Turn ChatGPT Into Your Personal Mentor

If you had a nickel for every time you heard “you need a mentor”, what color would your Bugatti be?

The reason we hear it all the time is simple: mentors are effective. 97% of individuals with a mentor say they find the experience to be a valuable one. The problem is that a good mentor is very hard to find.

The good news is that we can use finely-tuned prompts on ChatGPT to turn it into our free personal mentor. Here’s how:

1. Tell ChatGPT it is a professional mentor
In the “real” world, when you seek advice, you look for experts in that field. Treat ChatGPT in the same way.

Prompt: “You are a professional life coach and mentor. You have 20 years of experience helping young men achieve their business and financial goals.

You are a skilled active listener. You are motivating by challenging and empowering your clients. You acknowledge your clients’ success and hold them accountable for their actions.”

2. Make ChatGPT ask YOU questions
A good mentor gives powerful answers. A great mentor asks powerful questions. We can make ChatGPT become a great mentor by telling it to ask questions that get to the route of your problems and ambitions.

Prompt: “For every interaction, ask me any question that will help you provide a more effective and personalized answer.”

3. Have a conversation
If you have a general goal, then simply have a conversation with ChatGPT. Its questions can be surprisingly revealing, and will make you consider things that you might not have before.

4. Discuss specific goals
If you have a specific goal, then ChatGPT can help you break down your goal into chunks and strategize on tackling each of them. Here are some examples of specific goals you can discuss with ChatGPT.

  • Social media growth: I want to grow my LinkedIn/Twitter/Instagram/TikTok profile from 1,000 followers to 100,000 followers in one year
  • Public speaking: I want to deliver a speech or presentation to an audience of 500 people
  • Building a business: I want to write a business plan within 30 days
  • Growing a business: I want to increase revenue by 20% within the next year
  • Improving physical health: I want to increase my squat strength by 10% within 10 months
  • Learning a language: I want to speak Spanish at B1 level of proficiency within six months. I am currently a beginner

5. Create daily routines and habits

Achieving any big goal requires consistency and strategic planning to take the appropriate actions every single day. ChatGPT can help you identify the daily routines and habits you will need to develop to achieve your long-term goals.

Prompt: “I want to grow my Twitter following from 10,000 to 100,000 in one year. How would you break this goal down into a yearly system of daily routines and habits? Make the list a daily to-do list, and make each task specific, achievable, and measurable.“

ChatGPT is a free mentor that can help us set measurable goals, prioritize tasks, and organize our life in a way that is optimized for success. For more tips on mastering ChatGPT, you’ll love our guide on advanced ChatGPT prompt engineering.


ChatGPT Releases Its API

Yesterday, OpenAI announced the ChatGPT API. This means businesses can now build ChatGPT into their apps, websites, and products.
The API model is called GPT-3.5-turbo (nice name).
It’s an improvement from OpenAI’s previous API model, so you can expect many of your favorite AI tools (that use the GPT-3 model) to improve significantly as they upgrade their APIs to GPT-3.5-turbo.
It will set you back $0.002 per 1k tokens, which is even cheaper than their existing GPT-3.5 models.
If you thought there were already a lot of AI tools, then strap in. It just got even easier to create them!


Midjourney Photography Prompts

Whether you are a photographer looking to up your game, or a business looking for cost-effective image solutions, mastering Midjourney photography prompts is a no-brainer.

Here are a number of effective photography prompts to get you started. 

Choose a Scene

Incorporating ‘scenes’ into your Midjourney prompts can have a dramatic effect on the overall look of the generated image. Try adding the following scenes in your Midjourney prompts:

Prompt: Cinematic

Prompt: Blue hour

Experiment With Different Camera Lenses

The lens is responsible for the width of the scene, and the depth of field. As such, using a different lens has a huge effect on the look and quality of your image.

Prompt: 360 view of a real estate property realistic, 8k, superb quality

Prompt: Macro photo of a bee

Camera Brands, Lenses and Films

Photographers use specific camera brands, lenses and films to completely transform how a photo looks and feels. Here are a few examples you can use in your prompts:
Prompt: Polaroid photo of the Banana – Man turbo Sled

Prompt: Beautiful college girl at a library, stylish haircut, full body, detailed facial features, detailed eyes, atmospheric lighting, Kodak Portra 800 film SMC Takumar 35mm f/ 2. 8 c 50, 2018

Midjourney is a genuine, cost-effective alternative to buying stock photography or hiring a photographer to capture the graphics you need for ads, thumbnails, articles and social media posts.
