Mentor Master Class- Free Tutorial Series 1-10 for Mentors from Jay Parkhe #6


More often than not, we get influenced in our lives by the people we come in contact with. Our actions, behavior, ambitions, and dreams are motivated after coming in contact with them, or after interacting with them.

This activity is designed to make the reader understand the different influences he has had over his life. The reader is supposed to divide his age in three equal parts, and mention them left to right in the table, starting with the lowest age bracket.

Below that are mentioned three types of people. In the row that has “Influencers” mentioned at the left, you need to mention at least three people who have influenced you at different stages of your life.

1st − the people who have influenced you in the first stage of your life.

2nd − the people who have influenced you in the first stage of your life.

3rd − the people who have influenced you in the first stage of your life.

In the same row, keep mentioning their good qualities and bad qualities. Mention as many people as you can who have influenced you over your early life till date.

In the row with the heading Teachers, state the names of at least three teachers who have taught you the skills that led to your success today. Also mention their positives and negatives.

Finally, the third row with the heading Correctional Facilitators refers to those people who have provided correctional guidance to you when you were struggling with some aspect in your life. Mention them, along with their positives and negatives.

The purpose behind this exercise is to de-mystify people and accept them as common human beings. The idea is to understand that these people whom you hold as your idols are also not god, but erring human beings who have their ups and downs as well.

In other words, you can also be someone’s idol despite the shortcomings that you think are in you. All you need is to be self-motivated and inclined towards growth and learning in your life.
