Throughout the ages, mentorship has proven to be the fastest and most effective path to achieve one’s goals. Behind the great intellects of ancient Greece and Rome lay a strong reliance on mentoring to achieve success. But in our modern world, the art of mentoring has slipped from our ‘educated’ minds… leaving many people’s true potential untapped. The reality is, we are living through a mentor-famine.
We may have plenty of gurus, coaches and ‘consultants’ with a few motivational quotes in their pockets, but we lack true mentors. We’re swimming in a sea of online courses, Facebook groups and self-improvement books, but people feel just as lost as ever, if not even more so. If these are the keys to success then why do so few people attain it?
When you look deeper, you will find that real mentors are much harder to come by. The ones who have actually been in your shoes, tasted real success, lived through the failures and who have come out the other side thirsty for more.
