While I can safely say I didn’t learn any new secrets to manifesting in either my business or personal life at the recently attended retreat, it did give me a chance to think about all the many ways that I have been successful in manifesting in my own life. Professionally what I have found is that finding masters to mentor and associate with is an invaluable way to move yourself forward. Masters are those who have gone before us in either a similar path or even a very different one; they are those who have realized success beyond our own and share a generosity of spirit with their support, feedback, and ideas. Masters can come in many shapes and sizes, and be professional or personal.
Success is impossible in a vacuum, and it is vital to seek out and connect with Masters that are willing to encourage and provide insight and wisdom. Doing it all ourselves is the slowest path and often the most arduous. No matter how groundbreaking we think we may be, I guarantee there is someone out there who has been through a similar circumstance even in an unrelated industry. Connect to your Masters as a forum for success, a creative brainstorm, a support network. Give up the idea of the glory in doing it all yourself, there is none! Reach out, look forward, and become a master to those behind you coming up.
It isn’t networking that gets you ahead, but netliving that enriches and rewards on every level.
