Most people who desire success focus almost entirely on themselves, not others, when they start to make the journey. They usually think in terms of what they can get--in position, power, prestige, money, and perks. However, I don't believe that's the way to truly achieve success. As Douglas M. Lawson so eloquently stated, 'We exist temporarily through what we take, but we live forever through what we give.' The gift of time through the mentoring process is one of the most essential gifts a young person can receive."
