I have been fortunate enough in my own life to not only realize the value of mentorship, but to appreciate the efforts and values of giving and learning in one act.
A mentor is someone who is willing to give you advice that isn’t in the best interest for them. It takes a real mentor to put “you” first.
Those who have a mentor in life are truly fortunate. The path of mentor and disciple is one that leads to personal development and growth. Those without a mentor may appear free and unbeholden to anyone, but without a solid standard or model on which to base themselves their lives will be aimless and wandering.
Peace and Love, Jim
