Let me share my secret. I learn from other’s perfections or mistakes directly and indirectly. I read books, observe, listen, communicate to “all walks of life”, create bonds and make new friends.
In today’s DIY (do-it-yourself) mindset, majority will not acknowledge or recognize their mentor because pride and ego prevents it. It is written, “Nothing under the sun is truly new.”
What to do? Teach.
