As a person, we love exposing ourselves to new things. In our quest to discover the things that will make our heart sings, we did not stop pursuing our passions. For most of us, learning is refreshing and it gives us opportunity to share what we’ve got to another person and impacted their lives. But of course, in every learning there is an experienced and trusted teacher beside us. They are the one who had helped us move our careers in right direction.
Bob Goshen once said, “Leaders should influence others in such a way that it builds people up, encourages and edifies them so they can duplicate this attitude in others.” Well, some people read voraciously and are a beacon of knowledge but they did not even mind helping and affecting the lives of others. Mentoring and helping others has no limit or qualifications. It doesn’t matter if you occupy the highest position in your country, as long as you want to help others. In the video below, you will see how President Barack Obama served as a mentor by guiding Stephen Curry in proper ball-handling techniques and making a volcano.
The benefits of mentoring are far-reaching. Please read on.
Students who meet regularly with their mentors are 52% less likely than their peers to skip a day of school and 37% less likely to skip a class.
Youth who meet regularly with their mentors are 46% less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs and 27% less likely to start drinking.
Seventy-six percent at-risk young adults who had a mentor aspire to enroll in and graduate from college versus half of at-risk young adults who had no mentor. They are also more likely to be enrolled in college.
Mentoring reduces “depressive symptoms” and increases “social acceptance, academic attitudes and grades.”
