Why is mentoring important?

Mentoring is no new fad and has been on the rounds since ancient times. According to Indian mythology, there used to be a time where the student leaves home to live with his “guru” who would train him to be the best in all walks of life. This act in today’s world can be compared to boarding schools. However, in all the above cases it is evident that the teacher has dedicated his/her life completely towards the education of a pupil.

We are in a digital age that is constantly needing people to upgrade as soon as possible and to be the best versions of themselves from time to time. May your expertise be whatsoever, there is always an opportunity to contribute towards the well being of another individual. But, what’s in it for you or what motivates you to contribute? Well, if you are not someone who is enthusiastic about sharing knowledge please read on.

On a personal note, I have always enjoyed sharing the knowledge which is probably quite evident from the blog in itself. I have a nephew who loves playing cricket and he is half my age. I visited the ground to play cricket with him which actually caught some attention from the other boys on the ground because I was teaching my nephew to play different shots in the game. This actually led many of the young boys to look forward to each weekend so that they can learn something from me.  

This turned out to be such a beautiful relationship which is beyond any adjectives I can think of. Teaching does not always have to give you something in return sometimes, it is just the relationships and the energy that you will cherish for a lifetime. 

“Teaching is the greatest act of optimism”

Colleen Wilcox

We absolutely believe in good karma, just like how the bible recites:

Matthew 7:12 – “So in everything, do unto others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” 

Let’s give back to society what we expect from them. Feel free to check out the MentorPro platform because not everything can be expressed in words, you just need to be immersed into it.
