Why You Deserve to Have Good a Mentor

having a mentor

“Never take gold advice from a brick maker.” These words from Napoleon Hill in his classic book “The Richest Man in Babylon” resonate deeply with me, and a mentor couldn’t say it in a better way! ✅

Do you ever find yourself seeking guidance but feeling like you’re receiving advice from the wrong people? Perhaps you’re pursuing a passion or a career path that no one in your immediate circle has experience in. For me, it was the dream of becoming a writer in a family where the typical professions were doctors, engineers, and government officials. It’s not a knock on their intelligence or capabilities, but asking a doctor for advice on writing would likely yield little more than a blank stare. And the same goes for me – if someone asked me to perform surgery, I’d be utterly clueless.

So, where does that leave us?

It leads us to today’s topic. Any guesses?

No? Well, let’s find out together. Let’s dive in…

Hello and welcome back to my 8 Habit 8 Week series. Can you believe that this is going to be the last blog? It’s bittersweet – sad that it’s coming to an end, but also excited to move on to new ventures and bring fresh perspectives to the table.

First and foremost, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you reading this blog. Your patience and dedication mean the world to me, and I have immense respect for your journey thus far.

Now, let’s embark on the final change we deserve to include in our lifestyle to let ourselves shine. ✨

There you have it…

Have a Mentor

Having at least one advisor can be a game-changer in your personal and professional development. A mentor, typically more experienced than you, serves as a guide through life’s challenges.

While friends and family mean well, they may hesitate to offer constructive criticism out of fear of hurting your feelings. A mentor, on the other hand, provides honest feedback and helps you recognize both your strengths and areas for improvement.

Learning from someone who has already walked the path you aspire to take is invaluable. As the saying goes, “Never take gold advice from a brick maker.” Your friends may have good intentions, but when it comes to achieving your dreams and growing in your career, a mentor’s insight is invaluable.

Of course, failure is a great teacher, and those who have experienced setbacks can offer valuable lessons on what to avoid. However, having an ally by your side can provide guidance and support when you need it most.

Now, the question arises – how do you find a mentor?

Finding the right supporter isn’t always easy, but there are two types of mentors to consider.

Number one: Free Mentors

Free mentors are individuals who offer their guidance and support without charging a fee. These mentors may be new to their field and seeking to gain experience, or they could be friends looking to help each other grow.

Working with a free counselor can be incredibly beneficial. Not only do you receive valuable advice and accountability at no cost, but your mentor also gains the opportunity to test their methods and refine their skills.

There’s no harm in working with a free mentor – in fact, it’s a win-win situation. If the mentorship doesn’t meet your expectations, you haven’t lost anything. However, if it proves valuable, you stand to gain a great deal from the investment of your time and energy.

Number two: Paid Mentors

Investing in a mentorship can be a game-changer, but there’s something even more impactful: having a paid mentor.

When you commit to a paid mentorship, it goes beyond a simple transaction – it’s a dedication to your personal and professional growth. By paying for mentorship, you’re not just a client; you’re an investment. Your success becomes their priority because, for them, losing you as a client means missing out on the opportunity to make a meaningful impact.

A paid mentorship creates mutual accountability. Your mentor is financially invested in your success, which motivates them to go the extra mile to ensure you achieve your goals. Whether it’s offering guidance, sharing valuable insights, or holding you accountable, a paid mentor is fully committed to supporting and empowering you every step of the way.

How to Find a Mentor?

You might be wondering, “Where do I find someone like that?” Well, one option is to start with a simple Google search. Additionally, I offer mentorship services tailored to your specific needs. However, the ultimate decision rests with you regarding who you choose to work with.

When seeking a mentor, consider areas where you are eager to learn and envision yourself building a future. As someone specializing in mental health, wellness, and productivity, I can provide guidance in navigating life’s challenges and unlocking your full potential.

For those just starting out, whether you’re working on your first draft or struggling with time management and productivity, I can offer valuable support. Whether it’s cultivating self-awareness, optimizing productivity, or kickstarting your day on the right note, I’m here to help you thrive.

However, even if you decide not to work with me, it’s essential to conduct thorough research before investing your time, effort, and energy into a mentorship. Miscommunication or lack of information can lead to disappointment in the end.

So, if you’re ready to embark on the next phase of your journey, whether considering me as your mentor or exploring other options, remember that investing in yourself is the most valuable investment you can make. Don’t wait any longer – take that step forward.

As the saying goes, “If you want different results, start doing things differently.” If you choose to work with me, feel free to reach out via email (link in the description). Together, we’ll overcome obstacles, seize opportunities, and turn your dreams into reality.

Want Me To Be Your Mentor & Hold You Accountable For Your Actions?

Email me at khushboo@writefromleft.com join my mentorship program by sending me an email. Whether you’re looking to write your first book, create a personalized schedule, or need help proofreading your content, I’m here to assist you every step of the way.

Hire me as your proofreader!

Why is proofreading your book crucial? When you read your own work, you might unintentionally overlook important details or plot holes. For instance, you might assume certain points are clear because they’re in your mind, but they may not be clearly conveyed on paper.

That’s where a fresh perspective comes in. A third-party proofreader can offer invaluable insights by approaching your book with a completely unbiased view. They’ll catch inconsistencies, identify missing elements, and provide constructive feedback to enhance your story.

Even as a seasoned writer and proofreader, I understand the importance of having someone else review my own work. It’s about gaining that objective perspective to ensure your book is polished to perfection.

If you’re interested in my proofreading services or joining my mentorship program, don’t hesitate to reach out via email. Let’s collaborate and bring your creative vision to life!
