Mentor. Schmentor. Today my brain is not functioning properly. It probably has something to do with the fact that we are leaving the UK tomorrow, and heading back to NZ, and I have a millionty-one things that I need to get done. However, not being one to give up on a challenge, I’ll give this post a go anyway.
I have to decide who I would most like as a mentor, well, which two people actually, and then think of two questions I would ask them. It wasn’t mentioned whether those mentors needed to still be living or not, and so one of my people is someone who died some years ago.
His name is Napoleon Hill.
He is the author of several books, including Think and Grow Rich, and my personal favourite, Outwitting the Devil. I have found every principle in his books to be true in my own life, and love the insight that he had into life, and into how things work.
Unfortunately I can’t ask him any questions, but if I were able to, I would probably ask him about the path his life took, and how he gained the insight that he did. I would also ask him what it’s like to be connected to one’s higher self at will, and how to go about it.
The other person I would like to meet is Richard Branson. He is a man of such great achievement, and so well known and I’m sure he would have a few nuggets of wisdom to pass on. I would ask him what he would do differently if he had the chance to do it all over again, and what he’s learned from the mistakes he’s made along the way.
We all make mistakes, but what we learn from those mistakes is absolutely invaluable, and I think we can learn more from our own mistakes, and those of a mentor, than we can from any amount of success.
