There are different ways to achieve personal and professional success. Most people do everything by themselves and learn from their own mistakes. The problem with this approach is that creating massive results usually takes a lot of valuable time.

Taking this into account, what's the point of reinventing the wheel?
Isn't it better to model the best people in your field, learn 10x faster, and accomplish massive results? Having successful individuals as your mentors can be a game-changer and most people are aware of it. However, many of us never take any action. The main reason?
FEAR. The fear of rejection, the fear of failure, the fear of the unknown.
We say to ourselves:

-I don't have enough experience
-I'm too young/old
-I'm just an average person with nothing to offer
-I'm not good enough etc.

However, we need to recognize those statements for what they really are - LIMITING BELIEFS. If you want to live a great life you need to start destroying those disempowering thought patterns.

The million-dollar question is:

How can you distinguish yourself from thousands of other people and actually build relationships with your role models?

The truth is counterintuitive. It can get lonely at the top and connecting with TOP players in your industry can be actually easier than you think. This course is a straightforward step-by-step guide for finding powerful mentors. We will reveal the strategies that will help you to connect with people you admire. Moreover, we have uploaded real case studies, templates and will be posting bonus videos.

We understand that before enrolling you want to make sure that the content is perfect for your specific needs. This is why we’ve uploaded several free videos so you can get a feeling for what’s about to come. Take this course now and start connecting with the industry leaders & dramatically cut your learning curve.

Let our journey begin.

"Great content, engaging delivery, and inspiring scenery. The testimonials that Martin shares are very helpful. They illustrate how much can be accomplished when someone is willing to give their own value without reservation. By following the thoughtful and proven advice, anyone can identify successful people they want to learn from *and* make it happen. I'm already implementing what I've learned and seeing some results. I highly recommend this course!!"

"
I especially liked the section on researching your potential mentor. Martin is so likable, that even though I did know many things he said about communications, social skills etc, it was fun to watch and a good reminder and refresher course. I think he would be a great mentor for a lot of young people, so I'm giving it 5 stars for the 18-25 demographic." - Elizabeth Van Rij

"Dont ever be stopped by limiting beliefs - you can do it too! That's the lesson I mostly learned from Martin and Jimmy. By showing the why, how and even the what I'm now connecting to new mentors in life. The results in my life are already coming there and I'm very happy I took this course. The speakers are so good, definitely the best ones here on Udemy and it's crazy to see how the speakers have improved over his past courses. You can see that they really practice what they preach, by getting better everyday with help of successful mentors. The audio and video is beyond what you see in most courses and the views are STUNNING (and I'm not only talking about the speakers haha ;-) ) If you're in doubt of buying this course, consider the following: Do you want to move further in life? If you want to get a long or make crazy progress wouldn't it be great if someone helps you get there? If the answer is two times yes, do it!" - Luke Van Enkhuizen

This new found self-belief lead him to pursue his bigger dreams of travelling, of meeting his heros and befriending them. On his journey he worked for some famous entrepreneurs and learn how to surround himself with the best people out there. From a loner he become a super-connector.

FROM GOLDMAN SACHS TO ENTREPRENEURSHIP

In my “previous” life I was in the corporate world, working for companies such as Goldman Sachs. However, I quickly realized it wasn’t for me and dove into entrepreneurship. I’ve spent over 8 years teaching over 250,000 people in my online courses while traveling full-time (76 countries). I always embrace the white-belt mentality, but I’m also grateful to see my courses mentioned in leading publications such as Entrepreneur, FoxNews, Forbes, and BusinessInsider.

IMPACTING MILLIONS

For many years my single mission was to help millions of people with their psychological issues. Hence, my obsession with building educational content for the masses. However, as my audience grew, I started getting approached by various experts who also wanted to create courses. Sadly, in most cases, fear, confusion, and perceived complexity rendered them paralyzed.

COURSE CREATION:

Nowadays, together with my Team, we help experts, entrepreneurs and companies amplify their “voice” by creating world-class online courses. Course creation is not easy, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Having an experienced support team in your corner can save you months of wasted time and costly mistakes. After receiving over 40,000 official 5/5 ratings, I've learned what works and what doesn’t.

"007" LIFESTYLE

However, life is not just about business and building courses. I do my best to embrace all aspects of being a human and try to make the most of my 28,000 days on this planet. I constantly seek opportunities to challenge myself on the physical, mental and spiritual levels. For a decade, I’ve been exploring unconventional paths whether it’s training Muay Thai in Thailand, surfing in Bali, hiking the Himalayas, exploring Colombian jungles, or doing ice baths in frozen lakes - all of it while running my businesses.

FROM STAGE PHOBIA TO TOP PRESENTER:

I absolutely love connecting with audiences all over the world, from Barcelona to Tokyo. I regularly speak on prestigious stages such as Digital|K, MindvalleyU, WeWork, and DNX, to name a few, often being voted the best speaker of the event. I also host international gatherings such as OCR European Championships and run private training (online and offline) for companies.

PODCAST

As a passion project, I interview top performers in their fields including Bestselling Authors, Special Forces Soldiers, UFC Hall of Famers, Entrepreneurs, and Artists. Those deep-dive conversations serve as a springboard to explore human potential. Some of my guests include Bruce Lipton, John Joseph, Ollie Ollerton, Harry Mack, Yanik Silver, and Evan Carmichael.

CHALLENGING CHILDHOOD

However, all of the above wasn’t always my reality.

I grew up in post-communist Poland with no money, no language abilities (other than Polish), and lots of limiting beliefs. At some point, I discovered personal development and realized that I could create my own reality. I took my education seriously, bootstrapped myself to a British Business School, started traveling Europe on a tiny budget (often sleeping on beaches and hostel dorms). Even then, I struggled with confidence issues and public speaking phobia.

If someone told me back then that one day, I would live my current life - I wouldn’t have believed. The path wasn’t easy, but no game would be fun without a fair share of challenges. To me, life is like the ultimate game and I’m trying to make the most of each experience, whether it’s up or down.

On a completely different note, I have been a meat-free athlete for over half of my life. The main reason is that I absolutely despise the cruel factory farming. However, I also do feel incredible on a plant-based diet.

If you’ve read till here - thank you for taking the time and I hope that you will enjoy my courses.

Also, always remember - you are better than you often think you are. You just have to learn how to harness that inner power.
