GIVE THEM SPACE
No one can be everything you want them to be. It's not your job to create a clone of your own character in the person you are Mentoring. You are not a potter with a piece of clay.
You are more of a chef who creates a meal and presents it on a plate for consumption. Do not force feed your personal beliefs into anybody - that causes resentment. A good Mentor presents food with a vision that shows why consumption would be beneficial.
The best kind of motivation is self motivation. Season the meal that you're offering with encouragement. You cannot feed somebody their own success - they have to achieve it on their own."Success cannot be force fed as a meal." Give them a menu, give them the food and let them to the eating. Provide instruction and then give them space to grow.
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody..
