“I made a terrible mistake. I’m gonna quit”-Me.
“Help me understand why”-My mentor.
I left my prior company after 6 years of great results, promotions, accolades, etc.
Came to this new company with hopes of doing even more great things.
6 months into my new job and company..
..my VP quit.
..my director quit.
..my sales manager quit.
Pretty much everyone that hired me quit.
The future looked dismal.
I was now completely second-guessing the decision I made to leave my prior company..so I called my mentor.
He listened quietly while I explained emotionally to him.
“Ok-I’m not going to try to convince you otherwise. However, do those people leaving mean YOU won’t be successful?”-Mentor
“What truly determines YOUR success?”-Mentor
“..I guess the actions I take?”-Me
“You got it. Do what you believe is best but remember: your destiny is formed by the decisions you make”-Mentor
I decided to stay.
A few months later, I was promoted and the rest is history.
Life is full of choices.
One choice I’m thankful for is choosing a good mentor back then.
A good mentor can give you perspective in your darkest times and can guide you to make decisions that impact a lifetime.
Do you agree?
