MENTORSHIP
“If you’re going to cross a minefield, follow someone who’s already been across successfully.”
It's easy to get off track but it's hard to get back on.
You need a Model, you need a Mindset, and you need a Mentor.
But not just any Mentor.
A Mentor who can specifically support your specific Model and specific Mindset required for that Model.
One who is a bible believing, Jesus loving, Christian.
The bible says in 2 Cor 6:14:
"Do not be unequally yoked together with a non-believer."
The Amplified version is even stronger.
"Do not be unequally bound together with unbelievers [do not make mismatched alliances with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership can righteousness have with lawlessness? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?"
Choose your mentors with care...
The wrong mentor could put you off track for years.
Back to our diet analogy.
How smart would it be to be on a Keto low carb diet with a Vegan high carb diet Mentor?
It would be frustrating, to say the least.
Solomon taught us in Proverbs 24: 5:
“For by wise counsel you shall make war; and in a multiple of counselors there is safety.”
Seeking godly counsel is one of the keys to wisdom.
If you want to prosper in business, seek counsel from a successful, godly businessperson.
The same goes for marriage, relationships, ministry, or whatever.
Find a godly person who is successful in the area you desire to succeed in and get their advice.
By no means am I saying of myself, “I'm a successful godly businessman," that classification is way above my pay grade.
What I am saying...
Be very careful from whom you receive instruction, counsel, and input.
Today with the internet, any Tom, Jane or Harry can have a voice.
I've been searching for a long time, and it's tough to find successful Christian mentors.
Nowadays, mentors and coaches are a dime a dozen.
And sure, some of them are Christians.
But I'm not interested in working with someone who is an undercover Christian.
If I'm not sure where they stand, I'm not interested.
So find someone with a step by step PROVEN blueprint...
And a mentor...
Who's a professing Christian (proud of their relationship and not an undercover one afraid to be bold)
Then pray like it's up to God and work like it's up to you!
Your path to success won't be a straight line.
