15 Nuggets on MENTORSHIP (Leadership Wisdom)

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

There has never been a greater time in our generation where the need for Mentorship was most important. I am reading a book called ‘Leadership Wisdom’ by my good friend Simbarashe Nyamadzawo in which he writes;

“Mentorship is a personal development in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person.”

I asked for his permission to share with you 15 small nuggets on Mentorship that he shares in this mind blowing, small 43 paged book that has absolutely changed my life this November. 

Pearls on Mentorship
~ 1 ~
The shortest way to greatness
is to sit at the feet of great people and allow them to teach you and instruct you.
~ 2 ~
Mentorship will help accelerate the manifestation of the greatness that has been deposited in you by God.

~ 3 ~
By providing you with a model, advice and counsel to follow, a mentor will help you to avoid making the same mistakes they made and succumbing to the same struggles that they faced along the way.

~ 4 ~
It is hard to improve when you have no one but yourself to follow. (Dr John Maxwell)
~ 5 ~
Pay whatever price to follow your mentor. It is worth it. (Ruth and Naomi)
~ 6 ~
Let your destiny be a guide when choosing a mentor. Do not submit to someone simply because they are the person of the moment or famous but rather submit to someone because he or she has something you need for your destiny.

~ 7 ~
Mentorship is a privilege and therefore should be treated as such because a mentor will introduce you to his or her network of interaction. He or she knows more great people than you do.

~ 8 ~
A mentor will help you discover and maximise your potential
~ 9 ~
Motivation can help you find what you are ‘capable’ of doing and tell you you can do it. Mentorship however helps you find what you cannot do and will tell you you can do it!
~ 10 ~
Your friends are more concerned with your pleasure and current affairs. Your mentor is concerned about your destiny and future.

~ 11 ~
You must learn to invest in the literature (books/CD) of your mentor. Whatever they have spent years researching, learning and experiencing; you get to learn in the comfort of your own home. A transference and impartation begins to take place as you listen.

~ 12 ~
Your mentor does not know everything, but they do know something that will transform your life, therefore value and treasure what they say by keeping records.

~ 13 ~
Seeking mentorship is a demonstration of humility
~ 14 ~
Your mentor is not your ceiling but your launch. Do not strive to be exactly like him that’s identity crisis fuelled by mediocrity because you have the privilege and obligation to exercise your uniqueness.

~ 15 ~
There is no space for lone rangers in the success zone.
