When we leverage, we aggregate and organize existing resources to achieve success.
In order to utilize Leverage profitably, you must first amass all the ingredients necessary to make the change. Then, in order to achieve your goal, you have to implement the skills that you have acquired, and/or utilize a mentor. To use a cooking analogy, you cannot make a cake without all the ingredients – which reminds us that we can’t accomplish our goals if we don’t have all the elements required.
That being said, one of the most important elements used by successful people to achieve success is mentorship. When working into a field in which we do not have adequate experience, progress is generally slow. And we know that we cannot always rely on luck, patronage or past experience to propel us in the right direction. One of the most productive alternatives to speed up our progress is to find, and be guided by, a mentor.
Using the Celebrity Experts(TM) in this book as guides and mentors, you will learn of their successes and failures, both of which can act as a steady GPS to move you closer to your goal. In their absence, and left to your own plans and devices, the task may be even more daunting than you imagined. You will find that you can use their help to Leverage your situation, thereby saving you both time and finances in getting you to your goal.
Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four-hour days.
