Their talents were noticed and encouraged by the rich and powerful, and this is how they too became world famous.
They have achieved recognition of their talents, but what about you?
You work hard, and are talented. Yet the kind of success you aspire to may still elude you. You may be doing well now, but you know that you are capable of more.

Are you trying to do it all by yourself? If so, you are ensuring that you may never find the recognition that your talents deserve.
Or maybe you are networking like crazy, wearing yourself out attending seminars and events, yet still seem to be spinning your wheels.
Are there shortcuts to success, or does everyone have to "pay their dues" and wait a certain prescribed number of years before they are viewed as the authority in their field?
If there are shortcuts to success, what are they? Are they ethical?
One of the most time-honored "shortcuts" to success is to find and work with clients and mentors who are powerful, wealthy, and well-known.
Some of the most famous people in the world would not be where they are now without the help and guidance of the right person.
Tony Robbins - world famous life-changing speaker - was mentored by author Jim Rohn.
Who was the mentor of Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy's? It was Harlan Sanders, better known as the Colonel of Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Richard Branson, one of the richest men in the world, was mentored by Freddie Laker.
Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey was mentored by another award-winner, Jack Lemmon.
Jay Leno was mentored by the Tonight Show legend, Johnny Carson.
David Shaw, Chairman of DE Shaw, was a mentor to Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon.com
The president of eBay, John Donahoe, was mentored by Vivek Paul, President and CEO of Wipro Technologies.
The list is endless of those who were helped and mentored by the rich, famous, and powerful.
Yet so few know what it takes to become a trusted friend of the wealthy and powerful.
Can Knowing the Right Person Can Make All the Difference?
When Dr. Phil McGraw met Oprah Winfrey, he was already a successful businessman. Who could have predicted that as a result of his friendship with Oprah, he would become one of the most recognizable celebrities and authors in American culture today?
Oprah Winfrey got to know Dr. Phil McGraw when she sought his expert help to prepare her for a much publicized lawsuit.
"Winfrey was so impressed with McGraw that she credited him for her victory in that case. Soon after, she invited him to appear on her show. His appearance proved so successful that he began appearing weekly as a Relationship and Life Strategy Expert.
"In 2002, he was given his own syndicated daily TV show, Dr. Phil, produced by Winfrey's Harpo Studios." - Wikipedia.org
Oprah's friendship with Dr. Phil is widely known. Has this powerful relationship made a difference in the life of Dr. Phil and his family?
Has this powerful friendship made a difference for the millions of people Dr. Phil's work has touched?
If it were not for Dr. Phil's close relationship with the most famous and highly paid woman in the world, he might never have become the trusted expert he is to millions now.

Are the wealthy of this world really different than others?
The answer is yes.... and no.
Do the rich seek to be friends only with other rich people?
Not at all. You can you fit into the world of the rich - and the rich can enter your world - with both of you feeling completely at ease.
You can understand what motivates the rich to form friendships and business relationships.
Do you aspire to be rich? Then it's highly recommend that you begin to surround yourself with others who already are rich.
