Hello everyone, this is Bryce, and I will be writing the post for today. Ryan is keeping busy, but he will return soon!
I recently finished the first draft of a fiction novel I’ve been working on for seven months.
There were many reasons why I succeeded this time. I have a child. I’m more mature. I have a supportive network of friends and family. I really wanted to create something that would inspire and entertain others. I was willing to put in the work… no matter what.
I also had Ryan as a mentor.
Would I have finished without him? Maybe. The world will never know. However, I am certain that the end product with be much better off because of him.
I’ve attempted many things, and all the great successes can be traced back to great instructors. When I earned by black belt in Shotokan Karate, I had some of the best instructors in the world. I landed an interview with a particularly awesome company, so I turned to someone with great, proven interview skills. On a side not, I got the job and it sucked, but that is a story for a different day.
The point of this post is to stress the importance of finding a mentor. With any endeavor you might take, find someone with proven experience in the field. Be it business, fitness, finance, relationships, or anything, don’t go in alone.
