WHY YOU SHOULD BECOME A MENTOR
Mentoring is one of the oldest and best-known practices for creating healthy, thriving societies – the first mention of the word “mentor” is from Ancient Greece, hundreds of years before the birth of Christ. And successful societies use it to this day – Maya Angelou mentored Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs mentored Mark Zuckerberg. Virtually all success comes from experience passed down to the next generation.
And each one of us has something to give to someone. If you’ve completed matric, there are millions of school-age children who can, right now, use your advice. If you’ve started a business or successfully got a job, there are millions who would really appreciate your guidance. And if you’ve overcome any challenge in your life, there are millions more who can benefit from what you know.
Every one of us, no matter who you are or where you came from, has some knowledge or experience that will help change someone else’s life. And that’s how you change a whole country’s future.
