During these challenging times, many women are wondering how to repurpose their lives while making a huge impact in the world. One rewarding way to transform your life this year is to share it with others. Have you ever thought about mentoring?
A mentor is a person who advises, trains or shares her knowledge with someone younger, regarding her career or life path. In other words, a mentor is a role model. As a seasoned, mature woman, you have plenty of life experiences, and your gifts and guidance are sure to be valued and appreciated.
YOU, offering your expertise! How exciting is that! Now your first step is to decide which of your skills and strengths will be most beneficial to others. I know—decisions, decisions! Because you have tons of talent, it may be hard to pick just one. So begin by considering what you would truly enjoy blessing your community members with.
Mentoring presents a legion of lifelong benefits to you and to others. Of course, it can provide an opportunity to elevate someone else’s life, but the greatest reward will be your own satisfaction: a unique way to showcase your abilities, a chance to develop meaningful relationships, a reason to expand your understanding in specific areas of proficiency, an excuse to practice your interpersonal skills, and an opportunity for self reflection. How’s that for one lifestyle shift?
Being of service to others adds meaning and purpose to your life. Illuminate your experience and make it available to your community.
Don’t think for one minute that you are not mentor material! You are just what your community has been looking for! Put your life experiences to good use—volunteer your time now!
