As a leader, seeking and heading to wise counsel is very important to accomplish all that you’ve been created for. One of the biggest mistakes I made in my life was not having diverse high-quality mentors in my life that did not have a financial interest in my success. I was had mentors but I was in a silo. It wasn’t until I opened up to receive additional insight from God and others outside of my point of view that gave me the wisdom and understanding I needed to move forward.
Where do we start finding a multitude of wise counselors? The best place to start is with the Holy Spirit. He is the counselor that Jesus gave us! (Thanks JC! ) After that, we want to have a diverse group of high-character, high-quality mentors. Ask God to guide you in finding those men and women who will help guide you in accomplishing the vision God’s placed in your heart. Most of the time, your vision will fit within the vision of each mentor God has for you to serve.
