We said earlier on this site about the difference between mentor and role model,but today we are going to tell you how they interrelated and work together, which we are about to explain in this new topic.
Many of our young people has made some mistakes in the past, while some are about to make same mistake, but after reading this I believe that your life will be positive. Most mistake our youths make are mostly because their is no one to guide them. Mistake whether seriously or costly can be turned around some times, but I don't believe mistake is costly because only a fool will say he has not made any mistake before. A wise man once said "if you don't make mistakes, you don't learn anything new. What makes one a strong person is not running from you mistake, but the ability to correct it and make sure you learn from it and also avoid it in the future.
It is said that we exist in the era of tattered information while we live in the village of technology. Young people are not interested in the necessary information but that which will keep them off the track. Any youth that wants to be positive in life, have to find out the way which people that has passed has done it, where they failed and what bring about the failure. If it is successful then use their good results to embark on their own journey of life. If you ask many of our young people who is your role model he/she will give you the name of music stars, movie stars or football stars. It is all good answers, but a role model is a person who serves as an example of value, attitudes and behaviour associated with a role. This means that your role model must be like the dreams you have in life. Know at least 70% of your role model and that will help you strive positively. For instance one who which to be an entrepreneur must look up to the successful entrepreneurs and know how they get to the top.
While we talk about role model,we must not forget the importance of a mentor because they both works together. A mentor is some one who guides you, advice you and encourage you. The biggest problem of our young people today is that nobody wants to ask necessary questions or get right information from the right person. Young people feels too big to ask people that can help them with good advice, one will say what dose he/she has to offer. Believe me when I tell you that most times the people you never like tells you who you are and how to be successful.
Mentor are of two types, the one that advice you and guide you in the filed your choice and the one who will help you in your spiritual life. A mentor has the experience more than you so he/she is in a better position to advice you in whatever you embark on.
In conclusion, as a young person or a youth find a role model you look up to and a mentor who advice you positively. Be successful as you put this in practice.
