There are so many colloquialisms about mentoring such as “see one, do one, teach one” and “I stand on the shoulders of giants” and the legendary Chinese proverb: “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day—if you teach him to fish, you feed him for many days.”
If you haven’t already, reach out to someone who has mentored you and thank him/her. Be specific as to what they meant to you, what they did to you help you and how they made your life better – you might be surprised how much your comments will mean to them.
And, if you have knowledge, talents, gifts, resources (and we know you do!) then consider being a mentor.
We’d love to hear your stories and comments!
