If money could actually make us happy then why is it that:
“Among the extremely wealthy, suicide was the cause of 23.6 percent of their deaths between 2008 and 2010. Suicide among millionaires and billionaires […] is a social problem, which shows more people cannot cope with the pressure they feel to maintain their wealth after they’ve become successful,” said Hu of Fudan University.
Did you know, suicide rates are higher among the wealthiest nations?
You know how… the more successful we become the more pressure there is to uphold an image of what we are “supposed” to be…
Then you also probably know… The more successful people become the easier it is to feel like there are less and less people you can trust with your own problems and challenges?
The main problem is: That we might think because we have become successful we’ve figured it all out… The biggest challenge with that is that as we become increasingly successful it’s easy to also become increasingly cynical too.
Then the more cynical you become the easier it is to say; “it’s obviously not me, look at how successful I am, clearly it’s the world, or other people that are all screwed up”.
And of course, that in turn simply deepens that sinking feeling that there’s something missing!
We all know… That any idea of support is often dismissed as either therapy or new age B.S, and that belief in turn strengthen the sense of isolation.
All this is fine for those who want to continue living that lying while justifying their own misery. The successful person with high intellect and emotional intelligence are not only smart enough, but actually strong enough to put up their hand…and those are the people I work with!
Which one are you?
Here’s the red Flags…If you are seeing any of them you need to be working with Dov…
- You want something more but, rah-rah motivation, shrinks and new age gurus have absolutely no appeal to you
- You feel like the only thing you ever speak about is business
- You feel and increasing distance between yourself and those you love
- You are on your second (or more) divorce
- Your personal and business relationships are shallow
- You are really successful by everyone else’s standard but you know you are capable of so much more!
- You find it difficult to trust others
- You suspect that people think of you as an ass-hole, while you know that deep down you are not one.
- You are finding it increasingly difficult to trust yourself in a given situation
- It’s very difficult for you to find people you can honestly confide in
- Things that used to rejuvenate and stimulate you now bore you
- You increasingly suspect that you are surrounded by “yes men/women”
- The high of a financial win has become brief at best
- You are seeing a slight, yet increasing use (or abuse) of substances
- Sexual experiences often feel empty like they lack substance
- Even though you are at the top, you feel like you are stuck on some kind of hamster wheel and you can’t get off
- I feels like someone is constantly moving your cheese
- Being rich, powerful, successful and even famous is Not even slightly as satisfying as you once thought it would be
- You are becoming increasingly cynical about the meaning of it all
However, If you are any of the below, don’t even bother!
- You actually believe that you’ve got your shit together, and it’s everyone else that’s screwed up
- You actually believe that the next level of financial success is going to really solve your “problem”
- You are close minded and certain that what you think/believe is always right
- You believe that the most important thing there is, is money
- You really enjoy bitching and complaining
- You love to point the finger at others
- You actually believe that the more successful you are the more people genuinely care about you
- If you are a cheap bastard
- You are a narcissistic dick (dickett)!
When you just stop and think about it hiring a Mentor is the only thing that makes sense if you are committed to finding out what’s next for those who are committed to constant excellence.
Fools (no matter how wealthy or successfully they are) think that it’s weak to hire someone like a coach or a mentor; they may even have believed that it means they are somehow deficient. The reality of it is this: Those who are really at the top of their game, whether they are top athletes, celebrities, business leaders, or top political figures are all committed to creating outstanding results in their lives and their careers. That’s because this kind of outstanding achiever always has not only coaches but mentors who can elicit from them the kind of personal power that they may have only suspected was buried within them.
In fact no matter how brilliant you may be, I know you understand this, it is impossible to be fully objective in your own life. Meaning we often cannot see the truth of what’s going on in our own lives as clear as someone on the outside can. The challenge is that for many of these people, people who are performing at such an extraordinary level, it can hard to know whether the opinion or input they are getting is real or is a reflection of their own position. Or worse it can be too easy for them to fool themselves into thinking that because they have such outstanding levels of success in one area, that they should somehow magically know how to reach those same levels in other areas. Areas in which they may have no experience and or very bad training. But let me make it clear: Everyone both needs and deserves a mentor! Why? Because success, no matter how big it looks, is at best momentary in delivering the kind of deep satisfaction and fulfillment we all desire.
As a result of being mentored by Dov…
- Clients often experience a significant increase in both business and profit
- While vastly increasing their time off
- Work environment becomes less and less stressful and frustrating
- Significant increase in work-life balance
- A rejuvenated outlook on what the future holds…far less cynicism
- A vast increase in the quality of all personal relationships
- Reversing the cynicism allows you to attract more meaningful and profitable professional relationship
- Personal and professional projects become less and less complicated
- An increased focus on what matters most to the individual at hand
- Increased focus on the quality of mental, emotional and physical health
- Increased ability to more easily make decisions that are inline with what you authentically desire
- Rejuvenation of personal and professional drive
- Rejuvenation of creativity and innovation
- An increased ability to trust
All of the above erases the feeling of “something is missing” from your reality. Which ultimately is what high performing individuals want…if they are willing to admit it!
You’re a winner!
But could you benefit from working with Dov?
