So What Is A Mentor Anyway?
To put it in simple terms, a mentor is: a guide in your field, a person that has already been through his journey to success, he knows all the ins and outs of how to get to that destination you crave so badly. This person can provide you with crucial wisdom that will speed up your journey to success dramatically.
You see by obtaining a mentor you avoid going through all the trial and error that an expert usually has to go through.
This shortcut occurs because this person will let you know what to do and what to avoid doing.
He will also motivate and inspire you through his words and actions.
These benefits of tested knowledge and emotional support is something that no amount of hard work, reading, or discipline can bring you.
Take a look at the following list of super successful individuals who utilized mentors and became the greatest at what they do.
- The greatest basketball player ever Michael Jordan had his college coach Dean Smith
- Top 5 basketball star Kobe Bryant had Michael Jordan and Bill Russell
- Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg had Steve Jobs
- The second richest man in the world Bill Gates had Warren Buffet
- Billionaire Richard Branson had Sir Freddie Laker
- The first billionaire African American woman Oprah Winfrey had Maya Angelou
Those are just a few, but there are many more successful individuals that at some point in their lives where guided by a mentor.
Now, the million dollar question (literally), where can you get one of those mentors?
Twenty years ago, I would have told you, “you’re shit out of luck.” Because finding a mentor with the knowledge to propel you forward to success is not an easy task. Not only do you have to find someone who’s legit, but also someone who genuinely wants to help you.
Twenty years ago, discovering a mentor meant you had to find yourself in the right place and becoming acquainted with the right people.
So then maybe, just maybe, someone would connect you to the right mentor.
Fortunately for you, through the use of social media; today, you can just access Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, or Linked In, and in a matter of minutes, find tons of online mentors. Ones which you desperately need.
So let’s get to it, the following 5 online mentors are men that everyone should follow. Especially younger men who are struggling with different aspects of life and want to better themselves. Men who feel that something is missing. Men that know their potential is far greater than what they are currently putting out.
Online Mentors 1: Jordan Peterson
Jordan Peterson is a brilliant clinical psychologist/professor from Canada. One who has enjoyed many years of experience practicing his craft, and has had the honor of even teaching at Harvard.
Dr. Peterson has recently (2017-2018) exploded in popularity because of his appearances in several news channels and podcasts; including
Jordan has a highly objective outlook on like, he is always searching for the truth and doesn’t expect anything in life to be easy. In fact, Dr. Peterson expresses that life is supposed to be challenging and in many occasions unfair.
Sharing his beliefs has brought Jordan many followers, and also many haters. Which is expected since no one likes to hear that the only reason they aren’t successful is
“Face the demands of life voluntarily. Respond to a challenge, instead of bracing for catastrophe”.Jordan Peterson
Right now on Youtube, there are many binge-worthy videos of Jordan defending his views against the malicious journalists; ones who are trying to make him look bad.
In the videos Jordan dismantles almost all his critiquers with logic and facts, the journalists don’t stand a chance! Jordan is way too smart. It’s quite funny, and cringeworthy!
On one occasion while being interviewed on the topic of equality by widely known feminist and journalist Cathy Newman; Newman was trying to corner Jordan into saying something controversial that would damage his reputation, but Dr. Peterson caught on to it early on and flipped it on her!
Look for yourself in the following video! The first 4 minutes should be enough for you to get the point.
I first encountered Peterson on the Joe Rogan Podcast, and after hearing him speak for about 5 minutes, I could tell this man was on to something.
I could tell he was speaking truth.
Jordan mainly focuses on human behavior in his lessons, naturally, since he’s a psychologist. He tackles topics like morality, competence, mental illness, social hierarchies, religion, attraction, and even some politics.
What I really enjoy and admire about Peterson is that he uses science and logic to make and back up his arguments. Jordan never engages in a discussion that he has no facts or prior research on.
So it’s safe to say that most of what Jordan Peterson is speaking on is based on actual truth and not opinion.
Why You Should Listen To Jordan Peterson?
I think that everyone should listen to Dr. Peterson because there is so much wisdom to learn from him. He’s a moral man, and also a highly trained psychologist that has a pretty good grasp on how human beings work.
However, I do believe some people need some of his wisdom more than others, For example, People that are feeling lost.
If you are someone who has no idea what your purpose in life is, and you just go through your days feeling blank and empty, then Dr. Peterson can help you a ton!
