As a mentor, you are passionate about sharing your wisdom to support and encourage others toward their goals. You are generous, helpful, outgoing, uplifting, and people are naturally drawn to you. You have a strong desire to not only teach those you take under your wing but guide them on the path to success by sharing your life experience and freely giving helpful advice. You are the wind behind the sails that can carry others to great things.
You are a great leader and a valuable team member, especially when working with small groups or on a one-on-one basis. Your uplifting and persuasive personality shines brightly in leadership roles that require managing the wellbeing of others, and you genuinely care about them. You thrive in a teamwork-oriented environment as an empathetic leader who provides an excellent support system to your teammates.
Others are drawn to you when they are seeking advice, and you are always willing to impart wisdom when you see that someone is eager to learn. People who benefit from your teaching tend to place a large amount of trust in you because they can see that your desire to help them reach their full potential is very genuine.
You believe in leading by example, and you while wisdom is a powerful tool in your belt, you see the value in allowing others to work through a problem on their own. You find it important to not only share the correct answer, but guide others down the path to the right answer so that they learn how to get there on their own. You are invested in those close to you for the long haul and want to ensure that they find a desirable path to continue on with the wisdom that you impart.
You fear being unable to help, seeing your loved ones fail, and being forgotten. Fear is a healthy emotion that alerts us when it is time to get prepared. Fear alerts us to the fact that something needs assessing. When you live in the space of fear it can become paralyzing and confusing. The feelings of anxiety and overwhelm can present themselves as guarded and tense. The opportunity is to embrace the fear as your friend. Shift the shallow breath to a deep breath and ask yourself, “Is this fear justified?” If so, “What do you need to prepare for?” It is also an opportunity to shift your story. Are you telling the story of guiding vs forcing, empowering vs enabling, or imparting wisdom vs criticizing?
