The major turning point in my life was when I started being mentored by a business executive.  Have you ever been to the place where you thought life was not worth living and you found it hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel?  I’ve been there.  Sometimes life knocks us down repeatedly and we don’t know what to do about it.  My mentorship was the single most important factor in my transformation.  My mentor saw my potential. Not only did he see my potential; he worked diligently along with me to reframe my thoughts and to develop my talent and skills.  The truth is had it not been for this mentorship, I have no idea of where I would be today.

The major turning point in my life was when I aligned myself with my mentor.  My mentor saw my potential and realized I didn’t fully understand my talent.  I’m sure you have someone in your life that has at some point or another told you there was something special about a skill or talent you had.  Did you listen?  When my mentor first told me his observations, I was in disbelief.  I could not believe that the person he was talking about was me.  He took a chance on me and challenged me.  I was already at rock bottom and decide to take a chance on him.  I thought to myself “how much worse could it possibly get?” I’m forever grateful that my mentor approached me, coached me and made me see how limitless my possibilities are.

“Nelson Mandela – was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. In 1962, he was arrested, convicted of conspiracy to overthrow the state, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the Rivonia Trial. Mandela served 27 years in prison. An international campaign lobbied for his release, which was granted in 1990 amid escalating civil strife. He was the country’s first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalized racism and fostering racial reconciliation.”
