The reason I have a mentor is the same reason that everyone else should have one. Mentors are our living guidelines to a successful life. They show us a correct path to follow in order to succeed. For this reason, my mentor is Sandra Mauro. Sandra inspires me to become more than I can ever aspire to be.
Sandra Mauro lives a successful and enjoyable life. She is the perfect mentor because she lives a leisure filled life. From playing with dolls and toy houses when she was 9 to snowboarding and playing with the dog presently, Sandra has always been engulfed in leisure activities. The only time in her life when leisure activities were at a low was when she got married and had children, while balancing a job. Yet even after settling down, Sandra bounced back to her original self by becoming involved in new leisure such as crafts and sewing.
Getting the chance to interview such an extraordinary person was truly a privilege and an honor. Throughout the interview, Sandra was very strong about organizing time and money. “Since money can be an important factor in leisure, it’s important to plan it wisely and spend the time in the most beneficial way possible” Sandra said to me while talking about organization. She also commented on how making sure responsibilities are taken care of first will guarantee a better and more fun leisure experience. Interviewing Sandra was a great feat because it taught me to not only enjoy my leisure, but also be wise about how I partake in it.
What Would You Say is the Meaning of Life It has been noticed that Stoicism, as philosophical doctrine, and Logotherapy, as psychotherapeutic method, share many metaphysical premises, which also define the essence of both, Stoicism and Logotherapy. We can say that it the notion of responsiblesness that both philosophical approaches to ones existence are firmly based upon. According to Stoic ...
The one thing that worried me about Sandra’s lifestyle was that she did not believe that leisure is important to you mental and physical health and wellbeing. This is against my guidelines as towards a happy and prosperous lifestyle. However I did like that Sandra enjoyed her work, and considered it leisure as well as a job. Enjoying your job while being paid for it is considered by many to be an ultimate goal. Sandra has accomplished this goal, and has continued to fulfill it throughout her life.
While going over life goals Sandra was surprised in some of the ones shown to her. She commented about the goal of wanting to be the head of a business, saying that it involves a lot of stress and time. She also said however that if successful, heading a business could be very rewarding. A life goal of Sandra’s that she recently accomplished was owning a dog. This feat of hers had been a goal for around 2 or 3 years, and she finally accomplished it this year.
From meeting with my mentor, I gained a lot of valuable information. Sandra taught be multiple life lessons, such as conserving and using money and time wisely. These two key lessons will help me in life, and will help me strive to become a better person. Without a mentor the paths of life would be twisted and turned, and confuse many people. A mentor is a life guideline for many, creating the life goal of following in that person’s footsteps.
