Someone Else's Guru Need Not Be Your Guru

1 replies

I think there's a hidden rule that "If a lot of people
accept some one as their guru, so should you"

Don't Fall In This Trap.

In Sanskrit, Gu means darkness(ignorance) Ru means light(knowledge)
so guru means the one who dispels the darkness of ignorance.

You can consider some one as your guru if he/she really lead
you from darkness to light.

Always believe your gut feeling when choosing your guru/mentor.

There is no rule that you should have only one guru. Most probably you
need more than one person to help you to succeed as an internet marketer.

Here's my checklist to choose a guru

1) Be very clear about your business model
2) Choose someone who's already an expert in that business model
3) Make sure that YOU really like his/her way of teaching
4) It's best if there's a one to one coaching available

Always take action upon whatever you learn and remember the saying
"Experience is the best teacher"

Hope it helps

    That is a great point, thread starter.

    You are absolutely correct.

    Just because somebody picks a certain guru and did well with that guru does not necessarily mean that that guru is for everybody.

    There are different kinds of people with different risk appetite levels.

    There are different people with different skills.

    There are gurus that can cater to certain people and who probably cannot do much for other types of people.

    If you were to ask me, I would say just do away with gurus altogether.

    You can easily spend thousands of dollars on a guru and have very little to show for it.

    If I were in that position, I would rather just spend that money on my own research so I can come up with my own solutions.

    The truth is all the information you need to make money online is available on the Internet.

    The only value a guru, coach or mentor brings to the table is that they direct your attention to the right resources.

    Sure, they may have a strategy, but it is probably not going to be much different from a strategy that you can learn on your own.

    Sure, you probably have to go through a lot of trial and error, but guess what, that is just part of life.

    In fact, it will make you stronger because you are able to see your errors and learn from them.

    A check list or a blueprint can only take you so far.

    Personally, I would steer clear of gurus altogether.
