On yesterday’s post I mentioned that people that teach prosperity should have money. I believe this principle is important for all mentors and people you take advice from.
Recently I told you about the wealth building seminar I left because I realized none of the presenters there made more money than I did. I apply this approach in all areas of my life.
A doctor told me I had a deviated septum and he wanted to operate on me. Yet his belly came through the door 30 seconds before he did, he had a pack of Marlboro in his lab coat pocket, and he was wheezing like Darth Vader. I told him I wouldn’t let him operate on me if he was the last doctor on earth.
I hired a personal trainer that wasn’t very wealthy. But he had bright eyes, clear skin, and a rocked up body with six-pack abs. I don’t care how much money he has, and I don’t care if my accountant weighs 300 pounds.
What is important is whether the person you’re taking advice from is successful at what they’re teaching. So how you doing on that?
