Walking with Wise Women

By  |  0 Comments

Good morning Beautiful! The successful, happy woman knows that she must keep learning, growing and improving upon her current knowledge in order to reach new levels, and a part of that is supported by walking with wise women.

My mentor teaches that everyone should have 3 groups of influence: one group of people they are pouring their knowledge into, one group of people they fellowship with on their level, and one group of people they can go to and learn from. On each level, you’re giving and you’re receiving – a little more or less depending on the group, but still, you are enhanced from the relationships.


Group #1: Your mentees: Develop a group of people who you can consistently give back to. Did you know that giving releases endorphins in your brain, making you happy? You can lift your entire mood by giving something to someone else. Shifting your mental focus from you to others is actually healthy and good for you. Having a relationship with someone who looks to you for guidance ensures that you have an outlet to give and keeps you on top of your own personal learning and research.

Group #2: Your level: Your friends and who they are say a lot about you. Many times, you can grow so much that you outgrow your old friends. Usually, you will then have to redefine or release that relationship.
However, you know you have the right group of friends when you have trust and mutual feedback. You should feel confident that this group of people will both have your back, but also tell you when you are wrong so that you can improve. Typically, this group is comprised of only one to just a few people.

Group #3: Your mentor: Having a mentor is extremely important. Not only should single women seek out (wisely) an older spiritual father if they don’t have an active Christian father in their lives, but having an older spiritual mother or woman wiser than you is essential to your growth. You need someone who can help you along the way, who you can call when you need confirmation or guidance.

Having these three groups in your life makes your friendships well-rounded, and happy. Keep learning and growing Beautiful!
