“Be patient and enjoy the small accomplishments along the way.” Meet Beedie Luminaries Mentor, Ric DiSimo.
Why did you decide to become a mentor with Beedie Luminaries?
I experienced having a mentor when I was young. At the time I had no direction but after meeting my mentor it changed my entire trajectory in life. If I can help just one young individual it would give me great satisfaction and a feeling of accomplishment in giving back to our youth.
What was the best advice you were ever given by your mentor?
Learn how to deal with people on a daily basis, not just those that you are close to but those you don’t know. It will help you navigate life so much easier.
What would you tell your 18 year-old self now?
Don’t rush into things. Be patient and enjoy the small accomplishments along the way. Most of all don’t beat yourself up after making mistakes. Mistakes are just a part of personal growth and are meant to teach us all as we evolve into our best selves.
