Wednesday, 8 April
disruptors. Rob talks us through the benefits of having mentors and who to look up to as well as setting some actions for your kids to focus on during their time in lockdown.
Make sure you encourage your parents to introduce you to successful friends of theirs. Children will likely listen to other adults more than they will listen to their parents. If you want to be a success, the best way to do this is by listening and learning from people who have already achieved this.
Mentors are people that are probably older than you and further along in their lives. They have overcome some of the challenges and problems that you have yet to face. Trying to figure things out by yourself when you’re so young is not easy to do, a mentor is a great way to guide you in reaching your goals.
Try earning your own money by asking for some small jobs to do for your parents or creating small businesses allowing you to be in control and to teach you the value of your money.
If you have a hobby or an interest that you particularly love when you’re an entrepreneur you can make money from that. You are able to call your passion, your profession. As an entrepreneur creating a business from what you love, there is no cap on what you can earn.
With youth comes energy and you have that advantage over people who have been in industries longer. Your enthusiasm and passion are admired by the older generations and they are likely to invest time and money into you. You’re likely to have a more open-minded outlook on life since you’re yet to face much hardship in your career or financial life, having a positive outlook is a key to success.
Setting goals for yourself will allow you to plan for your future. Make your goals achievable and be accountable for them. Remind yourself that failure is okay and part of the course. It is far better to try and fail than to not try at all.
“If you want to have all the things you want in life, you want nice things, be able to do nice things and be happy, the best way to do that is by learning through people that have already got it”
“Comfort is the enemy of success and greatness comes from being uncomfortable”
“Life is too short to not do what you enjoy for a living”
“You show us a bit of grit, determination, and desire to do something and enjoy what you do, that is going to attract people to invest in you”
