We are on this earth to support each other’s dreams. Every day, we must grow and learn, which in fact is one of our main purposes. As we are growing, we are also acquiring new knowledge that we can pass on to others. One of the greatest ways to help each other is by mentoring. Personally, I have been blessed to work with great leaders who were not afraid to share their experience with me.
There is a special joy in giving and sharing your knowledge with others. The beauty in mentorship is that both mentor and mentee are growing together.
While the mentor is sharing their wisdom, expertise, and skills; they are also receiving some insights from the mentee, and they are seeing new perspectives as well. Being a mentor is the perfect time to reflect on your past achievements, assess your current practice, and find ways to improve and become better. Most of all, mentoring can increase self-satisfaction as you are helping developing others.
Some people are afraid to share what they know as they want to remain at the top. The more you share, the more you give, the better you become. Never hesitate to pass the knowledge to others, as yours will simply increase.
Thanks to all my great mentors, I am still learning and giving back is a must for me. At work, I am currently in a mentorship program, and I was so honored that my mentor told me that she is learning so much from me, while I was getting a wealth of knowledge from her. As her mentee, besides receiving insightful feedback from her, I was able to become more confident. Through her expertise, she saw skills that I did not know exist in me.
At any facets of our life, we need someone to help us reach our full potential. Take the time to be that mentor, share your passion, or simply make someone find their way.
Help someone rise and you will also rise higher.
