Making a Deposit
By Glennel Hardy
I spend most of my time strategically visualizing or dreaming of things that I would like to see come to existence. At times I love to visualize even those things that others may see as impossible, and dare myself to go after it. The one thing I enjoy doing the most is mentoring. I mentor because it’s a way of making a deposit, and observing someone grow to an exceptional member of society. I myself never had a mentor growing up, but have been blessed to have a few in my adult life.
We can challenge ourselves to make a deposit in someone’s life today. Each one of us possess something that is so unique that it will be exceptionally beneficial to someone else, only if we choose to make a deposit. After all where would we be today, if someone would not have made a deposit in our lives?
