More on Mentors
I had the privilege of working with a trio of trainers years ago who all were great mentors, but there was one that was uniquely special in the way that she made most everyone feel, although for me it was life-changing. I recently found some of the notes she shared with me that gave me the strength and courage to find my purpose and set me on a course that led to Alaka’i Associates. Here is what she wrote:
“Aloha Lani, I suppose a long time ago I learned from a very dear friend that the greatest compliment we can possibly pay one another is to take the time and wear their color. I think of your gentle spirit, your soft touch, your willing attitude, your vision to look up and out and beyond, your belief in something bigger than yourself, and the sparkle in your eye when you are teaching and learning when I pause to celebrate you. In ways words would never hold, you have touched my living with your grace and I know the privilege of this. I am celebrating You! I am celebrating with You!”
If you find a mentor like this, cherish them as you never know when they will be gone.
