Everyone can be a mentor.

Everyone should be a mentor.

If you are at least one step ahead of another person on the ladder of life, you have the capacity, the obligation, to be a mentor.

Happy Friday!

After my first three years in high school, the school counsellor invited my parents and me for a routine review about my academics. He advised my dad to encourage me to focus more on the social sciences than the physical sciences because I tended to be stronger in those subjects. I'm not sure he knew that my dad is Nigerian because it had been pre-decided from birth that I was going to be an engineer (Duhhh!🙄)

So I carried on with Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Further Mathematics and Technical Drawing. It was a disaster. Luckily, I resisted the temptation to drop Geography and Economics, but I sadly parted ways with Music and French. Fast forward to my final examinations, I had my worst result in Chemistry; I managed to scrape a decent pass in Physics and Biology; and I didn't even bother show up for my Technical Drawing exam because I was hopeless in that subject. But I got distinctions in Geography and the English Language without even bothering to study much. The school counsellor was proven right. Dad and I were humbled.

I have since advised students to continually play to their strengths and to excel where they are. There's more than enough space in the world for your individual brilliance, and you are not a failure if you thrive outside the physical sciences. Once you begin to feel that you are working too hard for meagre results, there's a good chance you are still discovering your strengths. Continue to explore - do as much as you can, but do the most what you do the best.

We have a tendency to become very enthusiastic about the things that we commit time and effort to achieving. Your passion grows as you encounter progress.

So, maybe stop waiting around for your passion to magically become profitable. Develop your passion, don't follow it.

You need to put in the work. Invest in learning - read, dig deep, ask questions, seek out more information, don't stop. And when you've learned enough, take some action.

Remember - nothing changes over time; things only change when determined people take deliberate actions.
