My philosophy has always been that usually nothing falls in your lap without
some sort of effort or planning, and that no one is going to offer you the
world on a silver platter. Whether in my personal or professional life, in
many situations I have identified or sought out those persons who not only
have the knowledge I desire, but also the time and interest in sharing their
knowlege with me. Mentors do not guide you every step of the way; they are
there to bounce ideas off of, redirect you if necessary, and hold the bar
higher than you thought it was supposed to be. And there is a direct
corelation between what kind of a positive effect your mentor will have on
you, and how humble you are!
I feel very blessed (and humble) that I was befriended and mentored by some
wonderful endurance people. Gini Wilson and James Agnew helped me out a lot.
I am continuing to meet and talk to people who are extremely generous with
their time and knowledge, because they were once where I am. It all comes
full circle, and someday I hope to be able to impart any wisdom I may gain
over the years, to some "newbie". The Catch-22 is that first they have to
ask for help.
