My mom called me the other day, asking for directions and I was so confused because her car comes equipped with a navigation system. Even if she didn’t have one in her car, she has GPS on her phone as well.
So I said to her, “Mom, why don’t you just use the GPS in your car or on your phone? It will guide you straight there.” Her response?
“I don’t want that lady talking to me.”
After I stopped laughing hysterically, it really made me think. My mom was unwilling to be guided to her destination because she did not want someone talking to her and telling her what to do.
How many of you are missing out on having mentors and coaches help guide you, all because…you don’t want “that lady” talking to you?
I mentioned in my last post, how this generation has a huge problem with accountability.
Because I’m grown!
I’ve got this.
This generation has a rise in entrepreneurs and influencers. With one-click and enough followers, anyone can become the next “big thing.” I believe this generation has an amazing space and opportunity to do things that generations before us, never even dreamed were possible.
Yet, we’re missing out one key element that has proven results: mentorship and coaching.
Mentorship is vital in your pursuit to purpose!
Everyone I know who has a mentor, has shared how the encouragement, relief, support, and wisdom they have received from their mentor, has helped them excel in their goals and purpose.
Who do you have in your life that can do that for you? And I don’t mean a positive friend that you pray with. A mentor is not a prayer partner.
A mentor is someone who will push you past your comfort zones, identify your fears, encourage you to go after your goals and dreams, they’ll give it to you real when you’re not on track and they are they for you to glean from.
I believe a mentorship works best if it’s someone who has some wisdom and experience that you don’t have; if they’re older than you that’s great, but they don’t necessarily have to be. A mentor should be someone who has gone where you’re trying to go whether it’s career-wise, in spirituality, relationship, financially, etc.
What’s happening now is that we’re all taking advice from our peers, who are in the same sphere as us. Wouldn’t it be easier to have someone above you, show you the ropes and help pull you up?
I’m praying that you identify your GPS, someone who can mentor you and guide you to your purpose destination. Also, I hope that you would take your eyes off of you, for just one second, and look for someone who you can mentor!
You have wisdom and life experiences that can help someone who is heading where you are now.
I want all of you to reach new levels and new spheres of influence in 2018.
