Learn from people to improve ourselves
Learning is a process that go through the whole life of people. And learning from others is a common way. So here we have a question: what kind of people should we study from? From my perspective, we can learn more from people at a higher level than from people who are at the same level as us.
It is obvious to see that people at a higher level are usually better at one or more aspects than us, like experience, knowledge, cleverness, etc. So we can easily learn from these people. For instance, parents is the first teacher for a child. The child can learn a lot by mimic what his parents do, like how to make accqutaince with others, how to deal with problems he will encounter in his life and so on. This is a essential part for a child’s development. Although sometimes child may think his classmates share more views about something. But his classmates can hardly tell him what to do to solve problems because they don’t know either. Luckily, his parents know. So we can see that people at a higher level really can teach us a lot.
People at a higher level are usually friendly and likely to share their philosophy with others. How can they be at a higher level? They have suffered more, overcome more and achieve more. These things time leaves on them is a treasure left for us. By learning from experience, we can avoid to go into the same problem once they had. They are just like light, guiding us where to go and telling us which path is a more informed choice. Teachers, parents or even your boss, many of whom has a deep understanding of the world, are willing to teach you and help you. Under no circumstances should we give up the great oppotunity to learn from them.
Of course, there are a lot of people who are at the same level we can learn from. Our friends and classmates can definitely give us good advice about things they have experienced. But for things they have not experinced, we have no choice but to learn from people at a higher level.
Learning from others is a good way to improve ourselves and learning from people at a higher level is a better way.
