2016 to 2018 have been the most important years of my life. It was during this time that I had my paradigm shift, and there were some key things that attributed to that. There were 5 books that sparked my growth and planted some seeds in me that began spreading like wildfire.
Going through so many situations in my young 31 years, and trying to navigate all of the societal pressures, it got to a point where I know I needed help. I never really had a mentor or anybody I looked up to, but as I started reading more, I started to believe that we can have mentors from afar. There are a few authors who have really helped me get to a point now, where I am always so excited for the next day, instead of wishing I could just stay in bed forever.
As a mentee, it’s sometimes a task to even know where you need to start and what you need help in, let alone find somebody you can connect with that can actually help you. Books and podcasts are a great way at bridging that gap if you can’t find a mentor and get you on the right path.
