Everybody wants it, most pretend to have it, and only a few achieve it.
I’m talking about
Success is a destination, one that requires a lengthy journey full of hard work, failures, sacrifices, and tough lessons. For that reason, most people never actually get there, it takes too much effort, and for way too long.
But what if I told you that you could cut the length of your journey to success in half? By obtaining something that most people fail to get, would you believe such a claim?
Well, Surprise surprise, online mentors have entered the chat.
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 and succeeded. This person knows all the ins and outs of how to get to that destination you crave so badly.
They can provide you with the crucial wisdom that will speed up your journey to success dramatically.
By having a mentor you can jump over the trial and error stage.
A hell of a shortcut, that comes about only because the mentor can guide you on what to avoid, and what to act on.
His words and support will also motivate you and inspire you.
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 hyper 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 peeps that at some point had the guidance of a mentor.
Now, the million dollar question (literally), where and how can you get a mentor?
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 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, today through the use of social media, you can access Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, or Linked In, and in a matter of minutes, find tons of online mentors
The following 5 online mentors are men that everyone should adopt. Especially younger men who are struggling with life’s challenges, 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. He’s a master at his craft, so much so, that he has even taught at Harvard!
Dr. Peterson has recently (2017-2018) exploded in popularity, because of his appearances in several news channels and podcasts. Some include the Joe Rogan Experience, Real time with Bill Maher, and Vogue.
Jordan has a highly objective outlook on like. He is constantly searching for the truth, and doesn’t expect anything in life to be easy. Dr. Peterson expresses that life is supposed to be challenging, and even unfair at times.
Through sharing his lectures, Jordan has amassed many follower, as well as many haters. Which is expected, since no one likes to hear that they aren’t successful because of their shitty decisions.
“Face the demands of life voluntarily. Respond to a challenge, instead of bracing for catastrophe”Jordan Peterson
On Youtube, there are many binge-worthy videos of Jordan. I urge you to look them up!
In them, Jordan defends his views against malicious journalists, who are constantly trying to make him look bad.
Jordan dismantles most of his haters with logic and facts, the journalists don’t stand a chance! Jordan is way too smart. It’s quite funny, and cringeworthy!
One time, while being interviewed on the topic of equality, by widely known feminist Cathy Newman. Jordan destroyed her, after she tried to get him to say something controversial to damage his reputation.
Look for yourself!
I first encountered Peterson on the Joe Rogan Podcast, and after hearing him speak for about 5 minutes…
I could tell he was speaking truth.
Jordan mainly focuses on human behavior, no surprise, 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 rarely engages in a discussion that he has no facts or prior research on.
So it’s safe to say that Jordan Peterson is a good, trustworthy man.

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 for validation. To satisfy his need for approval, David adopted the role of class clown. But he wasn’t making everyone laugh, many people still mistreated him.
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.
