Are your equipped with the best skill, have good pedigree and hardworking, yet you are not able to grow as faster as your other colleagues?
Navigating your career and figuring out how to get ahead can be daunting, especially if you’re trying to go it alone. A recent research confirms that 86% of professionals said having a mentor is critical for career growth, development and even finding a right job.

No matter how independent you are, you’ll get where you want to go faster with a little help — and that help can come in the form of a mentor. “Mentors are one of the most powerful weapons for an entrepreneur and professionals for growth in today’s world.
A Mentor Will Get You Started
Whatever it is that you want to accomplish in life, a mentor is going to kick start you on the path to achieve it. By far the hardest part of accomplishing anything is getting started. We all have dreams and goals, but until we make a move to act on them, they will always remain just a dream or a goal.
Mentors can provide a spark, or simple path of guidance to push you to take that first step in accomplishing your goal.
You Learn From Someone Who Walks The Walk
When you have a mentor, you are learning from someone who has already arrived at where you want to be. They know exactly what it takes to get there and what sacrifices need to be made. Experience is an invaluable tool. Experience can’t be purchased, it can only be earned, or shared. A great mentor will share their experience with you to help you achieve your goal in the best possible way they know how.
Mentors Will Build Your Confidence
Anytime you start on a path towards something new, there is going to be a lot of uncertainty within yourself along the way. That’s natural. Simple words of encouragement, an e-mail with a little different perspective, or even just knowing that you have the support of someone in your back pocket can help build your confidence.
You don’t always know the ways a mentor can boost your confidence because it can come from many different angles, that’s how it happened for me.
A Resource For Life
When you have a mentor, they really become your mentor for life. It does not matter if you move up and on, that connection will still always be there. Once you have “made it” there never becomes a point where you know it all and don’t need any more help. When you have a mentor out there, they will always be looking out for you, no matter what the situation is. Sometimes a job might pop open your mentor might think is perfect for you. Sometimes your mentor may even be looking to hire someone themselves. An what type of person do you think they are looking to hire? Someone they know and trust on a personal level.
