Andrew Carnegie was a Scottish-born industrialist, businessman, and a major philanthropist. Carnegie devoted the that later part of his life to large-scale philanthropy, with special emphasis on local libraries, world peace, and education and scientific research.

The following is taken from one of Carnegie's memos to himself:

"Man does not live by bread alone. I have known millionaires starving for lack of the nutriment which alone can sustain all that is human in man, and I know workmen, and many so-called poor men, who  revel in luxuries beyond the power of those millionaires to reach. It is the mind that makes the body rich. There is no class so pitiably wretched as that which possesses money and nothing else. Money can only be the useful drudge of things immeasurably higher than itself. Exalted beyond this, as it sometimes is, it remains Caliban still and still plays the beast.  My aspirations take a higher flight. Mine be it to have contributed to the enlightenment and the joys of the mind,to the things of the spirit, to all that tends to bring into the lives of the toilers of Pittsburgh sweetness and light. I hold this the noblest possible use of wealth".

With that being said, I have a few questions to ask:

Who is your mentor?  Are they wealthy beyond their money?  Do their minds take the higher flight that Carnegie speaks of in the above paragraph?  Does your mentor measure his/her knowledge as a  asset for sharing and helping. Or can their knowledge only be bought for price?  That is the "caliban" that Carnegie speaks of.  Is your mentor a slave to their money and his knowledge shared only  for a price?  Or do they lead others down the path to riches because of the emotional heart felt fulfillment they receive from your success. Remember a couple of things when you interview your Mentor or Guru...their passion for compassion...and their emotional mindset.  Ask your mentor what part  they are taking in leading you to find the person you want to be.  Is your next prospective mentor a caliban to their money?  Think well on this before you make your decision on your Mentor.

And THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT...does your mentor answer the phone IN PERSON when you call.  MINE DOES!  And this is the valuable book my mentor gave me to point me in the direction of that path to success.  READ IT and save your self years of failure and frustration and TONS OF MONEY
