However, whether people trust a mentor or not, it depends on the kind of mentor they are dealing with. Is he the good type or not?

Mentors could appear experienced, successful, authoritative and influential, but aside these, the good ones people truly trust offers more than these on a deeper level.

Not all mentors work, most of then are all about the watch out for people who are open to them, that working becomes less of a priority to them.

Attracting or building relationship with mentor is never difficult, as long as you can spot one, you just need to make it known to them that you see them as a mentor, and be open to them.

As long as you’re dealing with one with the characteristics, they’ll welcome you and appreciate your honesty, vision, smartness and guts.

Hit points on the benefits of a mentor

Mentors are successful because of their knowledge, positivism, experiences, intellect, wisdom and smartness.

As a result of these, mentors manages to inspire you, motivate you, establish you, boost your confidence, and of course, helps you to excel.

You see, good mentors are like the cornerstone to living a fulfilled life.

According to the meaning of a mentor, it’s someone approachable who can walk you through the right paths to take.

If one doesn’t influence you positively in any way related to this, it means you’re getting it all wrong.

That’s not the right mentor you’re dealing with.

Unless you just really like that person’s company, but if you’re in need of one, then that is a wrong choice.

Your mentors could be friends, family members, spouse, colleagues, elders, coaches, counselors and celebrities.

It doesn’t really calls for a particular position for one to be a mentor, as long as you’re able to find values and usefulness in that person.

Below are the benefits of a mentor you’ll get anywhere, anytime on any circumstance.

Benefits of a mentors

Ready to know the benefits of a mentor? Right, it’s time for us to explore so you can find out what they are :

1. Influences in things you want to be good at

One thing I know about the a mentor is that he doesn’t come out to tell you point black saying “hey, I want to be your mentor”

No, they don’t. what you should really watch out for is how that person seems to welcome you and make feel relaxed.

Also, how he or she listens to you and makes possible efforts to advice you appropriately or give nice opinions on what is best to be done.

All you have to do is to figure out if that person is one who passes subtle hints of solid advise, motivation and inspiration that boost your confidence.

As simple as that really, not much.

What separates mentors from other people who good at something is that, they make sure your openness and honesty to them for advise or suggestions does not be a waste.

They make efforts to solve challenges with things you want to improve yourself at.

Even if they aren’t knowledgeable about that thing (which is rare) you needed to improve, they make sure they have something of value of contribute.

They’re good listeners, so, if you tend to consider someone knowledgeable at things you want to be good at, that will be super!

The next big thing to look for is if the person influences you in one way or the other to be better at those things you had love to do well at.

This is where a good mentor comes in and makes sure you acquire your goals at no cost.

I personally wouldn’t love to be good at something only to find myself wasting time with one who’s not contributing to my success.

2. Influences positively on families

Good mentors are people you can share certain things with and be safe.

You and I know how vital it is to keep family and relationship problems private. In case you don’t know though, am telling you, it’s important.

On the other hand, there are times when you need to share certain problems, but with trusted people actually.

You wouldn’t want to make the mistake of spilling them out to random people that won’t offer helping hands.

Usually, mentors are experienced people who live right, so, the best they could do is to ensure you benefit from all the experiences they have.

The good life they have lived and are living is exactly what they can’t help but make sure you learn from as well.

Knowing the fact that you barely see trusted people you can relate with concerning your family or private life, good mentors will make you count on them about those aspects.

They’re the ones you can rely on when you are looking for ways to improve your family life or private life.

Infact, from their level of wisdom and knowledge, they’re your best bet when you’re thinking of any advise concerning the family.

Good mentors will also tell you how you should deal with certain life challenges.

I carried out a study sometime and discovered that in most of the best families, at least, one member of the family has a good mentor.

This makes it one of the most desirable benefits of a mentor.

3. Influences positively on upbringing

I love the fact that you can’t underrate this when you talk about the effects of an mentor.

This is strictly important for kids, and it’s very advisable that parents should take it into considerations.

Although, it’s not right to choose a mentor for them. All you have to do as parent is to keep a close watch on them.

Find out who they tend to get closer to, pay more attention to and respect.

All you have to do afterwards is to figure out if that person portray’s qualities of a good mentor, like I earlier stated.

If it happens that the person your child is close to is worthy to be a good mentor for your child, encourage he or she.

Also, encourage your child as well, since none of you will be loosing.

By doing that, your child will be cared for, thought how to behave and gain other fundamentals of good upbringing, as he or she grows.

Apart from parental care, good mentoring is another way to ensure a good upbringing for kids.

Remember, it’s all about the positive effects of the mentors on them, so, it’s an addition to what you’re contributing to your child’s upbringing.

Kids don’t just like any random person, something about the person made them to.

As a result of that, they tend to listen and respect what they’re been told by that person they like.

There are certain things kids don’t listen to from their parents, especially things pertaining their upbringing, but it’s surprising that a mentor stocks those in their head.

4. Influences positively on career

Have you been in situations where you can’t seem to make the right choice of career for yourself?

Or maybe you have been having hard times with your career?

This where a good mentor comes in. Remember, I said mentors are knowledgeable and experienced people.

Although, depending on the person you encounter, how inclined he or she is in the career still matters.

Even if that particular mentor is not inclined with the career you have in mind, they’ll inspire and motivate you on it.

Incase you are having hard times choosing the best career, they’re experts at figuring out career best suited for you.

All a good mentor has to do is to put a soft touch to it, and you’re good to go.

For example, if you’re confuse about choosing a career between in music and football, a good one will not just help you chase one, they’ll help you find your purpose.

Apart from helping you chase one, they’ll help you discover your hidden potentials, and you’ll end up choosing the right career yourself.

Their experiences and knowledge will sort things out the way they are meant to be.

5. Influences positively on confidence

When you sum up all the impacts a mentor has on someone, you can see that it should give a boost in confidence.

If you aren’t convinced with that yet, it is important you know that mentors just makes you believe in yourself.

It could be from the way they converse with you, from the way they point out things you’re doing right, and encourage you to do more on things you aren’t doing right yet.

They always believe in you, so, they try to illustrate that to you through words and actions.

Confidence is also important in making impacts in your society, apart from just being confident.

Even if you think the worst confident person, by the time you begin to see positive changes in you from who you chose to be your mentor, you confidence will skyrocket.

Even though it seems like it can’t happen, you will still notice drastic improvement in it anyways.

All you have to do is to make sure you’re open with your mentor, he or she will know how to give you confidence boosting words and actions.

Its like a skill to them, that’s why you will always appreciate them, because you will get to learn a lot from them.

Wrap up

Good mentors are crucial in human race and development.

The good one’s has a good degree of qualities you should take note of, especially when you are in need of one.

Be yourself. He or she should get hints that you value their relationship, opinions, advise and time, then getting close to one will be super easy.

They’re important. Companies need them, team needs them, everybody needs one, and so do you.

Build good relationship with one you admire, be open to them, listen to them, learn from them and let them influence those aspects of your life colorfully.
