“The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried.” – Stephen McCranie
Think about that… a master didn’t become a master overnight. While we like to look back on our successes, it is equally important to think back on the mistakes we made and learn from them. And while you are reflecting on the lessons you’ve learned that got you to where you are right now, you can probably remember the people that helped you get there. Mentors.
Maybe you had a great mentor that encouraged you, or possibly you mentored someone that challenged your traditional way of thinking. Mentoring is and should be a symbiotic relationship. If you haven’t experienced the joy of mentorship, I encourage you to follow this writer as he documents how he has managed to incorporate mentoring in both his personal and professional life. It’s a great read!
Do you have a great mentor story you’d like to share? We’d love to hear it!
