I was called a "Mentor" by a Facebook friend of mine recently and it really got me thinking. What is a mentor? Am I really a mentor to someone? One of the biggest misconceptions we all have as humans is of the definition of a mentor. Many of us have portrayed our own version of what a mentor should be in our own interpretation.
By definition, integrity is the quality of being honest and having moral principles. More uprightness. It is the state of being whole and undivided. Recently I was speaking with a client of mine regarding integrity. The conversation had taken a stem from something that we were discussing and suddenly we found ourselves talking about the importance of integrity. We talked about honesty, vulnerability, transparency, accountability, and being direct. I also brought up the fact that integrity has a price.
The Coronavirus pandemic is now on a global level. A vast majority of the United States is also in quarantine forcing many people to strike boredom. Yes, unfortunately! In addition to boredom a lot of people are presented with limitations. Are they really limitations though or opportunities for thinking outside of the box?
The internet will give you all sorts of things but it won’t give you this. It’s called integrity. You heard me! There’s a huge lack of integrity on the internet and from the looks of things, it’s not coming back any time soon. People are wrapped up in politics. Self-proclaimed gurus are cheating everyone by misrepresenting themselves. Everyone claims to be a Jack-Of-All-Trades but master of none. Being honest, having strong moral principles, and doing the right thing is practically non-existent on the internet. There is only a small portion of people that uphold to such integrity and those are becoming even harder to find.
Being resistant to temptations will make you stronger, more resilient and unstoppable. I’m a prime example of it and I want to share with you why you should consider it. This past weekend I was tested. Truly tested in the sense of how resistant I would be towards a temptation. About a year ago I finally made the executive decision that enough was enough. After 20+ years of being inactive and not taking my health and nutrition more seriously, I decided that it was time to change that.
Time is money! Bidding for more time is something that we all strive towards. In life and in business. Would you like to find out how you can get more time out of each day? As a father, husband, and entrepreneur, one of the things that I personally struggle with on a daily basis is time. It s extremely challenging to multitask all of these roles and on certain days it feels like there is no productivity whatsoever. I have tried all sorts of different hags in order to maximize my time each day but a lot of them have failed.
In a recent meeting, I was told that I'm a "Good Guy!". Being me, I don't take compliments very well due to some horrible past experiences I had in my teen years but I nodded and acknowledged the compliment. In this article I elaborate more on what that really means and how it can help you. Man or woman, principally it can apply to anyone and doing so will change your life and business.
Are you ready to throw in the towel or keep going? I know what you're thinking. I've been there and know the feelings and emotions that are circling in your mind.
As an entrepreneur, you need to know about pain tolerance. It is such a crucial component that determines your level of resilience from someone else. Checkout the latest episode of my podcast The RAS Project with Chris ‘Kubby’
