In the Shade of a Mentoring Tree
There is an ancient Greek Proverb that says:
“A society grows great
when old men plant trees
whose shade they know
they shall never sit in.”
In a Mentoring society there are many trees. Each mentor can't be everything for their mentoree. The greater the network of mentors - the greater the shade for the mentorees.
A mentors job is to help students become learners with a desire to become teachers. A mentor driven by compassion will infect mentorees with a passion to spread gratitude by serving others.
Duplicity in sharing pays dividends of sustainability through a foundation of multiplied contributions. Mentors teach forward. Mentor unto others as others have mentored unto you.
Thanks for your time.
Go do something nice for somebody.
