Sit down and compile a list of mentors in your life.
For the purpose of this exercise, exclude familymembers.
• Once you have compiled this list, take a moment to thankeach of these people for the gifts that they have givenyou.
• Now the tough part. Think of how you have used theteachings of your mentors to help other people. If yourmentors could critique your efforts, would they bepleased? If so, keep on doing what you are doing. If you don’t think they would be pleased, what changes could you make to have them smile down with you and say:“Good job!”
