Paul took a young guy named Timothy under his wing. They had such a strong mentor/mentee relationship Paul called him his 'true son in the faith' (1 Timothy 1:2 GNT). The pair ended up travelling, helping to grow, and look after, churches. They even ended up in prison on more than one occasion for their Godly work together. Paul helped Timothy become the person that God wanted him to be, and he could only do that because Timothy knew how to take advice seriously.
It's so, so important to be able to learn from others. You will always have something to learn. André Agassi is a world-class tennis player who has a coach who isn't nearly as good on the court as he is. 'Tennis requires subtle adjustments crucial to winning and my coach... is the best... The older I get, the more valuable he becomes.' Even consistent winners need help to improve!
Chances are, there's someone in your church who could teach you a lot - someone to go back to with questions and problems and ideas and prayer requests and, well, everything.
So what now? Go on... ask for advice. It can sometimes feel a bit weird talking about faith with someone outside of our group of mates. Especially when the person seems to be one of those have-it-all-together people. But that's exactly the sort of person who might just make a great mentor. It's worth being brave.
