Leadership is often a test of resilience. John Maxwell states, “The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.” A mentor, in this context, is the compass that helps in adjusting those sails.
Jim Rohn’s wisdom complements this thought: “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better.” A mentor challenges you to grow, to evolve beyond your current capabilities, fortifying your resilience.
Ask yourself, who in your network embodies the resilience you admire? Reach out to them. As Napoleon Hill encourages, “Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.” A mentor can be your ally in this journey of growth.
