Chapter 2: The Beginning (Self-Mentorship & Coaching Philosophy! The Perspective!). This chapter, The Beginning, is dedicated to this village, its founding fathers and mothers, children, and all the activities that shaped my life. They are the basis of the title of the book, Self-Mentorship & Coaching Philosophy. My aim is to inspire you, the reader, not to ever think that you are on your own when there seems to be no one whispering wisdom into your ears. You have it inside you. All you need to do is to be active, observant, fully present, mindful, enthusiastic, energetic, and brave to make decisions and learn from both your successes and failures in life. That is the objective of this book.
