My Mentor Is A Drug Using Scam Artist In Need Of Anger Management

Judith Dejino

21 Aug 2014

Learning is an on-going part of life. The strength of Judith's article is as a reminder that we continue to learn about ourselves from the most unlikely of sources.

In Judith's story, we see the mentor learning about themselves from the very person she was mentoring.

Irrespective of roles in life at any one time, I believe we can take a lot of positives from Judith's Lessons of Success illustrated below.

Lessons for Success

My mentors are teaching me to...

  • Keep showing up because it benefits both them and me.
  • Face challenges and find solutions in areas that I know nothing about.
  • Come prepared, but be agile.
  • Expect more from myself because they expect more from me.
  • Understand how I am influencing those around me which requires me to individualize my approach based on their needs.
  • Learn from everyone - those above, below and to the side of me.
  • Seek to understand before making assumptions.
  • Do it even though it is uncomfortable at times, so I can learn.
  • Believe in my abilities which are validated in every successful step I have influenced.
  • Be humble - you never know what gifts will come your way when you let down the walls of ego.
  • Realize that sometimes all that is necessary is to validate someone's worth.

In fact, the article itself is worth a read if you are interested in learning more about the world around you.
