Personal Development, Business, Finance, and Investing for Everyone
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
Your mentors in life are important, so choose them wisely.
A mentor is someone who tells you what is important and what is not important.
I love learning from people who are already where I want to be. One of the most powerful things you can do in your life is to choose a mentor. When you make this choice and then take action on the wisdom you learn, well, that is when you build a legacy by design.
Hang out with people who can inspire and motivate you.
In fact, the Bible tells us some verses about mentoring.
Plans fail for lack of counsel,
If you seek wise counsel, you multiply your chances for sound decisions.
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise,
Choose your Mentors wisely. Stay focused and disciplined.
Your mentors in life are important, so choose them wisely. Find a great mentor who believes in you! If you want to go somewhere, it is best to find someone who has already taken the journey.
For example, if you decide to climb Mt. Apo, obviously you would seek advice from someone who had climbed the mountain before. So, what to look for in a truly great mentor? Sharing you below are the qualities of a great mentor.
A Great Mentor Challenges You
A great mentor always pushes you to be better and never lets you rest on your laurels.
A Great Mentor Is Experienced
Your mentor should have a ton of relevant experience and wisdom they can draw upon.
A Great Mentor Is Invested In Your Success
A great mentor is happy to see you succeed and even potentially surpass them.
A Great Mentor Guides You Toward The Answer
Mentors should never just give you the answer, but give you the tools to figure it out yourself.
A Great Mentor Is Where You Want To Be
Choose a mentor that shares the same vision of success as you.
A Great Mentor Provides Constructive Feedback
Your mentor will praise you when you've done right and most importantly, help you figure out what went wrong.
A Great Mentor Supports You
A great mentor will pick you up when you stumble and fall.
A Great Mentor Respects You
A great mentor should never look down on you and instead see you as their equal.
A Great Mentor Is A Great Listener
Your mentor should be willing to listen to more than just their own opinion.
A Great Mentor Is Available
A great mentor should always be available to provide the help and advice you need.
As you pursue your dreams, don't be afraid to make mistakes (except the kind where you hurt others). Remember, every mistake you make is one step closer to success. So take risks. Again, look for mentors so you need not make foolish mistakes. Their wisdom will mitigate your risks and make your adventure more exciting. Choose your mentors wisely. Be careful from whom you take advice. It is one of the most important thing you can do.
Also, don't listen to people who may give negative comments about the new things you are doing to reach your goals. You'll get a lot of these, especially from those who are frustrated because they're stuck in their own lives.
I totally believe that you can have that life you dream of. Work on digging out that treasure inside you.
Live for something bigger than yourself! Chase your dreams and goals in life.
Pray and ask God for wisdom, direction and guidance. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.
