Trusted motivational mentors are hard to find, but they are a key to your future success! They are people who have done what we want to do and can be a great source of direction for our greater future. Last week, when I was in San Diego, I stayed in the scenic Torrey Pines area, which is not far from the world-famous Torrey Pines Glideport. This is a historic flight port which has been in use since 1938, and that’s where I learned about trusted motivational mentors.
The picture above is one of the many dramatic photos on the walls of the Glideport office.
This place, on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, is renowned for paragliding, hang gliding, and sail planing. And, there is also room for radio controlled flying. I loved being there.
On the evening when I visited the Glideport last week, they were already closed for the day. Otherwise, I would have inquired about tandem flights. That’s where you go flying with a certified instructor in a paraglider or hand glider for up to 30 minutes. The beauty is that all ages and physical abilities are welcome. In fact, some years ago I saw a disabled young lady go on a tandem flight here. Her comment afterwards: “When flying, I didn’t feel disabled. It was magic!”
In order to go tandem flying at Torrey Pines, you have to trust your instructor. That they know what they’re doing. That the two of you will actually take off when the two of you step off the cliff. That you will return safely.
In order to achieve greatness in life, I believe that all of us have to show trust.
Trust can be in the form of finding someone who has done what we want to do, asking them for advice, and then following that advice. If there’s something special you’ve wanted to accomplish, why not identify that person now and trust their guidance to help your future take off. To be a great leader, we must first be a good follower. That will help us stay positive!
“I identify the people I need to follow and trust their guidance!”
