There is an old Chinese proverb that says,
“If you want to be happy for an hour, take a nap.
If you want to be happy for a day, go fishing.
If you want to be happy for a year, win some money.
And if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, help other people.”
Protecting and helping people grow are the most noble of professions. And that is why they can also be the most rewarding. We all have some knowledge to share that can assist someone along their path of happiness. Conversely, we are all often in need of our own Mentors, Coaches, and Teacher to help us define our path.
It is not about creating another YOU; it is about helping them become the best version of themselves.
Here are some of the guides that you may become or are seeking.
Coaches help people achieve specific goals based on individual needs.
Mentors provide guidance in specific areas based on their past-experience.
Teachers provide education on new skills and knowledge based on what they have learned.
Consultants help implement strategies connected to their areas of their expertise.
Counselors provide healing.
As a Coach, Mentor, Teacher, or however you define yourself, remember to…
B – Build your students up
A – Always be Actively Listening
C – Carefully Constructed Feedback
O – Observe obstacles and options
N – Never Judge or Force
Connecting with the right guide can help you navigate your paths of happiness. And for those of you who want to share, you will learn that you will always get more from giving than taking.
