I’m sure you have heard how important it is to associate with like minded folks. Positive thinking folks. Well step it up a notch and get a mentor. Not just one mentor. I actually just realized this recently and it’s taken me until my ripe old age to understand completely how important mentors are in your life. For example, I have a fitness mentor, a riding mentor, and a work mentor. I probably have many more. Am I using the term mentor to loosely? Maybe, but when I think of these 3 specific important people that I have in my life right now, they deserve the title. That is how much respect I have for each of them.
My fitness mentor has taught me already in the short time I have been seeing her to take my time with each work out and not rush the progress. Pushing me a little harder each session (unless I have a bad weekend and just need a good sweat workout)
My riding mentor has taught me not to be so hard on myself and not rush the progress. The two of them really need to meet.
My work mentor? Wow!!! That can be the topic for a whole other blog. Where to begin to describe him? I can tell you this, he is completely supportive of my fitness and riding goals. Why? Because he knows that as soon as I get closer to both goal, it will filter down to my work life. I will be more self confident, happy and successful.
