The Young Man’s Jetpack to Success

power

Champ,

Are you shackled to a 9 – 5 job, barely making ends meet, and don’t know how to else to survive? If only someone who was in your situation and broke free can show you the way.

Do you have extreme social anxiety and piss in your pants every time you think about approaching a girl? If only someone who was in your situation and broke free can show you the way.

Are you living life on auto-pilot, seeing your life passing by, and worrying if you’ll die as a nobody? But you don’t know how else to live? If only someone who was in your situation and broke free can show you the way.

Alright, I’m gonna cut to the chase.

You’re in for a special treat today. You’re about to read the first guest post on this site … ever! And all I have to say is that it will transform  your life if you apply it.

Following Footsteps vs. Making Tracks

As a reader here, I can guess some things about you.

You’re driven, motivated, and smarter than average. You’ve probably got some cool accomplishments under your belt.

But I’m also going to guess you’re missing the one obvious jetpack to success:

someone who does exactly what you want to do, and is willing to show you how it’s done.

If you’re familiar with the concepts of flow and deliberate practice, you’ll realize that the only way to get good at something is when the feedback loop is as short as possible.

If you took 50 baseball swings, but the ball vanished at the moment of impact, you would have no idea if you hitted a home run or busted. In order to learn, you need feedback to correct, evaluate, and change course.

Who better to correct you than someone who’s already mastered the kind of life you want to lead?

“I can do it alone! All the information is out there!”

Yes, learning the “how” of doing anything is easy. You can beg, borrow, or steal digital guides explaining “how” to do any skill.

So why haven’t you achieved greatness yet?

Searching for knowledge is trying to plug the wrong hole in a leaky ship. Despite having a vast treasure of knowledge available to you, there’s still a missing component to mastery.

The missing component is feedback. If only someone can give you feedback …

You Already Know the Kind of Man You Want to Be

And you probably know of someone who is the man you want to be. If only he would be your role model.

He could show you what is possible in life. He could expanded your worldview — from your old and limited outlook to an expansive and abundant one. He could showed you a bigger world than the one you currently know.

That’s the man you want to train under.

How to Convince Someone to Show You the Ropes

You know that you’ve got to get a mentor, but you don’t know where to start. Maybe you even have an idea of whom you want to study under. But you just don’t know how to make it happen.

Here’s how I make it happen:

Show them what you can do, and give them a taste for more.

Every master has weak spots he wants to improve.

Show him how you can be of great help.

Show him how you can directly improve the quality of his life.

Show him that taking you under his wing will bring him more of whatever he wants (i.e. money, power, or success).

And he will not think twice about bring you into his life.

The Key to the Most Successful Master-Apprentice Relationships

Skin. In. The. Game.

Nobody’s ever gotten where they want to be by sitting still. And no one’s ever learned from someone without sacrifice.

But you’ve got to take this conclusion to it’s logical end.

Not only do you need skin in the game in the form of sacrificing for your teacher.

He needs to have skin in the game too.

That means he would lose money, time, or effort if you don’t “work out.”

I don’t do the “teacher-student” thing. I do the “master-apprentice” thing.

Think about it like this:

  • A teacher will take on any student who shows up.
  • A master is extremely selective with his students.

  • A teacher cares about you in an abstract way.
  • A master is invested in your growth.

  • A teacher will charge you every month you study with him.
  • A master’s training is always free – but it will cost you everything.

In these 3 years, I have made $0 in income for myself. Yet, I will have made hundreds of thousands for the wizards I study under.

Notice how this approach focuses on giving rather than taking. If you give everything you’ve got, you’ll get everything you could ever want.

In My First Mentorship …

I was given control of a new business immediately.

Within 12 months, I’d turned a bunch of raw materials into a $100 / day business.

Now granted, this is slow. But it was my first time.

Making a full-time wage of an average person in a Western country, while doing basically no daily work after the building-phase made me proud.

But I needed to grow.

In My Second Mentorship …

I was given an immediate “dream task” with a hard deadline. What should have taken two weeks needed to be done in two days.

I burned the motherhugger to the ground.

How to Impress from the Get-Go

In an average internship you’ll get to print documents and ferry coffee. Maybe occasionally you’ll be invited to watch (but not participate in) a business deal.

In my hardcore mentorships, I’m thrown into real situations that demand performance immediately. I’m not expected to sit and watch. I’m expected to get results. And sometimes, I had to work on projects I had no experience in.

But here’s a quick tip to impress anyone:

Be strong in areas your mentor is not. Know things your mentor doesn’t know.

You don’t have to be the best; just be better.

Even if you’re a newbie, you can still provide value. Let’s say you’re a beginner in graphic design. You can still impress the hell out of a local business owner whose advertisements look like dog poop. His design skills are at a 1 out of 10; yours are at a 3 out of 10.

Since you can design better than he can, he might even hire you for more projects.

Even if you don’t get paid, here’s what mentorships give you:

Hardcore exposure to real business problems, and intimate knowledge of another person’s mind.

If you have enough experience and knowledge, you can create any job you want.

If you frequent this site, you know that Alex talks a lot about power. Here’s a great way to get all the power you could ever want: abandon your own. By giving up your power, you actually wield ultimate power.

Now that’s a bit facetious, but here’s what I mean:

Work for someone else who is currently where you want to be, for a minimum of 6 months (but preferably a year).

By studying under a master, you’ll learn weak spots you could never find yourself. You’ll develop expertise you could never develop yourself. And you’ll become a man with not just the skills, but the mindset of a master.

  1. THIS. IS. GOOD.

  2. Cool, an interesting read. Wish I would have sought Masters instead of going to college and being lectured by teachers.

    Thanks for the unique insight, as well as for sharing your personal experiences.
