The Perks Of Getting A Special One
Do you have that 'special one'? You don't? Well, you should get one - life is so much better with him or her than without! But before you jump to search 'the one' on Tinder - let me clarify that I refer to getting a mentor.
'The world is full of opportunities', 'If you can dream about it, you can make it happen', 'Get up and start working towards your dream' - all that sounds very motivating. And when you actually get your life's 'blank page' in front of you - and there's one sentence written all over it: the 'writer's block' - how are you supposed to deal with it? So here's where a mentor walks into your life.
Contrary to the popular opinion that a mentor coaches you to become more efficient and more successful in your career, the good news is - mentoring is what you make of it. Whether you need some guidance in business, help in getting through hard times, or getting an honest detailed feedback on how you come across to people and how to address the tricky areas - you can get the progress you want by getting someone who has significant life and work experience to become your mentor. Selecting a mentor is a topic for a different blog post - there are quite a few ways to 'meet' one. So if you are ready for some serious improvements - go get one.
And if 'so you think you can dance' (as in - you think you have some significant life and business experiences to share) - why not become a mentor yourself? A recent article by Forbes explores the benefits of becoming a mentor. You can become one even if you are younger and slightly less experienced than an average person on Forbes' most successful CEOs list. Give it a go.
