Mentor-Mentoring pick a part my brain part 2

Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction. 
John C. Crosby 

Each of us needs a good listening ear, a push in the right direction and a brain to pick.  Don’t you agree?  Direction, many of us use some type of navigational system such as MapQuest.  This tool pulls up directions to a particular place.  When we input the information, map populates directions.  Sometimes it is right on target and others times it will lead you the wrong way.  Mentoring is similar.  A mentor pushes you to the right directs.  But, just like the navigational system, what you provide to the mentor will determine whether the right directions are given.

Giving the right directors means you know your objective, goals and strategies.  The mentor will assist you, guide and encourage you.  For example, I’m a Registered Nurse who happens to love Network Marketing.  My goal is to create opportunities for people who are looking for an Internet marketing business.  The strategies I use include advertising, blogging, videos, and quotes.  I pick the brain of my mentor quite often, but I also call just to check in.  I believe this is important.  Checking in to say hello enhances the relationship.
Mentors have a good listening ear.  Mentors are ready to assist your growth.  They are encourager's and take pleasure in watching you succeed.  In nursing mentors and preceptors differ.  Preceptors, train, demonstrate and guide your performance. 

 Preceptors ensure that a nurse is equipped to manage patient care in a particular setting.  Mentors on the other had push and guide the goals you have set up to advance.  For example, I’m interested in decreasing the readmission rate of chronically ill patients with Congestive Heart Failure.  The mentor I have for this area is an advance MSN (Masters of Science in Nursing).  She is guiding and pushing my goals, objectives and strategies.  I’m a MSN student at this time and need mentoring by an expert in the field of nursing.

On the other hand, I also have a mentor for business.  My mentor has over 20 plus years in network marketing, has a listening ear, allows me to pick her brain and advises me in the direction that I have chosen.
Mentors are expert in the field.  Like MapQuest, if the wrong information is imputed then the directions provide just might take you off course.  Strategies organization and plan before meeting your mentor are important.  Let the work will begin to your success.

A recipe for a successful leader

A core promise: Leaders go with or ahead of so as to show the way, to guide. Leaders are responsible and show accountability. A leader is not afraid to answer. Harmony is necessary to bridge gaps between unity and comfort. It produces a coming together. Leaders have the ability to connect by bringing others together colleagues, family and friends, connecting makes you feel apart of something and others.

A leader is sterling conforming to the highest standards. A sense of quality in the work produces and shared with others. Leaders have passion, true caring about other professionals and desire to motivate one another. Respect is an esteem and admiration granted to someone worthy of high regard; consideration given to others. Leaders take ownership and accept responsibilities and are committed to the task.

Morale is important to the teams, there is need of well-being a mutual sense of positive interaction between one another. One of the most important characteristics of a leader is integrity to do the right thing even when no one is watching. Leaders have skills a high degree of training or knowledge within a particular realm, professionalism. Leaders empower grant the authority to make decisions and control one's own destiny.
These core values are the recipe for successful leadership.

Hungry-You got to be hungry

I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.
Les Brown

Hoop of flames will not stop me from taking a running leap with vigor, strength and tenacity.  Let me encourage you today take a leap of faith and run through the inconveniences of life with purpose.  Les Brown one of the greatest motivators stated, “You got to be hungry.”  What are you hungry for today?
I know you awaken this morning and said, “I don’t want to work for anyone else,” I desire my own home-based business, I want to travel the world, only if I had enough money, and time.  These are statements we’ve all made in some shape of form.  What are you hungry for?  If you could change the course of your life, which direction would you travel?

It is important to identify your needs, set a goal and take action, get moving make steps to improve your current situation.  Inconvenience comes every day.The inconvenience of computer crashing, system too slow, cell phone minutes to low, cell phone charges to high, the bank wouldn't cash your check or the check has not arrived yet.  How about the line is too long and I have a meeting.  We could go on with the inconveniences of life but, they are just that inconveniences that temporarily stall our lives.

