For most of us, our parents were our very first teachers. They helped us navigate the physical world in all our clumsy firsts. They gave us the gift of language and helped us see the occasional need for silence. They insisted we share until we could do so without prompting. They taught us courtesy. And despite the heartbreak, they even allowed us our own failures, so we could learn to survive them.
As we develop deeper interests, we tend to choose role models within specific industries or those who hold compatible philosophical positions. Eventually, most of us gravitate toward a single mentor, one with the right gifts to inspire in us remarkable dedication, inventiveness, curiosity, and courage.
See Beyond strives to offer a variety of scenarios and viewpoints. We hope you will discover ways to avoid some mistakes and perhaps merely survive others. A simple attitude shift can make a huge difference. Sometimes, we need to see what else is possible and develop enough bravery to take risks, even just small ones at first.
Our CELEBRITY GUEST POSTS page provides us a forum for offering you the voices of accomplished, established individuals with impeccable credentials. Their ideas have been tested by many entrenched in their respective communities and others exercising varying degrees of curiosity. We thank them for their kind offerings and hope you will discover valuable and applicable wisdom in their words.
Ultimately, you will choose your way. Just remember to consider the gifts of all the mentors you have known and be open to engaging with new possibilities as your needs change. After all, everyone can use a little help once in a while.
