Aside from family responsibilities, church needs, and job/schedule changes there comes a time when one has to realize that their dreams must at time be put on the back burner so that the dreams that are bigger than they are can develop.

After a long hiatus I'm back. I assure you I did not want to go, but necessity called and I had to answer. It's this little thing called priorities and responsibility. Aside from family responsibilities, church needs, and job/schedule changes there comes a time when one has to realize that their dreams must at time be put on the back burner so that the dreams that are bigger than they are can develop. I have found to, that in order for your dreams to gain momentum, or forward motion of any kind, there must be a yearning within to see the dreams of others come to fruition as well.
 
No man is an island and we all have areas of expertise that can help the next guy. By doing so, we in turn gain experience and a sense of accomplishment that cannot be felt and internalized by merely climbing the mountain alone. 
 
Can it be done? Can one really climb to the top all on their own? Yes! But, what if when you reach the top you have no one to share in your victories, or worse yet, to help you to cope with coming back down. 
 
One famous climber had trained his entire life to be the one to climb Mt. Everest, only to find that when he'd reached the top he was lonely and even contemplated suicide. You would think that after conquering the mountain he'd been on a high, but the famous words he spoke to the reporter who'd interviewed him was this, (paraphrased) "I'd trained my whole life to get to the top of that mountain. It consumed me, it arrested my every waking thought. However, in all my years of preparation to make it to the top I had never made any provisions to come down."
 
It cannot be said to often or loudly enough, we all need someone else to help us become better at whatever we endeavor to do in life. 
 
And that's what I want to talk about today. Mentorship.  
 
Now over the 40 episodes of this podcast I have continually harped on finding someone who resonates with you and instructed you to glean from them. However, today I want to talk about mentorship in an entirely different way than I have previously.
 
Today, I am speaking to the mentor not the mentored. 
 
It is a commonly held belief that the trainer will learn just as much by teaching a subject as the student will. I have personally seen this in my own life by teaching guitar on the side. When I signed up the first few for lessons I realized that I needed to go back to the rudiments of guitar and brush up on things I'd forgot or "relearn" things from a beginners perspective again. 
 
The results were amazing on both ends. It forced me to go over things I really needed to brush up on and it grounded me, by helping me to remember the whole reason why I even started playing. When I saw the progression of young students and the excitement they had in their eyes when they nailed their first chord progression. Priceless!
 
So, today, my plea to you is this: If you are at a place where you can show someone something that you've learned... do it! If you're a beginner, find someone with less knowledge than you and grow together. If you're an intermediate or expert level mix engineer, guitarist, keyboardist, whatever it may be, reach out to someone that shows an interest and show them what you've learned. I guarantee you will learn something in the process and you might even have a little bit of fun. 
 
Sometimes just having a fresh set of ideas is enough to inspire creativity!