Les Brown put it the best, put your dreams into action, live your dream, say the dream and then get hungry.  If Bill Gates was not hungry he would not be who he is today, what about Art and Rob Phelps if they did not get hungry to create a business that works on line no one would know about their contribution to online marketing.  Warren Buffet a business magnet. I’m sure you may think of many. What about you?  How are you leaping through the hoops of fire? Are you leaping in fear? Tip toeing to the hoop and peeking into the hoop saying, I’m not ready yet? Taking a running start as fast as you can but then something causes you to stop? Did you put thought to it while running?  How many times do you hear, don’t go through that hoop it is not for you.  Let me leave you with this Get Hungry and leap with vigor, strength and tenacity

Happy Cinco de Mayo                                               

Cinco de Mayo Spanish for “fifth of May” is a celebration held on May 5.  It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).  The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.  In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin.  Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day-the most important nation patriotic holiday in Mexico which is actually celebrated on September 16th (,

Cinco de Mayo has come to represent a celebration of the contributions that Mexican Americans and all Hispanics have made to America.
Joe Baca.

Reading about this war on Mexico I discovered it begins with the issue of money and debt.  A debt to be owed to the states unable to pay put Mexico in to battle.  They were destroyed by the USA and it left them in financial distress.   The French wanted payment as well so they thrust forward in to battle with Mexico.  The intent at the time was to divide the USA.  Mexico’s leader sent his troops into battle and sent the French running off the coast.  This was a victory and they celebrate the defeat since 1862.

If you think about it our own personal wars are usually related around debt.   It seems like a never ending battle.  What is so wonderful about this battle, our beliefs that it will come to an end. Implementing strategic planning and taking care of one debt at a time will decrease your debt and point you to freedom.  ”Debt Free,” Isn’t this great news? I sure thank so.  There are many things to celebrate today and it begins with Freedom.

Happy Cinco de Mayo wishing each and every one who celebrates with a purpose to acknowledge the accomplishment of the masses who have contributed to your existence in a special way today just might be the road to a debt free life.

Painting-A picture of self-esteem

                                                     Earl Nightingale The Essence of Success

Painting-A picture of self-esteem removing a restrictive attitude
The picture you paint for yourself is it true.  Are you forming a mental image of yourself when you worry about yourself, failure and concentrate on failure you will fail and get sick what has happened you have concentrated on the failure so intently?
1.      Forgive others with no strings attached forgive every person clean the slate absolutely clean the slate for your sake and your own peace of mind. We don’t hurt others when we hold grudges against others it can lead to serious illness. If you can-not take this first step you can forget the rest you have not grown up yet.
2.      Forgive yourself see  yourself with kind eyes try to completely rid yourself of all the embarrassment you’ve suffered the pain you’ve had in the past and mistakes you’ve made in the past wipe clean the slate  look in the mirror and practice this blame does not help it is a destructive emotion see your-self at your best.
3.      See yourself at your best as Doctor Maxwell Moss put it, we can start the day with confidence or frustration take your pick. The intelligent thing to do is to pick confidence if at all possible there are bad days but it is better to start your day with confidence mood than a mood of frustration.
4.      Keep up with yourself don’t worry about what others are doing or what others have done or have. keep your pace it is different than the pace of others it is faster than some and slower than others forget the Jones and don’t fill guilty for moving ahead of some of your contemporary the person who deliberately   hold himself down to a slower pace just to be with the gang is a fool. Live your own life.  Don’t be too concern about how others are living their lives, live your life. Know thyself.  

Doctor Maxwell Moss and Earl Nightingale discussed self-esteem method and practicing techniques that will improve our attitude. Developing self-destructive behaviors can be changed.  We are not all the most intelligent, and smart we have weakness but they should not direct what we think or fell about ourselves.  We have deep reservoirs of talent develop them.  If you spend your life mimicking the talents of others you will not live your own life.
