Risk or REWARD
If you never take a risk you will never receive a reward. The biggest risk in mentoring is in giving up your desire for a reward - that's how you receive the biggest reward!
Most of the folks in a child's life; teachers, coaches, neighbors or mentors rarely get to see the fruit of their labors regarding children. You will never know when your words of wisdom that you spoke into a young heart will grow. By taking a risk and speaking positive words to a child when they seem indifferent at best, you are planting seeds in an unknown future. Those seeds will take root and begin to grow and you may never see it.
If you need a pat on the back, here it is:
WE APPRECIATE YOU!
YOU HAVE BOLDLY GONE WHERE
FEW MENTORS HAVE GONE BEFORE.
YOU TOOK A RISK WITHOUT REGARD
TO A REWARD AND MADE A DIFFERENCE
IN 100% OF THE FUTURE - CHILDREN!
Thanks for your time.
Go do something nice for somebody.
