Whatever I am today is largely the result of people who invested in my life. Whether they were singers, pastors, friends or Guardians,and whether it was through songs, books words or actions they all have shaped me into who I am today.
In every sphere of life there are people who have gone ahead of you, Find these people, follow them faithfully and learn from them.
In case you are wondering “why” this is so important, let me tell you. Firstly, This is one thing most successful people have in common-“mentors ”
Elisha had Elijah
Joshua had moses
*Mark Zuckerberg had Steve Jobs
*Warren buffet had Benjamin Graham
and the list goes on…..
1.Whatever it is you want to do in life, bear in mind that you can’t do it alone. You need someone to encourage and equip you. Someone to motivate and stir you up. You need someone to model the how for you.
2.Everyone needs a role model, a person whose life reminds you of everything you want and ought to be.
3.Mentors can be connectors. Playing a dual role of teacher and connector, a mentor can provide access to those within your industry that are willing to invest in your company, offer their skills and expertise.
4. Mentors have the experiences you can learn from to prevent making the same mistakes beginners make. Starting a business is challenging enough, so if you can skip doing things the hard way, why wouldn’t you?
5.Mentors are free, which makes them priceless in more ways than one. Finding a mentor is quite easy, look around you!
As Benjamin Franklin said, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
