If anyone thinks “they don’t have a mentor” then it is completely false and if someone has their mentor then there’s a hidden mentor too and they haven’t made the contact yet, perhaps it is closest to them.
If we talk about how people choose their mentor, then it is quite simple as they just find a person of their field who inspires or motivates them to achieve something in their lives. But for those who think they don’t have a mentor then; they are just one blink away from their mentor. As their mentor lies within themselves, let me explain this.
A person is a mentor by himself as he/she motivates himself, other people are just a medium who shows a path through which we connect to ourselves and discuss further with our mentor (our self) to decide whether to do something or not.
We are the only ones who decide to get inspired or not, motivated or not, or do something productive or not, everything lies within ourselves and that’s why we are our “own mentor”.
If a person doesn’t know how to connect with his mentor (himself) they should start giving time to himself and start focusing on his work. Must discuss his work with himself within himself which is a difficult task in the beginning. A daily discussion with self will result in focus.
Only focus can lead him to communicate with himself easily and the priority of this healthy discussion with himself must be more focused on the person’s efforts spent on the work. This honest conversation will make a person realize his potential v/s his efforts he put in the work. The mentor’s reply will inspire and motivate him to put more effort and grow in his field.
The person should also keep in mind to pay attention to the mentor’s thoughts because these thoughts are non-other than his hidden wishes or choices that his mind doesn’t process properly due to the lack of coordination and communication between the person and his mentor (himself).
That’s why if you want to lead a life of stable and healthy mental health then you should keep balance and proper communication between yourself and your mentor (yourself).
