Mentor - The Ultimate Godfather

“Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it “ - Publilius Syrus, Syrian-Italian writer of maxims,1st Century.

Being born in these fortunate times, young people like us have opportunities and options everywhere but the one who can find an able charioteer to steer one’s life chariot through the intricacies of personal or professional landscape, is the luckiest one.

We look up to him. We admire him .We love him for his instinctual but insightful advices .We trust him .We have higher faith in his abilities. We try and copy him in everything he does. We want to be HIM someday.

The one who is right there when we need him the most.He is our ultimate Godfather.

He is the one who creates a lasting legacy and leaves greater impression in our mind. He remains kind and extremely supportive to us .He who helps us to take us through the path of self discovery and make us realized our true potentials. He has the biggest transferable commodities called Exposure and Knowledge and he shares it with us without any prejudice.

Everyone looks for such an ideal in someone whom he respects and follows throughout the life. An experienced and trusted advisor, who keeps on influencing and guiding us through. I firmly believe that he is our role model – someone we see on a daily basis and learn from him.
We call him / her our mentor, who can be anyone – Our Parents, The Boss, The Boss’s Boss, A Senior Colleague A Friend or A Relative – A Someone Close to us. One can have single or multiple mentors depending upon his or her choice.

The mentor’s advices are like a bag full of precious goodies. They work as sound framework for critical decision-making. These pieces of advice from the mentor remain the guiding force of our journey.

Mentorship is extremely important and immensely valuable in the journey of life. Lack of experience can only be compensated with a wise advice and inspiration from veterans.

Abilities wither under faultfinding, blossom under encouragement.” said Donald A. Laird

Mentoring supports and encourages people to maximise their potential, explore their hidden skills and improve their performance to be the person they want to be.

It has helped me to imbibe persistence, patience and resilience in both my personal and professional life.

I also have the one whom I look up to and I am sure you all must also be having the one to look up to.
