Who's Your Favorite Mentor In Self Improvement?

52 replies
I was wondering who your favorite mentor / author/ coach, or even book / course is in the self improvement niche, and why?

Is it because their personality is similar to yours? (quiet, or extremely energetic and loud), or is it because the topics they teach resonate with your beliefs or a certain concept, etc.

P.S. They do not have to be commercial household names such as Deepak Chopra or Tony Robbins etc.

Looking forward to your responses.

    I like Tony Robbins for his concepts but also Brian Tracy for his variety since Brian hits upon a lot of issues that are relevant to many of us.

    I started off with Tony Robbins, then went into Brian Tracy's 21 Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires. Used to listen to in 20 times a day. Nowadays I follow Eben Pagan's stuff mainly Wake Up Productive. But the all time favorite has to be Napoleon Hill.

      Jack Canfield is my favourite mentor. It was hearing a tape of a seminar about 20 years ago that got me started on the journey.

      The best course though is the Practical Genius Course on the ScienceofGettingRich.net website. You pay for it what you want to pay, but it gives more value than some conferences or seminars that cost thousands.

      Hi everyone,

      As I'm a believer and practise the law of attraction (LOA), I gained a better understanding on how to apply this law after listening to Mr Kenneth Koh's Subconscious Mastery audio program. Although I believe the principles he shared derived a lot from the popular "The Master Key System" by Charles F Haanel, I like the way Kenneth present the topic in a clearer manner illustrated with lots of examples.

    My favourite business book has got to be the e-myth by Michael Gerber. So Michael Gerber has taught me a lot.

    I just finished reading Tim Ferris's book, the Four Hour Work Week, and time will tell but it may well have been life changing!

    I leanrned a lot for Joe Girrard too, the Greatest Salesman in the World.

    I love Tim Ferris, that guy is so crazy out there . I love how extreme he takes thing & all the experimentation he does on himself. That's just not my personality to be so detailed & extremely analytical but I learn a lot from the self-improvement experiments he does. Plus he's just inspiring to see how insanely he works & how focused he gets.
