If you are too full, there’s no room for you to learn anything more. To qualify for mentorship you have to recognize your need for input.
A person who comes with an attitude that they already know as much as the mentor can’t be taught.
Proverbs 27:7 says, “The full soul loatheth a honeycomb, but to the hungry soul, every bitter thing is sweet.”
I know that my relationship with a mentee is going nowhere fast when every other word out of their mouth is, “I know,” “yes, I’m aware of that,” and “yes, I already know that.” Some people won't shut up about their qualifications enough to learn from anybody else.
The hungry soul, the one with the teachable spirit, will be filled.
