Being a mentor is an ideal way to share your knowledge and experiences with others. Putting new ideas and opportunities into people’s minds and imagination can open up entirely new paths in their life. I wish that I had received the benefit of a mentor during my earlier years, someone to open my mind to other possibilities and not just follow the expected norm.
Since becoming a mentor I have found myself thinking more about my own circumstances, priorities and goals and realise that it`s never too late to change your own personal direction and aims in life.
And would I recommend being a mentor to others? For sure, as the feeling of satisfaction you personally feel after a great session has concluded will far outweigh anything else that you could have been doing during that time.
