We can learn more from people at a higher level
As youth to make contribution to society in the future,we have a lot of knowledge to learn,which not only learn from textbooks,but also from other people.They might be teachers,old-brothers and sisters even parents.The common feature of them is that they are at higher level than us.
The major reason for my propensity for the statement is that people in higher levels could be much of experience and knowledge in many aspects.With teachers,when you come across a problem that classmates also can’t deal with ,you could get in touched with them and ask for help.It is the same that if you want to cook a meal for yourself for the first time,parents’ advise is better than coeval who is almost newbie to kitchen.As for workforce freshmen,the experience of predecessor is of great importance to adapt to a new environment.When you are exposed to a strange environment,with peers competition,their opinion can make you less worried.
The other reason why I support the statement is that it is a common phenomena that we always pay respect to people in higher place. Because of respect,we are eager to be like them and learn from them.One thing we feel about that when we are in college is that professor,who is not only a teacher but also a expert in their domain,respected by students. We pay attention to the class and raise questions to them so that we can get more touches with them.It is similar to entertainment.More than once when movie actors mention their icons,no one would be with no fame.All the icon they respect are with great honor or with perfect acting skill.As to improve themselves,they could watch icon’s films and practice their performance.Thus,with respect to others,we have more impetus to fulfill ourselves.
Admittedly,we could also learn from people who are at same level as us.As confucius said: among the three people walking ahead of me, there must be one who could be a teacher of mine.For example,you are good at literature but have trouble in math and your friend is a math talent,you can turn him or her for help.However,they can’t compared with teachers in many aspects because of their age.Though as talent as Newton and Edison,without teachers’ guidance,they couldn’t make success.No matter what kind of people we are,we’d learn more from people in higher place.
In conclusion,with respect, we learn more from people in the higher place ,who are of much experience and knowledge in many aspects.
