Evan Carmichael helps entrepreneurs. His new book is “Your One Word: The Powerful Secret to Creating a Business”.
Changing your environment, changes your mentality. Having a mentor is an important component to success. However, nobody wants to commit to being your mentor if they do not know you. Michael and Evan share the best ways to go out and meet successful people and gain those life changing mentorships. Also, they discuss how one on one access to successful people isn’t critical. If you have a computer with internet, you have access to knowledge.
What is the idea behind having “one word?” People are walking through life in a fog. Having your “one word” is having a word that defines you and is your core value. What makes you, you? What really drives you? These are the questions that make up your word. Once you figure out what your word is, you can then look at what is in your life that represents that word. Who are the people in your life that are the opposite of your word? You then can start living a path that makes sense.

“Believe that what you are doing is right. Follow your passion. Do it because you are meant to do it. Do it to do it, not just to make money. Believe that you can achieve it. Have the confidence to know that if you think you can achieve it, you can. Believe that it will happen. Have the conviction to follow through. Trust that if you see only darkness around you, there is light at the end of the tunnel.” – Evan Carmichael
