Mission BiG : 4 Things To Look For In A Mentor

A mentor is critical in the life of every successful person. Joshua had Moses. Elisha had Elijah. The disciples had Jesus. Oftentimes, mentors won't seek you out ; you'll have to find them. Here are 4 cues in finding the right one for you.

  1. A good track record. Look for someone that has a good history of success in the thing you want to do.
  2. Mutual benefit. Every great relationship will be good for both people. It is never one - sided.
  3. Unforced relationship. Allow the mentoring relationship to develop naturally. Don't try to force someone into this.
  4. Ask the right questions at the right time. Don't overwhelm this person to the point they want to avoid you. Be sensitive to the right opportunities to learn. Most of the time, you'll learn more by observing them.
