How to Use Mentors to Take You HIGHER in Your Business!

This Post was originally written by me for the Pakistani Christian Business Group

God says in His abundant word, “As iron sharpens iron… so one person sharpens the wits of another!” (Proverbs 27:17)

Whenever we get together with people who are of higher skill level than us (or even of the same skill level)… something special begins to happen. The wisdom, the experience, the know-how of that other person begins to rub off on us… and vice versa… until in the end, both people are SHARPER because of that meeting and relationship!

It is a STRANGE phenomenom, but its true. The Bible describes it as “Iron sharpening iron”. As you all may know, after you use a knife, axe, or any other type of cutting tool for ANY extended amount of time… it begins to get “dull” on the edge and LOSE it’s ability to do it’s job (which is to cut).

As we go through lives in our businesses and ministries, we expend a lot of energy, and sometimes grow weary… and begin to get “dull” and slowly lose our ability to think creatively… or cut new deals… and we become inefficient at what we do over time.

Every so often, it is a MUST for us, that we connect with people who are of the same mindset as yourself… or even higher. It would be preferrable if these people are in the same business arena as you.

What will happen is that when you befriend people such as this… you’ll be able to talk with them, get re-energized, get a NEW passion for your business, bounce creative ideas off of them, get a NEW spark… and you and that other person will literally “sharpen the wits of each other!”

This is the whole essence of having Mastermind Groups and even this rapidly-growing Pakistan Christian Business Group that Kamran Khan founded. All of us, from our different walks… from different parts of the world… have at least two things in common:

(1) We all worship Jesus Christ.

(2) We all want to succeed in our businesses.

You see friend, we all have something to offer each other… and I invite you all to start discussions on the Facebook page at Pak. Christian Business… so that we may all SHARPEN each other! If you need help or a creative idea, ask for help! If someone is having trouble and posts it in a discussion… help them out!

Do you want to get to a level that you can’t get to by yourself in business? Try to find mentors online and offline! In this day and age… there are PLENTY of people out there willing to impart their wisdom and experience to you, if you seem excited about their knowledge… and are willing to buy them something as small as lunch… or even a cup of coffee!

Even if you have to pay a mentor for their knowledge, I can guarantee you… that what you will get out of it in the long run will be worth THOUSANDS more than you paid!

If you can’t get your favorite mentor(s) in-person… then buy their books, read their forums and blogs, attend conventions, read their articles… there are SO many different ways that you can be mentored.

Until next Friday my Christian Business friends, be blessed and stay sharp!
