Filoksenia - The need and significance of a mentor

Updated: Aug 29, 2021

Filoksenia (Philoxenia - Greek) which literally translates to “Friend to a stranger” is the most accurate description of having a guide or a mentor.

We are all living in a fast paced world. A world where genetic mutations are occurring, climate is changing an

d technology is evolving with every breath that we take. And with the advent of the internet, there is a deluge of information both positive and destructive available at the disposal of a finger click.

In such a noisy, confusing and baffling space, it is but natural for anyone to find themselves at a crossroads more often than not. The generations before us have been there and so will the ones that follow. So in this ever evolving strata, the best gift that anyone can have is to have a mentor.

A mentor who guides them | A mentor who inspires them to strive | a mentor who insures that they become the best version of themselves |

We all need a mentor for their wisdom. Someone who has gained experience through trial and error is the one who is wise enough to know what not to do.

So, you might be already having a goal in your mind and are persevering towards it. It could be something like a small wish to score better in exams or a lifelong dream of buying your favourite car or build a home. Always have a mentor who guides you, teaches you to be humble and guides you through your goals.
