Here's one thing that successful people do that average people don't. This isn't always the case but it's often the case.
Average people don't have mentors nor coaches.
Successful people have mentors and coaches.
For example, I'm a guy. I know nothing about how to shop for clothes for myself. So, I hired a personal shopper, someone who knows how to go into stores and pick out clothes for me that will actually look good on me. Her times costs ~$300/day.
Seems expensive, I know. But, here's the thing: Before I hired her, no one ever commented on my clothes. Now, I get a complement about something I'm wearing almost every single day.
Also, I used to be scared to go into a mall and pick out an outfit. I used to be worried that I'd be spending too much or it would look good on the rack but not on myself, stuff like that.
I'm no longer worried about that. Four times a year I go shopping with my fashion coach, get the clothing I need for that season, and enjoy complements on my shirts, pants, and ties all year long.
Why does this matter? If I have an unexpected meeting with someone (say the CEO of my company, a potential big client, or a person I find really attractive), there's a much better chance they'll like me. Also, I won't have to worry about the outfit I put on.
Anyways, the point of this post is to explain to you the importance of having good coaches and mentors in your life.
If you want to get into even better shape, find a nutrition and/or fitness coach or mentor. If you think you can't afford one, ask a friend. Or visit Meetup.com and find a group to join. Or find someone on Craigslist or Kijiji to trade services with.
If you want to make or save more money, guess what? Yes, money mentors are more expensive than say a fitness mentor, but think about what your financial situation would be in say five years if you had a money mentor.
