I’ve mentioned Darren Hardy fleetingly in a few of my posts, but I have never really elaborated on his work. If you don’t know who Darren Hardy is, please visit his site and familiarize yourself with him as he really is an exceptional entrepreneur. So, for this post and in preparation for the new year, I’m going to share with you the exact 3-step system he uses every December 31st to prepare for the new year.
But, first, let me give due credit to him and mention that the idea for this article came from Darren Daily, a daily mentoring program, five days out of the week, from Monday-Friday. I have been on that program for a little over a year and I get to listen to Darren impart his wisdom and experience through Darren Daily. If interested, you can sign up here completely free of charge. It has paid dividends throughout the course of my membership and I’m sure it will for you as well.
Second, before we go further, I just wanted to touch upon the importance of mentorship. For those of you who are serious about personal development and growing your business, I’m positive you have heard about the benefits of having a mentor. For those of you who are new to personal development and are budding entrepreneurs, please allow me to be the first to tell you that it is extremely important to have guidance from people who have been on the journey and came out successful on the other side. It will save you resources and help you avoid the common and not-so-common pitfalls on your entrepreneurial journey. Most importantly, it will save you time as you get wisdom and knowledge that can only be gained from experience.
“A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether.” – Roy H. Williams
Third, before I go into the topic of this post, I do cruise alongside other successful entrepreneurs by following their podcasts, YouTube channel or subscribing to their daily talks like I did with Darren Hardy. By doing this, I get access to some of the greatest minds of our time and sort of be able to adapt their mentality into my own and come out more knowledgeable and a better person and entrepreneur because of it.
Darren Hardy’s System
Finally, here is Darren Hardy’s video from 12.28.16. I wanted to share it with you because I believe this will make a HUGE difference in how your 2017 will turn out if you apply it.
Hope you guys found that as valuable as I did! I really treasure the times I get to listen to him in the mornings; It just sets a very positive tone for the rest of the day.
To supplement the video, here is your task (from Darren) to help you apply what he spoke about in the video.
