That is a big joke. Why?
Well, let me ask you this?
How do you know who is the right person and how do you know what is the right opportunity?
There are tons of amazing people and opportunities, so it is impossible to truly know the perfect one for you.
So, instead of looking for the perfect opportunity or person, you need to look to yourself as the answer to your problems.
You must rely on yourself for your success and believe that you have the power and creativity to be successful.
When you jump on an opportunity you need to look at is a resource that will help you achieve your goals faster but understand that you can achieve your goals with or without the opportunity.
For example, If I wanted to learn how to do SEO (search engine optimization) I may hire an expert to mentor me.
However, I don't look at the expert or coach as the answer to my success, I just look at them as someone who can help me get to my goal faster, because I will reach my goal with o without them.
I'm self-reliant but I also understand that if you have the money to invest into achieving a goal efficiently (or faster) then it is always going to be an intelligent decision.
Michael Jordan was always an amazing and talented basketball player but behind-the-scenes he would work with a guy named Tim Grover to help him improve his game.
The reality is, Michael Jordan was and would continue to achieve his goals without Tim Grover, but Michael understood that Tim Grover would help him achieve his goals faster and more efficiently.
Do you see what I'm saying?
Don't look at a person or an opportunity as your solution to success, instead, look at them as way to help you achieve your goals faster.
You must rely on yourself to make the opportunity to work.
Don't expect your coach or opportunity to just magically create success, you still have to control the outcome by making intelligent decisions continuing to take action and using the
resources around you to achieve your goals efficiently.
