And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.
~Haruki Murkami

I ended the previous post with a talk about the journey. Most of us start our professional journey wanting to get to the end as soon as possible. As logical as that might seem, I think it is shortsighted for two reasons.

  • I’m not sure we’re ever at the end. When we achieve what we want, many of us find there is more to learn. More races to run. More mountains to climb. Just more to do. I don’t believe there is an end, just a next stage.
  • The experiences you collect along your journey matter. If you are open to it, you will learn a great deal from those trials, those achievements, those delays, those mistakes, those opportunities. No class will ever duplicate those experiences.

But I think you will benefit from help along the way.

The quote above? Haruki Murkami wrote one of my favorite running books, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. I agree with him that you will make it through your storm a different person. Having a mentor can help with this transformation. I believe in mentorship, it has helped me tremendously, and I hope through this series you appreciate its many benefits

Below are some mentorship resources that might help you in selecting a mentor to help you through this journey you’re on.
