Every one of us wants to be successful in life, and we know to achieve that, we need to put in the work that’s required of us. We toil, we show up, and we persevere to get to where we want to be, and we don’t stop until we get there. But we also forget that doing everything by ourselves all the time will only lead to exhaustion and a whole lot of frustrations. In many cases, we need good help – and one of the best people we can have for that is a mentor.
There are three main advantages that you can expect from such a professional, the first of which is guidance. In my experience, I have found “you don’t know what you don’t know” to be always true, and if you’re intending to make the most out of your life, there will be a few (or a lot!) of things that you still need to learn. A mentor has been there, and has done that, and they can give you the guidance that you need to move forward and excel.
A mentor can also ensure accountability. It is not enough that we define, write down, and aim for our goals; we have to live them. A mentor will help keep you in check, assess your progress, offer advice where it is necessary, and keep you focused.
Finally, a mentor has access to a database and network that you can benefit from. When you hire one, you also hire access to their connections, and sooner or later, you may find that one of those connections will be the spark that you need to take off to great heights.
