Honestly, I'll probably look back on these days and realize that they were part of the tipping point.
I have often found that conferences, workshops, seminars and the like are a great catalyst for motivating me to change gear or broaden my perspective. But if you are also like me and live far away from any major cities [East London, South Africa is not exactly a hot spot] And add to this a full time job and 2 small kids, that gives you very little margin to attend such functions.
Enter the Internet and its wonderful opportunities
I recently signed up for Michael Hyatt's online webinar, The Influence & Impact Summit. And I must admit that I've been blown away with how cool it has been to enter into Hyatt's world of friends who are successful business people, best selling authors and leaders in their industry.
I have always thought his tag line as "Your Virtual Mentor" was a good one and with this Summit he takes the position as a virtual mentor to new heights. Giving us great insights on creating a platform, introducing us to his influential friends and even going as far as opening up and interviewing his lovely wife of 37 years.
The highlight for me
Was definitely the great line-up of speakers but top of my list has got to be his interview with John Maxwell. I've been a fan of his for many years and I always find it insightful when he is interviewed. Michael's questions were very thoughtful and thought provoking.
What I also found really great was the positive attitude and willingness to share that each of the speakers presented.
There is not much time but you might be able to catch a few of these interviews while they are still up. Or you can catch Michael's latest launch, How to skyrocket your impact.
If you are really looking to make an impact in the world around you and achieve a higher level of success in your life, then finding great mentors is essential.
And as the saying goes: "When the student is ready, the teacher appears."
So the question is: Are you ready?
