I'm Making It: Activities for Weeks 7 and 8
Make it clear to yourself and your mentor what knowledge you seek.
Today, be sure to continue to focus on what you are seeking to learn.
If you meet your mentor, be prepared with a list of the things you admire and would like to learn. Share your story and where you want to grow and ask for advice and support.
Listen...and hear what your mentor has to say. Ask as many questions as possible and take notes. Be a sponge and soak up as much information as you can.
Decide with your mentor how you might continue to reach out for advice and work out a plan for an ongoing relationship.
All of this does not happen in a day. One day falls into the next and the next, and your learning will be ongoing. Keep searching and looking for role models that inspire you, that spark your imagination and your spirit.
Make a decision to mentor someone.
You have so much to teach and share with others. There are local groups that need mentors for at-risk kids, and you have friends and relatives who need support and guidance. Schools and churches need volunteers to help others.
You know what you're good at. Share it with others, and you will make the world a better place.
