Mentor or a coach, whichever you want to call it. It would help if you had a mentor. The mistake we Millenials make is we don’t see a need to be coached.
Does this sound familiar? “I don’t want anyone to start controlling my life, oh”? I am a full-grown adult, yes, I know that, but you need guidance. You see, when you were born, you did not eat yourself; clothe yourself; you couldn’t even walk yourself. You had to learn all these skills from your parent, specifically your mother.
This in itself is free mentorship; For some strange reasons, adulthood changed this narrative. This is another reason I loved the entrepreneurial community. The community propels one to grow due to the surrounding forces of great individuals within that group. This group is an excellent example, by the way.
A mentor is a guardian, someone who grooms you to become what you desire. Your mother can be your mentor; however, if you are training to obtain professional skills, you need a coach/mentor. There is no great man/woman without a mentor. You can get a paid mentor or a free mentor, that depends solely on what you aim to achieve with your destiny.
If you demand excellence, I will recommend embarking on paid mentorships strictly tailored towards your skill. If you don’t know your skill set or personality type, check on google. “Colleagues are wonderful things, but mentors, that’s where the real work gets done.”-Quote by Junot Diaz. I love these quotes; back to the topic. Find a mentor today and groom yourself to be all that you’re meant to become.
