As was once said, a smart person doesn't make the same mistake twice. A wise person doesn't make the mistakes others have already made. Working with mentors is one of the most powerful ways to accelerate your success. How valuable would it be to discover the secrets of success directly from others who have already done what you want to do? Wouldn't it be great to leapfrog over the most common mistakes and avoid common traps and pitfalls? Good mentors can change your life; they've changed mine. If you already have a mentor consider writing them a personal note to say "thanks for making such a difference in my life". If you don't already have a mentor, find one. It's one of the most valuable ways to achieve your greatness.
