What is a Mentor?
A mentor is a person (or website) who is an experienced or trusted advisor, usually and older person but not always. A mentor should encourage, advise, inspire ,guide, praise, instruct, teach and influence his or her mentee. I highly encourage you to mentor others once you achieve the experience you aquire in any particular field of life. A mentor should always tell the truth.
Mentoring is pointing you in the right direction so you will make wise decisions about your life. Keep that in mind because no one can live your life for you. You have to do the work of making a plan for you life. We will walk with you but we will not walk for you. A huge part of being a man is forging your own path and growing in the process.
Its always a good idea to have some on your team to help you accomplish that, and yes I’m speaking to you too introverts. You need others whether you believe it or not and in future article we with explain that in more detail. I was always super independent so I never asked for help for anything and that limited me to my own brain. When you rely only on yourself , you have only one perception to see things, only one opinion, no one to challenge you for faulty thinking, no way to tell if you have faulty thinking.
Humans are social creatures even the introverts and we need to bounce ideas of each other. We need other s to hold us accountable when we go wrong. We need someone to see the forest through the trees when you focus more on the problem than the solution.
So the next few posts I will cover social skills, because in my humble opinion, are desperately needed in the west right now. I believe most of our problems lie in social retardedness and we need step up our game and learn those skills again. Take care and we talk again very soon, Victor.
