When it comes to success in life, there are few relationships that will have a greater transformative impact than that of a mentor. No matter what you do for a living, what industry or career track you choose, finding someone who has walked the path before you can help you reach your goals and avoid pitfalls in your quest for long-term success. Unfortunately, thoughtful mentors seldom declare themselves and must be sought out, often in the most unlikely places. The student must seek and find the mentor - not the other way around, and mentors can come from anywhere, even from the pages of a book like this one….
The Great Ones is a delightful and enlightening fable that reveals the importance of mentors and the pivotal difference a great mentor can have on one's life. For young entrepreneurs and business leaders, it imparts valuable lessons on the fundamentals of success, both professionally and personally. In it, a wise old man shares his hard-earned pearls of wisdom with a boy about to sprout wings and fly into the world on his own. Through a series of poignant and sometimes painful lessons, the boy learns to navigate life's minefields, develop sound judgment, apply the law of accumulation, understand the value of giving his all, assess risk and reward, and - ultimately - win at the game of life. In the end, he unlocks the inner secrets that will eventually transform him into a Great One himself.
Life - and business - fraught with endless ups and downs, call out for the wisdom of a dedicated mentor and friend to help navigate them successfully. If you don't yet have a Great One of your own, or don't know where to start your search, The Great Ones provides deep insight on life's most important lessons.
