How to Find a Mentor

Hey, it’s Friday and I hope you’re celebrating your freedom—TGIF—Thank God I’m Free! You’ve been killing it all week, don’t stop because others will be going out to bars, clubs, the beach and wasting time when they haven’t reached a level of success to give them that kind of free time. If you’re going to the clubs when your bank account isn’t overflowing with cheddar you need a mentor. But hey, there are more life coaches on the planet than smartphones. So how do you find the right one? First off when you ask for someone to be your mentor you have to be ready. You have to have clarity. The mentor has to have more horsepower than you do. If they roll up in a Corolla, you gotta roll out! How to Find a Mentor Grant Cardone Strategy of the Week You need to surround yourself with people who can mentor you. Build your power base out of people who can mentor you and when you get there you have to know some things: 1. You have to want help 2. You have to be able to receive help 3. You must get rid of non-supporters Your friends and your partner in life have to be on the same page. Look, what are you trying to accomplish? You have to look for the right mentor once you are ready. You have to immerse yourself in their information and their material. If you haven’t read every book they have written, watched every stream they have put out and done the homework they won’t want to mentor you—and you won’t even know if you actually want them as your mentor. Immersing yourself in their material also lets you know if they are current and relevant. And if someone is truly successful, they won’t be available all the time. If they are available all the time, they might not be the person you want mentorship from. Make sure you know these warnings before you immerse yourself: 1. Get rid of mentors in your life before you look for a new one 2. Get your information from one place, not multiple 3. Get something stable. Stop mixing practices. 4. Pick someone that is more successful than where you want to go Once you know you want a mentor, you have gotten rid of non-supports in your life and you are ready to immerse yourself you need to take the 7-Day Challenge. 7-Day Challenge: #7daychallenge Take one week with now media. No newspaper, no TV, no Fox, no CNN, no Netflix, no porn—nothing. You can watch one short movie a day, but make sure it has no ads in it. Don’t follow Twitter, don’t follow Facebook, stay off Google+. And if you want to take it further you can watch only content from—it is the only place you will find where you will get all business, all entrepreneurship, all motivation and all training—no political agenda, no drama, no destruction or war—just business. All we’re telling you here is how to expand. Subscribe to our network today. If you can take the #7daychallenge you might be ready for a mentor. If you can’t block out all of that noise from social media, TV, newspapers and your life you won’t be able to focus on learning from a mentor. A real mentor doesn’t want your money—they want you to know their material, know what they are about, and then you must be 100% sure you want them as a mentor. Get rid of the mentors you have and commit to getting good data. Take the #7daychallenge and figure out what you want. Figure out what you want from life and what you can give. Read my material, get my books, and figure out if you want me as your mentor. Hey, what’s the one thing in the last 24-hours that you did which was a complete waste of time? As a mentor, the first thing I’ll tell you is to drop out anything that is a waste of time. The way to manage time is not to manage it, but to create more time and the way to create more time is to drop things that are wasting it. If you have people you need to mentor on your team, or people who are asking you for mentorship, you must first figure out some kind of mechanism to be able to filter people before you give them the attention. Will you listen to the audio? Will you read a book? Will you go through daily exercises on Cardone University? If someone isn’t willing to commit to dingo those things, I don’t need to mentor them. Make a similar mechanism to filter those seeking mentorship from you. Let me know in the comments below who you want as a mentor and why. Be great, GC

    Grant , hands down I want you as my mentor . I have been following you now for more then a year and you keep me inspired and excited and the transformation that my life is heading in , so without any doubt your the mentor for me…

    I would love to have you, Grant Cardone, as my mentor! You seem to be the only person who believes like me, doing things at “EXTREME” levels aka 10X! I love your attitude about business and how you can dominate in ANY market. I love that you don’t allow what people say or believe to dictate your results and what you believe for yourself. As a Christian, I believe I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Phil. 4:13) and God is able to do exceeding, abundantly above all that I can ask or think, according to the power that works in me!! (Eph. 3:20) In my opinion, anyone who doesn’t work at 10X levels is only living in mediocrity, and I don’t believe that’s what God wants for our lives. However, ultimately it’s our decision! With all that being said, Grant Cardone, you’re my pick for a mentor!

  • Johnny Lionseed

    Awesome content, Uncle G! Thank you for being in our lives, man. You’re doing God’s work.

    I bet it’s a typo for “doing”

  • Ian Hunter

    Thanks for the always great advice! I honestly don’t think anything I’ve done in these last 24 hours was a complete waste of time. Although I have been known to waste time. I will definitely be more conscious of my time than I used to, especially with my life in a transition.

  • Dave Lambert

    Grant, thanks again for another awesome and pertinent article. One thing: What does “commit to dingo those things” mean?

  • Jon Melander

    Hi Grant
    What does “dingo” those things mean?

  • Jamelle Sanders

    Awesome piece Grant! You are my mentor and you continue to mentor me daily.

  • Jeff Beal

    Great read Grant. Yes, I’m ready (just tweeted), and have mostly cut every media source out of my daily life. In fact, my morning and evening drives (each 1 hour), I spend listening to you on Meerkat and Periscope. Or if you’re not there, then I find one of you videos on GCTV and play it. I’ve listened to Sell or Be Sold, and 10X Rule many times over, plus watched the 10X Superlife webinar a few weeks ago. And, I so committed to the 10X phenomenon that my license plate on my truck is “10XLIFE”.

    My wife and I are completely on the same page, we watched that Meerkat as well, were actually looking for an apartment to buy, move into and manage.

    I’ve been looking for a mentor but just can’t find anyone like you. I’d blow it out of the water if you were my mentor. Tell me what to do or where to start.

    I have my main flow as VP of Marketing where I was headhunted, and now working on my second flow as a Realtor. I actually emailed you yesterday about finding apartments for you in Atlanta and you replied back. I’m on the hunt now.

    Looking forward to it Grant.

    Hey GC I can take the challenge and you already know I want you to mentor me I have made no secret of that. Is that a possibility? I know that my life and my business could benefit greatly. I have all your books and webinars. I listen to them everyday as does my family. 10X lifestyle.

  • Noel Rupanga

    why i have read about you i love your drive and push. More importantly i bet you haven’t mentored someone from Zimbabwe whose seen only one totalitarian president and government for the past 33 years. Just google Zimbabwe its impossible to make it without political affiliation.
