Here are some ways to help you know how to find a mentor for yourself:
Know what you expect: Once you have a clear idea about your ambition and various life goals. It makes it easier for you to attract people who see the best in you and come forward to provide you with a helping hand. If possible they will also point out constructively your shortcomings and areas of improvement to help you grow.
He doesn’t necessarily be from your field of work: It is not always true that you can get the best leadership advice from people who belong to the same field of work as you are. It is quite possible that someone whom you can least expect can come into your life and blow you away from their amazing life experiences and other leadership secrets. So be receptive to meeting people from all walks of life, you never know who can provide you with an essential life lesson.
Be open to challenges: People who have comparatively smaller goals than you might get you caught in their own shallowness. To seek and yield outstanding results you need to move past those average people and spend more time with people who challenge you and introduce to higher, better possibilities. These opportunities and learning will happen to you only if you are open to challenging yourself.
Ask for it: People with high-end goals will mostly be busy doing the effective work that matters. Meeting people and whiling away their precious time into things that will not add to their personal or professional goals is a big No for them. If you find one of those persons’ who can provide you that support and mentorship, don’t be hesitant to ask for it. Until you do not ask, the possibility to get an affirmation is always zero. Only when you ask for it you allow it to happen to you. The rate of conversion is higher when you ask, so why take that risk when it’s about your life goals and passion.
Deliver to get: Gone are those days when someone will reveal your destiny based on what your lines (palm or forehead) say. Now people invest their time and energy into people only when they see some past efforts put in by you or the results of your personal investment into your learning and growth. Only when they are confident that you can yield some productive results after they invest in you, will they provide you with a chance to peek into their lives and learn from their failings and achievements.
Once you are through with these methods, the chances of you finding a mentor increase by many folds. However, there is no sure shot method to help you find one. In fact, you must try and explore what your strengths are and what works the best for you, only then you can exploit it to the core. Once you enter the battlefield you will find many learned people yourself. So don’t hesitate and move ahead with courage.
