In the last few years I have been lucky enough to get to mentor in a lot of different events and meet successful mentors from all over the world. There are few things that I enjoy more than mentoring and sharing my experience but what I find interesting about these mentoring sessions is that when you group together successful people and ask them to give advice in most cases you get completely different answers from each and every one of them. So who’s advice should you listen to?

The fact is that there are thousands of different ways to become successful and every mentor you will ever meet will have gone a different path from all the rest. You should of course always listen to everything that any mentor wants to share with you but to decide what advice you should follow should depand on what path you want to follow to become successful. The path can be defined by your goals, your values, your dreams, your style of communicating, your lifestyle, your family values, your talents and about a thousand different things. The key here is find the mentor that has gone a similar path as you want to go and has similar values.

Just remember that the better you know yourself and what you want to achieve the better you will be able to pick a good mentor.
