A mentor is someone who sees more in you than you see in yourself.
At first I didn't really know what I wanted so I only found other confused people. This gave me an excuse to hide behind my fear. So put your vision in writing in detail. If you were taking a thousand mile car trip you would likely know where you want to end up. That's your vision or your destination.
How to get there is another story. You want to scream out, " I know where I want to go but I don't know how to make it happen." You are not alone but it can really feel like it. Someone comes along at just that right moment when you need inspiration.
You may have hit a brick wall and can't see your way around it. You feel stuck and don't know where to go. Ah, and then you spend an hour or even 15 minutes with someone who has been there and has successfully scaled that wall, and then you know it can be done. It gives you new energy because a good mentor will see the resources in you that you are not seeing in yourself.
Possible mentors are not likely to throw themselves at you saying, "take me." So here are a few helpful hints to help you find and keep a mentor.
