    I liked this. It made me think though, to be conscious is to understand, and question (yourself mostly) that everything in your brain is a copy, an experience, a thing read a thing saw etc, at least I think. I'm not after clients though but I guess your post got my mind noodle thinking of a bigger picture... see, I often scratch my head quizically on instructions on how to be unique since, well, that's a funny nonsensical sort of thing...you know? I am unoriginal completely, but completely able to express my unoriginality in my own unique way. If someone tells me how to do that doesn't that negate uniqueness? Hmmmm, I wonder if I ought to think of the business utility of all this. Oh, I just did! Why thank you; I best go noodle more, I have this grand Dreamer idea thing to ponder! :)

    #6 Dear @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit thank you for your comment! "...the very mentor who is seeing their mentoring as a gift to the mentee ..." What comes to my mind is: 'humbleness' and 'you always mean well for your mentee (or client, or student, or ....)'. It's a bit Dutchy translation, I use it a lot. I don't want mentees (or clients or my students or my daughter or sister ...) to feel less about themselves because of my questioning/help. So in my tone of voice, in my non-verbal communication, in my questions I want to be sure they feel somewhat uplifted, empowered, mind opened. All towards their goal. THEIR goal .
    This could be the start of the second article @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee :-) (hmm seems tagging doesn't work this time)

    #5 I have indeed seen this manifest within students I have worked with, and while I very much want to tell them and show them that this past which inhabits within them is the past, it is an entirely different thing for these students to shed the weight of these memories, so much so that the most intelligent and also emotionally intelligent among them, cannot engage a speech topic which reminds them of how their guardians or parents took possession of their kids dreams and imposed impossible expectations.

    I have seen students fight through tears when they should be learning how to speak, but one can rationalize what is a significant emotional memory is very challenging. I can only offer the possibility that to live in the present is to honour the presents of the past but give back the unwelcome gifts that these guardians or parents wanted them to unconditionally accept. This is also what mentors have to be aware of - that the scope of their mentoring does not go out of scope. At the end of the day the very mentor who is seeing their mentoring as a gift to the mentee then becomes not that much different to a tiger parent who is occupying their child with their dreams, rather than freeing that human to become the human being they are.

    #4 Thank you for your great ATTENTION to my comment and questions dear @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit. To say I love this part of your comment is an underestimation of its great value. " To see a person and take interest in them, for me, means not taking possession of them'. This is of a great concern in our countries where parents do this o their kids. Not only these parents possess their kids; more they possess their dreams and dreams.

    15/06/2017 #4 CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit
    #2 Dear Ali Anani I would agree with Ella's assertion "interest in them as a person" which for me goes beyond what a person says but what they themselves do not know that they have said. This is why I find the whole notion of personal brand troubling because we are constantly trying to read into people. To see a person and take interest in them, for me, means not taking possession of them. The reason I want Ella's buzz to be put in front of our clubs students is that I share her way of being where she says "no judgements, just imagine yourself to be in his/her place" so long as that imagining is not an occupation of the other. People who can occupy a being are actors and there are brilliant actors who can become the other, but equally important is in respecting who that person is, rather than touch the possibility of entertaining a spiritual egotism.

    What Ella does not touch on is the whole notion of elevating mentoring to a mythic level. We need to find some humility to know when mentoring is the wrong thing to believe in - and as a belief it dominates psyche just as much as a religion does. That is an entirely different conversation though.

    Now dear @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I come to the question you raise about e-learning. E-learning is a highly credible form of learning - and we are doing e-learning here rather than commenting, but there is a much different correlation between e-learning and mentoring - the relationship between the two is ATTENTION. Unfortunately we are living in a world where we are both competing for attention and re-directing attention and that is the part of mentoring where we have put our hands on the subject and have made that mentee our personal project - at this point is when I reject this notion of mentoring.

    @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit- I second the comment of @Ian Weinberg and this buzz offers the reader a "moment of lightness". I have a question though. You wrote " interest in them as a person, not only for their "problem/still-have-to-learn" issues". In view of this I ask for your opinion on the validity of e-learning!

    What do you need help with? Silvia was frustrated about being stuck with her business. She wanted to sell it, but it wasn't shifting. I knew I could easily guide her to discover, for herself, what was required to achieve her desired outcome.

    ONE CALL was all it took.

