Daily Leadership Thought #65 – Everyone Needs A Mentor


No one rises to the top alone.  No matter how successful you are, everyone needs a mentor.  More than one is even better.  It’s easy to fall in love with your own opinions and limit your intellectual breadth to your own world view; however it also stunts your growth personally and professionally.  A good mentor will ensure this does not happen by providing an objective opinion regarding your ideas, decisions and actions. They can be an invaluable resource as you tackle the inevitable challenges and seize the inherent opportunities in life.   I’ve always believed that a common characteristic of truly successful people is that they are very aware of what they know and do not know and seek help from the best people they know (or can find) with the latter.  They also prefer to be challenged rather than surround themselves with people who only tell them how wonderful they are.   I encourage you to identify and reach out to a mentor on a semi-regular basis.  Trust me; it will make a big difference.
