Collaborative Journey to Growth with Mentorship

I didn’t know to ask for a mentor early on.

Becoming someone’s mentee often happened by chance.

Either the mentor was committed to giving back and helping others.

Or we were already developing a mutually beneficial relationship.

But at some point, they made an intentional decision to help me.

How so?

By sharing what they learned from years of experience.

This saved me from learning the hard way.

This also helped me approach my goals with accountability.

Committing to be a mentor takes time.

There’s no guarantee that the mentee will take the advice.

There’s no guarantee that goals will be achieved by a set time.

But when it works out, the mentor and mentee celebrate the win together.

The teamwork and collaborative journey to growth are worth it.


What’s your experience with a mentor-mentee relationship? Let me know below.