If you are a guy who is struggling with fitting into your role of being a man in society, then Dr. Peterson can also help you too. He will show you ways in which you can become competent and therefore valuable to both women and the community.
Lastly, if you are someone who is on the verge of losing your spouse, then Dr. Peterson can also help you there. He has much wisdom on how relationships work between men and women, and he can help you reignite that fire that is lost.
There is much more you can learn from Dr. Peterson, so if it’s truth that leads to a better life that you’re searching for, then follow him now!
Where Can You Find Dr. Peterson?
Dr. Peterson can be found all over Youtube; if you type his name in the Youtube search bar, you’ll get a ton of results showing his interviews and debates. He also has a podcast and Youtube channel, and you desire to hear him speak in person or want to buy some of his bestselling books, then just visit his website: https://jordanbpeterson.com
Online Mentors 2: Owen Cook AKA RSD Tyler
Also known as RSD Tyler, Owen Cook is a master of social dynamics between men and women; he’s a pick-up artist.
Yes, you read that correctly, that balding ginger has slept with more women in a year than most men sleep within their entire lives!
I first discovered Tyler when I broke up with my ex-girlfriend in 2013. The break-up left me so depressed and lonely that I began looking for ways to get rid of the pain, and that’s when I ran into Tyler’s channel on Youtube.
I was fascinated by the idea he was selling, which was that you didn’t have to leave it to destiny to be with a beautiful woman. Instead, you can take it into your own hands and go get her!
Since I was determined to make the pain from the break-up stop, this idea really stuck with me.
What Tyler teaches is referred to as “game,” and it is the way in which men who are clueless about how attraction with women work, can not only learn how to attract a beautiful woman but also become confident and successful while learning. Cook is one of the pioneers on game and has been doing it for 15+ years.
Why Should You Listen To Tyler?
Everyone has an instinctual predisposition to attaining a partner to mate with, it’s part of biology.
Therefore I think that everyone should know how to engage, talk to, and attract a member of the opposite sex, and that is why you should listen and learn from Tyler.
Before I discovered Tyler I had no idea how to speak to women. I would still try my best, but without the knowledge, I would fail 9 out of 10 times.
The failure and the lack of wisdom affected my confidence; as a result I became a young kid with low self-esteem.
Since discovering Tyler’s channel and watching hours upon hours of his content… I have now spoken to hundreds of women, and slept with more than I could have ever imagined back in the day!
My confidence is now through the roof because I know what to do. I no longer fear that thought of “maybe destiny doesn’t have a beautiful girl for me.” Screw you, destiny! I’ll get her myself!
So if you are a person that is struggling with love, and it seems like nothing is working out for you, then I suggest you go watch RSDTyler right now. Also check out my article on attracting women, which I learned from Tyler!
You will realize that there is nothing wrong with you, but rather that there is something wrong with your current mentality. Once you change your mindset and attain the knowledge, your success in love will be inevitable.
Where Can You Find RSD Tyler?
You can find many of Tyler’s videos on Youtube; just type in RSD Tyler on the search bar, and you’ll get hundreds of results. Most of the videos are quite long, but they offer amazing field-tested content, and free!
Tyler does have other instructors, ones who are also very good. So if you don’t like the way Tyler teaches, then you can just learn from his other instructors.
Here a quick glimpse into the genius that is Rsd Tyler, in the following video he breaks down the type of man women want to date.
Jocko Willink is a former navy seal who fought in Iraq. He led his troops into combat missions many times and came out victorious. Jocko received a Silver Star and a Bronze Star for his courage while in service. He’s a total badass!
Ever since his retirement in 2010, Jocko has been teaching the nuances of leadership to big businesses. A skill he learned through leading his troops into battle.
Recently he’s expanded to teaching the crucial skill of leadership to anyone willing to listen. He does so through his books (complete ownership and discipline equals freedom), which are now New York times best sellers.
Jocko’s podcast which he started a little over 2 years ago, now has over 350 thousand listeners! It was inspired by Joe Rogan on the Joe Rogan experience (where I first found Jocko).
Jocko Preaches about always taking complete ownership of your shit, and never blaming anybody for your lack of success.
Jocko is definitely one who practices what he preaches, this man never takes a day off! If you look up his Instagram account, you can see Jocko is getting up at 3:30 am every day, to work out and get his shit done!
It’s hard to deny the fact that whatever he’s doing seems to be working, it’s

Online Mentors 4: Gary Vaynerchuk
Gary Vaynerchuk is the type of guy that if you don’t know him, you’d think of him as a loudmouth, arrogant prick, but just like you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, you shouldn’t judge Gary.
