Let us begin by creating a short scenario. You are walking down the streets of London admiring the view; you see all the designer shops and fast cars driving past you. In this moment, you realise that you want a lot of things – designer clothes, a new car, a big house – but you are uncertain as to how you will attain these things. You then become overwhelmed by feelings of uncertainty which eventually lead to you feeling lost and confused. It is in these moments that you realise that you are lacking guidance and feel as if you cannot achieve your goals on your own. Returning back to reality, this situation is one which many people many be faced with (though it may occur to them in a different location). As humans, we can often be overwhelmed by what we face on the outside world and, hence, feel like we do not know where we belong. It is in these situations that we should say “I want a mentor”. By admitting that, you are moving one step closer to achieving success by seeking the guidance that you need. Saying “I want a mentor” is not a sign of weakness; in fact, it is highly courageous to show that you need some sort of guidance. Let us hence look at some cases in which one may say “I want a mentor” and what one can do in such situations.
I may want to seek the help of a mentor if I am lacking motivation. This is something that happens to all of us at some points in our lives. For the most part, we are able to get on with school or work when we are faced with it. Though it may be difficult on some days, we manage to survive and achieve what we need to achieve. In some cases, however, we struggle to even fathom the idea of school or work – we feel so demotivated that we don’t even want to think about what we need to do. In these situations, it is wise to say, “I want a mentor”. A mentor could help you to re-realise your goals and give you the confidence (and motivational) boost that you need.
What is more, one may say “I want a mentor” when one is struggling to build a life plan. A mentor has the ability to help you plan your goals effectively, in the hope that this will lead you closer to success. You may also want to seek the help of a mentor if you’re struggling with pressurised situations because a mentor will be able to give you tips to overcome your anxiety and other difficulties.
In conclusion, I hope to have highlighted a few situations in which one may say “I want a mentor”. If you say, “I want a mentor”, be confident in the fact that things will get better. Do not be disheartened by the fact that you need help. For more information on when to say, “I want a mentor”, or on mentoring in general, visit https://www.selfmadebook.uk/mastermindgroup/
