What are you waiting on to impact someone’s life meaningfully? If you know the way, start showing others the way.

Who are you going to be a mentor to? Think about it because the need is there.

A mentor can change someone’s life forever. Besides, how awesome would it be to change someone’s life for the better? Priceless, and it’s a good feeling when someone tell you or say publicly that if it wasn’t for you, they don’t know if they would’ve made it or avoided the many pitfalls others weren’t able to. By being a mentor comes with more than experiencing a good feeling from your deed. You too may have been mentored by someone who has helped with making your life better. On the other hand, you may not have been mentored, but you can still be the mentor you wish you had.

“The greatest gift you can give someone is your time. Because when you dedicate your time, you are offering a part of your life that you will never get back.” -Unknown

 Let’s look at six awesome benefits of being a mentor. Being a mentor can help with:

  1. Maximizing your potential by proving you with an opportunity to step outside your comfort zone.
  2. Enhancing your study skills, and knowledge.
  3. Networking outside of your regular circle of which gives you the opportunity to meet other influential people.
  4. Taping in your leadership qualities, by improving your communication skills and personal skills.
  5. Opening doors of opportunity for you.
  6. Reinforcing habits that make you look good, (not physical appearance) especially when seeking employment.

Someone out there can benefit greatly from what you know, and as mentioned above, you too will benefit greatly from the endeavor. Will you take the pledge to make a difference in someone’s life? Remember, the position you hold doesn’t matter. If you know the way, show the way. If you have overcome adversity, help someone navigate through their rough time. If you know the principle of success, help someone else to be successful.

In teaching we learn and the more we teach, the more we learn.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.

7 WAYS TO EMPOWER OUR YOUTH

“Good habits formed at youth make all the difference.” – Aristotle

We have a job to do. However, we sometimes like to count ourselves out when we are not in what some people think is a position of influence. Don’t allow the perception of what they think to deter you. Besides, our duty is to empower our youth to succeed. The truth is, you too can empower our youth no matter what position you hold. Remember, they are our future.

Someone is counting on you so if you know the way it’s time you start showing the way.

I don’t know about you, but I know what a little empowerment, recognition, and responsibility can do. If you are looking forward to a better future, let‘s start empowering those who will later become leaders of the future. Remember, have to start from where the leaders of today stop.

Let’s help our youth to remain hopeful, help them to see beyond their struggles and believe in the possibility that still exist.

Empowerment is to empower others to take charge of their lives.

To empower our youth is important and it’s important that we start molding the future leaders now. Here we go:

  1. Equip them with the necessary information/resources so they too can be change agents.
  2. Make them a part of the initiatives that enhance personal development and growth.
  3. Provide them with an adequate amount of opportunity so they can utilize their natural God given ability.
  4. Open to their concerns because a listening ear can help with building someone confidence.
  5. Work alongside them, so they know that they are not alone on their journey.
  6. Encourage them to do what they are passionate about because when you do what you love, you naturally feel empowered.
  7. Recognize their effort and don’t take what they for granted. By doing so, you’ll make them feel and know that wheat they are doing matter.

We can help them to make a difference while making a difference ourselves, but most importantly, let’s remind them that “no one can make them feel inferior without their consent.” We have a job to do and let’s do it!

We may not reach them all, but we can empower one youth at a time.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.
