I’ve been lucky to have mentors in my collegiate athletic career and throughout my business career. In business, I’ve found you must seek out mentors that will help you continue down the path toward a growth mindset. Some mentors can only help you so far in life, and I believe that if we consistently find mentors that have more experience than us in the areas we are truly passionate about, those unique and powerful growth moments will present themselves.
When I think of people that have achieved success in life -- whether in sports or business -- I know they’ve had good coaches or mentors along the way.
To achieve success through positive mentorship or coaching, you must first be open to receiving coaching.
You must be vulnerable to see where your weaknesses are and where you’re falling short. You cannot allow yourself to think you have all the answers because you never will.
