Mentoring is not about people’e inadequacy. How often time we (me) forget to see that when people look up to us or consult our opinions ( rare privilege from God)it is not because they want to be like us or is it room for us to try to reproduce ourselves in them. No!
Mentoring is about letting people discover the potentials deposited in them; allowing them to draw out of their wells and not try or force to create mini inadequate versions of our yet to be perfect self.
To all mentors out there, use the opportunity well. Do not insult this PRIVILEGE!
