As you pursue your bodacious opportunities, you will need a mentor; someone capable of giving sound advice; an encourager, and a rescuer. Unfortunately, too many people give bad advice or fail to encourage when you make a mistake. A great mentor is a rare find. Here are the qualities a good mentor will possess.
Experience: This is not their first rodeo; they are educated and proven by experience.
Wisdom: They have the wisdom to dispense their knowledge and do so without the expectation of personal gain. Their advice is born out of experience and wisdom rather than out of emotion.
Encouragement: They cheer you on when you are the underdog and fuel your courage to move to the next challenge. They motivate you when you are down and encourage you to be extraordinary, unrestrained, and bold.
Loyalty: They are beside you in your most troubling times; they extend a hand and pull you up.
