There was a flurry of tweets about mentoring last night and one person asked me ‘What are the KPIs and success factors used to measure the achievement of deliverables in mentoring?’.
To which I replied; ‘Making Money!’
You see, for me that is the acid test of whether I have achieved success in helping a business as a mentor – whether or not they are making more money after my help than before I became involved.
So I was concerned to receive a separate tweet from ‘PiggyBankSaysNo’ to tell me they were at Day 57 of my Daily Mentoring Videos – but could not afford the £25 to buy any more. As these videos are designed to take people from financial struggle into flow I knew something must be wrong!!!
There’s usually two reasons why mentoring support doesn’t work:
1) Lack of ACTION on suggestions made/advice given, and
2) Being stuck in a Poverty Mindset
It didn’t take much analysis to discover that 2) was in dire need of attention!
We talk out future into existence through the words we use and affirmations we (often unwittingly) make. In this case, calling yourself ‘PiggyBankSaysNo’ does not augur success! Combined with a Twitter avatar depicting an empty piggy bank facing left (the past). Whatever you focus on you get more of – so my simple suggestion to PiggyBankSaysNo was to start by changing the name of the business to PiggyBankSaysYES !!!
Not only was the name changed that evening, the logo was replaced with a piggy bank facing right (the future) – full of money !!! ACTION.
Creating the fertile ground to attract wealth always starts with setting the right intention!
I wouldn’t mind betting that PiggyBankSaysYES will find that affirmation magically coming true very quickly in days to come….
(She also hadn’t been actioning the advice in the videos either – but that’s a whole other story!)
