I know how important it is to have mentors. One of the best ways you gain knowledge is to work in tandem with another person who has great skill in what you are interested in learning. This is one of the main reasons why life coaching is so important to me.
Having a mentor impacts my life in many ways.
Being able to find guidance from someone who has a solid knowledge base in what you are pursuing gives you peace of mind and the confidence to try new skills. You watch and learn new methods from my mentor. Plus, you have someone I can call when I have a question or need support.
For these reasons, you will also enjoy mentoring others.
You must be honest with yourself about my skills and gifts. When you encounter someone, who appears to be struggling to do the things that you are good at, you offer support and guidance.
In addition, my own performance is enhanced when I help others learn my skills.
You will stand taller and take more pride in your work because you mentor others. In essence, your life is more fulfilling and enriching because you am open to mentoring.
Today, I know I can share some of the information and know-how I have with others. Whether it is guiding someone working on a project at work or helping a teenager to learn a new craft or skill, seeking to be a mentor to others is important.
