As important as it is for teens to have a mentor (read the blog here), there is a danger.
One of my most important mentors who shaped my life in significant ways (although I only spent one week with him) said continuously, "I am not your teacher, you are your own teacher".
My business mentor, whose guidance has been essential, advises to connect with your wise inner sage and make her the CEO of your business and life.
Tara Mohr, who runs leadership programs for brilliant women (i.e. all of us!), talks about the dangers of women constantly looking outside of themselves for guidance, instead of trusting their wise inner voice.
As a mother there are huge amounts of parenting advice and information available for you. But the most important guidance comes from within. You know the best move in every situation. You are the expert.
The best external mentors help you to connect with that voice.
That's why I've created this free gift. Meditation for mothers - Connect with your inner mentor.
This meditation has been adapted from a visualisation exercise which Tara Mohr shares in her book "Playing Big: A Practical Guide for Brilliant Women Like You" which she learnt from the Coaches Training Institute (CTI).
The Anxious to Awesome program for youth includes weekly one hour mentoring sessions with me. Having an external mentor to guide them is incredibly important.
The Anxious to Awesome program also includes weekly guided meditations, journaling exercises and other activities to develop your teen's skills of connecting to and trusting their own inner wisdom.
Imagine developing this skill as a teen.
Imagine your teen making independent and responsible decisions.
Imagine them courageously creating a life full of happiness, love, and financial freedom.
All this is possible.
