January is National Mentorship Month! This is the month of the year to celebrate mentorship for professional and personal development for individuals across the United States. As we wrap up January, think of how mentors in our lives have impacted us and how we can continue to mentor the future to make our communities stronger and healthier.
One of my favorite quotes; “We learn… 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear, 30% of what we see, 50% of what we both hear and see, 70% of what is discussed, 80% of what we experience personally, 95% of what we teach to someone else” -William Glasser.
Each year as you look to the future and the goals you hope to achieve in the new year, one cannot overlook how your goals can be enhanced through mentorship. Whether you choose to be a mentor or request mentorship from some else it is a great opportunity to gain knowledge and camaraderie in your goals and support someone else in theirs.
“A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.” -Bob Proctor.