    By the end of the call, she was crystal clear what the issue was, AND the solution. Her testimonial's below.

    Who am I?
    I'm a clairvoyant healer who can see, within minutes, what the block is that lies in the road to your success. & more importantly, where its rooted. I'll guide you towards discovering a solution that's right for you & support you in creating a roadmap for ongoing change.

    After careers in business, management, interpreting & running my own agency, my calling came knocking. Now as a healer, coach, consultant & trainer, spotting the patterns in people's behaviour & facilitating change is what excites me.

    If you seriously need to smash a goal - the deadline's making you sweat during the day, it's keeping you awake at night AND you're looking for support, message me to arrange a 15 minute free discovery call, to see if working with me is right for us both.

    Here is a great example of natural spontaneous tremoring. It is obvious this isn't a pathology. The woman is present,engaged, and reacting. I share this so that we can normalize this experience. Her fight/flight system had been activated, and rightly so. Her body responded to that level of activation normally, and rightly so. Read the whole experience, and her emotional responses to what was happening.

    People tend to stifle this response. That has consequences, and that's why we teach TRE.

    Thank you @๐Ÿ Fatima G. Williams - one thing that I try to do in growing my business - is to help other female entrepreneurs, like me, who are starting off. Just an example this morning, one of my boutique customers reached out because she loved that I started my own clothing boutique and wanted to know if I would answer some questions as she was launching a boutique herself. Now someone else might have said "no", because we are competitors - but, I really thought that it would have been nice if I had someone when I was starting out to talk to - so I wanted to help and answered all her questions.

    #5 Nicole Chardenet: Well said. I agree with every point and yes, let's hope a turning point has been reach when enough is enough. Why? Because it seems it's not only men who are unhappy - women are too. However it is us - we put many men in the position they now find themselves. So it is up to us to invite them back. Let's hope we achieve this soon. Fingers crossed.,

    That made absolute sense and thank you for your complimentary comments. And yes, 'when too much is too much' or when the pendulum swings too far over and stays there - then sometimes we can get stuck in opposing positions which isn't always healthy for any of us.

    As the mom of three sons, I really hear you Deirdre. Thanks for voicing your opinion. Somewhere along the line, feminism got confused with man-hating.

    "Men are not just human reproductive machines. They have important and valuable roles to play within relationships and within families too." Ahhh--so true. I am a proponent of meisim. I refuse to be defined by my gender.

    Feminism isn't always good for women either. Many of the antics of popular feminists lately have caused me nothing but problems in the work place.

    Much agreed, Deirdre. I think 'victim feminism' - where women identify with powerlessness and being chronic victims - is a mindset long past its expiry date. Time for a more mature 'power feminism' where women identify with power and recognize they have a helluva lot more power than they had fifty years ago. I think 'women's-only' groups are archaic...I wrote a post about it recently here on beBee. We've challenged men to get right with the other half of the human race, now it's time for women to do the same...enough already with the 'safe spaces' and 'microaggression' nonsense. Intelligent, rational men (not the whiny alt-reich Trumpanzees) need to be able to speak out against the very real abuses of men by feminism. It HAS gone too far in some cases. Women need to start listening too, and stop playing the victim card so much.

    For 40 years, y'all have yelled, screamed and shouted - Women need Men, Like a Fish needs a Bicycle.
    Thus, there should be No Men for You. No time, attention, help, consideration, finances, property, assets, concessions nor children for you - or the society that has stood by complacent. We have a direction - and it is out, away, gone & done.

    Thanks @Deidrรฉ Wallace - love this. Very well written. I am not against 'gender equality' but I feel sometimes it goes to far. We all have roles to fill, and it doesn't really work if we all try to fill the same ones...!

    Oh, I liked this. It got me thinking: "when too much is too much," and, "allow men to be men," stuck out for me so please pardon my reduction, but what if patience is a virtue period, for all humans, and what if so much of what we say are 'men' and 'women' regardless is a societal construct and not a biological fact? Truth be told, I love what I interpreted the gist of your article to be as I am wary of the extremity of feminism and believe in humamism, but I am equally wary of the dialogues we choose (your Mother sounds wonderful!) to use surrounding such discussions. I appreciate good people period. And I appreciate that each and every single one of us is capable of good choices. You know? Hope that made sense. I enjoyed this; it clearly made me think, thinking is good, I think. ๐Ÿ˜‰
