Life is the ultimate teacher. With no interference at all, life will teach us amazing things. We will learn to fight and survive. We will learn to desire and aspire. And we will learn about the plight of loss. All those lessons with not a single lecture from another person. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. When we audit a life lived in near full length the lessons would be many thousands. Even when we think we’ve learned it all, life has a funny way of teaching us something else. That’s how it goes. We can’t deny that life is the ultimate teacher.
But we can agree that we can learn so many valuable things from human beings as well. Humans are so evolutionary by nature. We live and we learn. But we also share. And that leads to many people sharing the lessons of their life with others. We call them idols, icons, teachers, and most importantly mentors. Mentors teach you almost one on one how to gain value from the lessons of their life and learnings. We should all have a mentor or two in life. The knowledge we learn from mentors and others can only stand to make us more informed and intelligent in the long run. That goes even for false information. You grow when you learn from a mentor. So who is your mentor and what have you learned from them?
Here’s my thoughts on who my mentor is and what I’ve learned from them.
Man I can’t even do this question today. It sucks to say that I might let my whole streak down just like this. A whole two hundred plus days just to quit for no good reason. But I feel so heavy right now. And I just don’t have the strength.
The mentors in my life are everything in my life. I have no single mentor. My mentor is any and evertything around me. I learn from the hundreds of Youtube videos I watch on a daily basis. I’ve learned from Youtube that we should always go for our dreams.
Another mentor of mine is just the people around me. I learn from my siblings , friends, and more. I always admire the things I learn from my mom. I’ve learnt from her that you can do so much more than you think possible. If we listen to our minds and doubts we’ll never reach our full potential. We can always make one more step forward.
There’s a million other things I can say I’ve learned from. But ultimately my mentor in life is everything around me. Absolutely everything.
But I can’t anymore right now. 🙁
