Nothing Beats An Honest Mentor

Posted by: Jake Larson on April 9, 2012 in leadership, learning with 0 Comments

The most beneficial commitment I made as a young high school student was to have a mentor. From the age of 13 I have been meeting with mentors as a regular rhythm of my life. Many of these mentors have been a formal commitment including a meeting time, place, and curriculum. We were meeting for a purpose and with a goal in mind. Some other mentors in my life have had no idea that I was gleaning powerful direction from their words. These people are indirect mentors. They are authors, pastors, and business men who share their insights with the world through various avenues. I believe both direct and indirect mentors are essential for every person.

Who do you admire? How are they speaking truth into your life? Who is challenging your ideas?

Approach a direct mentor today and begin to listen. Open up your bag of ideas, challenges, and convictions to this individual and be open to critique.

“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.” John Crosby