Once you go deeper into who Gary is, you’ll realize he is actually a brilliant businessman who speaks the truth.
So who is Gary Vaynerchuk?
Well, Gary is an immigrant from Russia whose family came to the states in pursuit of a better life.
Right from the beginning, Gary took advantage of the free commerce available in the US. While still only a child, Gary sold lemonade and baseball cards to other kids in his neighborhood and even employed some of them!
He claims that entrepreneurship came naturally to him ever since he was a kid, which makes sense because Gary never did well in school. After barely getting through high school, Gary went on to work for his dad’s liquor store, which he ended up growing into a 60 million dollar company!
A feat that came with extreme sacrifice,
Gary explains in his videos that his day consisted of 14 hr days, 7 days a week. He had absolutely zero social life for 10 years! Talk about discipline and obsession!
Soon after, Vaynerchuk left his dad’s business to create his own business, a social media agency (Vayner Media). Today Vayner Media manages the social media of companies like Pepsi, Toyota, and Chase Bank.
Along with growing Vayner media, Vaynerchuck also began giving speeches on success in business and sharing his knowledge on leveraging the internet to build your business through Youtube.
His talks and videos became an instant success, to the point that today Gary is widely known among the business community, and he is hired to speak all over the world.
As of now, his Youtube channel holds 1.8 million subscribers, and to top it all off, he also has four published books which have all been bestsellers! Not to mention, Gary is the first entrepreneur to have a signature shoe.
Why Listen To Gary Vaynerchuk?
The reason Gary has attained so much popularity is that he tells people the ugly truth!
He doesn’t sugarcoat shit, like some of those success gurus who tell people that “there’s a secret way” or “use the law of attraction.”
No, Gary tells people it’s going to be inconceivably hard, and that they are going to have to work their ass off every single day, all day.
He loves to preach on patience because he believes that one cannot be successful without the awareness that it’s going to be a long bumpy road.
Gary also teaches about perspective and gratefulness, because you can’t become a successful businessman with a bitter, victim-like mentality.
Basically, the main reason you should listen to Gary is because the path to financial success is basically the same in every avenue.
As Gary teaches, you need to provide free quality value, until you get to that point where you’ve built a big enough audience to start selling your content. If you are an entrepreneur then Gary should be your go to of the online mentors.
So if you believe you can give something to the world, and you want to gain that financial freedom that most people only dream of, then listen to this man. He is a genius when it comes to building a brand/business empire.
Where Can You Find Gary?
Like I mentioned earlier, Gary has a very popular Youtube channel called Gary Vee. On this channel, Gary speaks on many different topics about financial success in this day in age.
You can also find his podcast called The Garyvee audio experience.
Gary has four books he’s written; I’ve personally read two of them, Crush it and Crushing it. The books are very entertaining and provide crazy value on how to grow a brand through the use of the internet and social media.

Online Mentors 5: David Goggins
The first time I ever heard David Goggins was on the Joe Rogan podcast, let me tell you, after listening to this man speak for 10 minutes; I grabbed my car keys drove to the gym and proceeded to have my best workout session ever!
David’s story is so damn inspiring, and he tells it with such passion that it can give anyone chills as he tells it!
David grew up in a harsh neighborhood, he was always bullied and harassed. On top of that, he had a father who regularly beat him and his mother.
As a result David grew up to be a young adult with low-self esteem and with a desperate need to make people like him. To satisfy his need for approval David adopted the role of class clown, but still, people often mistreated him, and he just took it.
Although he hid it well, David felt like a fraud, profoundly miserable inside. He was overweight and made living spraying cockroaches; his life was at such a low point that suicide sounded like a decent idea.
One day David decided he had enough, and went on this crazy life-changing journey. A journey that would make him join the navy seals, run numerous ultra-marathons, and earn him the title of the baddest man in the world!
Today David is a motivational speaker with great success, not just because of everything he has accomplished, but because of the way he speaks.
David speaks with extreme passion and determination. He lets people know that suffering not only good but necessary; and that they need to stop being little bitches.

You should listen to David Goggins because his passion and determination are contagious. Like I mentioned earlier, the way he spoke motivated me to have my best workout ever, and it can do the same for you!

In this day in age people are so scared of suffering, they avoid pain at all costs, but Goggins teaches the opposite, he says you should put yourself in painful situations to find out who you really are.
