Do You Really Know How to Be A Mentor?

Many of us consider ourselves mentors, someone with knowledge and experience to motivate and propel another person to greatness. It generally starts because we identify with something in another person. In fact, we often see them as younger versions of ourselves. Think of someone in your life you considered to be a mentor. Chances are they were someone who helped you see things in yourself you might not have otherwise seen. They were probably able to be perfectly honest with you… even when it hurt. The other little-known fact is a true mentor will have no personal agenda other than to help you grow and succeed. They also know the mentor secret: you must let go of your ego.
