Roles of Mentorship in Leadership and Discipleship.



Good Morning great One!

Having established the importance of mentorship in leadership development, it is therefore imperative to know how to access the right mentors for the realization of of one's destiny.

I know a lot of people get disturbed because they dont seem to have anyone who calls them son or anyone who they can call father.
To state the truth, it is not in the titles but it is in the attitude and actions.

 Therefore it is not about having someone call you names but it is about truly following the modeled pattern of the person you call a mentor and his principles.
Mentoring is far more than someone just caring about you.

Without a mentor in life, one can easily succumb to folly. Without a mentor in life, one can easily become self centred, capricious and arrogant.

The person you call Mentor might be physically present or otherwise

This latter  way works as well as having a direct mentor but removes some of the awkwardness associated with having a physical mentor. A way this works is by following the same principles, philosophies and ideologies of the person you call mentor.

For example, when Martin Luther King (Jr) wanted to replicate the same results Gandhi Mahatma had in India through non violent protests, He traveled to India to the late hero's place and obtained books and some other resources used by the late hero. These he studied, digested and built his guiding principles upon. And he got the same results in America that Gandhi obtained in India.

Location does not matter. What matters is who you follow and what principles you allow guide you. And who you choose to follow might necessarily not be someone still alive but it still produces the same results.


Who (God) will render to every man according to his deeds.
For there is no respect of persons with God. Rom. 2:6,11

Finally Remember that mentors are not there to make us "happy" but to deliberately guide us to the best of their knowledge

Have a blessed Day.

Yours in Progress,
