Career Path: 

Honestly, there's no easy way to answer this question. Life is about choices and taking risks (which can be positive or negative.) If you want to do great things in life, you need to seek opportunity.

Ideal Mentoring Relationship: 
There are three essential activities/characteristics for a successful mentoring relationship. First, the mentor and protégé must be committed to the relationship.
For the mentor, he/she should be serious about coaching the protégé and ensure he/she makes time to meet frequently with the protégé. For the protégé, he/she should define goals for what they want out of the mentor relationship.
In addition, the protégé should be active in engaging the mentor and sharing relevant information to help the mentor identify coaching moments. Second, both the mentor and protégé should understand the relationship is about guidance.
The goal is not for the mentor to provide answers or the protégé to follow a series of steps. The mentor relationship is a journey to help the protégé figure out which path to take for him/her.
Third, the mentor and protégé should see the relationship as an opportunity to learn. Even though the protégé is seeking guidance, the mentor should understand the context of the current environment and take it as an opportunity to learn from the protégé.
