If You Are Active On PEERtrainer You Have Already Started This Process

As you learn to become a mentor to others, either informally or formally, you will develop a greater mastery of the area of focus. As you teach an idea, the questions that you get will force you to approach an idea from a different perspective.

The questions will force you to ask the same questions of yourself. Given how long the journey to health and self-discovery can be, embracing this role might just help to achieve your goals or further refine and clarify them.

Maybe you have started to run and lost some weight. Maybe you have run a 5k, or a 10k- or a marathon. Any level of success can enable you to start working on your mentoring skills. Simply being supportive on PEERtrainer is a great start- you have begun the process of leadership training just by being a group member.

Anything you have done can serve as an incredible inspiration to others. After you have been a member of PEERtrainer for a while, offer to write an article or upload a success story to share your knowledge and experiences with the others in the community.

You never know how the simplest story can help motivate another. Reading an informative article from someone like Joel Fuhrman can improve your knowledge dramatically. But people need to know that people "just like them" can and have done something. Often it is the most motivating thing in the world for them.
